Forty Winks is a family run business set up by husband and wife duo, Gleb and Naomi.
The beautiful simplistic prints designed by Gleb, were inspired by their two daughters when Naomi was looking for nice personalised art for their nursery.
Gleb is a graphic designer and children's book author /illustrator and Naomi, is a professional makeup artist and hair stylist ( but also artist and illustrator). Gleb in the past has published children's books including the ever popular Moon Dreams, published by Templar in 2012.
Naomi, helps run Forty Winks and is working on some of her own wonderful illustrations, which she hopes to include to the mix in the near future.
ABOUT THE PRINTS
These retro graphic animal prints use the same technique across all the animals, meaning the prints work beautifully along side one another on a wall. They can also be personalised with a name or date, so every member of the family can have one. Shop via our Etsy shop for personalisations. If you wish to have a limited edition signed print however, please head over to our Artfinder shop.
These prints will bring warmth and fun to any room. Bold colours and simple shapes appeal to young children, while adults can appreciate the graphic composition and minimalist design. Each image is deliberately stylised by offsetting the printing plates and applying textures in order to achieve an authentic retro look.
The print is available in two sizes.
A4: 29.7 x 21 cm = 11.7 x 8.3 in
A3: 42 x 29.7 cm = 16.5 x 11.7 in
PLEASE NOTE: these are actual image sizes. The paper is cut slightly larger to allow for flexibility when fitting to frames and matting boards.
1.5 cm boarder surrounds the A4 image, making the paper size = 33 x 24 cm.
1.5 cm boarder surrounds the A3 image, making the paper size = 45 x 33 cm.
Each print is made using pigment inks on 200 gsm archival paper. The matt finish produces beautiful depth of colour and detail that should not fade for a lifetime. The colours you see on your screen may differ slightly from the actual print due to various monitor calibrations. However every effort is made to print beautiful and vivid images for your enjoyment every time!
To ensure your print arrives in immaculate condition, the prints will be shipped in a cardboard art tube. With UK postage we aim to post every item as Signed For Delivery, and depending on tracking capabilities abroad we do always try to track/sign for international postings.
Gleb and Naomi are available for commissioned work and always on the look out for new and exciting projects. Thank you for stopping by and supporting our small business.
