Thursday 16th June 2011 - Series of Etchings

Before I left uni I spent something silly like 10 hours straight in the print room, etching. These I all made to sell at Artsfest, although, I may peddle a couple away before then, seeing as though I have over 100 of them. Currently there are 9 different styles, 7 of which are here, some of which I'm still waiting to tidy up.

They are all standard Mars Black etching ink on either Seawhite or Fabriano watercolour paper. Then, to give them all some life and originality, I've added quick, loose passes of colour over them, harkening back to my final etchings for a uni assignment (see previous post). The colours are chose pretty much at random, although, with pre-orders I could probably accomodate a requested colour scheme.

To show what I mean: Here's the same etching with a different colour pass:

These will be £5 each, roughly A5 size, give or take a few inches.

As well as hand 'coloured', I will also hand highlight areas with white ink, giving some areas some much needed contrast.

As you can see, they're all numbered and hand signed, making them a series of original pieces (the joys of traditional printing techniques).

This will also be £5, but is larger, and of a larger print run (20). An ode to Salvador Dali, personally this is my favourite of them all.

Also: 8 page comic incoming in the next 2/3 weeks, watch this space!
