With Mads Mikkelsen and my officially licensed Hannibal Art
After 20 years of muraling and illustrating I've started selling art prints and posters from my own prompts. It's a scary step but something I've always wanted to do. Pine Cone Print Co is my place to do it.
From my log cabin in Cheshire (bats above, pine cones below) I work with pencil, ink, scanned watercolour textures and digital tablet, to create the kind of products I'd like to buy myself. I spend weeks getting the designs right, use luxuriously heavyweight cotton paper and archival pigment inks to create museum quality giclée art prints up to A2 size.
In my career as an artist I've produced work for: Handmade Films (Withnail & I), Chiswick Productions (Hannibal), ITV Studios (Thunderbirds), Frederick Warne & Co (Beatrix Potter/Peter Rabbit), Penguin Books (Ladybird Children's Books), Aardman Animation (Wallace and Gromit and Shaun The Sheep), Royal Historical Palaces (Hampton Court), The Royal Mint, Shakespeare's Globe, The Liverpool Empire Theatre

Epson UltraChrome PRO10 ink together with the latest printhead technology offers stunning results, quick-drying to help prevent smudging and ensure a clear, precise outcome. Combined with the Epson Micro Piezo printheads, which eject droplets of ink via mechanical pressure rather than heat so that each drop of ink is more precise for sharper, richer images.
Epson UltraChrome ink is a high-quality pigment ink featuring a wide color gamut for vibrant colour, it can produce archival prints with amazing fidelity, gloss level, and scratch resistance, while providing consistently stable colours that significantly outperform lesser ink technologies. This breakthrough pigment ink technology gives higher density levels and virtually no metamerism.
I use recycled, recyclable & eco friendly/compostable packaging.
