“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 fourth print in my Summer 2019 series. Inspired by the Dürer woodcut titled “The Owl in Fight with Other Birds” (1516) and the song Buffalo Bill. This seems like a proper print for the Blossom show in Cuyahoga Falls, OH. My owl was drawn to be not as scary as the original print, and I made the leaf into a cherry blossom, as well and included the venue in the background.
Prints are 9 x12 on 11×14 paper, and printed with Supergraphic black ink by Bill Fick. Black and white editions are printed on 140 lb watercolor paper, and the color variants are printed on 98 lb mixed media paper. Black and white are an edition of 30, and a creamsicle variant of 20. A very limited amount of prints are available in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com , the rest will be sold on lot at Blossom.
The series continues! The 1st in my series of fall tour posters, This print was inspired by the poster for “The Colossus of New York” (1958), and lyrics from Waking Up Dead. I was inspired by elements from the original US poster, as well as a UK Quad version.
The images were all hand drawn, inked (pens and brush) and painted with watercolor. I then scanned them to create a digital painting that is true to the original poster. The prints are 13×19 on card stock, signed and limited to an edition of 150. Available now in my shop
