birds
this is breaking news. i found this site: vintage printables, with high resolution images of birds, fish, botanticals, and all kinds of other stuff.

i had an immediate attraction to this ostrich because he has an obvious swagger, but i needed something horizontal. so i picked another bird, took him to kinkos and had him printed out for $30 at 27.25" by 19.25" (to fit an ikea frame)

and now, over the bed delight. artwork on the supercheap because i ain't got no J O B.

so here's your inspiration pic: go forth and blow some shit up and frame it

  6. Is there a way you could gently "age" or distress these, so they don't look new? Like maybe leave them next to window that gets strong sunlight or something? Suggestions like that?

  7. perfect idea. ive needed something behind our bed and had been leaning towards hanging from a jazzy curtain rod basically just a decorative curtain (because it was both cheap and large), but the print might be a bit...classier...
