Binners artwork – for sale anywhere?
I’ve often enjoyed the big mans work on here but have never known whether he sells it. I imagine that there is some hanging on the walls of Gregs but I rarely make it in
Anyone know if there is a website?
Binners, if you are reading this and would rather send me an email it is in my profile. I may be interested in a commission but have to confess I have no idea what that would mean price wise (ie whether I can afford it).Posted 3 weeks ago
I’ve only just seen this. Thanks for the interest Shackleton. I’ll email you now.
I don’t put prices on my site as with commissions it’s a bit ‘how long is a piece of string?’. It depends entirely on what you want. As I do pretty much anything at any size, so if you wanted a 30 x 40cm personalised version of an existing design, but with you and your bike added in, then thats going to be a whole lot different, price-wise, from something that going to take me a day to draw up and be printed massive (biggest yet is 4 x 4.5 metres).
But I keep my prices reasonable as I firmly believe that having personalised bespoke artwork shouldn’t be the reserve of people with wads of cash. Plus I love doing what I do, and I genuinely regard it as an honour that people choose me to do something so deeply personal and special to them. And anyone off here gets mates rates as I’m really grateful for the support I’ve got from you all.
For example, here’s one I’ve just done. It was commissioned as a first wedding anniversary present to his wife and shows the view across Derwentwater to Cat Bells – the spot where he proposed, with them both in the foreground. I mean…. how nice is it to get the chance to do that for someone? That’s what passes for ‘work’ in my world, apparently. This was printed and framed at a metre wide. With mates rates, you’re looking at 250 quid for that, mounted and framed. I think that’s pretty reasonable for a one-off piece of bespoke artwork.

This is Alex’s, which he’s referred to. Him and his mates in Ardeche…

..and another recent commission. It was for her husbands 50th birthday and shows him, in his favourite Kraftwerk Tour De France top, getting to the top of Mont Ventoux, which he’d recently ridden, printed, window mounted and framed at 80 x 60cm

Seeing this stuff on screen doesn’t really do them justice. I print on 180gsm uncoated cartridge paper on an Epsom digital wide format press which supersaturates the colours. They look completely different at scale, all mounted and framed 🙂Posted 3 weeks ago
Guys if you want to help raise some cash for the Cut Gate Mend Our Mountains appeal then raffle tickets are available here. I’ve donated a framed print of Ladybower, but there’s loads of other goodies up for grabs…

Shakleton – There’s no email in your profile so I’ve just sent you a personal message fellaPosted 3 weeks agopeekaySubscriber
I really can’t recommend Binners enough.
He produced a bespoke piece for us. Me and my partner doing our favourite things (me on my bike, her on her horse), silhouetted against our local landscape. Every single detail in it is special to us. It has pride of place in our kitchen.
We love it so much that we also asked him to produce our wedding invitations for us, using a modified version of the image. They are equally great.Posted 3 weeks ago
