With the accessibility of original, affordable art that the internet provides, there is no excuse for the bare walls in your apartment or home. My affection for the macabre draws me to Straw Castle Design‘s latest offering. “Pushing Up Daisies” is yet another stunning, hand carved block print. Every step in the creation of this print – the carving of the block, the printing, and the hand cutting – was performed solely by the artist, Derrick Castle. You can view progression of the project on Derrick’s YouTube channel.

This current Licorice Black edition is limited to only 30 pieces. At the time of my purchase last night, half had already been sold. Mine will be up year round, but it would also be a great addition to your Halloween decor. You can purchase this original art from Straw Castle Design’s Etsy shop.

Available today for only $10 (until about 1 a.m. EST Saturday morning), Ript Apparel is offering “Samurai Formers” by Ninjaink. If you like Ninjaink’s work, be sure to check out all of the officially licensed shirts and prints that he has designed for Marvel, The Transformers, and Star Wars that are available from Mighty Fine.
