Original DMCropley Art for Sale (maybe)

I’m running out of space and have been trying to work out what to do with all of the artwork I have created over the 20 years I’ve been Life Drawing. I have original intaglio prints, acrylic canvasses, watercolour studies and much much more sitting unloved and unseen.

I’m considering whether its worth putting stuff up in an etsy shop (or similar) and having to go through the rigmarole of self assessment tax forms again.

So, help a guy out. How much would you pay for my arts? I’ve set up a mega simple poll at the following link. Click it and tick a checkbox, it takes literally 2 seconds and is completely anonymous.

Love you.

Thanks,

Limited Edition Original Inkings

So this is a bit of a departure from what I’ve been doing recently and a bit of a new direction – if you can call rocking it old school a new direction. I’ve been itching to have a crack at dip pen and ink work for a while now so I decided to fire up the old lightbox and ink a couple of pics from my sketchbooks. Then I decided to test whether its still fun to ink the same drawing over and over again, just like in traditional 2D animation clean up. So I did. And it is. It was also nice opportunity to watch a lot of episodes of ‘bottom’ while I was at it. The outcome is a couple of nice wedding present prints and a limited edition of 10 original inkings of a splendid ‘Curious Head Worm’. Here’s pics – looky:

The next big thing on my mind is to go big! I want to get hold of the most massive canvasses I can get and basically do the same as the inkings but on a titanic scale. Big ass Cropley head worms and freaky life models 10 ft high! …but we’ll see how that goes.
