Highly Collectable Charcoal Art

Did you know that the 21st June is World Giraffe Day? World Giraffe Day falls on the longest day and longest night of the year - depending on where you are in the world.

Porcupine Rocks are delighted to be able to offer this beautiful collection of limited giclee print editions of original charcoal drawings, including the magnificent giraffe, by Central St Martinʼs School of Art graduate, Lucy Boydell.

Lucy studied under the instruction of renowned foundry man David Reid who, in his inimitable way, honed her skills, helping to make her the internationally recognised artist that she is, not only for her outstanding animal bronzes, but also for her large scale charcoal drawings. Her work is in several private collections in Britain and abroad, and we are excited to be able to offer these stunning animal prints here at Porcupine Rocks.

The detail in these exquisite pieces of art is unbelievable, giving each animal the lifelike qualities that make you want to reach out and stroke them. The texture of the hair and eyelashes on the ostrich or the leathery skin of the alligator highlights the technical skill that has gone into producing these pieces. In every piece of work Lucy does, she visits smallholdings, meets and talks to farmers, breeders and zoo keepers up and down the country in order to understand the subject more. Nearly every animal she produces, she has met – with one or two exceptions.

Lucyʼs work is becoming highly collectable, and these beautiful drawings wonʼt be around for long. If there is a particular animal you would like, then we can arrange a commission for you. Each print is numbered (for example 5/300), mounted and printed on giclee art paper. A framing service is also available, and we can advise you on the appropriate level for your artwork, helping to preserve these stunning pieces for future generations.
