I know Mad said not to post on weekends so I won't post the answers to your questions (it helps that I haven't written them yet) but I'm here and wanted to mention that for anyone in the US who's thinking about buying my prints, Imagekind has a promotion until Feb. 7, 2008 for free ground shipping in the US. I feel a bit awkward about such a shameless plug, but shipping is expensive. I just paid $13 US in shipping on a single print, so it also feels a bit like a public service announcement.
Now I'm no expert, but their custom framing seems very reasonably priced.* The prices they're asking for both the print AND mattes and framing is not much more than I paid just for custom frames for some photos a couple of years ago. So I'm working my way through all my images at there choosing frames and mattes (mats?) and papers that I will think will best suit each image. I've already chosen my recommendations for this one:
Or maybe you want the naked back that I've grunged up a bit since the last time you saw him? (Be forewarned that you can see the the texture of shirt imprinted across his shoulders on larger views, including a print.)
The images are links to the page where you can buy them, or you can have a look through my gallery via the widget in my sidebar that Sugar D made for me (I love having my own personal web designer!).
And it's still for a good cause. I'm donating at least 50 percent of the proceeds to the Stephen Lewis Foundation. The other portion of any profits will go towards a new lens for me. Yay!
*In the interest of full disclosure, I get a 5 percent commission on frames and mattes if you buy one of my prints and use Imagekind for framing. Over at Imagekind, there's a button to purchase as the artist intended, which includes the paper, mat(te?)(s) and frame that I chose.
