‘The Beach’ by Paul Octavious

Lately I’ve been having this hang up with prints. I understand it’s an easier way for artists, and by artists I mean illustrators and designers, to present their work. But at the same time it’s starting to feel like more crap. I’ve started comparing prints to screen printed t-shirts, which in my mind no one needs anymore of. That said, I can’t say that this ridiculous rule I’ve created for myself holds true to photographers, because, how else would they show their work other than a print?

So I thought I’d share this wonderful image created by Paul Octavious called The Beach which is the quintessential idea of what summer looks like (to me). The photo is available through Wallblank who are charging $30 for a 12″ x 12″ or $70 for a 20″ x 20″. I’m seriously smitten with this print so I’m thinking about diving into the 20″ end of the pool.

    It not only capture the look of summer, but also the feeling. That sweet sweet heat.

    that’s the first time i’ve thought about it like that… but i think you’re right in that with artists as apposed to photographers… there’s nothing like the magic of an original.

    thea.
