Hi. My Name Is Graham Colton.
I live near Byron Bay, Australia's most Easterly Point.
I began initially by drawing with coloured pencil on paper.
I moved onto teaching myself how to use Microsoft Publisher to draw some characters for a children's book I was writing as yet unpublished.
It took me a lot of time and energy to work out how to draw those characters. Space Characters and Robots
They were the end result of many many days,years spent with the basic shapes and other drawing options that MS Publisher offered.
Such things have ways of gathering their own momentum.
All that you now see in my Gallery are the result of that initial desire to write that story.
I'm more than happy with how things have turned out since that time.
I have only recently moved onto drawing much larger, generally 1400mm x 800mm and using Illustrator and Photoshop and nothing else.
I have been very happy with what I have been able to create since then.
Thank you for Visiting My Gallery. Graham

Gives the frame its character and provides the perfect setting for an artwork to be fully enjoyed.
Protects the artwork from dust and wilting so that it can be admired for many years.
Adds depth to an image and works with the moulding to enhance and protect the artwork.
Bonds to the artwork ensuring it is perfectly smooth and holds the whole frame together.
We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.
In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.
After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.
We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.
Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.
In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.
After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.
For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.
As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
