Art needs to sit proudly on your wall, and when can’t bash huge nails in you need to consider the mounted print. Super tough, super light, incredibly professional.
Art comes in many shapes and sizes, and our mounted prints are built to fit each of them. The final dimensions will depend on the image you choose, but to give you an idea here are the most common photographic sizes:
Ink and blood on paper. This is the background for a short animation I made in 2006 called Boy Drowning.
empty, ink, stage, vignette
Paul Compton’s artworks take the form of drawings, prints, handmade books and zines. His work displays an ongoing interest in vignettes, animism, outsiders, literature, the occult and the Victorian era.
beautiful!…what kind of blood?
up the garden path…….
Indeed. I love stage sets and Victorian photographs so I tried to mix the two styles together. Thank you so much for the support ENaLu.

So beautiful, & so strangely inviting, reminds me of The Secret Garden, love the brish strokes, & the border, such a lovely vintage look. Hee hee love the ink & blood. Can we see the animation? Sounds wonderful
The Secret Garden – a truly magical book. I would like to put up my animation on the web but I don’t know how. I might get a friend to help me one day. Thank you endlessly as always pinkyjain. xo
I enjoy your story making wayshow your images take you into a worldthat you create
thanks for the invite
makes me think what kind of characters would live here?
Was afraid for a moment that “Boy Drowning” was based on true story, and the blood belonged to killed boy; thankfully not (not that I’m happy that YOU got a nosebleed).
But I wonder if the title is meant to be literal, or metaphrical; like a boy drowning in his imagination or his dreams. The framing creates an interesting dimension; it really seems like you can walk into it and then once again walk into that mounted picture of the path. I really like how you’ve drawn the ground creating that sense of depth, and how the path creates an extended depth.
Thank you so much Mui-Ling. As to the title being either literal or metaphorical….that’s up to the viewer I guess. Thank you for your support and for appreciating this : )
Enchanting but ominously dark. Love this one !
Thank you Steven! Always great to hear from you : )
Another emphasized work from paul; a real talented Visual artist with many rare works and worth awards…!as always…..great mate!!
MhDkHr…….You always make me day! I can never thank you enough for your wonderful comments. Best wishes to you always : ))))
Interesting medium for someting that first struck me as rather benign. But on further inspection I have to agree with everyone else, a rather clever and skillfully constructed image that reveals much more than first meets the eye.
it’s very classique and interesting paul, i always love the use of unusual media and that surprise element draws me in and whets my curiosity….you can definitely feel that it’s going to be a dark day
Nice one Paul !
So we are looking at an empty stage set reflected back at us through a mirror ? Shouldn’t we see ourselves in the mirror.. unless.. “shock.. horror” you/we are vampires ?
Well thats that sorted. This picture analysis is a doddle.. ;)
Ha, I really like your interpretation so I won’t taint it by adding my own to the mix. Thanks for the support Andy : )
