The time has finally arrived to start delivering calendars. Thanks to those of you who have been patient while I figure out how to produce, package, and deliver my first batch of printmaking.
I made a critical error in the printing process and skipped an ink additive that's kind of necessary - the drying agent. With it, these prints would have been ready to start delivering before I left for the conference last week. Without it, they're only ready now. 12 days instead of 3. I won't make that mistake again!
Now that they're ready to handle, I'm signing and numbering them and adding a certificate of authenticity. Let's just imagine that one day I'll have a level of esteem in the printmaking and art worlds that makes my work collectible. My signature coupled with this certificate to prove that there are very few of these in the world is what will make them valuable. If that never happens, you'll have a beautiful memento of helping an artist start a brand new business.
Each piece is signed, numbered and put into a protective sleeve with a piece of matte board to keep it from bending.
