“Marlon is the youngest of ten rowdy rodents. He is always the last one out the door, struggling to get his shoes tied if he can find them at all. He can be a bit shy at first, but once you get to know him he is wildly funny and clever! Cheerful and care free, Marlon is happy doing whatever he does, gladly wandering from one place to the next. He is always a little pocket full of fun, but if you can help it, try not to mention his height.”

This playful A5 wall art print titled ‘Marlon's Tail’ from the Animal Portrait set has been hand illustrated using fine liner pens, digitally coloured, and printed in Melbourne by The Nonsense Maker. The highly detailed drawing portrays the bottom half of our little mouse friend Marlon, dangling from the top edge of the wooden frame. His long tail goes to the bottom of the frame, and is tied with a little blue bow. Inspired by a dreamlike world where little is what it seems, this art print has a simple colour palette, using shades of brown and cream against a maroon background.

The Nonsense Maker’s ‘Marlon's Tail’ art print is hand made in Melbourne using all Australian suppliers. Beginning with a pencil sketch before moving to pen, a method called crosshatching is used to create the depth and the tone you see in the final design. This fine line art is then scanned into a computer and coloured digitally. All our art prints are printed on the highest quality paper with fade-resistant pigment ink, giving them the same life span as a painting.

Animal portrait wall art prints are an expression of yourself and are the perfect way to make a space uniquely your own. Framed art is about finding the right balance of size, colour and composition, and it can be tricky. If you are feeling a little lost on how to frame art prints, check out our blog page for our best tips for decorating with wall art.

The Nonsense Maker’s Australian art prints are imagined from a fun and whimsical world where dreaming meets reality. Sometimes silly and sometimes sad, inspired by etching techniques used by old time illustrators. While the handmade greeting cards have much less detail, the animal portrait art prints can take up to 60 hours to create. Each of The Nonsense Maker’s wall art prints come packaged with a vintage book inspired backing board, and a short story of the inspiration behind the animal portrait.
