Limited Edition Prints--Step One

This is a new adventure for me. As an artist, I've only ever sold my original work. For the Ducati painting, I decided it was time to reseach the world of fine art printing. After countless phone calls and several meetings, we found Ditto Editions.

Ditto Editions uses some highly impressive scanning devices/printers/inks to accurately capture and reproduce original works of art. It's the closest you can get to an original painting. But it won't take them 2 years and 300 hours to reproduce.

The first step in the process is to digitally capture the artwork. This photo was taken in their studio, while they set up proper lights and equipment to capture the painting.

The next step will be the proofing and printing process...stay tuned!
