Welcome to the Gold Series: With these prints, I have taken images from my original pen and ink drawings and created beautiful prints that I have printed on high-quality silk-finish paper and then applied a special gold foiling technique that is oh-so-luxe!! Unlike the colour prints, these images are created from the drawings that haven’t yet been fully coloured, and will only be produced in small quantities which essentially means you are getting a Limited Edition print. Each one has my signature and date of completion embedded in it. The trios will only be sold as a complete set of three 5×7” prints while the singles will be in the larger 8×10” size and window mounted to fit an 11×14” frame.
Trio frames are created from wood with a beautifully crafted acrylic glass piece to prevent breakage during transit. And trust me, this acrylic is convincingly glass-like!
As in all small businesses, the grunt work is done by yours truly – I mat and back each print and seal them in a cellophane sleeve for protection. Your print will be shipped in a fortified cardboard mailer for no-bending safety and top quality cardboard for the framed Trios.
All of my images are copyrighted. Please do not take without permission! **
Artworks are all printed on top-quality papers and all are archival. The paper is acid free, fade resistant and has a satin finish. The 8 x 10” and 11 x 14” prints are printed onto 210 gsm natural archival paper.
Each one of de Shan’s illustrations are created by request, and they are freehand – singularly made from the crosshatching and intricate pen work of fine felt tip and ballpoint pens. This involves hundreds and thousands of lines which take countless hours. This process is known as pen and ink crosshatching and is a very intricate and painstakingly time-consuming process. de Shan’s discipline, concentration and attention to detail gives each piece a life of its own.
Once finished, each drawing is then scanned and will eventually be coloured digitally for printing. (de Shan never prints originals in the pen and ink black and white stage, so if it is black and white, it is the original). When colouring, layers and layers of colour are applied using the mouse as a paintbrush, which gives a more free-hand look and vibrancy of colour. All of our inks are fade-proof.
PRINTS – Orders are shipped within 2 to 3 business days, however larger and/or canvas prints take longer as they are printed once ordered. Please allow 2 to 3 weeks for those in Australia, and 3 to 4 weeks overseas. All parcels are sent via courier unless the destination is remote and then Australia Post is used.
Every parcel is carefully wrapped and packaged in custom-designed packaging for safe shipping.
FRAMES – Framed prints are also package with the utmost care and placed in custom-designed boxes for safe travel. We only use a fragile shipping company when sending our frames, and they receive royalty treatment. You can choose to have your order upgraded so that you will receive tracking information and be updated on your orders every move from dispatch to delivery.
