Arthur Ranson

Limited Edition CMYK Screen Prints Now Available

It’s given me great personal pleasure to have recently collaborated with my father, Illustrator Arthur Ranson, on a series of screen prints featuring two characters from his work with 2000AD Comics, Judge Anderson and Buttonman. Each edition has been carefully produced in close collaboration and consultation with my father, selecting his favourite drawings, and overseeing the production. Original drawings were scanned and taken into the digital process in order to create the four colour separation process needed to make the final prints. Each print is printed to gallery standards using high quality Screentec Aqua Colour acrylic ink, on 310gsm archival paper. Each print is signed and numbered by Arthur.

Arthur first started drawing for 2000AD in July of 1989, and continued working regularly for the publication through to the mid nineties. Subsequent graphic novel compendiums of the stories he illustrated were, and have been published regularly since, through the 2000’s to present.

It has now been announced that Buttonman will now be made into a feature length movie by Director Brian Helgeland. Helgeland will direct Button Man for Netflix. Variety Magazine now reports that Helgeland has signed on to direct Button Man, which was previously known as Button Man: The Killing Game and is an adaptation the John Wagner and Arthur‘s graphic novel.

In addition to his Oscar win for writing L.A. Confidential, Helgeland wrote A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master, Conspiracy Theory, Mystic River, and Man on Fire. He also wrote and directed Payback, A Knight’s Tale, The Order, and 42, and his most recent movie was 2015’s Legend, the gangster film in which Tom Hardy played twin brothers. As you can see, he has plenty of experience telling gritty, morally murky stories, so this one seems like a nice fit.

So this is really an ideal opportunity to purchase something very special and exclusive, of gallery quality, and that has been made in close collaboration with Arthur, and printed by myself… Arthur’s son.
