"Atelier" [at-l-yey, at-l-yey; French atuh-lyey] is "a french word for workshop or studio, especially that of an artist, artisan, or designer."

I thought it might make a nice little title heading for a new, recurring segment in the newsletter, focusing on things happening in my art studio.

So, what's new at RedSneaker™ Studios these days, you ask? Well, I recently purchased a very heavy, top-of-the-line, cast iron embosser…

…which I plan to use to stamp each signed, limited-edition fine art print (like the one pictured below), prior to shipping.

I'm in the process of working with my supplier to adjust the one I have so it works well with heavier paper, and also plan to acquire a second unit to use with lighter-weight paper.

As with everything we produce here at RedSneaker™ – our goal is to create and offer only the very highest quality products possible.

For example, unless stated otherwise, the prints we'll soon offer will be true Giclée, limited-edition, hand-signed fine art prints on archival, acid-free, mould-made paper with 100% rag content. Each print will be shipped flat and unframed, and will include an extra thick, 8-ply gallery board mat, white foam-core backing board and plastic protective sleeve.

Be sure to stay tuned to future editions of The Happiness of Art™ for information about soon-to-be-released print offerings, and more weekly updates from… L'Atelier!

Bits, Bytes & Nybbles,
culled from the depths of the Internet…
Archaeologists discovered an ancient mosaic with a message: 'Be cheerful, enjoy your life.' • Do you come from royal blood? Your last name may tell you. • This couple bought an abandoned french chateau and started a blog to chronicle its restoration. • The complete history of Major League Baseball: Every game from every MLB team since 1871. • This heartbreaking animation lets you watch Titanic sink in real-time. • Google unveils a virtual reality paintbrush. • Joe's Kansas City BBQ now ships to the continental United States (sorry, Hawaii and Alaska). • How to start running. • Did you know: 1 minute of all-out exercise may have benefits of 45 minutes of moderate exertion. • Steve Jobs' obsession with the quality of the things unseen.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association Art Collection features the work of artists with disabilities "to emphasize that physical disability is no barrier to creativity". (I love that—so true!) Learn more here or at the link above.

Here are more examples of some of the amazing artwork featured in the collection, and a short video montage. I marvel at these extraordinary individuals who are able to overcome physical limitations to express their inner creativity.

About Me

Hi. I’m D.E.Uhlig. I’m an artist, author, husband and father.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to draw. Years ago I gave my wife a hand-drawn card for our anniversary, and she loved it so much she made me promise to ALWAYS hand-draw her cards. Then our three kids made me promise to do the same with their birthday cards. And when I posted some of my drawings online, people began asking how they could purchase my work—so I created this newsletter. I believe in something I like to call “The Happiness of Art” and I hope it makes you smile.
