Giclee print of 'Vampyre'. This is a print of a traditional Celtic art piece. Original is hand-drafted using traditional pen and ink, and ink color washes.
A highly unusual piece of traditional Celtic art - on a non-traditional topic! Marcel has used the techniques of traditional Celtic illumination to illustrate this creepy, almost tomb-stone image. Note the fangs on the skull, and the Celtic zoomorphs of wolves and rats!
The text is of excerpts from Braham Stoker's 'Dracula' and from other reading on this topic. The color scheme is non-traditional, geared to the topic.
Final print will not have water marks! It will be a signed and numbered Giclee print, suitable for framing.
Marcel works on these Celtic pieces with a single minded devotion to his process and his subject matter. He uses tiny drawing pends, lays out his material and works those tiny little details by hand. Once the piece is complete, it is scanned in order to make prints. The original took him over 40 hours!
Giclee print is done using the highest quality archival ink and paper. Designed to resist fading and to last a lifetime. Print will arrive rolled, in a sturdy mailing tube. Once it arrives, a couple of days laying on a flat surface will restore the paper to flat and remove any curl. This is the safest possible way to ship art.
Print paper is 8.5"x11" (21.59 x 27.94 centimeters), actual image is 7.75 x 10.25" (19.685 x 26.035 centimeters). Suitable for a frame 11x14" with a mat.
These are signed and numbered prints. In a run of 500, I am currently shipping in the 20's.

Shipping overseas can be delayed due to significant lay over time in customs. Some countries move things right along, others may delay your package by as much as a few weeks. Please plan ahead if you are purchasing a gift or need jewelry for a special occasion.
Gift Wrapping: If you need an item gift wrapped, please send me a convo. We are happy to do this for you, but would advise a sturdier mailer, such as a box, in order to protect the wrapping and bow in the mail. We can quote you a rate for this alternate mailer and gift wrap once we know where the item is going.
If you would like insurance for any purchase, please send us a note. We can quickly create a custom listing for you that includes this alternate shipping option.
Special Note about Liquids: Our syrups and essential oils are in glass containers.
We know this adds weight to the purchase, but we use glass due to the increased level of safety and health concerns with plastic. We don't like to eat food stored in plastic, so we don't expect you to either. We will keep shipping as affordable as we can, but we know it is expensive. Occasionally the calculated shipping charges too much for shipping syrups, and in that case we will refund any overage charged at the time of shipping.
