Upon much personal debate, I have made the decision that I will offer my original ballpoint drawings for sale. However, there are some stipulations when purchasing any of these originals.
For the most part, ink in ballpoint pens is not archival. If one of my original ballpoint drawings was exposed to certain lights, mainly sunlight, for too long of a period, the ink would begin to fade. No one wants to buy a piece of art, hang it on the wall, and then eventually find that artwork has disappeared!
Therefore, these original artworks should only be purchased by serious collectors that have the means of properly storing the artwork away from the elements. With the purchase of an original, I will also include a museum-quality print with archival ink on cotton rag paper in the same size as the original artwork. This print can then be displayed without fear of fading.
I have started to list these pieces in my store, but I have many more to put up. I hope to have all of them listed in the store within the next few days.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog post. Have a great and artful day!
