not for nothing (pt. 1)

i am finishing up a series of silkscreens for a show i am having in april.
this particular series is called "Ideas For Things" and it's about the idea of potential and the full-realization of an idea in a rough and raw rendering. a sketchbook drawing made epic in scale. more on this later when the manifesto is all finished. i am half-way joking. this is the first 2 of 8. they are:


"Petal To The Metal"
a peace poster, and anti-industrial plea. also, depending on your outlook, a manifestation of pessimism and futility. but let's try to keep on the bright side. power to the pinkie.


"The Agony And The Ecstacy"
this is the cover for a fake book of philosophy. or perhaps a previously unknown work by a german existentialist. or just a reminder of that never-ending balance. yes, i know i misspelled that word. get into it.

conversation:
me: dude, that third song is my jam.
bro: i know. it's so emo.

these prints are in editions of 25. black ink on white acid free paper, 18x24.
if you're interested in purchasing one before the show, let me know and we can work it out. they're on the cheap side. for the kids.

more to come.

Petal to the metal has to be one of my favorite things you've ever posted. That and the cat/pryamid/third eye poster, that was stunning too.

Bravo good sir!
