Prints!

Postby Reinder on Wed Apr 10, 2002 9:44 am

Today, I've been working on a print of the ROCR strip for May 2, 2002 for a group exhibit by regional artists from the northern Netherlands. The quality of the digital color prints I'm using is pretty good - 450 DPI, consistent, even tones. I was wondering if some of you would want one of those prints...
The May 2 strip is a captioned-format strip, so I include the captions in two columns below the strip itself. This is much closer to what I had in mind for the captioned strips than what you see on the website - but unlike what it had in mind, it's in color, and printed at the original size! It's really cool.

What I have in mind is to print up to 100 of them, sign and number them and sell them for $10 each - steep, but the profit would go to keeping me fed and in good hardware, so it would be a good alternative to donations.

Once again, your input is sought!

I'm definitely interested!
Who's in the strip? Will we get a preview?

Kel's in the May 2 strip, in an outfit from the 1001 Spring collection.

I've also done one for the May 4 strip, with Kel, Fay and Sanderon.

The May 3 strip will be... unusual. I might do a set of that one too, though.

As for previews, I can do one easily, but I have to do it in a way that doesn't actually spoils the strip in question.

...although I could of course do a print of an already-published strip. Every strip created after November has high-res scans, although only the past few weeks' worth have been colored at a suitable resolution (600 dpi - the prints will be 450)

Well.... Here are some previews. I apologise for the large files, but part of the point of the previews is to show off the quality.

This scaled image shows how the print will look although it will probably end up with wider margins. I've changed the text so as not to spoil anything.

This is a 1:1 detail of the print showing the high resolution.

OOOOO Really sweet looking!
I'd want one. What pricing would it be?

I'm thinking 10 bucks each, signed and numbered, plus a nominal amount for shipping and handling.
