 Limited Edition Fine Art Giclee Print: a high quality image of the original artwork is printed onto an acid free, slightly textured 310gsm alpha/cotton mix paper using archival inks. The paper is a museum heritage heavyweight watercolor paper, 310gsm [the weight being grams per square metre]. Both the paper and inks used are archival, ensuring print quality. When looked after there should not be any fading/degradation on the prints for 70+ years.


The original drawing is made up entirely, 100%, of pen ink dots. The drawing took a total of 107 hours to complete. Based on 2 dots per second the drawing is made up of approximately 770,000 ink dots. 


The drawing is taken from a photograph that I took of a sleeping swan at Abbotsbury Swannery in Dorset, UK. The swannery is spread over a site of some 25 acres and was established by Benedictine Monks who built a monastery at Abbotsbury during the 1040s. The monks farmed the swans to produce food for their lavish Dorset banquets.

The swan burying itself in its wing serves as a visual metaphor for the desire to not wanting to be a  part of the madness we appear to often be involuntarily engulfed within, often by the 'system' and by those that have/seek power. Stop the World. 

The title is also inspired by the song 'Stop the World' by The Clash.
