The Illustration Process
My fine art illustration prints are a combination of traditional and digital mediums. Sometimes the process of my work includes using the digital medium for parts of a piece in order to achieve a final and beautiful creation. This may include touch-ups, shading, color, or combining multiple layers. The nature of this process naturally means that the final piece is translated from a digital format to a hard format in the form of a fine art print. For a frame of reference, the final product of fine art photography is the same essential process. Most of my fine art illustration prints are created in limited edition runs of small numbers. Each piece is numbered and signed by me, the artist. Adhering to small runs of limited quantities ensures that you are indeed receiving a unique and rare piece of art. Most prints are offered with size options in standard sizing, making it easy to mat or frame a piece. An example of this is that Untitled Work Number 1 has been printed in 3 different sizes with only 50 prints per size. You purchase a print in size 11×14 and receive number 12/50 because only 50 were made in that size run. I use a professional printer based in the Midwest and all pieces are printed with archival quality inks and matte paper. Utilizing fine quality printing truly makes a difference in the final product, and it is my hope that the print you receive looks as good, if not better, than an original would look.
