Tank Girl was originally commissioned by a lovely man for his pregnant wife, who has a secret guilty pleasure for Tank Girl. After seeing a lot of my work, he wanted me to do my own version of the legendary, Jamie Hewlett's, Tank Girl Comic. To me that's like asking someone to reinvent the wheel. The pressure of having to live up to someone you idol is immense, but I'm so glad I took the challenge on and I think they are too.
Fine Art reproductions are made by taking 4-6 photographs of my originals and stitching them together. This way there’s more information to create a crisp print at the same size as the original painting. Then they’re printed and colour matched, a process called proofing which can take several frustrating hours before the first usable copies finally roll out ‘hot off the press’ using lightfast inks on archival 310g Hahnemühle paper, which is not actually paper, it’s ripped up cotton rags. Hahnemühle is the brand of paper - an excellent paper mill that started in 1584 Germany.
AN INTERESTING FACT: During the Second World War, the company created paper for the SS-Reichssicherheitshauptamt's efforts to produce counterfeit British banknotes as part of Operation Bernhard.
Each Limited Edition print is embossed, hand signed and numbered by me the artist. Remember paper prints that are framed will see it's lifetime double that of one left in it's tube under your bed.
