Today we are featuring Randall Klopping

Today we feature the digital artwork of Randall Klopping. His store on Zazzle entitled Teknowizard is an amazing collection of his travels in the Universe. The colors and shapes provides the moods for the many journeys he takes you on from nebula to nova and through black holes. As you will learn the snippets of his bio below his influences have shaped his view of his world and allows us along for the ride.

At the end of this news post there are several sites he also has for viewing. There you can also see his work on a larger scale. So enjoy the ride and if you like what you see browse threw his store of many products and journeys.
Quote:

More of his bio can be found in his shop under "About"

I have no education in art save a couple of summer courses in photography. Growing up with mental illness caused me many problems and I've never really been comfortable in a classroom or most social settings. But I love to create! In my younger years it was primarily sketching, painting (acrylic, oil & airbrush). In an accident in 1992 I was crushed by a pickup and car, which left me able to spend less and less time standing or sitting. I thought art was lost to me until computers broke the pentium2 barrier and started exploring digital art.

As far as I can remember, I have always sought to represent things in a visual manner. A trait I suspect comes from the Asperger's syndrome, a form of Autism without the speech impediment. I began expressing myself through art because my brain struggles constantly with words, especially when writing, the patterns escape me. But visual patterns! Now there is something my brain understands and drives me to explore. They say every storm cloud has a silver lining, this is the gift that comes with the curse of my insanity. Art is the one thing that truly puts the turmoil my thoughts are and allows me to be at peace.

Viggo-Works Marketplace

Our own marketplace has been open for a little over three years now. We have been so fortunate to have such a great membership who also has artistic talent. Over the years we've had contributions from our members spanning the globe. Images from New Zealand, Poland, US and England. Paintings from the Netherlands, France, Germany, UK and the US. Our graphic artists are just as diverse a group.

We have be successful in our original goal to be able to defray the cost of our server fees for Viggo-Works and Middle-earth Journeys with the funds we've made through sales of products in our Marketplace. This makes it possible for those expenses to be paid by an outside source and not out of Riv Res's pocket as it had been done prior to opening the V-W Marketplace.

We'd like to that the contributors and the buyers for without the above would not be happening.

This is an announcement that we also have some new designs on products to share with you today. Below you will find our new merchandise with hopes more will follow.

You can view the products by clicking on the links below or follow us to the V-W Marketplace and go to the New Products link on the right hand side of the shops home page.

But before you browse we have some exciting news. Please read the free shipping to ANYWHERE ON THE PLANET promotion taking place on Zazzle. Details below...

Now is the time to buy the products listed in our Close outs - Products on borrowed time which will be gone after Tuesday, June 30th.

Today we are featuring Zazzlers Against Hate

Zazzler's Against Hate or ZAH was started by individuals who saw Zazzle's political face change over the last nine years. During the Bush administration many anti-government/pro-Bush Zazzle stores popped up with messages from the sublime to the down right mean spirited.

With their message of peace and more so tolerance, ZAH's graphic art designs are from a collective of folks who are fed up with the intolerance of our world. 50% of their proceeds goes to Kiva.org.

Below you will see a wide variety of products with their designs. Because there are so many designs to view we will post just a sample and encourage you to visit their store.

We hope you visit ZAH's Zazzle store at Zazzler's Against Hate.
Quote:
Personal Interests: WE ARE a group of Zazzlers from around the globe who: are from different walks of life; have different viewpoints on everything from art to politics; and have varied business, educational, religious and ethnic backgrounds.

WE SHARE certain beliefs, values and ethics:

IMAGES CAN HURT. Art and art products should be free from hate, intolerance and bigotry.

WORDS CAN HURT. We oppose the use of language for the purpose of debasing, demeaning or diminishing persons and their beliefs.

We hope you enjoy our gallery and that you will join us in the quest to promote art and derivative products that promote harmony and are entirely free from hate.

Thank you from ZAH for your support and friendship!

If you like what you see...

Take a look around the Zazzler's Against Hate store. There are more designs to choose from and many products are customizable.
