Sam Spratt Makes His Gilded 1x Debut

1xRUN Thru Interview
Gilded by Sam Spratt

1xRUN: Can you tell us a little bit about the original piece? How long did the piece take?   
Sam Spratt: The original piece was painted digitally with a Wacom Cintiq 24HD from scratch. I wanted to draw something shiny, so I did. That’s all there is to it.  It took roughly 18 hours.

1xRun: What is unique about this piece? Why should people buy this print?    
Sam Spratt: It’s extremely shiny-looking. It’s really rather fetching. How fetching? Well, Industrial Light & Magic owns one, so… a considerable amount.

1xRun: Describe this print in one gut reaction word.     
Sam Spratt:  Shiny.

1xRun: If you could collaborate with any living artist who would it be and why?    
Sam Spratt:  Odd Nerdrum. Just so I could make googly eyes at his freakish talent whilst he paints dead things.
