Description

This is a LARGE, unframed, limited edition print. It is titled and signed. The colours of the print are almost identical to the original. For this print I have used a higher quality, textured paper. The paper colour is slightly off white and more in keeping with the paper used for the original. You can see the texture of the paper in the photos. The dimensions are for the size of the image. There is a white border around the image for framing.

The original artwork was created using markers and pencil on watercolour paper.

After completing Tokyo Street Signs I looked for another street full of interesting signs to illustrate. I wanted to draw a Melbourne street, as that is the city I was born in. Degraves Street is a very popular street in the heart of Melbourne's CBD, packed with restaurants and cafes. I also love the beautiful old architecture and wrought iron of the street lamps which contrast the modern neon signs. The artwork captures a view of the street that can't be seen today as the street signs have since changed, with only a few still remaining the same.

The original artwork was destroyed by water. This artwork was done as a commission to re-do the scene, but even better than the original as my skills had developed since then. The commission was from one of the Deans at Melbourne University.

I would like to create more urban scenes of Melbourne in the future.
