I got this for myself while buying a birthday gift for my mum, it was too cute to pass up XD I identify with Hufflepuff and Slytherin equally, so I got both of them to go together.

I got this as part of a birthday present for my mum-She Loves Thor, Loki, and Black Cats so this was perfect. The detail and quality are stunning! I got it to go with the Thor Kitten so she could display them as a set :3

About

Clockwork Art: Artist & curator. Watercolour & oil. Steampunk & circuitry. And kittens.

I'm Braden Duncan a.k.a. Clockwork Art, an artist & curator based in Seattle, WA. I work primarily in watercolour.

INSPIRATION:
I am fascinated by the effects of transformative technologies on contemporary society, and I aim to take over the world with the strange and the adorable. As our lives become increasingly mechanised & electronified, humans & animals must adapt to survive. My pieces represent organic beings enhanced for their new roles in a bio-industrial world. I can also officially say I've turned 'crazy cat lady' into a viable profession! I make art that I love, and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to share my creations.

I love painting animals. I grew up with a menagerie, and I have always been fascinated by the colours & textures of feathers & fur and the fun little quirks that make each creature unique. My favourite muse is my little black Diesel kitten. Being adorable is her job, and she takes it very seriously. Painting my own kitty inspired me to start painting pets for friends and family as well; through Clockwork Art I now have the pleasure of painting animals from all over the world!

PROCESS & MATERIALS:
I paint surrounded by my kittens in my Seattle studio. All of my materials are archival and acid-free. I have my work professionally scanned, colour-proofed & reproduced locally so that my fine art prints always resemble my original pieces as closely as possible. After extensive experimentation & comparison, I've settled on two different trusted online retailers to reproduce my note card & magnets.

For more info about me, my work, and Seattle art events, feel free to send me a Convo or check out my website (www.clockworkart.com) or help support me through Patreon (www.patreon.com/ClockworkArt).

Cheers!

Production partners

  • Bellevue Fine Art Reproduction

    Bellevue, WA

    Locally owned & operated printing & scanning shop in Bellevue. I don't have bulk printing capabilities in my studio, so BFA handles all of my giclee printing & large format scanning. All prints are then hand-trimmed & packaged for re-sale by myself in my studio.

  • Pure Buttons

    Medina, OH

    After many failed magnet-making & ordering attempts, I stumbled upon Pure Buttons. Their quality & professionalism is unparalleled, and, as I don't have the ability to create magnets in bulk in my studio, I defer to their expertise.

  • Top Notch Copy & Print

    Seattle, WA

    Locally owned & operated print shop in North Seattle. I don't have bulk printing capabilities in my studio, so Top Notch handles the majority of my cardstock printing. All prints are then hand-trimmed & packaged for re-sale by myself in my studio.

  • VistaPrint

    Boston, MA

    VistaPrint is a Dutch company regionally headquartered in Boston that specialises in professional marketting materials for small businesses. I don't have the ability to print notecards in bulk; so VistaPrint handles the printing, and I fold & package each card by hand in my studio.
