Buried Under Strip Malls

It takes a full hour to create a listing for ten of Nate’s strip malls. There are over 130 that he’s given me to post on Etsy. That’s not leaving me too much time to write a real post.

It’s been a wondrous experience to look at Nate’s drawing in-depth as I put them up for sale. Just as when we discovered the immense detail in the work as we framed the pieces for the gallery show, I’m finding out how amazing his vast canon actually is. Each piece contributes to an overall aesthetic, but they all vary to a degree, sometimes minutely, sometimes vastly. And seeing them online gives them an extra validity. Nate’s already got one follower and has sold two pieces (more on that later in the week).

That’s it for now. For me it’s back to work; 85 down, 47 to go.

If you haven’t checked out Nate’s shop, StripMallArt, it’s here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/StripMallArt
