Ordering a Signed Print
Below is an unsigned print of Island Two, Bossa Paraiso. The prints are done at Tribeca Printworks. It’s a small, friendly business in downtown Manhattan. I work with them on getting things just right. When correcting colors and levels and adjusting these to the paper stock, subtle changes make a HUGE difference in the final product. And when I see the finished print it looks so good I want to eat it.
I had this print at home in my studio for a week. In terms of color, detail and vividness, it was hard to see any difference between it and the original painting. I signed it at home.
I sign, name and number each print, using prismacolor pencils. I don’t like the signature to detract from the artwork, so I choose colors and placement that doesn’t interfere or draw attention to itself.
The Island of Milonga
I signed this print at a work table in Tribeca Labs, hot off the press, before they shipped it.
