the artist adds that these may well be collected in a commercially retrospective book/volume in the future.

“RoomHead”

“RoomHead” is a stream of consciousness sketch no doubt rooted in an attempt to play with perspective and my love of cluttered architectural styles,

“…an image from a bizarre storybook, an architecture-headed giant wanders through the narrow streets of a dreamscape city, confused by the celebratory kites flying from the various windows and spires.”

It has been a popular image at various conventions and fairs and is now offered in both its classic version (above) and a Revisited Special Edition, for size and pricing options (see below).

Prices:

  • Approx A2 (420 x 565 mm) Giclee (Revisited Special*) Edition [TBC]
  • Approx A2 (420 x 565 mm) Giclee (Classic) Edition [TBC]
  • A3 (297 x 420mm) Convention “Poster” (Classic) [£10],
  • A4 (210 x 297mm) Postcard (Classic) [£2.50],
  • A5 (148 x 210 mm) Postcard (Classic) [£1]

* “RoomHead” – Revisited Special Editions  

Customised Giclee Originals – Each piece an unrepeated one-off, these are partial Giclee prints based upon existing drawings and/or sketches by the artist such as “RoomHead”, produced on quality acid free paper and sketched over or added to by the artist to create new and unique versions of an existing artwork.

02EEC76E-615C-418F-AE12-2F37D19CC38F

Each Customised Print Original will come with a Certificate of Authenticity. Each piece will also be numbered based on the amount of each edition produced, rather than its place in a limited run (as this is technically not simply a repeated “run” of a single image, and so will not be limited).

Each artwork will be signed and titled by the artist (in pencil below the image), and stamped for authenticity. Additional personal messages are possible and happily provided if purchasing directly from the artist at a convention or art fair.

All specials are photographed for archival purposes, and the artist may produce a retrospective book of these at a later date.

Custom versions of these editions to specific buyer instructions may be considered upon request (for an additional premium, dependant on the artists schedule). Let’s talk about it.

Each artwork is available in the following editions:

For the collector –

  • Artist’s Original – The original finished physical art work from which all Reproductions are taken.

The original artwork starts its journey as a series of sketches, and drawings that are then scanned and worked over digitally, using custom digital brushes (created using my own mark making and photography) and digital painting techniques similar to that used by concept artists for contemporary film and games development. This “Digital Under-Painting” then becomes a base* for the final image which is printed out as a high quality Giclee edition on quality paper (or canvas dependant on the image). This under-painting is then embellished with further drawing, paint and other techniques to create a truly unique and durable original artwork.

This original is then photographed for archival and digital reproduction purposes** and only then signed by the artist and stamped for authenticity and framed.

Every original piece of art comes with a certificate of provenance and a small process booklet that shows the creative process from initial thumbnail sketches to finished work.

*Much like the digital blue line pencils created by comic artists that they then print out and ink over traditionally.

** Reproductions of the original may be produced as large format, short run limited edition Giclee prints (see below), plus in some editions as an unsigned open edition poster quality print run at slightly smaller size on quality paper/card.

Occasionally a significantly larger format version of the original will be made as a one-off embellished artefact for larger venues.

The artist would like to make it clear that original works may well be reproduced as part of a retrospective collection in book form at a future date.

  • Limited Run, Artist Embellished Giclee Print – rarely more than 25/50 – All Signed and Edition Numbered (plus artist stamped) and inclusive of Provenance Certificate – Available framed or unframed. At actual size. (Sometimes available as smaller reproductions also).

Each Limited Run (limited edition) print is a faithful reproduction of the original finished physical art as described above, scanned, colour/tone and detail checked and reproduced on high quality acid free paper using light fast inks as per the Giclee process.

These reproductions are numbered on the front below the image or on the back, and they are stamped and come with a certificate of authenticity.

The Artist Embellished prints are produced in the same way, but have unique elements or details added to create an semi-original artwork, these are signed, titled, dated and edition numbered in pencil below the artwork, and stamped for authenticity, and a provenance certificate supplied as above. Available framed, or unframed simply as the print at the collector’s request. Each artist embellished Print states clearly below the print Embellished Giclee, and includes additional materials used pen/ink/pencil/acrylics etc.

Resident Artist for the Day

Running an event? Want an artist to set up shop and talk to people about art and making art?

I’ll bring a Drawing Board and Framed Art, Sketchbooks and other materials (subject to the space you have available or want to fill) and work on site throughout the day, or across a number of days). I can work to a theme or around a subject, or simply fill page after page of my sketchbooks whilst discussing your event or art/artist related content with your visitors. I can do short demos and answer questions about how I make the images I make, these can be suited to all ages groups/demographics.
