I am now officially available for sale at the MoMA Store!
You could, nay should, act now while supplies last. The Museum of Modern Art selects work from artists every year and sells these greeting cards in order to help fund their programs. I am honored that my submission was accepted and manufactured for this year’s line.
If you follow this link, you can buy a tractor-trailer load of them from the online store. I suppose you could always buy a smaller quantity as well – but why would you want to? I believe these are available in several retail stores as well and if you happen to be in NYC, you can also pick some up at the museum’s gift shop.
You can see the oven card in action here:
The design went through many versions and I couldn’t have done it without the support and help from my friends and family. My wife, in particular, knew for sure that this was something the museum would choose as soon as I made the first white mock-up.
The card mails flat and becomes a dimensional oven when you pull the door open. The gingerbread man cookie stands up on his cookie sheet wishing you well (presumably with the knowledge that he is much too fast for you to ever catch and eat.) The card stands on its own thereafter and becomes a fun little interactive paper decoration as well. I hope that you will pick up some of these fun paper goodies and that you enjoy the upcoming holidays!
Wow! These cards completely sold out last year!
Good news! Because the oven Christmas cards were such a hit, they reprinted them again for this year. You can order from MoMA at this link: http://store.moma.org/office/holiday-cards/gingerbread-wishes/115254-115254.html#q=Holiday+Cards&view=grid&sz=all&start=74
