ACEO’s on Etsy

January 12th, 2009

I just found out what ACEO’s (Art Cards, Editions, and Originals) are and have started making my own and selling them on my Etsy site. They’re business card sized (3.5 by 2 inches) pieces of art that you can buy or trade. It’s a great way to own some original art by someone you’ve always enjoyed without breaking the bank.

Here’s a sample of the series I just created. The rest are up on Etsy.

Society of Illustrators Acceptance!

January 4th, 2009

I just found out that the cover I did for the Fall of the House of Usher has been accepted into the Society of Illustrators LA show and annual catalog! Thanks so much to Susan Doyle-Shed for submitting my work via RISD and to Jon Foster and my former classmates for the critique and suggestions to make it better! The show is going to be at Gallery Nucleus in LA from March 28 to April 3, so if you’re in the area… stop by and see what I’m sure will be a great show!

Here’s the piece that was accepted:

New Drawings on Etsy

December 27th, 2008



These two drawings are now available on my etsy site! They are original drawings and measure about 6 x 10 (specifics on the site). I’m starting a personal series of animals to work on my pen & ink/ photoshop skills. These are the first two drawings I’ve done.

Summed up Summer

December 7th, 2008

Big update! Tons of stuff has happened since April. First of all, I graduated from RISD with a BFA in Illustration. After a couple of months of bumming around Massachusetts, I moved to Baltimore and started freelancing.

My first job was for Delaware Today. It was a spot illustration for a short story about how the economy will be affecting Santa this year. You can see it with the article here, but here’s the image I came up with.

Second, I opened up an Etsy shop at http://sophytuttle.etsy.com/. I’m selling greeting cards, original illustrations, and prints so far, but I’m hoping to expand to sculptures eventually too. I’m also offering custom jobs… drawings, paintings, sculptures, pretty much anything…

Third! Through a bizarre string of coincidences I am now part of a chicken-themed show at Joe Squared on North Street in Baltimore. I wish I had a picture of my piece but it was a rush job (found out about the show on Wednesday and it opened on Thursday), so I didn’t have time to scan it. It’s a good show, and a pretty cool bar besides, so if you hate the show at least you can get drink as a consolation.

The last update I have is that I will be doing portfolio reviews at MICA tomorrow on behalf of RISD. We’ll see how that goes…
