The DM Collection is a line of products available for sale by award winning watercolour artist and illustrator Daniel Mackie.
Daniel won "Best in Book" in the Creative Review Ilustration Annual 2011.
This collection of art cards and prints started out live with the lose theme, "animals in their natural habitat". As you can see, the creatures environment ended up inside the animal. Daniel took his inspiration from an unlikely source, navy tattoos! In order for the paintings to work with so much detail, the shape of the animal was key in the design, it had to be instantly recognisable as the creature it represented, here Daniel took his cue from Art Deco, keeping the shape of the animal as simple as possible. Daniel is a big fan of the printmakers of the Ukiyo-e period which was between the 17th and the 20th centuries. This has very much influenced the interior of the designs.
The cards are all supplied in cello bags with envelopes and are blank inside.
Daniel's oringal screen prints are for sale on this shop, they like his watercolour paintings follow a similar theme. once all the limited prints are sold there will be no more available.
The DM Collection has a growing number of stockists in the UK, from Shetland in Scotland to Brighton on the south coast. If you would like to stock The DM Collection Get in touch +44(0)7808923371 or email Daniel.
