This time last year we were busy taking orders for an exciting release of four new pieces by leading artist, Dan Mumford. Each edition would also have a variant edition. Released in collaboration with ACME Archives, Bottleneck Gallery and Pulse Gallery the edition quickly sold out on advance orders……then it all went wrong!
The editions were over 10 colours and required that many silk screens, the printing turned into a nightmare, the first run was not accepted and our customers had to wait way past the May delivery we indicated, in fact it was September before we finally shipped them. It was well worth the wait, the editions are stunning in detail and print quality and everyone loved them when they finally got them.
On a recent trip over to ACME I noticed there were a few on the shelf in the archive, these were a few cancelled orders that did not ship, just a random few of each edition, no matching numbers. I grabbed them as we had collectors that could not buy when we released our allotment. So we are very happy to offer the very last of the editions to you today. Please note that we will have to confirm all orders when placed to ensure we do not oversell as this is all there is, maybe 15 pieces in total.

Q: How do you create your work? What tools do you use?
A: I create all of my work digitally using a Cintiq 22HD hooked up to an iMac. I use photoshop as my main software for drawing and very occasionally illustrator for any elements that may need to be vector. When travelling I work on the iPad pro using Adobe Draw and Adobe Sketch. There are more in depth videos and tutorials about my process over on the video page where i discuss my process, what programmes i use and the techniques behind coming up with ideas and plans for new projects.
