How to get one of my newspaper blackout prints for less than $20

As many of you may know, 20x200 is down, and I don’t have time right now to release any new prints in the store, so here’s a cheap option that makes a good valentine:

Buy a copy of Newspaper Blackout and tear out your favorite poem
Obtain a cheap 8x10 frame w/ a 5x7 matte, maybe from IKEA.
Frame your poem.
Of course, the same method will work with any of your favorite illustrations from Steal Like An Artist — just substitute a square frame with a 5x5 matte.

Enjoy! And join my mailing list or follow me on Twitter to find out when I have new art for sale.

In the newsletter, Charlie writes:

Today’s edition, and the book it came from, all originated from a list of 10 principles Austin wished someone had shared with him when he was first starting out. Eager to share his list with everyone (as he is with all his work, including “deleted scenes” and his sketchbook), he turned his pointers from a talk to college students into a blog post (which quickly went viral), and eventually into a book. It wasn’t long before Steal Like an Artist became his second New York Times bestseller.

Chad Hagen took me to breakfast and the Walker yesterday in Minneapolis. He’s a great artist (I have a small, growing collection of his work) and a real mensch. Do check him out and buy his 20x200 prints!

Art and artists are very much misunderstood in our culture… Because we have this ethic of purpose and utility, and art is not useful in a very direct way. And I think that, also, our concept of artists is that they’re lazy somehow and that they don’t want to work hard… In fact, what I discovered in working with artists is that most artists, by and large, are not doing it because they want to be the next Andy Warhol — they’re doing it at huge personal expense and struggling to keep a practice going while trying to figure out how to make ends meet. They’re not making art because they want to make money, they make art because they have something to say that they want to share with the world.
20x200 founder Jen Bekman, one of the Internet’s pioneering creative entrepreneurs, on Design Matters – the entire interview is very much worth a listen. (via explore-blog)
