The 'Butterfly' Collection
These four striking designs entitled ‘Youth', ‘Love’, ‘Loss’ and ‘Death’ mark Rob's first full collection of limited edition prints.
Inspired by Giacomo Puccini’s beguiling opera, the artworks pay an artist homage to both Puccini’s masterpiece and the Japanese tradition of Ukiyo-e woodblock prints. Rob comments, “Releasing a series of prints has always been a career ambition of mine. These are the most pure expression of the work I have been creating over the past decade. Work which continually seeks to raise the bar of both digital draftsmanship and production techniques."

All of Rob’s designs are digitally hand-drawn using a graphics tablet and pen. Once complete, the medium preserves the artworks in an endlessly editable state. Compositions are therefore unable to degrade and instead remain infinitely customisable in terms of application, colour and scale. This collection also features one of the first artistic uses of Impress’ digital gold ink. Rob continues,

"Metallics have always been the Achilles heel of digital printing. As a purely digital studio, I have resisted the temptation of having my designs traditionally printed and instead scoured the Country for a genuine digital equivalent. Impress share my passion for precision printing and I am truly delighted with the quality of finish they have brought to my designs.”

Each individual print is framed in black polycore, set behind glass with a board backing and soft white mount. The design is printed on FSC acid free paper, using Impress Digital Gold ink. These designs together with a selection from Rob's pattern archive are available to buy as limited edition prints via the Online Print Shop.
