Hand Drawn’ Prints; Reclaimed Wood Frames

Monday, October 14th, 2013

Our ‘Hand Drawn Quotes’ are a mix­ture of hand-drawn illus­tra­tion art & word art. There’s six prints in the collection.

  • Ima­gin­a­tion — ‘ima­gin­a­tion is more import­ant than knowledge
  • Rock n Roll — ‘it’s only rock ‘n’ roll but i like it’
  • Dan­ger­ous — ‘mad, bad, and dan­ger­ous to know’
  • Time­keep­ing — ‘bet­ter late than never but never late is better’
  • Fash­ions Fade — ‘fash­ions fade, style is eternal’
  • Pro­nun­ci­ation — ‘you say tom-ay-to i say tom-ar-to’

Each ‘Hand Drawn Quotes’ print meas­ures 25cm x 25cm. The art­work is prin­ted onto hand-painted tex­tured hard­board. The frame is hand­made in Bri­tain using reclaimed roof tim­bers that we’ve salvaged from demol­ished Vic­torian factor­ies. We retain any defects in the wood to add to the charm & char­ac­ter of the print. These can include knot holes, nail holes, warps, & water marks. This means that your frame will be totally unique.

Trees That Have Been Recycled on Recycled

Monday, August 13th, 2012

Recycled on recycled? What on earth are we talk­ing about?

Well we’ve recycled some of our art­work. This time we took the trees from our per­en­nial favour­ite reclaimed wood prints & recycled the image to cre­ate a paper print on 100% recycled paper. See? Recycled on recycled.

And we’ve gone a little hand-stamping crazy here at Coulson Macleod HQ. The back­ground blocks are indi­vidu­ally stamped by hand then scanned & col­oured digit­ally. The tree illus­tra­tion is then laid on top. And we think it looks great.

Intro­du­cing our brand new (but recycled) ‘Winter Trees’…

The chair images are hand-drawn by ourselves (that’s Coulson Macleod) before being turned into rub­ber stamps. Each indi­vidual chair is then hand-stamped before being digit­ised and coloured.
