Insider Newsletter Sign Up
Just about everyone imagines owning beautiful, handmade fine art.
But it can be a hassle. Stuffy galleries, high prices, and “connoisseurs”…
If you don’t buy from a gallery, you may not know what you are buying, or who you are buying from.
Who needs that?
I certainly don’t. So I make my own art.
I’m Deacon, and I’d like to show you into the world of Fine Art.
No pretense, no noses in the air, just good art, and straight talk.
I’ve got a promotion right now for my current series of Prints, called the “101 Woodblock Series”. Each print is unique, hand-made, hand-signed, and original.
(You can see the kind of stuff I’m working on at the top of the page)
This morning, out near my home in Union Square, San Francisco, I bought a coffee and a muffin for more than I am charging for these prints. The price is just enough to help with the cost of materials (paper, woodblocks, ink), plus a little to help me ship it to you in a rigid Priority Mail envelope.
This “shipping and handling” price is exclusive, only for my Insider Newsletter subscribers.
Everyone else pays full price.
Why am I doing this? My hope is that you will love your Woodblock Print, you will read my newsletter, and you will like my art in the future.
If you decide you don’t like the newsletter, no hard feelings, you can unsubscribe anytime.
This price won’t be around forever.
46 62 81 101* fine art prints finished, right now. I’m finished with all 101, so this offer is gonna end soon, around the middle to end of February. The price will go up at least 400%.
You don’t want to buy from some nameless dealer in a gallery or art show (or internet for that matter).
You get “behind the scenes” looks into how I make the art. I’ve got audio and video content in the works, available only to newsletter subscribers.
I want you to know who I am, exactly what I make, why I make it, and what it means to me.
I think that you will appreciate and understand my art better if I share everything with you.
What Else is in the Newsletter?
Here’s the thing: almost everyone I know secretly wants to make art themselves. They use the laundry list of excuses, not having the time, the money, or the skills (I made these excuses myself for years). All I needed, and all they need, is a little helping hand. A little push, and a little organization to fit it in to your busy life.
It turns out that is something I do too:
I help people make their own Fine Art
I help with all the other stuff that folks don’t like to talk about. Promoting. Selling. Marketing. Galleries and Museums seem to have a vested interest in maintaining the prestige and ambiguity of Fine Art. We’re gonna tear that veil to shreds.
If you are an artist, or you are interested in collecting art, or making art, or selling art, I’ll have the good stuff in the Newsletter for you.
Art should not be mysterious.
I don’t intend for my art to be an enigma, or vague, or incomprehensible to anybody who didn’t get a masters degree in Art Theory. The art I make is open, and I’m ready to share with you everything you could ever know about it.
Sign up today, right here, and choose your original, unique fine art Print from the 101 Woodblock Series immediately.
