Check out our great new t-shirt designs. These are little more exciting than the classic black shirts we have.....choose your poison.

This shirt was designed by Cole Sutton, an MCAD student.

The Blackbird t-shirt was designed by Ben Rummel a current MCAD student. It is a white t-shirt with black ink design.

Dear Sequential Artists,
Your Friendly Neighborhood Art Slinger just got in 24-packs of Strathmore smooth 100 Lb bristol, 11 x 17" with the non-reproducible blue guide lines. Yes, it is on the thin side, but all the better for tracing.

Retail price: $15.95; Yours for $9.60!
(That's 40¢ a sheet!)
Located now by the Copics and Microns.

Strathmore 500 Bristol, 100% cotton, 2-ply semi-smooth surface, 11x17" (24-pack)
This is the standard stuff for Marvel comics.

MSRP: $40. Yours for $24.
Located by the Copics.

We also just got in sheets of Strathmore 500 illustration board (78pt, vellum surface) for all wet media. It feels really nice, and it is thicker than mat board.
15 x 22" size: Retail $8.95; Yours for $5.40
22 x 30" size: Retail $14.95; Yours for $9.00
Located by the single-sheet watercolor paper, on the bottom shelf.

Keep rockin' hard,
The Art Cellar

Happy Spring!

To increase the fervor of Spring Fever, look at some gardening books!

This is only a small selection of our springtime books, come in and check em all out!  

Almost all of our books are 10% off msrp and textbooks are 20% off msrp (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price)

For those with only a small space, this is the perfect book.

These two books are all you need to run for the farm and live off the land (with a nice studio of course).  

FYI for a good source of quality organic heirloom seeds go to Seed Savers in Decorah IA
