I’m a geek.
I’ve talked about this before, so unless this is your first time to my blog (in which case, WELCOME!) you already know this about me. I embrace the crazy as much as I can, and sometimes, I just can’t resist and must give in.
As I write this, the back of my brain is planning my outfit for tomorrow morning… much like high school, I’m starting a new job tomorrow (Yay!) and can’t decide what to wear.
WTH does my outfit tomorrow have to do with a giveaway? Let me tell you!
My new job involves me working at home a few days a week, so I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how I can set up our spare room as a good office space that will keep me productive and focused.
First things first, of course, I need a theme and some art!
Enter James Hance. There’s a decent chance you’ve seen some of his work before, working its way down your News feed on Facebook. I’d seen what I’d call his most “iconic” piece a number of times, but never knew the artist. It’s this one:
A little bit Star Wars, a little bit Winnie the Pooh adds up to a whole lot of awesome in my book! This painting is part of a whole collection James has done, along with a story book, called “Wookiee the Chew, the House at Chew Corner” and truly, I’m in love with these pieces!
So anyway, back to my home office. Jamie and I both work from home at least some of the time, so I can’t go all girly in my design. I thought some of this stuff would be perfect! It speaks to the geek in both of us, and I was thrilled to discover more than just Star Wars once I got further into James’ site… Back to the Future, the Muppets, Up, Winnie the Pooh, Calvin and Hobbes… Doctor Who.
The Doctor and I go way back, at least 7 years, which, in Time Lord Time is either like a million years or 2 seconds. Or both.
Jamie and I are both huge gigantic Doctor Who fans, and I loved this piece that combined two of our favorites, Back to the Future and Doctor Who! I got my prints in the mail yesterday, and went out today to get frames, because I just couldn’t wait!
And as if this and all of the other Whovian art wasn’t enough to make your (my!) head spin, James has teamed up with the infamous Leila Miyamoto (aka @DontSpkWhinese) for a new project, “Goodnight Pond,” a parody book for the next hopeful companion, and they tell me it’s coming out any minute now!
I know, you just want to know how you can win your own little bit of James Hance geekery, right? It’s SO easy! Just go take a peek at James’ site and tell me which of the art prints is your favorite! If you’re my lucky winner, you’ll get not one, not two, but FIVE prints of your choice! I actually have one framed in my living room right now that I’m giving as a wedding present this summer (Shhhh! Don’t tell the bride and groom!) so these are lovely gifts to give as well!
I’ve included some additional ways to earn entries, so you can enter as many times as possible!
a Rafflecopter giveaway
Disclosure: I received 4 art prints and a copy of “Wookiee the Chew” in exchange for writing this post and hosting this giveaway. No other compensation was received, and honestly, I’d have done it without the free art! (Just don’t tell James!)
