Bright Lights Big City

€89,00 €159,00


While doodling it struck me that the main character in the illustration, the guy in the middle with the helmet on, is like many people on the streets in a big city. While travelling to and from work or home, with all the bright lights and distractions, they are all living (birds house) in their heads.

Alone with their thoughts. Not feeling. Not really present. Blocking and protecting (the helmet) themselves from influences outside their person. With only a few sensors (the security cameras) active. This concept turned out with enough 'hooks' to come up with all sorts of funny and strange extra elements.

Extraordinary luxury paper with special inks

I wanted my illustrations shown on the absolute best paper available and printed with the most optimal inks. Bright, stunning colours and extreme details on heavy luxury paper. Searching for these materials and specifications brought me to the world of printing reproductions of art and photography.

That's why the limited edition illustration art prints are printed on Hahnemühle Photorag® 308 grs heavy luxury paper, with UltraChome HDX ink. Read more about the luxury materials I used on the Ink and Paper page.
