I discovered Amy Duncan when she left a comment on my interview with Emil Amos of Holy Sons, Grails and Om. Duncan is a painter, illustrator and a tattoo artist at Chapel Tattoo in Melbourne, Australia. She has also been taking classes in botanical illustration. Her tattoo work is distinctive but her latest venture has really caught my eye.
Amy and her husband Shaun, a photographer, writer and musician have created a company called Lepus Luna. In their own words it "is a space we've created for exploring and sharing the art we make both individually and together, and with time will also become a space for sharing work by others we admire".
To date Lepus Luna have released two limited edition prints of Amy's work. The first was 'La Louve' a strictly limited first edition of 23, made using Epson Ultrachrome K3 pigment inks on 100% cotton rag Hahnemühle paper. All hand signed and numbered in gold pencil with embossed seal on the bottom left corner, and hand-painted metallic gold highlights on the bell and third-eye jewel.
The second features a tiny botanical illustration of a young Amanita muscaria mushroom, is now available. These prints are 148 x 197mm in size (5 7/8 x 7 3/4"), and printed with Epson Ultrachrome K3 pigment inks on 100% cotton rag Hahnemühle paper. An ultra smooth rag was used so even the finest of details can be reproduced, and the prints are hand-signed at the bottom right with graphite pencil.
