Canvasing

there are many companies advertising amazing discounts and offering coupon codes to put your jpgs on canvas. i have already begun ordering my drawings on canvas, to be displayed in the libraries and stores with my art book.

two pieces arrived and looked splendid.

three pieces arrived from one company—such terrible quality, this poet cant conjure words to describe. it has been a saga to return the canvases. i even contacted the BBB, and it worked because the company got in touch….but it is not yet resolved, alas.

something i realized as i begin to have the canvases made, is they are offered only in particular sizes. i dont draw with sizes in mind! so sometimes i need to modify a drawing before i upload it to a canvas site.

i drew these (yesterday) 12.19.15. i had to add borders all-round the actual intended borders, in order for the drawings to fit a standard canvas. i am curious how they will come out, since i used colored pencils (of the digital variety) to draw them. it will be like a texture upon a texture. we shall see!

with borders it looks like this, but stretched on the frame the extra borders wont show. whats ridiculous about this, is Paint doesnt show inches anywhere. you cant know how many inches or centimeters….only pixels and resolution, so its been a guessing game.  i suppose when i draw something i can choose ratios that will produce standard sizes.
