I am so enjoying the production side of this run of Limited Edition prints. Â I know I keep saying they are stunning but they really are. Â The lab pulled out the stops supplying the most amazing paper to print them on. Â It is so thick I was worried whether they would roll tight enough to fit in the 3″tubes. Â Thankfully they do and for the last few days it has been really busy in the office packing them out to the various locations. Â We have had 2 shipped to the USA, 1 to France, 3 to Scandinavia and the rest in the UK. Â The shipping costs to the USA and Europe are much cheaper than I was advised so the good news is shipping to the US is now
only Â£10 and Europe Â£8 .Â **UPDATE ** Sorry but shipping remains at Â£14 for Europe and USA. Â If it is ever any cheaper after packaging I will refund the difference. Â Postage within the UK will remain free of charge but you can now request the option to have them sent recorded delivery for Â£6.50. Â At the moment only Slash and the mad Hatter Ville are available in the shop but there are some further prints being produced that I hope you will want to have hanging on your wall. Â As I said before these are not just photographic prints. Â I have tried to give them the feel and look of a silk-screen print but with the quality of a photographic reproduction. Â To do this takes a lot of time, but is proving to be a lot of fun in the process! Â Check back soon!
Most of the summer was spent on tour with IRON MAIDEN across North America which was a total blast. Â The setlist of songs which will soon be coming to the UK & Europe was a treat to hear every night. Â Seventh Son of a Seventh Son reminded me of the first time I saw IRON MAIDEN live and also reminded me why they are still the greatest live band on the planet. If that wasn’t keeping me busy enough I was also working on Steve Harris’ new solo project ‘BRITISH LION’. Â Shot a load of stills in Alberta, Canada and shot a couple of videos for the band in-between the Maiden shows in Calgary and Vancouver.
It is nearly a year ago that my book ‘On Board Flight 666’ published and I thank everyone who went out and brought it. Â I am still really pleased with how it turned out and I am in talks with the publishers about a digital version and possibly a soft back version in the USA. Â We have also discussed a follow up book but it is early days and thinking back to one year ago and the amount of work that went into OBF666 I am asking whether I am ready to go through that again? Never say never!
I will post up the next 2 art prints soon!
