Prints Available for Sale

I'm pleased to announce the sale of limited edition exhibition quality prints of a few pieces I have worked on. Each one is approximately 12" x 17" (give or take an inch or two in some cases). They are all printed on thick archival ultrasmooth fine art paper with archival inks. They can be purchased through my site, Bumble & Bramble.

Each comes with a signed and numbered print, a signed/numbered/stamped certificate of authenticity and a little documentation on the piece which is also signed. They are $49 each or $44 each if you buy more than one (plus S&H). Note all are sold unframed only.

Generally, these are printed larger than originally produced. In the case of the Caylus board, it is approximately 70% actual size and not usable for play. The Battles of Napoleon is also smaller than the original production as the original game was huge!

Colors are rich and vibrant and, in the case of a few (Caylus, for example), are brighter and truer to the my original intent.

New Lego art and slight delay in game art prints

First off, for the many who had responded to art prints of game art, it is happening, there was just a little delay. As with all things in life, stuff just seems to take longer than one would expect. I've been experimenting with color proofs on the game art prints to get them just right which takes a little time ... and got a bit caught up in a little something else. :) That being the Lego art above. Probably just a few weeks until the game art prints are ready for shipping at which time, I'll be notifying those of you who contacted me as well as on this blog.

In the meantime... if you are interested in Legos at all, you may know I've been working on a series of abandoned homes. This one above is the third in my series called "Victorian on Mud Heap." It was made with black, white and gray pieces – about 110k - 130k of them – and took around 600 hours to make. The building stands about 5.5' x 6' x 3' and was made only with unaltered Lego pieces. No foreign materials like glue, wood, tape, paint or even modified Legos. If your curious how it was done, I have a general "making of" post on my site Snap where I will be continuing the "make of" series of this piece through the week. On that site, you can also see more close up views which I'll be adding to.

You can also purchase a print of this and even a few actual chunks of the model (one of a kind purchases) at my print shop where I will be selling the game prints in the future (you can see them there as well). Prices for the game prints might be different though than the Lego prints. Probably will sell the game prints in two sizes, one cheeper than the Lego prints and one more expensive depending on the size.

In terms of the future of Lego for me, my next piece will carry on this theme, will probably be more grand and could possibly be a permanent exhibit in an art gallery! Still working on that, but it is a possibility which I'm very excited about.

Happy gaming ... and bricking!


Limited Edition Game Art Exhibition Prints

Matte and frame not included

I’m very pleased to announce that in the next few weeks, I'll be offering for sale hand signed and numbered prints of a number of works that I created over the years. These gorgeous prints will be printed on exhibition quality archival matte paper (the kind artists use for gallery prints) using Epson’s state-of-the-art UltraChrome K3 pigment based inks. The prints will be approximately 12" x 17" – depending on the art – and larger than the original publication. Due to the printing process, these prints will be of higher quality and resolution than the original, providing a richer viewing experience.

All packages will include:
- Signed and numbered print
- Signed, numbered and embossed certificate of authenticity
- Artist’s documentation of the piece

The price will be under $50 and will include shipping anywhere in the world. I'm still working out which pieces to offer, but for now covers from El Capitan, Caylus Premium, Eagle and Lion, Leonardo da Vinci.

If you have any questions, interest in purchasing or suggestions for what you would like to see, feel free to contact me.

my new sister site: reMOCable

ReMOCable is a showcase blog that features Lego MOCs (My Own Creations: made from imagination rather than instructions) from builders everywhere, presented in themed entry. Each entry will have a unique and, hopefully, interesting theme that I curate. These themes help to provide a unique and fresh view of works seen together as a group. It is my desire to see MOCs framed within the context of a thoughtful, art environment which reMOCableshould provide. Every few days I should update the site with a new themed entry.


Newest Lego work

Here is my second Lego work, Three Story Victorian with Tree. You can read more about it on my Lego blog. This one took about 450 hours and around 55k pieces. It's all Lego, though. No foreign materials like glue or tape and no breaking of Lego pieces to make. You can also buy prints of this.
