On a rainy weekend here at the studio I started digging through some old boxes of prints that hadn’t made it into the editions for one reason or another. I pulled out some unique gems and white proofs and began to embellish them with pencils, markers and paints, eventually pulling together a nice little collection of one-of-a-kind APs. I would now like to get those prints into your hands, but there may be a lot of you, so today’s sale will be conducted as a lottery.

The pop-up gallery (click on image above) will have basic details for each print. All prints are embellished by the me…some are just colored accents, while others have small additions. Many of the prints are on a natural white stock that Monolith Press uses when they dial in the ink colors and registration. Very few of these white proofs exist and most of them seem to have slight dings or imperfections (potential customers please note). But with a little love they turned into something special.

We broke the stack of embellished APs into two price categories to keep things simple.
Small  Prints (Plootuffels, Mr.Bloomjangles, Inspired) = $90 + shipping.
Larger Prints (Elder, In This Together, Bliss Bug, Slow, Sproutlings) = $140 + shipping.

Also please note, there are five different Plootuffels and Tapooflet in a White Edition (of 12) available, but only one pictured. You may choose the one pictured, or you can go for “Blind” and randomly get one of the other four not pictured.

There are also two different Mr.Bloomjangles available, so label the second one accordingly if you are choosing that one.

Here’s how we would like potential customers to enter the purchasing lottery:

• Interested customers may enter the purchasing lottery only once by posting a comment with their choice of which ONE of the prints they’re most interested in purchasing.
• You can post anonymously, but be sure to use your Paypal email address. (Also, mention if you’re International shipping)
• Customers will be selected randomly, and invoices will be sent through Paypal.
• Invoices will start going out Wednesday afternoon.
• If you’re comment doesn’t show up, it got caught up in our extra-tight spam filter. We will dig you out before we start picking “winning” customers.
• Things that will increase your odds of not being selected as a customer would be: Commenting more than once, picking more than one choice, or no choices at all. Using aliases is also highly annoying and we’ve banned a handful for trying it.

    With that said, I think I’d most like to have that Inspired by Life – I just think it would be fantastic in my son’s room who turns 13 weeks old today!

    Thanks so much for the chance!

    Bliss Bug is my all time favorite piece of yours and would love to frame it up for my daughter. She loves your work so much!. Thanks for the chance and good luck to everyone!

  11. Travis Bridges

    Master Spusta!

    I would love the “Slow” print that is described as being 11″ x 14″ screen print from 2009. This artist proof is missing the red ink layer of the regular edition. Embellished accents with pencils and markers.
    Image 1 of 9 as this print has a deeper meaning to me as a father of two. Love your work! This would be my biggest and forth piece of yours! But honestly, I’d be happy buying blindly from you any day of the week. You rock good sir!



  12. Michele McCarthy Smith

  13. Kimberly Squires

  14. Eric Murray

    Hey Mr. Spusta what have you done?
    Hey Mr. Spusta why’s there only one?
    Hey Mr. Spusta who are you exposing man?
    Hey Mr. Spusta Elders’s the one I want!
    Hey Mr. Spusta shot gun!

    It’s a nice day to embellish a print,
    It’s a nice day for a White Wednesday!
    It’s a nice day to doodle again!

    If it wasn’t clear, I would be head over heels to win the Elder 😉

  15. Kevin Triplett

    there’ve been times when I wonder
    and times when I don’t
    concepts I’ll ponder
    and concepts I won’t ever see

    god isn’t one of these
    former or latter
    which did you think I meant?
    it doesn’t matter to me

    bug – don’t need it
    bug – don’t feed it
    my thoughts faded
    it doesn’t matter/overrated

    cold in my hand
    in a country pool
    standing and waving
    the rain, wind on the runway

    spending or saving
    credit or debt
    which did you think I meant?
    nothing I see can be taken from me

    bug – don’t need it
    bug – don’t feed it
    my thoughts faded
    it doesn’t matter/overrated

  20. Melissa

    The only gambling I like…. let’s roll those dice again! Would love to have that Slow! Thanks for bringing the love today!!!

  21. AA

  25. Chatham

    I would LOVE a slow.

    My wife works on a gopher tortoise preserve and spends a good part of her work life saving turtles from construction/development sites. Once they save the turtles from the development they relocate them to the Nokuse plantation in Walton County, Fla. It would mean the world to me to have that print.

  26. Beth

    Would like a bliss bug mini to put up in my daughter’s room. Is my first attempt at a Spusta lottery. Thanks in advance!

  32. Brad Eisenberg

    Bliss Bug and I will create a shrine to it and worship it everyday. Then I will move to a state that will allow me to marry it, then I will create little bliss bug minis and spread then throughout the world.

  33. Gerald M

    Thank you for this opportunity Mr. Spusta. I have been looking for an INSURED BY LIFE for a very long time! This would make me the happiest person ever! Thanx again!

  36. Devan

    Mr. Bloomjangles would be wonderful. Yellow flowers is beautiful, but whichever available is great. I wonder if he is playing along with a tap-root dance in New Orleans.
