Long before Australia Post, there was Isaac Nichols, the English ex-convict appointed as the first Postmaster of NSW in 1809. Nichols job was to collect all letters and parcels arriving by ship on Sydney’s wharves, thereby avoiding the chaos of people rushing aboard to collect their mail. Nichols would then post a list of recipients outside his house on George Street and in the pages of The Sydney Gazette. Recipients paid a shilling per letter to collect mail from Nichols’ home, with parcels costing slightly more.

From HOW I FELT
A series of 200 felt prints I created during 2019 & 2020.
Every work is hand-printed in Sydney on recycled acoustic felt.
I sign, title, number, date, and frame every print myself.
Not only is felt warm and fuzzy, it improves a room’s acoustics.

FRAMING

All Going Viral prints come in the frame colour shown.*
Only 70 × 50 and 50 x 50 cm prints are available unframed or framed.
10 × 15, 21 × 30 and 23 x 23 cm frames include a stand and hanging hook.
L-pins or a hanging brace are the easiest way to hang unframed prints on plaster or wooden walls. A frame is better if your wall is brick or concrete.
None of my frames include glass because felt looks better naked. 
I can provide clear acrylic (not glass) and a sealed backing for $30 if the work will be hung in a moist environment like a beach house. Click here to add acrylic to your framed order.
*Unless otherwise specified.

SHIPPING

Ships in a box. Sydney art lovers can avoid shipping costs by collecting work and paying cash at my studio in Darlinghurst. Otherwise shipping is calculated at check-out. Each print is hand-made so please allow 2-4 weeks for domestic delivery and 3-5 weeks for international. Let me know if you need a piece urgently as I may have one already printed.

CUSTOM WORK / COMMISSIONS

I’m happy to quote on custom felt prints featuring your choice of subject matter in any size. I also work with interior designers to create feature walls that visually and acoustically enhance living or work spaces.
