A Free Print for my blog readers
Happy New Year everyone. I hope you had a good Christmas, and I apologise for not posting more regularly.
To make up for it, I’m going to start the year by offering some free artwork.
It’s a print of my most well-known and well-liked piece of work, called “Man of Sorrows”
There’s no catch. Just download it, and print it off.
Or turn it a postcard or a mugs or a t-shirt, or use it in a powerpoint presentation. Do what ever you want with it, as long as it’s for personal use. (I mean: no sneaky making money directly from it. That wouldn’t be fair now would it? I’ve just given it to you for free. Thanks 🙂 ).
The best thing I can suggest is that you take it to a printshop, and get them to print it (best size at A4 but no more than A3), then buy a nice frame for it, and put it on your wall.
Why am I doing this? As I said before. I’d far rather you had a piece of my work than not be able to afford one.
I want you to be able to have this in your space if you want it, and for it to move you, like it has moved me.
I made the work but it forced me to think about poverty and spirituality, and where those things can be found. It sat in my thoughts even when I wasn’t looking at it, a changed the atmosphere of every room I hung it in for the better. It made me think about transcendence and immanence, about art and life, and about sacred and profanity, and what am I doing about those things?
I guess that’s more important to me than being paid for the original. If you want to buy the original, then that’s a different story, but this is about the best quality photo I have of it, and I think it will give you all the things it gave me and a whole lot of other things that are specific to you.
Have a good 2009.
