"Himalaya Palace" - Custom Order

Customer Mark Williams just sent me this great photo of his recent order - a custom A1 "Himalaya Palace" print - seen here framed & in good company :)

I'm really pleased with the quality of colour reproduction & it shows off how the print looks in larger formats up to A0.

The digital vector format of the original illustration means that scaling is virtually infinite without any loss of quality or artefacts in the final print, so bigger is definitely better, as the photo shows (superheroes / super-villains for scale, but not included :))

Thanks again, Mark !

Check out this event next Friday 4th May which looks at Southall On Film, something celebrated here at TheNakedSwami with a series of cinema and film-themed prints highlighting both the architectural aspects and film heritage of Southall, which once boasted a film studio.

Pictured is the Dominion Cinema during the heyday of cinema-going in the U.K, and when the building seemed very prominent compared to the surrounding architecture, as if an ocean liner had somehow been deposited in a suburban street.

The Dominion print is as close as possible in detail to the original design, minus the neon tubes visible in the picture, which must have looked spectacular at night.

If possible I'll be there too, handing out postcard prints but if not, you can purchase a set from the - or just click the blue "Shop Now" button at the top right of The Naked Swami Facebook page, link below.

One of the first customers for the cinema-themed prints, in Pasadena, U.S.A , sent me these shots of framed A3 format prints, and they look terrific.

They're very pleased by the quality of the prints (as I am) , the speed in processing the order and shipping to the U.S - a very efficient and prompt service from the U.K supplier.

Apparently the owner of the framing store was very impressed, too.

The feedback I had from the client chimed with my feeling that these designs work best in larger formats, i.e. A3 upwards, due to the fine detail, so she is considering ordering in A2 / A1 or A0 in future, depending upon space available for hanging.

Shown left : "Liberty Dragons" - A3 Roundel Design Print

This design incorporates actual architectural surface detail found on the "Himalaya Palace" cinema (originally The Palace) in Southall West London, a surviving iconic example of 1930's cinema architecture designed with an oriental theme.
