Enhancing Old Art
There’s nothing wrong with returning to your older artwork and attempting to improve it, right? Sometimes old artwork just needs a little tweak or a few small changes to make it significantly better or more consistent.
I decided to amend and update my previous frog girl illustration to give it a Sugar Skull twist. I also limited the colour palette with some tonal adjustments. It matches some of the other, recent artwork in my gallery a little better. Plus people have told me they’re liking my skull related artwork, so now here’s another to add to the collection!
Maybe one day I’ll figure out how to match this stuff up with the all the various manga styles I like playing with also? Producing a consistent gallery or range of images is always going to be a challenge when you love producing so many different types of art styles.
A3 size prints are now available of this one to buy via the site’s Shop. I decided to give the option to purchase this new version along with the original no-make-up version plus the marker version I’d create a while back. Do you have a preference?

New Product Updates in the Shop:
Many of the large / A3 prints in the Shop have now been amended to include Matt, Gloss and a Special Metallic paper finishes. Although the print company I just started using for these is currently closed due to the pandemic lock-down, so frog girl will temporarily remain as Gloss only for the time being. I’ll take some photos of the new metallic prints in due course. For now, you’ll have to take my word for it but they look fantastic! And managed to put a smile on my face 🙂
There’s something really cool about an physical piece of art be it a print or original. You just can’t get it looking at it on a screen. Especially these metallic prints which have light bouncing off them as I move them in my hands.
At the time of posting, prices for most of the A3 prints are:
£11.99 for Matt: Satin smooth paper avoids reflections
£12.99 for Gloss: Deep colours with a sheen
£16.99 for Metallic: Special finish for spectacular effect when in the light
Shipping here in the UK is: £3.40 per print. Europe: £5. USA and rest of the world is: £8.
For a limited time I’m running the promo code 10OFFPRINTS at the checkout stage. It allows 10% off when spending over £30 on art print orders.
