"I was always in awe of 70s and 80s images on film posters, particularly by Drew Struzan. Computer and video game artwork such as the early Atari game covers influenced me too. I used to copy them as closely as possible as a child to build my skills and fire up my imagination."
Hahnemüle German Etching is a robust Giclée paper, meaning it doesn’t tend to fray as much at the edges. This heavyweight (310gsm) paper has a slightly warm base tone and a strong mottled texture. It creates a print with strong colours and deep blacks that feel rich and high in contrast. This is due to the texture of the paper enabling it to hold more ink and capture the light. The German Etching is one of our heavier weight Giclée art printing papers. With its weight and strong texture this paper gives an artwork a handmade crafted feel.
