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.
Well yesterday was mental! The response to the release of Dreams of Louie V print edition outstripped any expectations that i had, taking 10 hours to sell out completely. Thanks to everyone who bought one! It’s going to take a week or so to wade through the orders….my poor local post office, i can imagine their faces already, as i walk in with 36 tubes to send out Special delivery.
Thanks once again to everyone who bought one!
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
