About the Artwork
Here we have the second installment in the Flight of Fancy Series by visionary artist, Brian C. Zickafoose. Our friend Fancy is suspended inside a torus shaped subatomic chamber as photon beams stream past in blinding speeds. The static of uncertainty dispatches on bulbous monitor screens across the walls of the chamber as we turn the corner ever faster. “Do you see?” –  asks Fancy in a feverish whisper. Limited edition paper and canvas prints are available.

2014 :: All Things re::Born

March 15, 2014 / Blog, News / 0 Comments

Another season changes, winter unwillingly withers away and spring breathes life anew. With all things considered, times have never been better than right now. Truly a blessing, indeed.

With an explosion of new technology, we learn and live to experience new things in our lives every day at a much faster pace than we have ever considered possible as a species. Information is consumed in mind bending heaps at dizzying speeds.

Whether or not we are able to maintain relevancy in this modern age, depends on our ability to embrace change and move forward.

In that spirit, we are proud to launch the new BrianZickafoose.com brand and logo, a spanking new web site and a crazy awesome new product shop chocked with new goodies for the grabbing. I’ve literally poured myself and my resources into this project over the last few months and we are glad to finally have it go live.

Feel free to browse around and check out the new site layout, and if you can please stop in my shop and help support us as we continually strive to offer new products and collectibles in the very near future. As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to me at: [email protected]

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and check us out. Much love and light – BZ
