Custom Painted/Framed Original by PinstripeChris Custom Painted/Framed Original by PinstripeChris
This is an original piece named "201" after the early Ford I-4 motor, and was done entirely freehand on 5"x7" illustration board using only Ultra Fine Sharpies. In addition, the satin black frame was hand painted using gloss enamels and a paint brush to extend the artwork out onto the frame. I really love doing the frames extended pieces- they really seem to add more fun to everything. For Sale! Available here: www.PinstripeChris.com/Store

great idea but i would suggest using a slightly darker color for the front white and a regular white for the inside of the frame so that the shadow isn't so easy to see :)

I tint the white enamel to more closely match the papers white, seems to work alright :)

The Original is Black ink via Ultra Fine Sharpies, and the white and black on the frame is done with gloss enamels via paint brush- both done completely freehand. Kind of a cool way to do mixed media

well its good to hear you're getting something, I haven't managed to sell any drawings i've ever done but I haven't tried since none of them are framed and it costs a pretty penny to do so, keep up the great work buddy

Convincing people of "value" can be something of a challenge- but this is how I keep the lights on so keep at it. Not to mention I totally love what I do! Selling is the hardest part, but not impossible. And you're right- frames can be reallllly spendy
