What do I offer on this website?
Originally the medium "blotter" was intended for the distribution of LSD, and it was not collected as an art form, however today "undipped" and legal, signed and limited edition blotter art sheets are highly sought after and collected for their historical and artistic value. Over the decades, thousands of blotter sheets were witheld and saved from it's illegal distribution and use, by collectors. Most of them have by now become rare "Blotter Art" and collectors items, especially when they were signed by the artist or prominent people in the field of psychedelic research at the time.
On this website I proudly present our entirely new, limited edition and signed collection of Luke Brown's blotter art, made with the highest quality standards and honouring all it's unique characteristics, as a tribute to true blotter art. The sheets are made with chlorine free and acid neutral, 100% cotton blotting paper, are high resolution printed with archival standards, perforated manually with the highest precision. Numbered and signed by the artist and each come with a certificate of authenticity.

The Number 9
The measurements of the Blotter Art I produce are not just random. In this work, 9 is the magic number. Every measurement is based on the number 9. The sheet is divided in squares of 9 x 9 millimeters, in rows of 27 x 27 squares, which is divided in 9 sections of 9 x 9 squares. The sheet size is 270 x 270 millimeter and the perforated part is 243 x 243 millimeters. The unperforated border is 27 millimeters wide. No matter how you sum up any of these numbers it always adds up to 9.
Numerologists understand that the number 9 holds an exceptionally wise, spiritual energy. It contains every other number that has come before it (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 = 45, and 4 + 5 = 9). So symbolically, the number nine is the container for all worldly experiences. As well as this, it’s also made up of the sacred trinity, thrice (3 x 3) which gives it additional sacred power. When something is repeated 3 times, its potency is increased. When it’s repeated three times three, it’s power is ultimate! The 9 is also regarded as widely tolerant, loving and compassionate, though the love that it offers tends to be expressed as universal, rather than romantic – the number nine has a widely humanitarian edge. Being the last simple number, it is the number of finalisation or finition; it is therefore the most complex, that marks the full lighting up of the numerical series.
