I finally stopped procrastinating and completed the section on my illustration web site, stevensalerno.com, where viewers can now purchase limited edition prints of some of the illustrations and drawings I have done over the years.

(navigation: Use the pop-down illustration portfolio menu at the top of the homepage and click on the LIMITED EDITION PRINTS section to view the available art prints. And the site's bottom menu bar will have the "image info," the "pricing," and the "add to cart" scroll-overs and link...)
Currently there are 14 various art images available as a limited edition print, ranging from whimsical illustrations I created for children's picture books, to food art, and all the way across the content spectrum to much earlier drawings I did of the punk scene in NYC in the early 1980's... with more of my art images becoming available as prints soon.
To create these art prints, my original artwork is digitally scanned then superbly printed on acid-free 100% cotton rag fine art paper with brilliant permanent pigment inks. Using advanced inkjet printing technology which sprays millions of continuous microscopic ink droplets with unsurpassed precision, the quality of these high resolution Giclee art prints is exquisite, resulting in rich, vibrant images that accurately capture the colors and tones of the original art. This is the same ultra-fine inkjet reproduction process museums use to make precision replicas of art in their collections. I hand number & sign each print within the limited edition. Most of the editions are a total of just 100 prints. You receive the unframed print and a Certificate of Authenticty registered to the buyer. (gift wrapping is not available)
These prints are truly of terrific quality, and are rated (in terms of retaining their color pigmentation level) to last up to 200 years without any significant fading... but this is contingent upon the print being properly framed and sealed behind 98% UV protected glass or acryic (plexi-glass) as well as not being displayed on a wall receiving any strong direct sunlight or in an area of high humidity.
The secure on-line purchase transaction is conducted through PayPal -but if there is anyone still adverse to making purchases through the web... contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can certainly do it the old school way and work out a payment via check through the mail.
I am thrilled and honored that there are people out there who want to own one of my prints for their personal home collections!
