Wow, I just hit 20,000 tumblr followers! Thank you thank you thank you for taking the time to enjoy my work in the tumblr universe!
It’s been a looong time since I’ve done a print giveaway and I’m thinking this is the perfect occasion!
You see, there are these flat file drawers I have filled with prints that have been deemed “unfit to sell”. These guys have little dents, scratches and blobs but are totally perfect to hang on your wall for FREE.
So to enter the giveaway all you have to do is reblog this post! Next friday, September 26th at noon I’ll be randomly selecting a group of people to receive some of these beauties!

Oscar Santillan: Daybreak, visual installation
South American artist Oscar Santillan plays with shadows as his artwork focuses on creating ornate window installation right on the wall of the gallery.
The installation entitled Daybreak is created through a sanding process where the artist sands paint off the wall and uses the powder that falls off to create the floor shadow replica. This technique is not only clever, but it is an extremely simple and effective way to make use of as little material as possible.
His work plays with optical illusions as well as with light, shadows and perspective. The results are beautiful and intricate windows, that would most likely be seen in cathedrals. Just like the way sun and light shines through windows and emanates a shadow, Oscar Santillan effectively accomplishes this with his beautiful pieces
