Today is the final day to purchase the “Emerging from the Deepness” limited edition print. The 5 day timed release ends tonight so now is the last chance to pick one up before they leave the Shop for good.
I’m so proud of this painting. It is a real showcase of everything that I want my work to be. Mysterious, playful, and atmospheric. The forest setting of this piece is truly from deepest part of my creative soul. Which is one of the themes behind this painting. Bringing these images out from the dark, conceptual ether and into the light of reality has always been the most magical part of creating. I love it so much.
I wouldn’t be able to do any of this with out all of your support. It’s been a wild journey with my work, filled many twist and turns; triumphs and hardships. Through out it all, you’ve allowed me the freedom to grow technically, emotionally and conceptually over the years. You have my undying gratitude.
And a huge thank you to those that have already purchased one of these wonderful prints. You’re helping me continue my creative journey and I also just think these prints are really lovely. It’s my first collaborative print with theprintspace and I couldn’t be more pleased with them. They are the final result of this painting’s journey and I know that you’ll love them.
Got some solid, in the books, dates for you concerning upcoming Print Shop developments.
I’m phasing all printing and fulfillment duties over to theprintspace on June 21st 2023. Which means that I’ll have some of the current prints in my Shop available with new options—such as sizing and frame options—but that also means a good portion of my prints will be leaving the Shop. Here is selection of some that will be phased out next week.
To see all the prints that will be leaving, go to this collection inside my Shop. If you've been waiting on grabbing any of these, now is the time.
Note: Some of the themed prints—such as the Halloween and winter themed paintings—could be released again in a future date closer to those occasions. Definitely going to have a Halloween collection coming out in the Fall.
New Print Release
My next print release will be on Wednesday June 28th and will run through July 3rd. It will be a timed print release so after July 3rd, they won’t be available for purchase ever again.
The print will be of an unreleased painting called, “Emerging from the Deepness.” Here’s a preview of the painting.
Really excited about this new piece. I’ll post the full image next week when I officially announce the new print.
I’ll be moving most of my future print releases over to a timed release format. This format will be way more beneficial to my upcoming work schedule. So if you don’t want to miss any future releases, be sure to keep updated with this newsletter and check in with my social media accounts:
Hello everyone! Big big changes coming when my partnership with theprintspace begins this June.
After careful consideration, I’ve decided to switch the printing and fulfillment operation of my print shop over to creativehub, which is run by the UK based company, theprintspace. They will be taking over those duties starting in early June. I’m very proud of the quality of my prints and how I’ve built up this Shop over the past 13+ years. While I really enjoy running my print shop—and being in control of every aspect of the production—it is monumental task for a single person. As the Shop has continued to grow, so has my time commitment to running it all and its become an overwhelming endeavor. This is the major reason for the switch as my time for actual creative work has continued to shrink. With a number of projects and new endeavors coming on the horizon, it’s a step I felt like I needed to take.
That being said, there are a number of amazing benefits to along with it.
Quality: While I’m extremely proud of the quality of my prints, I’m not a professional printer by any means. theprintspace are top notch printers and they will produce the best print possible on super quality paper—which I’ll have options on which is very cool. I’ll be involved in every step of the printing process, so all prints will have my personal stamp of approval and a certificate of authenticity to go along with it.
International Shipping: One of the biggest challenges for me running my Shop has been shipping—specifically international shipping. Shipping outside of the USA is outrageously expensive for everyone involved and has also been very extremely inconsisent—especially with USPS and international local postal services. Since theprintspace is based out of the UK, shipping to Europe will be a breeze and I’ll be able to offer DHL courier service to the whole world. And all at a much more affordable price than I could ever offer. Such a relief.
Size Options: Each new print will now come in 3 different sizes—small, medium, & large—each with their own editions. This will give you even more freedom to choose a print size that will best fit your space. I get a ton of inquiries if my prints come in different sizes. Now they will.
Framing: This one is huge. I’ll be able to offer ready to hang frames for each print in each size. There will be 3 options-white, black, & natural wood—and I’ll be able to customize the mat size and mat color for each one. So awesome.
Consistent Fulfillment: While I always try to my best to get prints order out within a week of receiving them, there are times when I just can’t do it. When I’m finishing up a painting for a show, or have a strict deadline looming, there is simply no time for me to print, pack, and ship orders. It’s also hard for me to stay on top of large amounts of orders during busy times like the Holidays. Now orders will always leave within 48 hours, and with the courier service, will reach you within 5 days of shipping.
Environmental Benefits: theprintspace is a 100% end-to-end carbon neutral company that offsets all its emissions and invests in renewable energy sources. This is very important to me in these times.
Print Availability: When theprintspace takes over printing and fulfillment in June, I’ll be removing the vast majority of prints from my Shop. A select few open edition prints will always be available and limited edition prints will be more time based. When new limited edition prints are released, older prints will be phased out. This is to reduce the somewhat overwhelming amount of options in my Shop at any given time. Prints will be more curated and will be rotating. Some current prints will be re-released again in some manner, but most of them will be gone forever.
Price: With the move to a 3rd party printing and fulfillment service will come a jump in pricing. But the options for size and framing should accommodate most budgets.
I’ll be making a separate post about this, but if you see any prints you like in the Shop, now is the time to pick up one before they disappear and also before they go up in price.
All in all, I’m super excited for the move to theprintspace. It’s going give you way more options and way more consistency in shipping. And it will also give me a lot more time to focus on creating which is so so important.
Thank you so much for reading and supporting me up to this point. Let me know if you have any additional questions.
I've launched a couple new product collections in the past couple weeks that I can finally share with you.
The first is for all the gamers out there.
Very excited about my first collection. I've been an avid Magic the Gathering player for a while now and a good playmat is a must. I'm now partnering with Inked Gaming, who actually make my favorite playmats. Just great quality all around and they really stand up to active playing. I've been wanting to offer playmats for so long but I could never logistically do it in my Shop. Now I can finally do it through Inked Gaming.
So if you play any cards games such as Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, or Yu Gi Oh--or know anyone that does--pick one of these bad boys up. Also, make sure you get the stitched edging. It looks great and adds a lot of durability. Nothing kills a playmat faster than the edges coming up.
Also some love for the PC Gamers. I've been using playmats as large mousepads for years--both for work and for PC gaming--and I love all the mouse room. It makes such a nice working & gaming surface. Turns out I don't have to use playmats anymore because Inked Gaming also makes giant extended mousepads.
These look so cool and they are huge. These come in 3 sizes with the standard coming in at 25" long and the largest XXL size coming in at 48" long! Your desktop can essentially become a painting. I got a couple of these heading my way right now.
Next is my newest collection with Gelaskins. I've been working with Gelaskins for over a decade and they've always been great to collaborate with as an artist. They make super quality phone cases and they also make skins for anything you can think of. Here is my newest collection:
Some really great pieces in the collection this year. They also have these iPad skins that look amazing:
Hush now. Listen. Seriously shut up. Do you hear that?
Are those the sounds of merry scratches inside a cardboard box of winter night? Have you heard objects being pushed off tables only to find a pile of neatly stacked gifts instead of utter wreckage? Is that the pitter pattering of paws zooming down your hallway followed by the strong aroma of nutmeg, pine, kitty litter, and a hint of savings?
These sounds can only mean one thing. Cyber Back Cat has traveled the Meowltiverse to bring jolly mischief and Holiday cheer back to our mundane realm. Time to celebrate their arrival.
From Monday November 28th through Friday December 16th, all items in Andy Kehoe Art Shop will be 15% off using code:
That means even the special edition metal prints. There are only a couple of the Together in the Maelstrom Metal Prints left so grab one while you can. They can be found in the PRODUCED section of The Forest Foundry.
Speaking of metal prints, Cyber Black Cat has brought something truly wondrous with them this year.
Midwinter Orison Metal Prints will go live on Monday, November 28th at 4:00 PM eastern. You can go to the Forest Foundry for more info:
Not only that, Cyber Black Cat is bringing PUZZLES!
I have 10 of these new puzzles and they will also go on sale Monday November 28th at 4:00 PM eastern in my Other Products Section.
HOLIDAY CUTOFF DATES: Any orders received after these dates will be shipped after Christmas. Domestic Orders (USA): December 19th International Orders: December 12th
No shipments can be guaranteed but these dates give you the best shot. I’ll do everything I can to make sure your orders reach you in time. For International orders, I’ll be shipping DHL whenever its possible. DHL will reach you within a week which is amazing, but I can’t offer it to everyone because it is insanely expensive to certain parts of the world.
Otherwise I’ll ship via USPS Priority International, which I can’t predict at all. USPS has been pretty erratic with international shipping lately so I don’t have the greatest faith in them. If you want it for sure in time for the Holiday, DHL is the way to go.
If you’d like to know if you qualify for DHL before ordering, email me a message, including your shipping address, to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll check. And if it is really expensive, and you still really want to get an order in time, I can work with you to split the extra cost.
The veil between the living and the spirit realm becomes ever thinner. The time of ghosts and witches are upon us again.
Turns out, I love painting ghosts and witches. This will be the 4th year of me continuing my Halloween themed digital paintings for Patreon and its another reason for me to love this time of year.
Here is my newest: Arise O Gossamer Night
This year, I made the brilliant decision to do my piece in September so that its actually done in time for Halloween. Big brain move. Had a lot of fun making this one, though it did take many twists and turns along the way. I documented it on my Patreon page if you're interested in that type of thing.
Limited edition prints are available now in my Shop.
I have a few new metal prints in the works including Night Cathedral and Midwinter Orison. I'll be releasing the previews for them soon along with the presale period.
I've fast tracked this metal print specifically so that it'll be available in time for the Holidays. If all goes to plan, these will be produced and in my studio by December.
If you want to be notified when this metal print goes on pre-sale, email me:
Hope all of you out there sharing this crazy winter weather are holding up ok. We had a crazy ice storm over the weekend which shut me down for a couple days. Was ok on the power front, but had no desire to brave the icy streets to get to the studio. Our dog, Gizmo, on the other hand loves the snow and is completely living it up. Unfortunately for us, he's got those short legs and his underside quickly becomes a little snowball collecting factory.
Patreon Digital Painting
Made my first Patreon Digital Painting of the year and it was an involved one. So many details in this one. I've been working on a story for a while and this scene popped into my head. Hopefully I'll be able to share the larger story soon.
Some images are very hard to translate to small screens and this is definitely one of them. I ultimately had the print for this image in mind and it does look amazing as a print.
You can find the prints in my Shop or follow the link below:
And one last thing. I have a new collection out with Gelaskins. They collaborate with artists to make phone cases, iPad/Laptop skins, and a whole manner of other products. Here is a sample of some of my new cases:
If you want some new swag for your devices, you can find my collection here:
When Cyber Black Cat first traveled through time and space to reach our Earth dimension, he thought he was sent here to save us from an existential threat... but he was mistaken. He was sent here to save us some moolah. (I was going to type meuwlah but it seemed confusing and the word moolah is already baseline weird. And is that too many cat puns?) In any case...
Cyber Black Cat has arrived and so begins the 2 week sale. Use code:
Hello Everyone! Wanted to prep you for the upcoming holidays and to share my new show with you.
Cyber Black Cat Monday: Pandemic Edition
Cyber Black Cat will warp into our existence again this holiday season, but due to the pandemic (which he had no part in), things will have to be a bit different this go around.
First, the sale will last 2 weeks instead of 1 week since Cyber Black Cat realizes there is a lot of madness going on in our world right now. The sale will be for 15% off anything and everything in the Shop using the code: CYBERBLACKCAT2020
Also, with international shipping being the way it is, I’ll be taking international orders until December 11th, then I'm going to ship all international orders together in batches. The first batch will go out December 4th and the last batch on December 15th. Since USPS is a disaster now, I’ll be holding on to all international orders received from now on and shipping all those orders via DHL for the holidays. You should get your print order with in a week via DHL which is excellent. Orders via USPS have taken around 4-8 weeks to be delivered. That's insane and its something I can't count on for holiday shipments this year. DHL is kind of a pain for single print orders though so I only ship orders in batches through them, hence me waiting until I get a bunch of orders in.
Lastly, I'll be releasing a few new prints from my recent show on Monday along with the announcement of the start Cyber Black Cat. It will be 2 larger prints and 2 smaller prints.
Holiday Cutoff Dates. Any orders received after these dates will be shipped after Christmas. Domestic (USA): December 18th International: December 11th
Art Show: The Unreal is Here
My latest show opened at Outré Gallery in Melbourne on Friday and here are the paintings I did. These are all oil & acrylic on wood panel.
Son of a Krampus. Thanksgiving and the holiday season are upon us. How does this happen every year? One day there are inappropriately early Christmas decorations popping up and all of a sudden you're waking up on New Years day with a (hopefully) mild hangover, shaking confetti out of your hair, and wondering where the hell the last month and change went. As we helplessly drift towards the holiday black hole, there is but one hope to pull us from the maw of the jolly void... Cyber Black Cat
Cyber Black Cat returns to our dimension on December 4th, bringing a week long sale at Andy Kehoe Shop. All items will be 15% off including prints, originals, and puzzles. **Guild Members get an additional %15 off on top of their Guild Discount**
He'll also be bringing a print release along with him. (Details below)
Speaking of prints, I recently released my newest Patreon digital painting as a print and it is available now.
Printing this particular piece was pretty tricky due to the subtleties in the dark tones and I kept losing a lot of the details in my first attempts. I really love this image so I wanted the print to be as good as possible. This lead me to explore some different paper types and I eventually landed on a Satin gloss paper. It worked like a charm and really picked up those tiny details. This is the first print of mine that is printed on something other than matte paper and I think it fits this image so well.
