Description

Limited edition print of "Rainy Day". This is a "large" sized print.
The dimensions are for the image, there is also a white border around it for framing. 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 close-up photo.

I will not be writing any information nor putting my signature directly on the prints, instead I will provide a certificate of authenticity which will be numbered and signed by me. This certificate can be taped to the back of the framed work. I am doing it this way from now on as I will be travelling overseas a lot in 2019. My signature on the original artworks will be visible on the prints. This will also give you the option of framing so only the artwork is visible.

The original artwork was created using Copic markers and pencils on paper. It is the second illustration for my "Year in Japan" series. This piece represents winter.

I love comic book style illustrations and animation so wanted to create an artwork in a similar style. I love Studio Ghibli films and also wanted to capture a scene of everyday life in Japan.

I used a restricted range of colours, giving the work more of a mood. The blues tie in with the cold winter rain, while the creams and peaches add some warmth so the work isn't depressing.

I didn't use a ruler for any of the lines as I wanted to give it less of a realism/photographic look and more hand drawn.
