I wish you still made stationary. I am particularly fond of ‘friendly dragons’. If you ever start again, I would be happy to purchase note cards and stationary with envelopes.
I can send you good files from which you can print your own. Eventually they will be available for download here- but not yet. I am on Facebook under my name- ask to friend me or send me a message with your email and remind me why you are contacting me and we can complete this over email.
These are really cool. Can we print them? What attribution should we be using?
Yes, Anastasia, feel free to download and print any of my art. I’d appreciate getting credit, but for me the art and what it depicts is what is most important.
Anyone can print them. If for more than personal use I’d appreciate getting credit, but I’d much rather see people use them than have them just sitting around on my website.
I am a retired Coast Guard Officer. As Pacific Area Commander we lived on Yerba Buena Island in the old light house keepers house in the late 1990s. I have a lovely 8 1/2 by 11 1/2 pen and ink sketch of the light house, the keepers house and a flagpole with the US Flag and the CG ensign as viewed from the water signed by DIZENGA. Is this your art and can you supply some history?
Yes, Jim, that is me. Many years ago I supported my academic work at UC Berkeley with my art, mostly as stationery and envelopes. At one point I met a man who I also think lived on the island. He was in the military but I don’t remember which branch. I imagine the Coast Guard. He asked me to do the drawing you mention.
That was before the time of scanning, and so I do not have a copy of it myself. If you ever scan it and want to send it to me, I’d appreciate it.
If my memory serves me right, I got off the Bay Bridge in order to take some photographs because there were signs all around saying basically “do not linger.” So I did not draw it “on site.” But what a beautiful place it was!
I always made my signature small because it was the picture that mattered- but it says in one way or another, “diZerega.”
