Choose the “stand-alone” portrait or Co-design a unique artwork with Artist Daniel A. Moore!
Artist Daniel A. Moore’s new pencil drawing portrait of Coach Bryant portrays the greatest past college football coach ever! Moore found inspiration for this work in Leonardo da Vinci’s striking drawing, the Turin Self Portrait. In keeping with that genre, the artist has digitally infused tone and background into his drawing to visually simulate some of the same patina and richness inherent in the Old Master’s centuries-old masterpiece. The artwork is being offered by New Life Art as Fine Art Giclée Prints and Canvases. It is available as either the stand-alone portrait or merged to create a montage using 4 vignettes of players from the Bryant Era. As Co-Designer with the artist, you will choose one vignette for each quadrant from a selection of vignettes composed by the artist from his past paintings and drawings from “The Bryant Era.” Also as Co-Designer, you can even create your own title (of course, no crude language or disparaging connotations permitted) or select from one of our suggestions. Furthermore, to assure you have a one-of-a-kind print or canvas, you can choose to have a credit line printed in the left corner of the image area. It will read: "Co-designed by (Your name here).” Or, if you are co-designing the art to present to someone else, you can have the credit line read: “Co-designed by ( Your Name Here ) for ( Recipient’s Name Here ).”
After you place your custom-designed order, we will email you an "approval proof" showing your chosen composition (please allow up to 1 week to receive this proof). Once your proof has been approved, we will commence publishing your commissioned giclée print or canvas (please allow 3-5 business days for the print production). Each will be signed and numbered by the artist and accompanied by a personalized Certificate of Authenticity. Edition numbering will occur consecutively, based upon the date we receive your approval.
If the "Portrait Only" or "Bryant Legendary Players" has been selected, please allow 3-5 business days for print production. Please allow 7-10 business days for completion of custom-framed orders.
If you have any questions about the possibilities or process please call us at 205-637-2942 during our business hours of M-F from 9am-5pm.
