some prints

www.someprints.com sells prints by the Manchester-based accident of various shapes and colours Graphic Nothing. Graphic Nothing is the pen/mouse name of Gary Andrew Clarke.

Mona Lisa poster

He was born and raised in a 1970s Leicester (middle of England, middle of nowhere). Early ambitions to become either an entomologist (insects), paleontologist (fossils), space ship model maker or astronomer never quite happened.

So he studied graphic design in Leicester and Manchester (BA Hons, that sort of thing).

Willy Wonka poster

Truman Show poster

During the 1990s and 2000s he worked in the Manchester music industry, performing graphic design and web design. He won a few web awards — for Portishead & Twisted Nerve Records.

He lives in Manchester, or rather Stockport. He likes biscuits.

He also kindly offered a free A2 print of your choosing to four lucky readers.

Paste a link in the comment thread to a photo of “your desk now” and I’ll randomly draw four winners on Friday (updating this post and sending you a ‘winner’ email). I might also publish your photos with a link to your website in an upcoming blog post.

Update: Friday 29 July
Happy to announce Karinya, Luis Nunes, William Btight, and Samantha as the lucky four. You’ve each been sent an email with instructions for collecting your free print.

  1. Thanks, Marissa. Hope the vacation’s going well.

    Tamar, I don’t have access to your photo unfortunately. Sounds interesting.

    Oh, and Renato, super extra appreciation for the book on your desk.

  2. Let’s try this again…

    Recently relocated to a new country, and therefore a new home. Walls are a bit bare, and I’m LOVING the work of this artist. So much so, in fact, that I was inspired in how I chose to photograph my desk…

    To everyone else, thanks again for sharing a little insight into your lives. I enjoyed browsing your desk spaces (so did a lot of others judging by my web stats).

  4. Andrew, no plans to create some of my own, but my office walls are looking a little like yours at the minute. Gonna get me one of Gary’s fine pieces of work and hopefully a nice black or white frame, too. Thanks for dropping in.

  5. OHHHH YAY!! Thanks heaps to David and Gary! Can’t tell you how excited this just made me :D
    The only problem now is choosing from that array of awesome prints!!! Thanks again :)
