My Art-O-Mat Works Are Done!
Hello, all! Back in May, I submitted a prototype to Artists in Cellophane with the hope of acceptance as an Art-O-Mat artist.
What is an art-o-mat artist? I'm so glad you asked! ;) It is an artist that creates 2 x 3in. mini original works of art to be distributed via vintage cigarette dispensers that have been re-purposed to dispense art. The picture below will help those who are visual people like me...
I chose to create my prototype using "found" items. I'm happy to say I was accepted and got to work right away. I was traveling a lot this summer so it took me several months to finish, but I was able to complete my first 50 original works. I packaged them and shipped them off today! I can't wait to see where they all find their homes. If you happen upon an Art-O-Mat machine and see my work in there.....you should totally purchase a piece! I promise, you'll be glad you did. ;) And then come back here and tell me where you found it!
Here are a few pics of my process and a video with some of my finished pieces. Happy hunting!
