The download is on a white solid background so that you can chose your favorite paper for printing (like a vintage textured one, for example).
One of my favorite blogs to visit is Indie Fixx (the tagline "indie like a foxx" gets me every time) which has, among great indie arts and style picks, a regular feature called Feed Your Soul. They offer free art from talented illustrators that can be downloaded and printed to hang. The site's author says "art is important for your soul. It helps rejuvenate, it’s thought-provoking, offers inspiration and can generally brighten an otherwise dreary day among other things." Because the economy is so poor and artists are being hit hard by people cutting back on their budgets, Indie Fixx set out to still offer the art that our souls need, and do it for free.
"Art is important for your soul.""Scoundrels and Loose Women" is my version of offering free art to my friends and everyone else out there who could use a smile or chuckle in their day. When I first released this to my Facebook and Twitter friends, people really loved it and thought it is "extremely marketable." Several clamored for me to take it down and to sell it as a print instead, to local establishments or just online. But I wanted to create something that people would like (guys and girls both) and could have for free.
As a compromise and sort of experiment just to see, I am also offering the print in my Etsy store for 1/2 off the regular price of prints. So you can download it here to print yourself, or purchase it there printed and shipped, and the choice is entirely yours!
