Textured cotton rag. French cold press. Natural, off white. 320gsm. Medium texture, matte. Acid free.


Limited edition print of "Rainy Day". This is a "large" sized print, with an edition number of 2/50.
The dimensions are for the image. There is also a white border around it for framing which includes my signature, title and edition number. 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.

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.
