Since it is so cold in here, that paint won’t even properly cure, I’ve decided this week to revisit a number of those things I put on hold over the summer, things which needed some digital treatment to be complete.
This illustration is a scene from Dexter Palmer’s novel “The Dream of Perpetual Motion”, originally done for web resolution, I have had this piece slated for repainting for some time now, and finally I’ve finished it, and on a big scale- since it was my very favorite from the set.
This print is finally available as a *huge* 16×20 inch giclee on fine art rag paper (here), and as an 11×14 metallic print (here).
The original was painted on a wood panel cabinet I hand-made for the purpose of doing this painting. I’ll be finishing up the cabinet when I return home.. I can’t tell you what I’ll be filling the cabinet with – but when the construct is done, I will have had a lot of fun making things to fill it with.
Though the cabinet is not done, the painting part of it is, and it was lovingly, carefully scanned for truest color and detail, and printed as a giclee for the best, most highly-detailed and most brilliant reproduction quality.
These are printed 12×18 (the original size of the work) on Canvas (for the optimal standard framing size), in archival pigment inks on 200+ year archival quality heavyweight cotton canvas. Each is coated with a UV, moisture, and scratch-resistant coating for added longevity.
25 total will be printed. All giclees on Canvas are shipped stretched and mounted withing the US, or rolled everywhere else (but you can arrange to receive a stretche copy if you wish to work out additional shipping).
Each is hand-signed, hand-numbered, and dated by Myke Amend. Each also comes with a certificate of authenticity. Both the artwork and the certificate have matching serialized holograms affixed to them (front of certificate, back of canvas) for added assurance and to protect the value of your print.
