Hey everyone, It’s that time of year again! The Holiday season has officially arrived. So I hope you’ve got yourself a peppermint mocha, and a cozy sweater because it’s time to start thinking about that shopping list and checking it twice. Yeah… I never said I was good at sales. So please, relax, sip that hot beverage, and scroll through the Justin Erickson Art Holiday gift guide 2021
Holiday Cards, and Greeting Cards
As always each variety pack comes with 5 cards, featuring one of each illustration in the series and 5 envelopes. Additionally I have made the decision to start selling my cards individually!
The variety packs sell for $20.00 dollars
Individually each card sells for $6.00 dollars.
With some changes to my production costs I’ve also been able to offer free shipping on orders of greeting cards within Canada!
A String of Lights
These happy little birds are getting into the holiday spirit by decorating their homes for the season.
They make great religion neutral holiday cards.
A Message of Hope
Not only are these little birds cute but they have an important job.
They are delivering your messages safe and sound.
A Love Letter
Each card uses the language of flowers to express different ways to tell someone you love and appreciate them.
A Message in a Bottle
I will let you know I only have a handful of these cards left and I don’t plan on reprinting them.
Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
Instead I plan on redesigning the series in the near future. The theme holds a soft spot in my heart.
The Botanical Project
These floral greetings cards use the language of flowers to express a variety of emotions.
Ranging from pride, strength, genuine intention, adoration, and remembrance.
Additionally 5% of every sale is donated to “Wildlife Preservation Canada’s” bumblebee conservation efforts.
Lapel Art Pins
Common Blue Butterfly Pin
This little blue butterfly pin through its symbolism is intended to help you remember something important to you.
You might be interested to know this lapel pin was made right here in Canada! By a little manufacturer outside Edmonton called Mr.PinMan.
Fine Art Prints
Limited Edition Prints
This quality of print is as close to the original as you can get, without buying the original.
Printed on archival quality paper, with archival inks.
Each print is signed and numbered.
For $100.00 this print makes a high quality, cruelty free gift for an entomology buff, or avid gardener.
This price includes shipping for Canadian residents.
To create exclusivity there is a very limited run of 10 and as of writing this nine of them remain.
This is also the first limited edition print I have ever made and I couldn’t be happier with the quality!
Open Edition Prints
My open edition prints don’t get the same level of colour matching or the same archival quality papers as an LE
Instead they are printed on card stock, with archival inks and I don’t sign or number them.
In fact I print them to order. It helps me keep the price point down helping me make my artwork accessible to any budget, without compromising on quality.
Making these prints a really good way to stay on budget.
Creativity and Sterility
Originally created to be the Queen of spades, for a playing card project. I always felt this piece would go to someone with a really cool games room.
I will retiring this piece to my portfolio once the prints sell out. Once they’re gone, they will stay gone.
At the time of writing this, there are only five 16×20 prints for $50.00 left.
Memory is a piece that pays tribute to one of my favourite scenes from one of the best indie gaming experiences I have ever had.
If you know someone who loves Undertale, this is the gift for them.
Available in three sizes
A Message at Sea
Inspired by the uncertainty and the adventure of moving from the prairie to the lower mainland. This piece represents the start of a new journey. What you left behind, and what lays ahead.
Prints are available in one size.
Through its symbolism to me this piece represents a childhood dream, and how that dream has both changed and remained the same over the years.
Featuring my favourite species of moth the catocala relicta or White Underwing Moth.
This print is available in two sizes.
Through symbolism, this piece represents an affirmation of love.
Featuring the Monarch Butterfly.
Prints are available in one size.
Again using its symbolism this piece represents an affirmation of freedom.
Featuring a Blue Morpho butterfly. Prints available in one size.
Prints on Sale
Do you have a gamer on your shopping list? Well I just might have the unique gift you’ve been searching for.

The print is available in three different sizes.

Original Artwork for $550.00 or Less
This section is dedicated to the majority of my work. I’ll be honest. If you were to purchase one of these, I will do a little happy dance, and jump around my office.
Original Artwork Over $550.00
This last section is dedicated to my more complex and time consuming originals. A purchase of one of these paintings would make an incredibly generous gift, and likely make my cry ugly tears and pledge to name my first born after you.
Thank you for Reading the “Justin Erickson Art Holiday Gift Guide 2021”
If you made it down this far I can’t thank you enough. It is a little surprisingly to see how much artwork I have. It’s incredible to see how much time I have dedicated towards my work this year. Anyway, I don’t want to reflect too much, that gets pretty boring!
What I do want to do is wish you a happy holiday season, free of stress, and full of warmth.
