Welcome to BIL DONOVAN LIMITED

Our Story

BIL DONOVAN LIMITED began in response to the many requests Bil has received over the years for prints of his illustration work. Bil approached his husband Ken Nintzel,  a multidisciplinary artist in his own right, asking him to help form Bil Donovan Limited to create high quality reproductions of his work and make them available for purchase. Bil had certain printing standards he wanted to maintain and Ken went to work  seeing how these standards could be achieved.  After many months of research, experimentation and collaboration they are now able to create  giclee prints of Bil's work.  Giclee (pronounced zhee-KLAY) is a process in which digital images are scanned in high resolution and printed with an ink jet printer, in pigment based inks on archival fine art paper . We favor this process for its ability to reproduce the subtlety of color in Bil's brush and ink work, especially in his washes, making these prints as lush and unique looking as the originals themselves. We are personally very pleased with the results and hope you will be as well.

We look forward to sharing more of our process with you here on the blog.
