Jumbo sized regrets. This silly dog is featured on the month of March page of my 2019 calendar.

You can get your own calendar from my shop. I can ship anywhere! Seriously. The calendar is 8x11 inches, each month is printed on a separate sheet, all held together with a binding clip. Kind of like having 12 different prints (for just $25).

“Reach as high as you can…” I put this one on the month of May page of my 2019 calendar, but it’s definitely applicable to any time, any month of the year.

NEW 2019 CALENDARS ARE HERE! 3 of them!
WALL CALENDAR: Like the last 2 years, I’ve put together an 8x11 inch wall calendar. Each month is printed on an individual sheet of cardstock, and the whole calendar is held together with a silver binding clip. Put the current month in the front, remove individual pages and use them as prints, or display them however you want. OMG so much freedom.
BIG POSTER CALENDAR: For the first time I’ve created poster calendars! These are 16x20 inches, printed on archival, acid-free, durable matte paper. There are two to choose from, each featuring one of my all-time most popular images.

I hope 2019 is a good one! All calendars are available in my online shop right now:

I have LOVED putting together online classes lately, and I'm wondering what I should cover next! Is there something you'd like me to talk about, to learn about from me, that you'd sign up for? It could be ANYTHING. Let me know in the comments, or DM me your suggestions!
.
I have learned a TON of stuff from making and sharing my work online for the past 12 years, and working as a full-time artist for the last 7 years. So I have lots to talk about :)

You know it's true. 
I made this one into t-shirts, tote bags, kids' tees, phone cases, and more, because why not? Also, my oldest son has been helping me with preparing files for print-on-demand, and he came up with the blue-green gradient version, which I totally dig.

Custom Crow Drawings! I was getting requests to customize the text on my scribble crow drawings, so I thought I'd make that option available. When you order one from my shop, you'll be prompted to provide the text you want included. You write it, I'll draw it!
.
Could be a great gift (birthday, Christmas, "you're an awesome friend", ...). I'll be offering this for just a few weeks, so don't wait around.

I'm super honoured that you're thinking of getting my art tattooed!
I would like to ask you to consider purchasing a "tattoo ticket" from me. It's a way for you to support me, the artist behind the work. I support my family by making art for people to enjoy. When you get your tattoo done, you will pay the tattoo shop. It seems right that the artist behind the work should be paid a well.

Also, some tattoo artists will insist that you get permission from the original creator of the art, so this is a simple way to provide that.

Whether you purchase a tattoo ticket or not, I would love to see your tattoo when it's done. Send me a photo!

Here's a link with info on the tattoo ticket: 



I need to escape to the woods too...
Reminder: all of my prints in my shop are 20% OFF for just one week!
Use coupon code SUMMER to get the deal. Offer ends on July 4th, so get to it.

Hello,

Thank you so much for responding, and for taking my message seriously. And thank you for crediting my artwork on your post. It would have been better if it had been credited when it was first posted, when most of your followers saw it. But now is better than never, so thank you. 

I really appreciate that you plan on retroactively crediting all the artists whose work you've shared, and will ensure that it happens on all new posts going forward. It's the right thing to do, and it sets an example to others in your community.

Also, thanks for offering me the mediation program! Id love to take you up on it. I already have an online account. It's under this email: marcjohns@gmail.com 

All the best,

Marc

I realize that people share each other's work all the time on Instagram. And I appreciate that you tagged me, credited me, and told your audience to go check out my work. Thank you.
But my name was removed from my drawing (either by you or by whoever you got it from), you altered my artwork by putting it on a foliage background, and you added your logo to the image. All three of these are inappropriate and disrespectful, for ALL artists, even if you do tag them. Adding your logo makes it look like YOU own the image, that it is YOUR creation. If someone shares what you posted, now your logo is attached to my work.
You can repost other artists' creations, but can't alter the image, add a filter, crop out a signature, or any other alteration. It's disrespectful to the artist. Leave the work as is & credit the artist, or use your own creations. Otherwise you'll run into more trouble from other artists.
Please delete the post with my artwork on it.
Best of luck,
Marc

Working toward a yes.
I feel like these speech bubbles hold some of the words that slowly guide me to a 'yes', to making a decision on something. I am horrible at making decisions, and the fellows in this painting represent a rare moment when the voices in my head have reached consensus.
