“And she knew that what she made would be the finest in the nation”
The eighth print in my Summer 2019 series. I was very excited to work on this for my hometown show! In the hopes of some dark jams and evil Phish during the Camden run, I looked at some of Dürer’s prints for the Book of Revelations. I took a portion of his print “The Whore of Babylon” (1498) and reinterpreted it as Reba on a Multi-beast on the banks of the Delaware with the BB&T burning in the background. They actually ended up playing Reba, Tela, and Antelope during the run, but no Sloth.
Prints are 9×12 on 11×14 paper, and hand carved and printed. . Both editions are printed on 140 lb watercolor paper. Black and white are an edition of 30, and a watercolor variant of 7, as well as edition variants. Due to the nature of the process each print may slightly differ in background color. I had these with me on lot at Camden and the remaining prints are now available in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com
Dürer -The Whore of Babylon, from The Apocalypse (1498)
The 7th print in my summer tour series. This was the poster I was most excited for, because its a hometown show (although I’d rather be at the Mann!) and I felt it captures the feel of Camden. The print is based off the poster for “Werewolves on Wheels” (1971). The lack of background allowed me to take more time in recreating the main image, which I created using brush and ink. This was one of my biggest challenges, and I tried to keep it true to the original, although I did make some changes (Trey’s guitar, a telephone, the Rhombus, Biker Trey) As always, the images are all drawn, inked and watercolored, then scanned and digitally arranged. Prints are 13×19 on cardstock, signed and limited to an edition of 150. Prints are currently available for sale in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com , and will be available on lot before the shows.
