Prints for Sale - Minimalist Muppets

Well, here we are.

Just one week from my original Minimalist Muppets post, and thanks to hundreds of people spreading the word and reblogging the crap out of this thing, my blog has received almost 6,000 page views in 2 days, and the term "Minimalist Muppets" has gone insane on both Twitter and Google.

I can't say enough how much I appreciate all the kind words, and yes, I know that Gonzo's nose looks phallic. That was pretty much happening already without my help.

Over the last couple days, I have had more than a handful of E-mails and messages asking if prints would be made available. Well, without further ado... drumroll please... they are. (I've never been good at building dramatic tension.)

I've chose to make the prints available through ImageKind.com, because they allow for a wide variety of dimensions, paper types, and even canvas and framing options.

Click on the handy box below (or click here) to check it out!

If there is enough interest in these suckers, I will take a look at getting some t-shirts made available as well. If you would like specific prints of individual Muppets, just leave a comment below and let me know so that we can work something out.

Thanks, and spread the word to all your Muppet-loving friends!

Update: 12-05-10

Due to multiple requests, I have now made available through ImageKind.com individual prints of each Muppet, as well as prints of a few of the more popular duos (Bunsen & Beaker, Waldorf & Statler, Kermit & Miss Piggy, etc.)

All of the currently available prints can be found be following the this link.

  3. Glenn2929...you are actually wrong. Since the piece doesn't include an actual character designs or copy-written names, the artist should be ok.

  4. I would love to see what it could cost to get a couple specific ones printed up for the office. You can reach me at HarrisR83 at g - mail. Thanks Eric!

  5. Dan I think your understanding of intellectual property laws needs a little bit of work.

    While it is a good step that the author took the word "muppet" off the print, the fact is that it's obvious to anyone buying it what they're looking at. Not to mention that the title of all the posts makes it even clearer.

    The Jim Henson company would have absolutely no trouble proving in a court that this is a breach of their IP whereby someone is profiting by using both the muppet name and their recognizable likeness.

    The only way this would be considered legal use is if it fell under parody laws. Which it doesn't.

    Hopefully The Jim Henson company won't hear about or care about this print. But if they do, the artist would be legally liable should they decide to take action.

  7. We've put this print up in our toddler's nursery. She loves it and we love that she's learning her muppets. Any chance you'll do a Sesame St minimalist muppet print, as well? We'd love to add a minimalist Bert, Ernie, the Count, Oscar, Snuffy, Big Bird, Cookie, Grover, Guy Smiley, and Cow to our nursey decor! (A minimalist Elmo wouldn't be as hard to take as the real one, but we wouldn't mind if you left out Abby and Zoey, and any other pre-1990 characters. Wouldn't mind at all . . .) It's hard to find interesting nursery art, so this could make a for a popular series. Thanks for considering it!
