Inkvent Originals / 2021 / Alan Watts / Christmas Day / PRINT
These original, one-off pieces of art were created on a daily basis from my Inkvent Calendar in December 2021, a countdown to Christmas containing 25 newly-created coloured inks found behind every window.
Working with British ink company Diamine, the calendar was the first of its kind anywhere in the world, first launched in September 2019.
Throughout each day of December, I drew one of mine and Leigh's favourite quotes rendered in that day's ink.
**Please note this piece comprises two separate pieces of artwork: an A1-sized 'Wowee!' and an A3 piece.**
Done in one take, on the same paper, in whatever lettering I fancied, these quotes are from our collection of things said by people we know, friends, colleagues; people we admire, and which we use every day, like almost like mantras or a code of conduct whenever we find ourselves stuck, going down a rabbit hole or confused.
Their creation was captured on time-lapse which you can see here on my website,, and each one is signed and dated, on A3 sized 300gsm cartridge paper, 297mm x 420mm.
Both the original and prints come hand-embossed with the Inkymole seal of authenticity, in a clear presentation sleeve with instructions on how to look after your new art.
