I'm starting work soon on two new series of prints.
The first of these is inspired by my longstanding love of jazz and blues. I hope to have about six images in the set, in editions of no more than 10 for each image, so this will be a strictly limited production. I'm still putting some ideas down as sketches, but it is likely that these prints will incorporate various different print media, probably screenprinting or linocut plus some digital elements.
The second will build on these digital prints that you can see here on flickr. These are based on Neolitihic rock art found in Northumberland and Scotland. The pictures shows images made entirely digitally, but the new set will, as with the Jazz set, be 'hybrids' incorporating various print forms.

I'm also looking at new ways of selling these prints. One option I'm considering is a sort of 'Print of the Month Club' where you would subscribe to receive over the year one or both of these sets. If you take only one set you would get a print every other month. I appreciate that this implies a certain amount of trust on your part but the deal I'm thinking about would include the option to cancel your subscription at any time and also to return any print that you were unhappy with for any reason. Guide price per print would be around Â£50.00, but that may vary depending on the final images. You would pay a proportion of the cost of production for the whole series, probably 30% with the balance due in stages with each print.
To find out more as I develop the idea, please sign up for my mailing list using the form in the sidebar on the right. The next edition will be going out at the beginning of January so if you sign up soon, I may have more information available by then.
