Whilst the first to dismiss any idea of commercialism, interest in some of his 'print' ideas has been prompting Mark to offer the chance to people of purchasing one-off 'original' prints from the selected images.
All images created by Mark using computer software and complemented by tradtional drawing media.
It is from the later Sketchbooks that the majority of his 'Print' ideas emanated.
He found that the finished works which combined some computer-generated imagery, worked on with traditional media could be returned to the computer to create printed images from which prints could be made - he then worked out a way in which they could be finished to resemble original oil paintings.
The prints are 285mm x 200mm.
They are mounted on stable 12mm MDF board and framed with natural wooden frames of 23mm x 15mm section. The frames will be individually waxed for protection. Mark works with a local craftsman, Andy Fry, who makes and waxes each frame to order.
The overall size of the mounted print is 315mm x 230mm.
On the reverse they are supplied with 'D' rings, hooks and cord for hanging.
Due to the nature of the production,
Mark makes these to order and you should allow a minimum of 2 weeks for production and despatch.
The price for any one mounted, framed and varnished image is £89.00 + £8.00p&p per print (UK mainland only). Please email or telephone him with the detail of which print you want. This can be followed with payment via PayPal or a cheque sent to him.
Despatch will be via Hermes.

If you like the idea of having an original but not the price.
This is the answer; prints which resemble 'original oil paintings'.
