Q. As an airbrusher, would you like the Christmas cards you give to your family and friends to be airbrushed designs?

Alexander Medwell is unknown as an artist, but known to the airbrushing industry as General Manager of The Airbrush Company Ltd. Unfortunately his job leaves little time for actually producing artwork, but he likes to keep his hand in with an airbrush painting once or twice a year. What better way than to do it for charity? Read more about Alex's family history in the airbrush industry on Airbrushes.com/about_us.php

Alex painted the bauble red to add more Christmassy colour, while the original photo taken in 2005 had a silver bauble. You may be able to spot the reflected silhouette of the photographer Jane Burton who sadly died of cancer two years later in 2007. This adds a special poignancy to using the image for a Cancer charity card, especially for Jane's son, Mark Taylor, who on behalf of Warren Photographic kindly granted Alex permission to render his airbrushed version of the image for charitable purposes.

High-quality lithographic printed card with glossy finish

2012 design selected by Cancer Research UK
and 250,000 printed for their official 2013 range!

Alexander Medwell painted this beautiful robin for The Airbrush Company's 2012 Christmas card, helping us increase our total raised for Cancer Research. He then offered the painting to Cancer Research UK and they selected it for their official range of cards for 2013. Cancer Research UK printed at least 25,000 packs of Robin in Snow. This is more than 250,000 cards and thus the highest number of prints of Alexander Medwell's work ever produced. These are available to purchase from Cancer Research shops from August 2013. However, we do have a few thousand left of our own really high-quality glossy lithographically printed version, which all raise money for Cancer Research. We are selling Robin in Snow along with the kitten design as an assorted pack. Please click on the 'Buy Now' link below!

'Santa Knows' painted by Alexander Medwell using an Iwata Custom Micron B airbrush and an Iwata Hi-Line BH.

Santa Knows what you want for Christmas or Santa Knows whether you've been naughty or nice? You decide!
Alexander Medwell painted this rather knowing Santa based on his own reference photo of his Uncle John dressed-up, who has also featured in some of our Christmas promotion images. This was one of the designs in The Airbrush Company's first ever charity Christmas card collection in 2011, alongside an Hawaiian Tiki-themed card by Dennis Mathewson and a Madonna & Child design by Giorgio Uccellini. Alexander painted this during company hours, hence the company's copyright ownership, while he continued to paint the robin and kitten designs in his own spare time for the later years. We granted The Smiles Foundation permission to have 1,000 Christmas cards printed with the same design in 2012 to raise money for aid in Romania. Due to having three designs in 2011, we only had 600 of each printed digitally, so Santa Knows is currently out of print.
