The Small Batch – Coming Friday
What is the Small Batch?
The “Small Batch” is a new series from “The Art of Fire” with the intention of releasing something new every week or two. The goal is to explore new techniques and new looks, while maintaining the bold artistic style “The Art of Fire” has established as its own. The first print from “The Small Batch” will go on sale this Friday.
Why is it called the Small Batch?
Well I am glad you asked. There are two reasons.
- Prints will be sold 5″x7″ inside an 8″x10″ matte.
- More importantly…… prints will be sold as Extreme Limited Editions or in “Small Batches”.
Most limited edition prints range somewhere between 50-2000 prints. Each print in “The Art of Fire – Small Batch” will be released with only 10 signed and numbered prints available, along with a few Artist Proofs (A/P)*. What exactly does this mean? Prints from the “Small Batch” will be rare.
I will also be accepting your photos for consideration as part of “The Small Batch” If I choose to use one of your photos you must agree to allow me to sell prints of the art I create from your photo. In return you will receive one of the Artist Proofs. Artist Proof’s are considered more valuable in a limited edition series.
* Artist Proof (A/P) – The test prints used to determine that color and quality is up to the artists standard before the rest of the series is printed. The term Artist Proof comes from the artist visually inspecting and approving the prints. I typically keep 3 Artist Proofs once I am happy with the prints. One to give away, one to sell, one to keep for a rainy day.
