Prints With Jamie Jones Illustrations

We moved into our current house in April last year and the front room was decorated to what I can only describe at 90’s floral. It was quite bold and head ache inducing, so we decided to paint all the walls white and give the room a fresher feel. Although it now looked much cleaner, the walls were bare and quite boring!

We decided to look for some prints, we were looking for black and white prints as we wanted to keep the room looking sharp. Another thing we decided on was that we were going to support independent artists who sell prints of their own work. I think sometimes we all tend to buy cheaper prints from large retail outlets and forget about the artists that put the time and effort into their creations.


I was very kindly sent some prints from Jamie Jones Illustrations, he has a nice range of prints which include 6 pieces from his final A-Level collection. He sent me 2 prints from his collection, Kos Harbour with Yachts and Orange Botanical (Citrus reticulata). The great thing about the prints on Jamie’s store, is that they available in various card stock, so you can choose what stock fits with the room you are looking at buying prints for. Not only that they are also really affordable, probably cheaper than buying something mass printed.

I love the prints as they take me back to when I completed my A-Levels, whilst the rest of my class were using media like oil paint/pastels I always opted for a set of fine liners and a good old biro. The detail you can achieve with this media is stunning, you can create clean lines and great shading using dot work by stippling.


It might sound crazy but we are now possibly moving again, I will definitely have Jamie Jones Illustrations in mind when we are looking to get hold of some more prints. You can get your hands on Jamie’s prints and check out his other works on his Etsy Store, you can also use the code DANB20 to get 20% off your order.
