This is a wonderful print version of the Ghost plot. It was plotted onto a reMarkable 2 eInk tablet using an AxiDraw pen plotter. So, like my other plots, this was physically created, but in this case, the pen was a stylus and the ink is eInk. Plotting it this way means it retains all the aberrations and character of a traditional plot but captured in digital form.
The reMarkable tablet was set to simulate a calligraphy pen, giving the lines a variable thickness that you don't normally get when pen plotting or using simple vectors in a graphics package set to a single width.
The resulting digital plot was processed using True Grit Texture Supply's "Atomica" photoshop actions, designed to reproduce the analogue imperfections of mid-century printing. And printed by top print shop The Print Space onto beautiful Hahnemühle German Etching paper.
After much searching and test prints, these are the best printers I have found. Your print will be shipped directly from their one of their print shops, either in the UK or outside, depending on where you are.
As this is my first print this "Series I" is a limited edition of just 10 A3 prints, just to see how it goes.

The ink used in this work is archival-ink, light-fast and fade-resistant, the paper is acid-free and also fade-resistant. That said, it's still probably wise to frame it and hang it somewhere out of direct sunlight.
Pen plots are unlike traditional prints; each one is subtly different due to the interaction between the pens used, ink and paper.
To further complicate/improve things, with traditional printing "Limited Editions" are identical prints, designed to be as close to the original as possible. However, with generative art, each plot is unique due to randomness in the algorithm.
"Open Edition/Series" means there is no limit to the number that will be produced, but each one will still be unique and different.
"Limited Edition" refers to a limited number of plots within a series and/or colourways and size, and again each one will be different.
"Static" is used when each plot in a series will be the same without any randomness, this is normally found in the "Sacred Geometry", but I haven't posted any yet.

Returns & Damage
Sometimes, rarely, there's a chance the postal service will chew up and mangle your plot 😱 If this happens please send me a photo and we'll figure out a refund (less the shipping) or a replacement.
Please note: As each pen plot is unique (unless otherwise stated) the replacement will be the "same" but in its own slightly different way.
If you're unhappy with your plot and we can't work something out, then please destroy it in the most entertaining and interesting way possible within 14 days, send me photo proof, and I'll refund the cost excluding shipping.
