Super Owl

January 27, 2010

Bringing a bit of colour and joy into this very grey January is a rather vivid print by the brilliant Supermundane. After many emails back and forth he finally delivered this EXCLUSIVE to Elphick’s. Super happy to have Rob’s work on board, and as with most of the prints you can buy from the comfort of your home by visiting www.elphicksshop.com

Bird in Bloom Etching

January 27, 2010

New Year, new etching! I started etching again after long break at Christmas and it’s great to be back. I’ve been working on this one for some time and managed to print it for the first time last week. For any of you who are familiar with my work you will have noticed I have recreated the collage version of ‘Bird in Bloom’. All those long hours of drawing have paid off and I am really pleased with the results. You can find out more about the size and price by looking at www.elphicksshop

Valentine Bears

January 21, 2010

Claire Hartigan has just dropped off her new prints. There is a special valentines edition ‘Valentine Bears’ and some super cute foxes which I will post up later. She has also delivered an original drawing of an owl which is so beautiful that I’m tempted myself! I don’t have an image but if you are around Columbia Road at the weekend please take a look.

Claire Hartigan ‘Valentine Bears’ £12

New Artist at Elphick’s

January 20, 2010

I discovered Claire Hartigan’s work last summer at ‘Fresh Meat’, an exhibition of Kingston illustration graduates at Shoreditch Town Hall. I bought several of her Otter and Bear prints (now sold out) and took a card with a view to selling her work at Elphick’s. That card got lost under a pile of papers but reappeared just before Christmas. It’s always great to discover a new artist and Claire’s work has been extremely well received with most editions close to being sold out. She is definitely one to watch and these little gems are a very affordable £12 each.

New prints are arriving tomorrow but for now please enjoy these. They are available to buy online at www.elphicksshop.com

Absence

January 20, 2010

There’s most definitely been an absence on my part, it’s been a while since I posted anything on the blog. It seemed apt therefore to introduce you to this very clever print by the fabulous James Brown. Two classic proverbs to reflect your mood, hang it one way and ‘Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder’. Or if like me your glass is half empty right now, turn it around and ‘Out of Sight, Out of Mind’. Available to buy online by clicking here.
