About this project

From Print to Publishing House

Everything starts small...

There is a wide variety of print projects I intend to  create. In addition to limited edition art prints, I will move on to small run poetry,  prose, and multimedia art book projects. But as I said earlier, everything starts small.

As an artist working in galleries of New York City's renowned SoHo district, I began to fall in love with all forms of print media. Through working with prints from artists such as Dali, Miro, Picasso, and others, I began to develop an idea what prints were, how they relate to the artist, and the art business. I began to see what was done right, and what was done wrong. I began to form a philosophy that reflected how I would like my work to be treated.

I designed this to be a break-even project, that is focused on the philosophy of what art prints could be. If successful, any remaining prints created by this project will be sold via my website, as well as other retail venues, such as conventions, art fairs etc, at a higher, still affordable, price.

The Art

"The Climber" original oil painting is 19" x 24" Oil on Masonite.  The print will be a 12" x 16" offset lithograph edition of 150, with 10 artist proofs numbered (I/X - X/X). It will be printed on a heavy weight stock that is 30% comprised of recycled material. Included in the edition are approximately 300 unnumbered prints.

All numbered prints will receive a Certificate of Authenticity from the publisher.

International backers please add $5 to cover the additional shipping.

Moving Forward

In the next month and a half I will be redesigning my website to add a more formal store section, as well as getting the piece professionally photographed so that it will be ready to print. Any funds raised in excess of my goal will go towards the next print, to be released in early April 2013. Some day I hope to be running my own publishing house, but once again, everything starts small.

Thanks!
