A well-deserved rest

Although there is of course still much to be done before the new Dark Crystal extravaganza hits the screens next year Brian Froud has finished his work on the project and is taking a well-deserved rest.  It has been a lot of woerk and a massive outlay of creative energy but we’re certain it will all have been worthwhile when the latest chapter of The Dark Crystal legacy finally emerges.  Of course, he isn’t completely relaxing and has just signed some godd fairies art prints for us that I’m sure his many eager fans will be looking to buy for themselves or as Christmas presents.  You’ll find the new stock right here and the overall Brian Froud section is here.

Always nice to get feedback

Every now and again a customer takes the time to show us how they’ve displayed the prints we’ve framed for them and it is always nice to see the final results of our work .. like the photo we received today of a set of three Josh Kirby Discworld prints we supplied framed to one of our customers –

Framed Discworld pictures up on the wall

“OMG it’s just like Christmas!” groaned one of our packers as the 20th anniversary sale got into full swing and even some old customers we haven’t heard from for some time turned up to grab some of the rare items that we, in our usual fit of madness, included in the sale.  We also managed to list one item based on an old retail price giving the customer rather more off than had been planned so he got a really good bargain, not that he knows it unless he compared the retail price on his order confirmation with the current section for that artist.

Anyway, it was fun to celebrate the 20th Birthday of Artists UK and I expect the next twenty years will pass just as rapidly and as long as there are walls to hang pictures on, bodies to wear t-shirts, art books to read … you get the idea … we’ll be here, even if those walls are on spaceships, Mars or in some far-flung galaxy … Artists Andromeda, now there’s an idea ….. 🙂

Ed Org shows coming up very soon!

Yes, it is time once again to see if you can grab that chance to see the great artist in person at one of his many craft shows around the country.  If you really have no idea who Ed Org is (shame on you!) but you’d love to see some amazing artwork then have a look here and then go meet the man at one of these dates and places –
