I am just now writing my report to my institution about the conference at the Rijks and was currently writing about your workshop, which was great.  That reminded me, you said you would send us the 360 portrait of my group and I just wanted to follow up on that.  I believe I was in the second slot on the first day – Will Michels.

Dear Hugh,

Thank you very much for your mail.

Just now, a few minutes ago I discovered your wonderful pictures and the two brochures. They had been put in my office, but in a place, where I would never look. In other words, they had been here practically all the time, but ‚hiding‘. I am very happy to see them, very beautiful. Thank you very much.

Cordially yours,

So smooth was the operation that I was making coffee at the time and didn't even notice it had happened!! They are simply wonderful - warm, engaging, characterful. Really beautiful portraits. Thank you so very much Hugh

No one could quite believe the quality of the print they got on Sunday, after chapel at Knole. They look so good, and taking the background colour across the border makes a lot of difference. And all beautifully trimmed, and interleaved, and lovely! Thank you very much. I have another £100 for you: I hope we will see you soon.

Love from us all,  Simon

The top image of Angus is incredible!!!
I think the image of Bonnie is still a little blue and saturated, if Hugh has time to do anything more it would be great, but otherwise he is a master genius!!! Love him!!

Things are going swimmingly here in san Fran...I will send you an ad they are putting in a local mag...the Americans are so professional and the gallery guys fun to work with...

They have re-named the show by my subtitle for Hanging Out (An Affectionate Archive). I think it works really well and carries a bit more 'weight' in print...

Are you meeting up with Hannah this Thursday? If not, can we come and see you next Thursday? I will have another print order for you now that I have seen what SFAE thinks will sell.

We can also talk about the archive then....let me know how your schedule is please...

Everyone LOVES your prints of M and R with the red balloons, Mick with sunglasses, Neil in the car, and Bonnie!

Dear All

You've not all met, but thanks to your various pieces of amazing help today we have just published the Chelsea Arts Club 'Present to the Future' brochure and animation. Thank you all so much for your kindness and patience, particularly in the last fraught three days!

Very particular thanks to Dan (and Rob and Joe) for the amazing animation and to Simon for the truly wonderful brochure; and a special shout out to Hugh, Stephen and Sarah who all rode to the rescue in various ways in the last 12 hours.

I'll be in touch with Rob and Simon again on Monday re a few tiny tweaks (and printing in Simon's case) but in the meantime, as I say, a thousand thanks to you all.

All very best

A million thanks for all the work you did last week. Johnny is delighted with the new high res.

Would it be possible to send me a folder with all the Holland Park pix (Mick and me) in it together. Just a low res version for me.

I want to keep them separate from the others.

First print just arrived, it looks perfect. Great quality, identical to the first edition. 
Thanks for doing it so promptly. 

I have also received the large images via web transfer. Not being very skilful in matters of IT I will have to wait for my partner to show me how to access it. I look forward to it. 

Thanks for everything

Dear Hugh,
Happy new year!

Thank you for doing such a lovely job with the Red Shoes print. I am very happy with how it came out.

About another painting

It's probably best you re-shoot the painting, so that would need to be added to the quote(s).

I have a professionally-shot TIF and JPG, but I know you could do a much better job, and I imagine you'd be happier working from your own shots (is "shots" the correct lingo?)

Dear Hugh

I collected the prints from the delivery centre today.
They are in perfect condition, very well packaged. The border size is just right.

I am transferring the money to your account this evening. Hope that's all fine.

I would definitely be interested in talking to an artist's agent. Thank you - very kind of you

All the best,  Chris

Dear Bella and Hugh, 

Liz has forwarded me the wonderful pictures of Basil's new paintings. I was wondering whether you had any very high res images of these new works as would be interested in potentially using one of these for the poster,  'Step Up On' would be really lovely to use.  If you could let me know if a high res version of this is available that would be great. Our designer is working on designs currently. 

Best wishes,

You are an angel Hugh! And fabulous! And FAST!!!

It's ferier time so we went to a bullfight last night. Extraordinary. Public torment, torture and execution of 6 bulls. I'm still very conflicted about that but I couldn't take my eyes off the action. I wish I had a better camera sometimes.

See you soon…



Jamie McCartney

Hugh, I collected the print yesterday. It's superb, an excellent job. Thanks a lot.
I'm transferring the money to your bank today.
I am exhibiting the original drawing over the summer. With a bit of luck I'll get a few orders for prints. Can I assume that roughly £80 will be your charge per print?
All the best, Chris

Yes Hugh that looks pretty good on my screen  and very true to colour as well. Well done. Sorry about making a meal of it. However I have learnt about the neutral grey and outside  lighting. I think the kodak colour patch I used was  somewhat faded and old so yanking it was probably the right thing to do.

Perfect job done thanks  very much again. I owe you a drink !

Firstly I am delighted with the Archers prints - can you please confirm the cost to me in varying quantities of making up the edition of prints.

Thanks so much

Alasdair Hileary
27 September 2012

Dear Hugh,
I'm so pleased with the prints, especially those that took some time to get colour-right, but now they are spot on.
Regarding the 'Earth from Space' one, done from old colour tranny, looking at other 'red border' ones, I think the white bloom is actually light reflection on the glaze.  So I'd be grateful if you would do two more large ones, size height 35cm, with the red cleaned up somewhat.
I shall be at the club tonight around 6-7.30 and again Sunday evening, possibly on Saturday too (can't keep me away!). Or could pop round to your studio, whatever suits you.
Again many thanks for superb prints!
