This is a fantastic opportunity to buy “Sleepyhead” – a highly collectable print of a polar bear drawing. Printed on superb Fabriano 5 art paper, signed by world famous artist Gary Hodges (www.garyhodges-wildlife-art.com) and limited to 995 copies, it was published in 1999 and completely sold out many years ago. “Sleepyhead” has sold many times on the secondary market for very high prices. This print has been made unique and all the more valuable with the addition of the signatures of actresses Rula Lenska and Lynda Bellingham.
Gary Hodges is the UK’s best selling and most collectable pencil artist. He has sold over 106,000 personally signed and numbered prints from 124 limited editions. Incredibly 113 of these editions have sold out; very few artists working in any medium can make this claim. The remaining eleven editions are available to buy from his website shop.
Over the years the huge demand for Gary’s prints have led to a lucrative secondary market rewarding collectors with more than just the sheer beauty of his drawings. Greenpeace published his very first print in 1987 and the 850 edition then sold for £8.50 each. In recent years that same print “Green Turtle”, has changed hands for up to an incredible £3,500.00 - an investment increase of more than 400 times!
Dimensions of print Paper size…497mm x 468mm.
Image size…420mm x 363mm.
Sleepyhead has been donated by the artist to Animals Asia to help them with their fantastic work for animals.
