Perception – Deck of 34 Original Drawings

I drew each card with Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens (India Ink), Pilot pen (Opaque white ink) and Prismacolor Colored pencil on antique & vintage wallpapers that I salvaged when renovating my house last year.

An ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals. They can be created with any medium on any surface but must adhere to the standard size of 2.5 by 3.5 inches.

I am thinking of making a box out of the vintage wallpaper to house these cards in that is similar to this box of cards. Once the box is done I’ll list the whole set in the shop. It’ll likely be priced around $1000.

And below is a detail of three of the cards.

And isn’t life (only) what we perceive it to be?

  1. You are so GREAT Jessica! I hope to be working for myself soon, and you continue to inspire me. This is worth more than $1,000, especially with the vintage box your going to make. WOW!!

    I plan to start block printing, and I’m looking for good paper. Would you have any suggestions?

  2. Those are awesome Jessica! So pretty, unique and interesting to look at all the little details. The wallpaper adds a really nice touch for backgrounds to your drawings.

  3. Thank you Kreativlink, Shanda and Scott!

    Shanda – I am not familiar with block printing on paper. I usppose any sort of high quality paper would work well such as Canson paper. I am familiar with block printing on fabric though. If you use fabric, print on 100% cotton or other natural fiber fabric but then again it depends on what you are using for ink.

  4. OK, Shanda and Cheryl they will be listed for $10,000. I need to make that box out of gold which gives me some ideas… now to find the supplies…

  5. These are great Jessica. Really wonderfully done. The one in the top right corner reminds me of snoopy for some reason. I love them.

  6. I love how they remind you all of different things! Thanks for sharing your comments and thoughts with me.

  7. Thank you Pam… one of these days I’ll get around to constructing the box I want to make for them.
