After a decade of making screenprints of Oor Wullie and The Broons, John Patrick Reynolds‘ licence from publisher DC Thomson ends in June – so the clock is ticking to grab the last of these limited edition artworks.
So … everything must go!
This is the last chance to buy screenprints and cards which have graced the grand museums of Scotland (including The National Galleries of Scotland, the V&A and the McManus in Dundee) as well as private galleries and print shops across the country.
Based in London, John was the first screenprinter to get permission from DC Thomson, to use images from its archive of British comic characters from The Beano’s Dennis the Menace, The Bash Street Kids and Minnie the Minx to The Dandy’s Desperate Dan and the Sunday Post’s Oor Wullie and The Broons.
He’s also the only screenprinter in the UK to work with French publisher Editions Albert Réné to make screenprints of its characters Asterix, Obelix, Getafix and Ideefix, not forgetting the dog Dogmatix.
“Most images are currently available but this won’t be the case for long,” says John, “so if there’s a screenprint you’ve had your eye on, now’s your chance!”
