Recently, Barry from Thumbtack Press contacted me and told me about the new UGLYDOLL prints that are out now. Squeee! The only way to describe how much I LOVE all art is to just say I feel like I need a cigarrette after I’ve come in contact with it, if you know what I mean. And I don’t even smoke.
Before the hummingbird could even find her nose, I gave her about half a dozen UGLYDOLLS. I admit they were more for me than her but she loves them now, especially when she uses one to hit me in the face.
I’ve been taking a look around the site for the past several days and found a great artist, Andrea D’Aquino. Here’s a really beautiful piece by her. There’s also an artist, Doug Boehm, and this painting really stood out for me because of a particular reason that I’m sure you can spot.
Thumbtack Press also have a really cool feature called the “Virtual Room”. You can preview art on a virtual wall and you can even upload your own photo to see what a piece of art looks like in your house.
Barry, from Thumbtack Press, was such a great sport in doing a Q and A with me.
Elle: If the zombie apocalypse happened tomorrow, which weapon would you want to have to fight these brain eaters?
A. a flame thrower.
B. an unlimited supply of ninja throwing stars.
C. a chainsaw.
D. a shoelace because you’re bad ass.
E. other and what would it be?
Barry: I’m gonna go with chainsaw (gross though) and some ninja stars. But I’d want at least the laptop gun and that one that could shoot through walls from Perfect Dark. Heat seeking anything are always useful, and also rocket launchers. Gotta have rocket launchers. And maybe like little nuclear bombs?? Also drones.
Elle: If you could be stuck in an elevator with anyone who would it be?
Barry: Probably just a plug and a laptop with good wi-fi, then I could Skype my family. Otherwise Woody Allen.
Elle: If you could drop everything and go anywhere in the world (real or fantasy), where would it be?
Barry: My own island!
Elle: Favorite guilty pleasure?
Barry: Pamplemousse La Croix. Guilty.
Elle: If you could send any celebrity/reality star into space so you’d never have to hear about them again, who would it be?
Barry: Britney Spears. Good question!
Elle: Which would you rather win? An Oscar, a Grammy, or a Tony.
Barry: Grammy definitely.
Elle: What’s one of your favorite books?
Barry: All my exhibition catalogues.
Thumbtack Press, the affordable art print site, has a new partnership with UGLYDOLL. Remember those little plush doll characters Wage and Ox? There are a bunch of them now, UGLYDOLL is blowing up, and Thumbtack Press has the exclusive right to offer prints of the little guys in unexpected spots. They’re in a supermarket, walking the streets, pondering life, and even considering Ramen. It’s great for a kid’s bedroom or really anywhere.
TTP has thousands of other prints too – starting at $19.99.
Go on over and take a look at these awesome prints!
