A large format book (30 x 42 cm) reproducing one hundred never-before-seen drawings at their original size! Printed on a deluxe Fedrigoni 170g paper.
This is one of the first 1000 copies with an exclusive print, signed by Ashley himself.
A word from the artist:
This 30 x 42 cm book was a chance to share my drawings, ink drawings, (primarily in black ink, hence the name AWD XL BLACK). The drawings are printed at 1:1 scale or as close to their original scale as possible. There are a few examples that bust this codex, but I felt it made for a more interesting book.
Hopefully some of the nuances and details are clearer at this larger size. The drawings are presented in the state they were scanned, this was done to show victories and failures without the use of a computer to clean and fix.
I'm a firm believer that the art should deliver the message to the viewer, the relationship between the image and the audience is paramount. I won't write much more, for I have no need to write a testimony or put up any kind of defense. Please enjoy spending some time in my world, a world you get to experience much closer than before when the art is presented in its original state and size.
I enjoy drawing this stuff, I hope you enjoy looking!
