To us, clip frames are the antithesis of what we do. All our art is conservation framed, meaning that all materials are acid free, the art is mounted correctly and each piece is sealed dust and dirt free. Every frame is then tailored to the piece of art - enhancing without overshadowing it. Your art is framed to last and it looks superb! What do we frame? The question here should be what don’t we frame! In the past we have framed everything from vintage Disney production art, to wedding dresses, chocolate bars, movie props and even the football shirts for a whole team! Some great examples have included: Elvis’ tailor’s scissors; a wedding bouquet; a cricket bat; a boxer’s belt and Mel Gibson’s tabard from Braveheart!

Phill Jupitus – September 2005 A love of animation for many seems to be hard wired into their cerebral cortex from childhood. Something about the marrying up of cartoons and movement The Force is Strong with The Animation Art Gallery was always going to be a hit from day one. I can remember going to see The Jungle Book when it was first released being blown away by the loose vibrant lines, which gave such a sense of weight and movement to Baloo and the loping grace of Bagheera as he leapt from branch to branch.

  15. 15. 39629 animation cat.qxd 15/6/06 1:31 pm Page 16 TODD GOLDMAN exclusive to The Animation Art Gallery Todd Goldman has popped up on the art scene with a bang. He brings to the gallery a new funky spin on art and a lot of laughs. His art has shown everywhere from New York, California, Japan and now comes to London. His arrival hasn't been without a little controversy, one New York DJ described Todd's signature piece "Boys Are Stupid, Throw Rocks at Them" as "disrespectful and degrading", but frankly we think he's missing the point somehow, and it doesn't seem to bother Todd. When we asked him about this he said "It's all in fun, and besides, I didn't start this. When Lucy pulled the football away from Charlie Brown, was that degrading to boys?" Our collectors certainly don't think so, Todd's work has been incredibly popular here at the gallery and one collector has even TG780 Boys Are Stupid, Throw Rocks At Them £2750 32” x 42.5” picked up an original Boys Are Stupid, certainly proving that Original Art. Signed and Numbered. (Lithograph available at £575) some boys definitely aren't! Todd will be at the Gallery during 2006 - don’t forget to log your details with us for regular updates of events. WHY BUY TODD? Todd's original works are now selling before he can complete them, making these editions even more desirable. Each edition is hand pulled by Master Printmakers using a vintage (Circa 1870) French Lithographic press. Now is definitely the time to buy into the Goldman phenomenon.
