I was recently commissioned to create a little artwork on a page from "Swallows and Amazons" I sourced a lovely yellowed copy published in the 1980s and, as I hate waste, decided to use some of the other pages to create a Limited Edition print. I have used a combination of traditional and digital painting techniques to create the illustration which has then been printed directly onto original book pages.
I only wanted to use pages that began and ended with a complete sentance which limited me somewhat and I have ended up with a small edition of 12 prints. The remaining pages will be used as a collaged background for a larger painting, nothing goes to waste here!
The artworks have been mounted in an off white textured mount that and framed in a simple, black painted frame.
