This is a black and white urban landscape original ink drawing ACEO of a sleepy, French café alleyway. This one of a kind piece of fine art is hand drawn in India ink with a traditional dip nib pen on professional quality, archival, cold-press stock. It measures just 3.5 x 2.5 inches (8.9 x 6.4 cm), about the size of a typical baseball card (please see photo four for size reference). It is a beautifully detailed scene, quite a feat for this small format. Every subtle shift of light and atmosphere is finely rendered with the strict value range of only black and white. The path leads you in, leaving you curious as to what is through that alley door. The back bears my signature, as visible in photo three.

ACEO's (Artist Card Edition Originals), also called ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) are highly prized collectables that are sweeping the art world with skyrocketing popularity in recent years. These pint-sized masterpieces are a perfect way for budget-conscious art collectors to own original pieces of artwork at an affordable price point. They are an excellent alternative to giclée prints for those who prefer original pieces over reproductions.

ACEO's / ATC's are often displayed in frames with a wide mat to compliment their petite size. They are perfect for small spaces like hallways, where the viewer would not have room to back up to the appropriate viewing distance required for larger pieces. They are also excellent for narrow walls and that difficult-to-decorate space above the kitchen counter. Some collectors alternatively choose to display their ACEO collections in special binders that make excellent coffee table books.

Your ACEO comes with a clear plastic slipcover to protect the surface of the artwork, and will ship securely between two pieces of rigid cardboard in a padded mailing envelope.
