America's Nightmare Handfinished - American hardcore - the decline of western civilisation
70 x 75 cm on Coventry Rag Vellum 290gsm *
4 colour screenprint made in the USA with Handfinishing, this time I am painting with CANON ink (more expensive than gold). We have a new mega printer for our digital prints and the old cartridges were going to be recycled so I thought I might remove the inks and use them to draw and paint and splatter with :) I think the effects are pretty cool and damn ! the pigment is intense. Still think printer inks are a massive scam though.
*This is a new paper I am using from an amazing supplier in the US that used to supply the same paper to Keith Haring.
Screenprinted in Portland Oregon USA.

This country’s potential for greatness and true genius lies in its diversity.
