certainly! For one, you can e mail me with your info for sending, etc. at kaicarpenter.art@gmail.com - for another, it's about to be published this year in a kids' book called Chocolate Chips and Rocket Ships - here's the Kickstarter page:

well i'll need to have a basic idea of where it's goin to estimate shipping - ie., if you're in the UK or China or something, it would be more. But I'll do a full sizer for 65$ (that's including material and shipping costs as well as the print itself).

Everyone tells me gouache is a very hard medium to master, it's opaque but not at the same time...confusing.

:iconkaicarpenter:
KaiCarpenter Featured By Owner May 31, 2012
Yeah, but you can do it! Just think: opaque when you want, transparent when you want. What could be better?! ;)

True dat. Know anywhere I can get a good basic tutorial? How did you learn?

KaiCarpenter Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012
gouache tutorials are tough to find...I've never seen any! Maybe Syd Mead has some out? Not sure, but I know he paints a lot in gouache and has probably put out some tutorials.

But the best way to learn is to just start emulating artists you love - and it doesn't matter if they don't use gouache! - just look closely at the work you love and try and do something like it.
