I work closely with Chris to Achieve the absolute best print possible. The paper is 310gsm, %100 cotton, with a perfectly textured surface. Each print is skillfully hand-deckled, numbered, titled and signed in pencil by the artist Ty Rawls. Finally the print is embossed with Ty’s official stamp of approval.

Ever since my days of training with Paul I've been thinking about printing my work. Archival prints were called Gicle' back then, and were a key part of Paul's success, so I always knew that I wanted prints to be a part of mine too. As time went on, the details of creating museum quality prints evolved. Today printing is done a few different ways, but if you want Museum Archival Quality Prints the criteria becomes more specific. The photograph, the paper, the ink, the machine doing the printing, and most importantly the print master making the prints are all essential parts of the equation.

Part of the advice Paul used to give me was to learn about printing. It was that simple. He always told me that selling prints was a big part of his success and I should take it seriously. I understood what he was saying, but at the time I was working on my comic book and printing meant something completely different to me, everything about printing comic books is different. I knew what Archival prints were, I saw his and could tell they were better than a poster, but I didn’t know the details behind what made prints valuable, and how to make them. At the time I was too wrapped up in learning to paint.

Many of the fine details of printing a museum quality print remain a secret of print publishers and collectors all around the world. This artistic group of people is small and gaining access is difficult, only by good luck and friendship did I happen to gain this knowledge. From one of the most respected print experts in America I learned the information necessary to make my new prints. Ed Ogul, of Paramour Fine Arts has become a good friend, and print collecting mentor. Ed has dealt with collectors and Museums from all around the world for over 40 years. With Eds Ogul’s guidance I have created my FIRST EDITION Prints. Each painting is Professionally Photographed by Chris Bennet at Image Works in Detroit, using only specially selected materials. I am producing small edition sizes of 25 and under, giving you the best print I possibly can.
