1. Free shipping
Shipping on my prints from INPRNT.com is free worldwide from now until Feb 1, 2015! I have a few of my favourite illustrations from Dream Boats available there as prints.
2. Backyard Books closes soon
And, the Backyard Books illustration exhibition closes at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum on February 15th. If you’ve never been, it’s worth a visit just for the giant whale skeleton that hangs from the ceiling and because you can walk all over some of the specimens (picture proof below). Also there are lots of drawers full of treasures. Well, at least the kind of things I think are treasures. Shells, insects, bones…
There is daily programming for children – story time (under the blue whale, of course), puppet shows etc, so it’s a great outing for kids.
The illustration I have on exhibit is a cover rough from my very first picture book, which is still in print and still plodding along…13 years later. The curators paired the painting with a cetacean skull.
INPRNT.com has another shipping sale on right now, they are offering FREE (worthy of all-caps) worldwide shipping this weekend (weekend of June 13, 2014). If you are from anywhere outside the US, you’ll understand why this is such a big deal.
So I’ve added two new prints from Dream Boats, to my shop:
All prints are gallery-quality giclée art prints on 100% cotton rag archival paper, printed with archival inks. Each art print features a minimum one-inch border. Prints are unframed and unmatted.
I’ve seen the prints myself and the print quality is really excellent. Large prints arrive in a mailing tube, small prints are in a flat, cardboard envelope.
Large prints require some flattening when they are unpacked – carefully unroll them and put them under a few heavy books for a day or so.
Here are some photos of my test prints, packaging, as well as framing examples (all prints are unmatted and unframed) and while they are signed digitally, I do not hand sign prints sold through INPRNT as they do not pass through my hands on their way out:
