The Working Proof

(日本語は下にあります)
The Working Proof, an online artist print store that donates 15% of all sales to a number of charities contacted us a while ago about selling Overture prints through them.
We were happy to!
But at the time they were only selling prints that the artists made themselves. Since we didn't have any prints of our works we had to wait - until now! Recently, The Working Proof has been producing prints for some artists as well (Anna Corpron and Sean Auyeung, the founders, are Printmakers) and one of our illustrations was just released for sale today!
The piece is from the MoonHare series we created in 2010 and traveled to Japan with during the Oneiric Caravan tour with the record label flau. We also showed the series at the Peskeomskut Noisecapades Inaugural in 2011 and some of the illustrations traveled to la Gaîté Lyrique in Paris and Berlin in Pictoplasma's Post Digital Monsters group show this past winter.
None of the illustrations from the MoonHare series have been made a print yet, so this is the first opportunity to get a copy of a part of it - at a reasonable price!
And just in time for Ludic Chase, which we will release online later this summer!
In this scene from the MoonHare series, Hobomuck the giant has pinned the ears of the young MoonHare to the full moon where its power spills down into his tail.
Aside from some planning, the general shape and idea of where in the story the illustration would fit, this piece, like most of Overture illustration work, was improvised.

This is a digital print and available in three sizes: 8"x10" (edition of 50, $35), 11"x14" (edition of 50, $60), 16"x20" (edition of 25 mounted on bamboo panel, $595)

From the charities The Working Proof works with we chose 826 National. They are great! We visited their LA location last fall and will take a look at their Boston chapter very soon!

Anna Corpron from The Working Proof did a short interview with us which is also available up on their site. It is brief and we offer some more in depth answers to the story behind the MoonHare, some of our recent interests, artists we like, etc.

Oh, and if you are interested in the print but can't afford it right now or want someone else to buy it for you, The Working Proof even makes it possible to add it to your Amazon Wishlist right on the print's listing page!
