Over the years, I have made a concerted effort to keep my art prices as low as I can. Accordingly, as much as possible, I sell my art by word of mouth, outside of galleries. This allows me to avoid a 40-60% markup to cover the gallery's cut (Yah, in case you didn't know, usually an artist decides how much they want to earn for their artwork and then the gallery marks it up 40-60%. This means that the consumer commonly pays twice as much as the art was intended to sell for). I commonly spend a month of full-time work on an illustration and sell it for less than a weeks worth of wages. I believe that art is extremely important, and for me it is a necessity. However, I also realize that art is a luxury, and I would prefer for my artwork to hang on admirers' walls instead of my own. Pricing art is an abstract process muddled by hidden costs and nonlinear methods of creation. Time delegated to painting, drawing and other media account only for a fragment of an artist's labor, and completed artwork represents a mere fraction of the artistic process. One of the hidden costs is the countless hours artists spend fostering inspiration. Sometimes this inspiration presents itself with minimal effort - maybe while drinking a cup of coffee. Conversely, this inspiration can also take a lifetime to realize. Should an artist be lucky enough to find inspiration, they will undoubtedly encounter creative blocks. This creative process is unique for each individual artist and for me it changes with each creation. It is simultaneously exhausting and wonderful and is what ultimately brings life to art.
In conclusion, art is difficult and time consuming. Be it as it may, in keeping with my goal of making my art more affordable, I am now producing prints of my original artwork. After a long search, I found a superb printer who does justice to my original artwork with limited edition giclee (zhee-klay) prints. A giclee print is a high-quality, archival reproduction. This means that each component of the reproduction process, including the paper, the ink, and the printing, is of the utmost quality. Its combination of exceptional color and thick, archival paper produces a print almost indistinguishable from the original. Furthermore, the archival printing process maintains the quality of the print for a very long time - especially if it is framed well.
How To PurchaseWhile I continue to sell my original artwork and handmade frames, whenever possible I will be offering prints as well. Each print is hand signed and numbered. I have created a group of new illustrations and will continue to pump out new ones. As seen below, most of my art is of landscapes that inspire me due to their natural beauty rock climbing association. Some of my illustrations are more literal representations of specific landscapes, while others are figurative. Most include lettering representative of the propensity for these landscapes to elicit powerful thoughts and longing. Below you will find a listing of each original illustration, respective prints, and prices. The art comes unframed. If you're interested in a handmade frame, please contact me to work out pricing. Everything is handled through Paypal. After receiving the payment, I will ship your art. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please enjoy.
