Five New Fine Art Prints!

Happy 12th of July! Here are a handful of new prints I just dropped into my store! First up: a clean re-paint of Ruck on a box top with some accents from my AP's. These are 8x8 printed on 300gsm Entrada Rag, and it's an open run!
The Proportionate Reaction of Animal Warfare is an older piece that I thought had been lost forever, but I found high-res scans of it hidden away in a little nook. 12x16 on 300gsm Breathing Color Elegance Velvet, limited to 50.
I did some digital manipulations of photos of my customs and kinda love them all. I'll have a bunch of these coming sporadically, and here are the first few....

Milky Loopholes (Dark and Light Versions) are 8x10 printed on 300gsm Entrada Rag, and are limited to 25 of each.
This is a Rebel Ink custom I painted, inverted and color manipulated in glorious purple and blue. These are 11x14 on 300gsm Entrada Rag, and are limited to only 10!
Check back on Monday or Tuesday for five more prints dropping in my store, as well as a teaser of the 30 Androids that I've been working on for so long now coming next week as well. Thanks for looking!!

Special Inverted Fine Art Prints!

Here's a look at my super duper special inverted prints! I LOVE THEM!!! I'll be sporadically putting more "negative" versions of old and new pieces up here and there every few months, and this is the first batch of them.
All my inverted prints will now and forever be super limited editions of only 10 each.
WHAT!?!? Did you say you're only making 10 of them? Why yes I did!
Some of these are more than half gone already, and I'm just now posting them on my blog, so they won't be around for very long.
These are all printed on 300gsm Moab Entrada Cotton Rag and are available in my store: www.ardabusrubber.bigcartel.com.

I've also found 600dpi scans of two pieces that I thought had been lost forever, so there will be two new prints coming that I'm super super excited about!!! 12x16 prints of my "Animal Warfare" piece, and big ass 17x22 prints of a 'rucked' up Boba Fett. Yes, I actually painted something Star Wars, and yes there will be prints of it. OMG what is the world coming to.

Everything I've been posting has been prints or shirts in the recent because I'm so freaking backed up with customs, so there will be an intense explosion of them very soon, so not to worry! And for everyone who's waiting, you are all amazing, thanks for being so patient.... 32 androids, five 8" dunnys, about 20 3" dunnys, 3 PAWS!, a JAWS!, 3 skullheads, 5 owls, horses, some o-no sushi, gummy bears, cheese, garden, sky, space, more cheese.... now i'm hungry.

The Ultimate Legend - 12x16 Prints available NOW!

Hey everyone it's time for a new piece!

I did this as a tribute to The Ultimate Warrior (RIP) and his amazing life and reluctantly decided to make a very limited run of them available. He had a huge influence on me growing up and hopefully hardcore Warrior fans will appreciate these thoughtful renditions of his legendary likeness. Maybe this is where my love of crazy people and bright neon colors comes from??? The run numbers correspond with the date and mask color of each print. Done with ink on paper, and digitally colored.
Available in four super limited versions:
- Wrestlemania VI Neon version (top left) - Classic Warrior colors. Limited to only 6, for his victory at WM6.
- Rookie version (top right) - Black and yellow, the mask he wore during his debut match as Ultimate Warrior on 10/25/87. Limited to only 2, for the number of minutes it took for him to win the match.
- Fire Paint version (bottom left) - From his Survivor Series match 11/24/88. Since he was on a team of five, this one is limited to 5.
- My Favorite Color version (bottom right) - Pretty self explanatory, I just had fun with the colors! This one is limited to only 8, marking the day he died. RIP Warrior.

These measure 12x16 and are printed on Breathing Color 310gsm Elegance Velvet Cotton Rag. Each one comes signed and numbered.

$25 each plus shipping, available in my store www.ardabusrubber.bigcartel.com.

Thanks for looking, LONG LIVE WARRIOR.

Two New Canvas' for Two Old Shows

In my lack of posting over the last months, these three pieces for shows slipped through the posting-on-the-internet-cracks, so here they are!

First is "Maybe It's Not Really A Heart" and was done for Dragatomi's Art of Love show on Valentine's Day. This one is sold but there are prints coming soon when I get a good scan of it!

Next is "The Greatest Light", a 7" custom Bomb Hugger. This piece is available via Dragatomi here.

Last but not least is "Four Corners" and was done for the Art Without Borders show this year at Art Whino. Fine art prints of this are available here, as well as a special inverted version here.
Thanks for looking!

New! The Loops of Paradise 8x10 Prints AVAILABLE NOW!

This one was painted with acrylics on 8x10 canvas board and was super fun.  I hope to make more pieces like this since I was able to do whatever my mind wanted. The best kind of creation! Titled "The Loops of Paradise" and was a gift for my fiance for Valentie's Day. Fine art prints of this piece are available in my store here. Thanks for looking!!

An Array of Ardabus Fine Art Prints AVAILABLE NOW!

It's been a rough few months here in the Rubber Studio, and I haven't had time to put anything up on here and it's been making me antsy, but I've been working nonstop and it's time to get back to posting! I got a big fine art printer, so a whole bunch of my artwork that's been super hard to get or was unavailable in the past have been made into fine art prints and are up in my store now!! The prints will give me more time to focus on the massive list of commissions and customs I have, without having to constantly add more to that list just to get the bills paid every month. Click HERE to visit my store.
I currently have fifteen different prints up and about nine more on the way, including the long awaited "My First Crush" Samus print. All the prints are limited with very low run numbers, between 25-50 depending on the piece, with sizes including 5x7, 8x10, 11x14, 12x16, 16x20 and 17x22. I will be putting a new print in my store every few weeks, and i'm also doing special "inverted" versions of certain pieces, that will be limited to only 10. All prints are archival quality, printed on 300gsm Moab Entrada 100% Cotton Rag. All prints come with a print sleeve and sizes below 12x16 come with a backing board. I also do combined shipping, only $1 for each additional print!
And for the first five people who read this and purchase something, can take 15% off with the code
"BLOGONLY15".
I have soooo many customs that i'll be sending out over the next few months, and I appreciate everyone's patience while I get them all done.
Thanks for looking and have a splendiferous day!

Blacklight Sketch Munny and Dunny Pair

I did these guys with neon sharpies, the ones that glow under blacklight!! They are the brightest sharpies I've ever used, but the photos didn't come out as bright as I wanted. I'll blame it on my new lighting configuration =D

Ruck Madness!

Happy Holidays everyone! A lot has happened since my last post. First off, if you are one of the 4 people still waiting for your inverted Ruck Dunny, they haven't been lost in the mail!! I reverted to painting them one at a time, the assembly line type thing just wasn't working and day after day I found myself making zero progress. Adam K., Lee, Tasha, and Jason, yours are being finished right now and will ship in the next few days! Now it's photo time =D

First is a group shot... the first batch of the finished custom Ruck inverts with the last 3 AP counterparts.

Next is a custom Android called "Ruck Morph"

Here's a photo of the Android with the Dunny
Lastly is a special sketch print I made only for the 12 people who ordered the inverted customs. I made these as a thank you for everyone who was so patient with me because I took SOOOO long to finish the customs. Thanks!!!!
