Etsy in The Selling

I've been loving Etsy for years. I think it's a fantastic place to find both awesome and truly horrifically wonderful things (thank you Regretsy).  It also gives artists, crafters and junk collectors the ability to sell their work without having to deal with traditional selling venues.

When we were working on our film The Selling I wanted to include some of the etsy things I had bought in the world of the movie. I put some things in front of the costume designer Christine Bean, and the art director Katrin Eder and these were some things that they used.

The lead character Richard Scarry played by Gabriel Diani wears this fantastic Grumpy Owl's shirt.
It is made by the etsy shop Deadworry. I love her stuff!

Then in my character Ginger's apartment we can see this guy from Berkleyillustration.

I love Ryan's work and it is all over my apartment and the houses of at least three other cast members that I know of.

This next really cool shop mostly ended up on the cutting room floor but if you know it's there you can see photos from Swirlingthoughts on the wall of Richard Scarry's mother's house (played by the fantastic
Nancy Lenehan).
These toy photos are super good. The barbie series is particularly awesome.

I also used some of my own jewelry from Underoakstudios.

I will be using more etsy stuff in other things that I produce. If you're going to do this make sure you get a release from the artist.

Thanks guys!
