“It is rumored that so polluted are the oceans that entire territories exist because of our very waste. If only we had the same capacity as the pearl oyster to sublime the foreign particle, in what used to be the soup of life!”
Print of “7e Continent” (“7th Continent”), an illustration by messalyn drawn in 2014 with ink and quill. Important note : this is a reproduction print, not the original!*
The illustration is reproduced on a A4-sized paper (21 x 29.7 cm = roughly 8¼ × 12 inches), so it is smaller in size than the original. It features 1 cm (⅜ inch) margins to allow for the artist signature and numerotation and ease the framing process. The paper — Couché demi-mat in 300g — is smooth, almost bristol-like. On these particular prints, the black hasn’t been contrasted as much as it could, as such it is truer to the original drawing.
