What better way to greet your family this holiday season than a Mike Quinn doormat? None…everything else is boring, overdone, sold at a box store plain. Mike’s doormats on the other hand are unique, special and dare I say fabulous? Yes, definitely fabulous. Of course we can’t just blindly tell you to go buy a doormat without giving a solid critique of how they look in person. Mike has his doormats printed from Zazzle…this make it affordable and frankly he can’t make snazzy fish with a warehouse of goodies. So if you want a cool mug, tee or doormat you’ll have to check out His Store. Also sales are going crazy on Zazzle right now and they are good enough to give you coupon codes right in the top of the page…Nice.
Back to the doormat…
The coloring if true to the original art
Quality of the print is spot on, you can even see pencil lines.
And of course by big things we mean big fish! You can see the close up details as Mike sculpts the piece, adding texture and design to every inch. Spots, dots, hand carved texture and even some fun shapes are featured with this fish. The teeth are extra big as per protocol with Mike’s work. Big Red here is still a work in progress as he still needs the acetate inlays.
This piece named Little Dave went from concept to sea turtle super star! Some of Mike’s art starts with a sketch, Some are just free hand in clay and he makes whatever the mood calls for. The drawing is perfectly rendered in ceramic 3-D form, with a few added quirks and a shiny green paint job. Little Dave came to life, and brought joy and happiness to all that saw him (we hope).
Not only can you find little Dave in the shop on occasion, but his adorable face is on some pretty snazzy products, like pens, mugs, mouse pads, night lights, tees and even super snazzy high tops. Seriously how cool is that?!
