CS Designs Latest News

Updating my Entire Digital Stamp Catalog:
I am in the process of revamping my entire digital stamp catalog .Once all the alterations have been finished it should be easier for you to find what you are looking for. There will also be lots of new designs for you to choose from and I thank you for your patience. :) Chris

Coming Soon!!!

Digitally Enhanced and Restored Designs and Collage Sheets.
Besides being an artist with the ability to draw my own original designs which I use in my art projects, I am also an avid collector of old books, posters, postcards, matchbook covers, trade cards various ephemera and other rare, unusual, and beautiful things.  I have been collecting since my early teens and early 20’s. so have amassed quite a large collection. Recently while going through one of my old trunks, I again realized the beauty of many of the things that have remained unseen in my basement for so many years and thought it was time take them out, give them new life, use them in my art as well as let them be enjoyed by others.

Another passion of mine is photo restoration and I will soon be offering restored and digitally enhanced versions of some of the vintage images from my various collections.
