Omniscient Owl

January 26, 2011

I placed an order of Harper prints on Monday so they should be arriving in the next couple of weeks. I’m looking forward to the arrival of this lithograph titled ‘Omniscient Owl’. I’d never heard of the word Omniscient before so thanks Charley for adding a new word to my vocabulary! If it’s new to you click here to find out its meaning. There’s been a lot of interest in Charley’s prints and I’m very low on stock, if you would like to know when the next batch has arrived it might be worth following me on twitter.

Mellow Yellow

January 24, 2011

Charley Harper’s ‘Gregarious Grosbeaks’ has been featured in February’s issue of Elle Decoration in ‘the month’s pick of great colours’. There seems to be accents of yellow flashing through the whole issue , which is uplifting when it’s so grey and cold outside! I’ve just placed a new order with the Harper studio which should be arriving real soon. If you want follow me on twitter I will send a tweet just as soon as they have arrived.

Darwin’s Finches

This image was a firm favourite of mine when it was only available as a greeting card, so I’m really pleased that the Estate of Charley Harper have now released it as an open edition lithograph. I’ve just added it to the online shop here. All the other prints are back in stock too, just in time for Christmas…phew!

Charley Harper Coming to Elphick’s Soon

October 2, 2008

I am literally over the moon to announce that I shall soon be stocking prints by the legendary Charley Harper. The hard part is deciding which prints to choose because there are so many fantastic works. I also really love the work of Brett Harper and Edie Harper so I thought I would post some of their images to look at too. Buy online here.

A friend introduced me to Charley Harper’s work and I fell in love with it immediately.

Based in Cincinnati, Ohio he was a modernist artist and illustrator best known for his graphic and stylized depictions of birds and wildlife.
