ACEO - Grumpy Fish by ursulav ACEO - Grumpy Fish by ursulav
I like ACEOs as a format, but I cannot possibly draw that small. My fingers are not fat, but they are fumbly, and working in such a teeny tiny space makes my eyes twirl in opposite directions.

But I'm not bad with an exacto knife and gel medium, and I have a GREAT printer. So I'm fooling with some ACEOs made via collage. (The fish was painted digitally, printed out, glued onto heavy illustration board and cut out, so it's got a neat 3-D effect on the final.)

Original is for sale--I have no idea what to list these for, so I'm ebaying it--and I think I'll be offering a limited edition of 8 prints at ACEO size, again, price to be determined, but probably not very much. I just like the size. It's so wee! It allows for such straightforward imagery! It would fit into such a nice little slot at cons!

This is really cool, I like how it's a random sort of thing (out of context if nothing else). I dig it.

Very cool. I checked the Ebay link, but it's gone. Are the cards all gone too?

Something about this makes me want to name a band "It Was A Grumpy Sort of Fish" and use this as a poster.

Ive never heard of an ACEO and had to google it. I find the concept amazing. I think knowing what it is and how it works completely changes my thoughts on seeing this piece now. When you said small, I dont think it occured to me THAT SMALL. What a wonderful piece, as all your works are. I agree... too bad this wasnt bigger. Would have been tempted to make it a hanging at my new apartment. Seems like one of those conversational kind of works.
