DANIEL MITSUI ~ ARTIST


DEAR FRIENDS, PATRONS & BENEFACTORS:

I am starting a new sale on original drawings, which will last through September 8th. All of them are now available for a full quarter less than their usual price. I announced a similar sale last year, which proved popular, so I am thinking to make this a regular summer event. Please e-mail me if you are interested in making a purchase at the discounted price; I am very busy with commissioned work, and have not had time to reprogram all the payment buttons on my website. If you do purchase one of the original drawings through my website at its regular price, I will consider the difference a contribution to support my artwork, and my family.


St. Peter the Apostle
Regular price: $814
Sale price: $611



Please also consider the many giclée prints that are available through my website. Sales of these have dropped precipitously in the first half of 2023, which I suppose is due to hard times and scarcity all around. I will note that I set my pricing for these prints in July of 2013; I have not raised it all in the decade since, in the hope of keeping them affordable for people of ordinary means.

As always, benefits for my supporters on Patreon and the patrons of the Summula Pictoria are linked at the bottom of the newsletter.

Yours faithfully,

        Daniel Mitsui
