Update #19

By popular demand: 'I Choose You!' is now available as an Oban format (12 x 17) giclée print!

Dear Supporters,

Many of you have requested 'I Choose You!' be released as a giclée, as well as a woodblock print.  At first I was reluctant, because I had drawn that design to work specifically as a koban format (7 x 9) woodblock.

After a little thought, I realized that I was being silly.  This design will look glorious as a giclée.  

Thank you for your input.  'I Choose You!' is now officially open as a giclée!

I still encourage you to consider the woodblock version.  Because of all the open, exposed paper area of this particular design, you'll be able to see a lot more texture – a subtle embossing effect.  This one will be special, because of its simplicity and directness.

You can specifically choose it as one of your giclées, or as one of your woodblocks, in the Order Survey, which we'll send you in early September.

      Well Jed, in that case I might take a look at it when I near Graduation in a year ;)

      Jed, I think the thing you're talking about artistically is the use of "negative" space -- space with nothing in it -- when making a great design or print. The "problem" with Yoshitoshi and a lot of the other prints you have been using as source material is that they come from a time when it was considered important to fill the page with design elements, or at least color. But some of my favorite prints have spaces that are more "present by absence".

      Not that there's a whole lot of room for "negative space in video games! (I think that's part of why they invented cut-scenes!)

      Great work! I assume for those who bought the complete giclee set, this will now be included?

      Jed and Dave. Great news. I was wondering will it be possible to just add money for additional prints. Say for instance one was subscribed at the Bento Box level and wanted to buy another giclee, would they just add 40 dollars to their support?

      ...Make that an extra $45 to ship to Canada. So it's official, I can't find that much.

      It is lovely, though. And I look forward to printing it out a few times from the Colouring Book. :)

      "not officially" = "now officially" ?

      Creator Jackal Chan on August 21, 2012

      Do you mean "is NOW officially open as a giclée!" ?
