Postcards from Paradise! (Micro-Gallery Creation Station)

As a starving artist and wanna-be art collector that also harbors severe kitsch sympathies, I propose the following alternative for those who can’t afford a $10,000 canvas or who don’t live near a major art gallery or museum:


Imagine being the curator of your very own art gallery, a gallery in a three ring binder! For $2 or $3, you can buy an exciting image or photograph, maybe some vintage advert or a micro-version of a famous painting (perhaps with a mustache painted on it…) and add it to your REAL WORLD, physical gallery! Seriously, postcards are great (and fun to make, if you’re into the whole HANDMADE scene!) I’ve owned postcards by Shag and early Disney concept art from the Haunted Mansion and oddity and freak-show cards for things like Jake the Alligator Man and Bigfoot. I love that stuff, and I would love to get my hands on more interesting and humorous and weird art and photography, SO…

I would like to dedicate this page to links to places where postcards are available to buy. If you have a favorite artist or tourist trap or manufacturer (whether print on demand, like Zazzle or RedBubble, or physically printed or hand-made, like on Etsy.) I want you to send your links here, maybe with an image or a brief description. If it’s YOUR art, that’s even better! The trick is to link up with a ton of great artwork, photographs, and images, right here. Keep it fresh and interesting, and let poor slobs like me invest in some great work and FEEL (however artificially) like I’m in touch with something fancy. In the meantime, I’ll post links to some of the postcards that I have made available for all you peeps to look at (and maybe drop a couple of bucks on). Sound like fun!?!?! It does to me…
