  • WOODSNAP ARTIST OF THE MONTH – Jonathan McIntosh

    3 lbs. That’s the weight of the human brain. Billions of people on earth each have the same 3lbs of gray matter in their skull, yet it never ceases to amaze me how artistry elevates a lucky few to the highest form of originality above us all. This is the case with New York-based artist, Jonathan McIntosh. Jonathan studied Graphic Design and Computer Art at The School of Visual Arts in New York City and is a mixed media creative artist with a professional background in print and digital graphic design.

    Woodsnap artist of the month

    C.S. Lewis once said, “No man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth… you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.”

    Jonathan McIntosh has found his truth in art.  He thrives on taking viewers through a kinetic-visual adventure spanning print, digital, auditive, and interactive artwork.  His work evokes a reaction in all who observe it. That’s the fun part about Jonathan’s art, each viewer takes away something different. The commonality of all is that you cannot be a passive observer. Jonathan beckons you off the couch and onto a visual journey where you can choose to take the red pill and have your mind blown... or you can take the blue pill (not that blue pill, the one Morpheus offers Neo in The Matrix)... and still have your mind blown.

    Jonathan put it best when he said, “I create print, digital, auditive, and interactive artwork, inspired by my love for the intermixing of different creative mediums. Art is all things and all shapes. My artwork and style express what and how I see pop-culture from sight, to screen, to print, to motion and to sound. My art questions and pushes the pop-culture envelope and how we perceive it. In essence, I'm a modern pop artist.”

    You cannot put Jonathan McIntosh’s art into a box, for in doing so you simply put it into a coffin. It needs to be free to express itself, anything less kills it. We at WoodSnap.com are always ecstatic to see Jonathan’s art printed on our wood canvases. They look AMAZING! Jonathan is now producing and participating in an upcoming group show called CMYK ART + DANCE PARTY. It launches Friday April 4th, 2014 and runs through the month of April at Littlefield in Brooklyn, New York. You have got to check out the art, and the man behind the art. You won’t regret it!

    PHOTO ON WOOD SERIES: PASS THE BUCK

    If “Passing the Buck” were an Olympic Sport I’d be Bruce Jenner... not just because I’d have a gold medal but because I’d have rockin’ hair and Kevlar-like skin. I loved passing the buck growing up. I framed my poor kid brother for everything from missing cookies to harboring Saddam Hussein.  If our room wasn’t clean, my kid brother did it. If my homework didn’t get done, my kid brother hid my book bag. Quick and simple. But there’s one place where the buck stops… WoodSnap. We are the premier wood gift company! Send in your favorite photos and we’ll print them on wood! You’ll love them… If not, it’s my kid brother’s fault. A WoodSnap is a unique wooden canvas that presents your most memorable photos engrained in wood.

    WEDDING ANNIVERSARY GIFT SERIES: BREAKFAST-DINNER
    There is nothing more fun than having  breakfast for dinner. Eating pancakes or bacon and eggs for dinner shatters the meal selection paradigm into a million delicious pieces. It’s like wearing PJs to work or brushing your teeth with chocolate.  I’m not saying you need to do it every day but breaking our habits “just because” is what separates us from the animals (that and our affinity for decorative bathroom towels). So break the mold with printing photos on boring canvases! Print your photos on wood! They are the perfect wood gift for you five year anniversary! And next time your loved one asks you what you want for dinner tell them flapjacks and a side of Lucky Charms! *And yes, I do brush my teeth with chocolate at least once a week.

  • PHOTOS ON WOOD MARATHON

    Print your Marathon Photos on Wood!

    PHOTOS ON WOOD SERIES: MARATHON
    Running a marathon is one of the greatest accomplishments you can achieve. The training and preparation needed speak volumes to your physical and mental strength. I’ve always wanted to run one and have my picture snapped at the finish line proving to the world I did it. I would LOVE to print that photo on wood! My kid brother has bragged for years that he ran a half-marathon. Though this is still a good accomplishment, that’s kind of like Jeff Gordon saying he finished 1st in the Indy 250*, or I wrote half of an amazing novel, or I half-stopped smoking cigars in the garage when my wife goes to the gym between 5:30-6:30 leaving me 20 minutes to wash my clothes of the smell before she gets home (purely hypothetical). It's either all in or nothing, there is no half way. So whatever your accomplishment is, send us your photos and let us print them on wood! It’s the perfect wood gift to commemorate your success! Who knows, maybe I’ll return half the lawn mower to my brother and take a picture of his half frown and print that on a full wood canvas! WoodSnap, “The Original Print on Wood Company.”

    PHOTO ON WOOD GIFT SERIES: HUMMINGBIRDS

    I would never call myself a bird enthusiast but I do love drinking my morning coffee and watching hummingbirds fly around my backyard. There’s something calming about watching them zip around, their little wings flapping at lightning speed. I find myself fantasizing about snatching a Hummingbird out of the air and shoving it into my mouth, a few feathers hanging from my lip the only evidence it ever existed (Sylvester the Cat Style). What? You don’t have any cartoon fantasies? Yeah, I’m the only one that wants to paint a train tunnel on a brick wall and see if a train will go through it. Who are you kidding? You’re right there with me. So as your wedding anniversary approaches and your heart begins fluttering with anticipation like the wings of a hummingbird, get your spouse a wood gift! A photo printed on wood is the perfect five year anniversary gift! And the next time you drop an anvil on your foot, don't worry! Just take a bicycle pump and blow it back up to normal.

    PHOTO ON WOOD SERIES: BUSINESS CARDS

    I’m going to ruffle a few feathers here but I do not like business cards. Over the years I’ve received a million of them but not once have I ever used one. Personally, I feel odd giving them out. It’s like I’m saying, “Hey, I’m forgettable. Put this reminder of who I am in your pocket and use it to throw away your gum later when I’m not looking so I still think you like me.” If you really want them to remember you, print a photo on wood of yourself at WoodSnap.com and give that away at the trade show! I guarantee that wood gift of a business card will stand out from the rest! Or go the traditional route and print a photo of your family on wood and hang it in your living room! Family photos on wood look amazing! Take it from the wood gift experts! WoodSnap, “The Original Print on Wood Company.” *The disparaging views regarding business cards are the sole opinion of the author and not reflective of WoodSnap. Author also holds the same views about Carrot Top that he does Business Cards :).

    PHOTO ON WOOD GIFT SERIES: MY COUCH IS MY DOG’S FAVORITE TREAT
    So my wife and I bought new furniture for our wedding anniversary. I finally got one of those huge couches you can lounge in and fall asleep while watching a movie. I absolutely love it. Yet despite buying our dog all of the toys he wants, he still decided to gnaw the corners off our new couch while we were at work. No matter what we tried, each day he’d chew off another chunk of couch. We tried sprays, powders, lemons, armed guards, throw blankets yet that little pup was determined to turn our living room into the set of Sanford and Son. We’ve since replaced our couch with a stone bench we stole from the city park. Ha! We win… sort of. So don’t make our same mistake! Instead of edible furniture, get your loved one a wood gift from WoodSnap for your five year anniversary! A WoodSnap is a unique wooden canvas that presents your most memorable photos engrained in wood. Wood prints are the newest wave of art that involves the intricate science of printing photos on wood with complete precision, vibrancy and durability.
