Hipster + Sandwich

I painted this a couple months ago after watching a dirty hipster eating a sloppy sandwich. I felt it was just too funny not to post, so I present to you a quick painting that I simply call "Hot Mess".

Digital prints of this piece are available here. (Cheap!)

Shop smart. Shop s.rollick.

Back in February, I mentioned that I was setting up a place on the web to sell my wares. Well my idle threats have finally become reality, and you can find prints and original pieces for sale in my new store! Don't forget to bookmark, or just click on the button to the right of this entry --> whenever you're checking out what's new in the world of Stephen Rollick.

Inventory is somewhat limited at this moment, but originals and new prints will be arriving from time to time. Bear with me.

Hangzhou Sunset

About a month ago, my lady friend Nikki moved to China. Her going away present was a watercolor of the sun rising over Uptown.

This project was a two part project though, and Nikki's end of the bargain was to find a photo of the sunset in China (since she is a fledgling photographer) and send it to me so I could make my own version of it. I am pleased to say that part 2 is finished, and now I finally have something to hang on the walls of my own apartment!

Nikki has a blog of her travels and some of the breathtaking scenery in China here.

Uptown Sunrise...

As explained in the title of this post, this is a quick watercolor of a sunrise over good old Uptown (represent!). My lady friend, a lifelong Chicagoan, is moving to China next week and will be taking a little bit of the windy city to China with her, since paintings are easy to roll up and get through customs and are waaaaaaay cooler than photos to hang on the blank walls of one's apartment. This is only part 1 of a two part project though, so keep your eyes peeled for part 2!

Birds in the city

Its been quite some time since anything new has gone up here... my apologies. Despite the fact that I've been working like a mad man lately, this is the first painting I can freely distribute at this point in time. As some of you know, I've been quite busy working on a somewhat enormous project which I hope will see the light of day later this year. So in the mean time, I've completed my first large scale watercolor in over a year, since wedding season is upon us and I am too poor to afford presents. I hope you like what you see, and I hope the recipient doesn't read this before this weekend. Stay tuned!
