Sky City Express is a drawing of a rail line clinging to treacherous cliffs and soaring over tall bridges as it makes its way up to a city on a high tor. A cat on the edge of a cliff watches a train steam slowly past. I have loved trains for as long as I can remember, so I enjoyed trying to work one into to a cat-themed fantasy image.
The original drawing is done in Prismacolor colored pencils on 2-ply Bristol vellum.
Each Sky City Express print is hand signed and hand numbered out of a total run of 50. Once they are sold out, no more will be run. This is not a print I send out much anymore so if you want one it would be best to order it direct from me.
The print comes mounted in a 11″ x 14″ archival mat with backing board. All of my prints are matted to standard frame sizes for ease of framing.
I cut my own mats. The mat colors may vary depending on what I have in stock but I always pick something that compliments the artwork. If you place an order and would like a specific mat color, send me a note and I will try to accommodate you. For Sky City Express I usually use a double mat, with an inner border color and a different outer color. Sometimes I use the same color for both the inner and outer mats. This creates a different but equally appealing look. The print itself is about 9″ x 7″, which leaves an approximate 2″ border on the sides and 2.5″ on the top and bottom.
Prints are protected by a clear plastic archival bag that guards against moisture and minor scratches. I recommend leaving the print inside the bag until it is transferred to a frame.
