We first came across Ray Richardson in 2014 when our good friend and artist Benjamin Murphy asked him to take part first ever secret auction. We got two charming little staffs (pictured right) back in the post. When Art Car Boot Fair (ACB) announced the theme for 2015 was The Dog, Ray was the first person we thought of. Ray even accompanied us at both Brick Lane and Margate ABCs to paint his beloved dog Brian live. One of the postcards Ray produced for Art Car Boot Fair was Happy Bri which has been such a massively popular card and our best seller limited edition of 2015.
Ray has become a great friend and huge supporter of Art on a Postcard. He donated a number of cards to us last year for both our secret auction and to our Moniker stand. One of his images we've reproduced on a tote bag which is, again, our best selling tote.
Especially for our Jealous portfolio we have produced an A3 version of Happy Bri which we've had enquiries about already. The show opens tomorrow and the prints will go on sale.
