A Print-First Development Procedure
For a while, I only created original paintings and didn’t do prints. The concept behind the art required that I create original works only. The philosophy had to do with creating representations of digital works in a 1-of-1 medium. It gets into a lot of artsy talk that I’d rather not get into now, but if you have one of those paintings, I will never create prints of those. Enjoy!
While a lot of artists create prints to supplement their original works, that’s never factored into my art. In fact, I would almost rather not have to deal with the idea of prints at all, but times change.
Recently, my art has changed a bit, and the message no longer demands the works be unique offerings. So now, I have a started creating prints and will be creating them more often. In fact, the message/philosophy has changed so much that I have found myself with a print-first procedure. Basically, I create these images and then decide which ones I like enough to convert to paintings. Some of the prints are rather difficult to render as paintings, so there’s that issue as well.
