I am now able to offer signed, dated, framed and matted Giclée prints of some of my more popular works. Some are personal works, while others are cover art that are capable of standing on their own.
Giclée prints are fine art prints of the highest quality, higher than lithographs. They differ from traditional prints in a couple of ways. Rather than a four color system (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black), Giclée prints are created using an eight color system: cyan, light cyan, magenta, light magenta, yellow, black, light back, and light light black. What this means is that they are produced using a wider spectrum of colors.
They also differ in how those colors are used. With lithography, which is what is used for posters and newspapers, the color is applied to the ground (in this case, the paper) by using differing size dots of color. With Giclée printing, the color is actually mixed on the paper. This produces a more bright and uniform result, even when examined close up. No dots or grain that isn't in the original work of art. It's more akin to how color mixes and blends as an artist applies paint to a canvas.
For my first Giclée print available for purchase, I give you Tarranau.
|scale is approximate|
Tarranau is printed on an Enhanced Matte surface (32.0" x 20.1"), framed in a sleek Matte Black Basic frame (finished size: 37.3" x 25.6" - see scale on left). It's double matted, with the top mat in Teton Sky, complimenting the mage's robes. The inner mat is a soft Oyster (acid free paper - to help protect the print over time), bringing out the glowing highlights in the ship's wood and metal surfaces, plus the highlights in the sky and skin tones.
Since glass breaks so easily in transport, to protect your art print, I use an Acrylic Glazing. Glass can always be added locally once your print arrives safely if you wish to have it under glass.
Normal shipment is 10-14 business days.

Tarranu (framed, matted, signed, dated) retails for $386.13 + $22.99 S&H. Total + $409.12
