Well it’s here, the much requested and much against my better judgement; a whopping 9 colour bloody silkscreen, yep thats right 9! And not just 9 pulls, oh no! That would just be tooooo easy, there’s in excess of 15 pulls in this print. It’s been printed by those lovely guys at K2. Entitled “I should Coco” its an edition of 50 on 250gsm white Somerset paper, signed and embossed, made in collaberation with Reed Projects gallery in Stavanger. Mail them if you want one, but i think its being released primarily to visitors to the gallery on the 9th of November.
Its summer and from mid way through this month i’m rarely in the studio till after Nuart in October. So i thought i’d release the last print from a batch of printing that was done over the winter. You may remember it from Robin Hood Tax posts from before.
They are an 2 colour Edition of 43 on 300 gsm arches 88
£25 with P&P £10
You can get them here
So finally here is the TOY print, much delayed and with an entire miss print run in between. 5 colour silkscreen on 300 gsm arches 88 cotton rag 56x76cm hand finished with a roller and red acrylic paint. Its a slightly smaller edition of 41 rather than the 50 previously stated, but the price is still the same £80.
Postage and packing is £20 which sounds steep but each print comes double tubed and trackable, the extra weight of the tube system adding to the postage. These things are post proof, there is nothing worse than getting something that has been smashed up in transit is there. Those within the UK will receive there prints with royal mails next day delivery, outside the UK will be sent Royal Mail Airsure. You can buy there here.
All come blind stamped signed and numbered with an accompanying C.O.A
There is a smaller blue edition of 7 in blue at £140 plus £20 P&P
you can buy there here
Ok so the prints are finally in my hands, just starting to sort the hand finishing and should be dropping them tomorrow evening so check back here then. Thanks for your patience.
Sorry if your checking this to find out about the latest print release, it will be unavoidably delayed till mid next week. Apparently the courier is avoiding picking the dam thing up. Will get you more news as it happens. Again sorry for the delay!
Apologies if your checking the site to find out about the next Dotmasters print release, there has been a delay. I won’t say too much now, as we are still all trying to fix the faults that mean that the release is delayed ie. reprinting the edition again….i know, a pain, but these things have to be right. The new release date will be next friday the 18th. Any way below is a taster of the forth coming print with out the hand finishing, the full painful story will be told when it drops next week. Sorry folks, but good things come to those that wait…..apparently.
The above is the printers proof so colours may vary to the finished print, it will be an edition of 50 hand finished with the TOY hand finished in mini rollered in red acrylic on arches 88 white 300gsm cotton rag 56cm x 76cm at £80. All prints will be double tubed to prevent damage during postage.
The history of the piece is that it was painted for the Nuart Landmark series two years ago and proved a firm favorite with the people of Stavanger.

So that was a lesson in repetition, but the eagle has flown, excuse any delay…. it took us a bit by surprise. Every print went double tubed, with so many orders overseas it seemed best to take the extra cost on the chin rather than deal with all the extra shipping costs for damaged stuff. It was all of a bit of a learning curve for this our 1st self produced print. It was always going to be a bumpy ride, If your in the UK then expect your print tomorrow before 1pm, in other parts of the world its 3-4 days. Thanks for all the orders and of course your support. There are other prints scheduled for the year so check back in at the end of May to see whats next.
Since last summer i have been getting requests for this image The Dreams of Louis V to be released as a silkscreen print. It was a very popular canvas from last years Outside in show in Stavanger, Norway. The various colours in the florets would have meant multiple screens at an incredible cost.
The solution seemed to be a hand finished silkscreen edition. Printed by those nice chaps down at Another fine mesh on Arches 88 blanc cotton rag stock, 56cm x 76cm (22″ x 30″) with a deckled edge all the way round.
Then hand finished in the studio in depths of Barking
An edition of 36, signed and blind stamped by The Dotmasters,
