Check out our new portfolio site for cool stuff at great prices!
As many of you already know, Jason and I like creating art. One of the main reasons we started Atomic Moo was a chance to create our own work, and learn from other creatives. So, that’s why we have the Moocast (with all its great interviews), and the beginnings of a comic book. It has been our goal to live a life where we are creating the art we enjoy and being successful creators at the same time. I’m not sorry when I say, day jobs suck. Working for other people, and doing something you don’t enjoy, sucks. So all of this (the podcast, blog, reviews, comic book) is us trying to learn how to live a different life away from the suck that is normal life. And I think we are one tiny step closer in that direction.
The other day I finished the basic set up for our online portfolio and store: Murray Brothers Creative! This is where we will be selling all of our very cool prints, fan art, and what ever else we can make. I actually take a bit of pride in this, not just because I know dick all about websites, and even using Square Space was kind of a task, but because we’re actually putting our selves out there and… doing something! I’m not saying we’re great artist. We’re no, (Well, I’m actually pretty proud of Jason and his style of art), but we’re trying to get out of our shells and do more than we thought we could, and hopefully we can make something a lot of people will enjoy at the same time.
So, I’ve blathered enough, but the website is online. It’s at its most basic form. Jason is in the process of creating a lot of the design elements that will really make it awesome, but for right now it works as a portfolio and store. I’ve only put on a few test pieces to start with (about six of our 8 1/2″ x 11″ prints. Each selling for $12.00), but I’ll be adding more in time and announcing hit here. Also, Murray Brothers Creative has a blog, where I’ll be posting about convention appearances, sales, and new art as well. Check out a small sample below, but hit the Murray Bros. link above to see the whole thing.
