I've added a new section called
When I create a new piece
Don't forget to click on the BLUE WORDS anywhere on this site to enter
For your convenience, I have taken the liberty of separating my offerings into several categories: woodcuts (or woodblock prints), drawings (in this case, pen and ink), and paintings (primarily watercolors, but maybe some acrylic paintings as well). Choose wisely, or choose foolishly. What have you got to lose? It's free. But do choose.
Please don't skip this part - it's a legal thing, and I know how you feel about lawyers (my little brother is one, but mom and dad are still proud of him. Ah, the peculiar beauty of familial affection!). Uncle Bill doesn't want to have to do this, but you can 't always want what you have to do. It is important!
IMPORTANT NOTE: All images are copy written by B. de Corbin and/or Splendid Fish Studio. B. de Corbin and Splendid Fish Studio give you express permission to use the art within this site for your own, personal, non-commercial purposes, provided the copy write notice is displayed with the artwork. If you use one or more of these pieces on a web page, you must include a link to the home page of this site. You may not use the art, or any part of any piece of art from these pages, to create any product which will be sold, or used to promote or advertise any product or service involving payment or barter.
If in doubt as to where your intended use falls within this description, please contact me for clarification. Acquiring any of this art in any way indicates your agreement with these terms.
Artists take note. This is a good way of reproducing your art. It does not require much in the way of special equipment - only time and effort. The only drawback - and this is also the beauty of the media - is that it is difficult to create extremely detailed prints. Artists working with woodcuts generally like to deal with blocks of color which stand out against the white of the paper. See The Early Bird and The Worm for an example of the use of blocks of color, although if you note the Gothic Dragons you will see that detail is, indeed, possible.
You may, of course, print these any way you like, but I would recommend that you use a white paper with what is referred to as a "laid" texture. This will do two things.
The white paper is important because most of the printing paper I use is off-white or light tan, and this color shows up in the scan. Any color other than white will affect the background color. Paper such as I describe is easily found at the store as fancy resume paper.
In the description below each thumbnail I will indicate the original size of the artwork and whether to set your printer for "landscape" or "portrait." Click on each image to go to the full sized printable art. I suggest that you copy any art that you wish to print to your hard drive, import it into a page layout program such as Microsoft Word and print from there. That way you can adjust the size to meet your own needs.
