A Page of Penguins

I’d like your opinion, please.

For the last couple of months in between other things, I’ve been working away on the largest scratchboard drawing I’ve made yet: a page of penguins.

I’m rather chuffed with how they look, and though I hadn’t really planned on doing anything with the finished piece, a few people have suggested that it would make a nice poster and I rather agree. So I’ve been looking into the costs of a print run.

As is so often the case, the unit price of anything printed drops significantly the more you order, but this isn’t a real saving if I end up with a pile of penguins stuffedย under my bed for the next few years. It’s a balancing act of knowing that it’s a product enough people might want, at the same time as being able to offer a reasonable price. I’m trying to be pragmatic – and honest – about the challenges of putting artwork out in the world, and what the difference is between an image that people like and a viable product.

So I’d love to know, is a penguin poster is something you’d actually be interested in?

It might be that this is just a page of penguins that I’ve enjoyed drawing and people enjoy looking at online: that would be OK!ย But if it is something you think you might like to buy – with no obligation – please let me know, because I would like to try and make it available.

And if it is something you’d like, what would you consider a reasonable price? It’s 50 x 60cm, if that helps. Again, no obligation. I’m just wondering where’s the price point that would make you say “yes, definitely!” and the one that would make you decideย “hmm, no that’s too much…”

I will be SO grateful to hear what you think. Thank you :)
