Continuing to work on the Sea Life Series - the 7th shell of the group (11th print of the folio). Cryptospira Elegans - Print Number 311. Available on our www.boloker.com store . . . . . and coming in 2023 to shows and stores. As always, the shells are available in 36 x 24 inch full sized limited edition prints as well as smaller sizes (18 x 24 and 11 x 14 matted).
People often ask how much of my work is traditionally hand drawn vs. digital work. To the right is the print as drawn by hand (as opposed to the final print above) before scanning. The shell prints tend to involve more digital work. This digital work (via Photoshop) allows for more color variation as well as techniques to bring different elements of the shell forward and backwards. The lei prints also involve some digital work, but not nearly to the same degree as the shells.
