My First Venture Into Giclee Prints. . .

6 Oct

My first venture into the art of giclee printing (fancy, archival-quality digital prints on good paper) was created from my popular “Crazy Salad” watercolor/colored pencil painting. The original painting was sold a few weeks ago to a lady in Illinois. It was a sample illustration for a book jacket for the hilarious 1973 Nora Ephron book of essays entitled Crazy Salad. Nora Ephron’s three early collections of essays — Crazy Salad, Wallflower at the Orgy, and Scribble, Scribble, plus her autobiographical novel Heartburn–were all big influences on my own comedy/autobiographical writing style (excerpts of which I will post here at some point.)

The giclee prints of my Crazy Salad painting came out very well. The Decor cold-press paper is gorgeous and the printmaker captured the colors fairly accurately. I’m selling them for $30 apiece at my Etsy site, plus shipping and sales tax (if applicable.)
