Shopping List: Cheap Paintings + Long Books

For the Christmas rush (and to make some space here), I have five paintings that I’m clearing out for the slim price $150 (each) which includes shipping. This is far less than I normally sell paintings for! They should make it anywhere in the world by Christmas. I accept PayPal ( First come, first serve. The following paintings are available:

  • A Galvanized Corpse
  • Diving For Percocets
  • Broken
  • The Cure Of Folly
  • The Opium Den

Yes, that means I finished off A Galvanized Corpse today. It’s not the greatest picture of it (it definitely looks much better in real life), but you can click through to see it at top resolution:

Speaking of helping you with things to give for Christmas, and helping me afford Christmas, I just got the hardcopy version of my interview book. It’s really beautiful and the quality is great. Seeing it as a 460 page hardcover is really nice and inspires me to keep working on projects… I think of the things that give me joy in life, the “process of creation” is definitely high on that list. I love going from idea to product and seeing something once only imagined become real.


  1. Looks awesome Shannon,
    I think my hubby was peeking at this for me for a birthday/yule gift so I’ll let him know the hardcover version is ready to go.

    To Peted3: I use local indie bookstore for ordering self published books since I dont have a credit card. Maybe there is one in your neighborhood as well?

  4. It’s nice to see what the hardcover looks like in person! I ordered mine about a week ago, still waiting for it to arrive… ;)

    I’m in doubt if I get this book in hard cover or the calendar book or the modcon book…

    PeteD3 – The unfortunate thing about the price structure of Lulu and other POD publishers is that there’s no real discount for bookstores. I’d be happy to do an edition for a bookstore, and if they order *ten* I could possibly knock off around 20%, but it’s less of a saving than they’re used to.

    Alternately, if you want to mail me a money order for a book and shipping, I’ll send you my copy and just re-order one for myself… Happy to sign/inscribe it also if that’s something you’d like.

    Peted3: I just give the store the address where to find the book (Lulu), and they will order it. Of course they take a little commission but thats ok, its the easiest way for me since I can pay with cash.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
