‘Les bons comptes font les bons amis’
pen & Photoshop - (2009)

The title meaning is the French equivalent of “Short reckonings make long friends“. 

The illustration is made in the style of famous artist ‘Cassandre’ (1901-1968);  the idea behind it was to use the playing cards mirroring principle to show the endless virtuous circle brought from keeping square all monies with our comrades.

I added a dollop of light insolence making those money handling characters red faced, posh clothed and long teethed.

Product details: Paper: Archival Watercolour 220gsm (Somerset Enhanced Velvet 255gsm available +£5).
Ink: A3 Fine Art Giclée: premium quality archival inkjet prints, produced at the highest resolution for photographic and fine art reproduction.

About size and framing: For these type of illustrations I advise taking taking the biggest size and frame it inside a frame one “A” bigger (if you buy a A3 for example, putting it in a A2 frame) with a white paper underneath - creating a neat white border.
