Buy a print
Prints are made using an Epson Stylus Pro 3880 on archival Canson Infinity Edition Etching Rag paper (heavyweight matte etching board with a light surface texture – it looks a lot like good watercolour paper) with the title and my signature stylishly handwritten written underneath in pencil. If I were the sort of person to call them giclee prints, I would call them giclee prints.
Prices are generally:
- $44 for A5 size (approx 21cm x 15cm – best for pocket cartoons)
- $66 for A4 size (approx 28cm x 20cm)
- $88 for A3 size (approx 30cm x 45cm)
For some prints, prices are different, but this will be specified
All prices include GST, postage and handling. Prints will be the best fit for the size of the paper. I keep them standard A5, A4 and A3 so if you’re a cheapskate you can put them in a cheapo frame from the local office supplies shop. They wall look better and last longer in proper frames but I won’t get all passive aggressive about it.
Buy an original
Here’s the bad news: these days there is almost certainly not an original in existence as I do most of my work digitally. The good news is that I am willing to redraw the cartoon on paper if an original is requested. The bad news is that it’s not cheap, contact me for a quote. It may take up to two weeks for me to complete the artwork as I usually have to search for a pen. Obviously to guarantee exclusivity, this can only happen once for any given cartoon, so first in best dressed. The finished artwork will usually be about 30% larger than printed in the paper.
