ANGELOLOGY print [FRAMED] [waiting list in description]
[hey! these are sold out right now but I'm going to do another run of them when I'm back in the studio at the end of the month. if you want to get on it you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me on twitter]
This is the first printing of this image from the studio, I have ten made up here already and I numbered the run out of 20 so, presumably I'll make ten more. This edition is the green to blue fade you see here. It matches the current run of the rosary prints I have going on right now you can see here. Obviously as an artist I "think through" the visual situation completely so, I've been calling this the "garden" color scheme, it has the greens and blues of "deep nature" and then on the frame, the cool grey is kind of like stone, and the warm grey showing through that is like wood (well, it literally is wood). I think it was inspired by being in the woods a lot at this lake near the studio.
Obviously, if you are familiar with me and "the vibe" you know I'm very into mysticism, theology, church history, and things like that. All that and more intersects at the study of angels, sometimes called "angelology" which is the title for this print.
In case you're unfamiliar with his work, there's a guy named Psudeo-Dionysius the Areopagite who wrote a book called "On The Celestial Hierarchy" that is an early work about the ranks of angels and the celestial hierarchy in general. I am not a theologian, but I would say it's been very influential on and foundational for Christianity in general, so I based this print on his writings. Essentially all writing about angels I have found from after him references his work in some way - that's been my personal experience at least.
I am not a theologian, I'd rather people not think of this as "the 100% official definitive authoritative guide", it's more like you rolled into a village in medieval times and there's an artist there who made one of these.
This print is different than the others, I'm printing this from home with this super nice printer I got, so they're not commercially printed like the other prints. I'm able to print with super high quality ink (it almost looks like paint on top of the paper) onto thick watercolor paper, so at the risk of sounding pretentious, it's more of a 'fine art' style print. All the ink and paper is archival (i.e. acid free) so it won't yellow over time and is as "won't eventually fade" as physically possible. I sign and number the back of the paper itself, and I'm only going to make a certain amount.
That's it! I've been working on this for a while so I'm excited to put it out there. I assure you they look very fresh.
It's $65 plus 8 for shipping, I have to buy the frames and all the shipping supplies and the paper and ink is super expensive so, that's the story. If you're outside the US it's a little more. They make me ship these as first class packages (to be fair, they are first class materials) so it's like 30 to ship.
The print is 8.5 x 11 and with the frame it's about 10 x 12.5 (inches). The frames are actually wood and have sort of a "naked wood" feel (i.e. you can feel that they're wood when you touch them). It was actually really difficult to find a good quality frame supplier so, ultimately I'm very pleased with how this turned out.
