"The painting that inspired this print took me almost 3 years to complete. Not because it was massive, or the most technical but just cause I kept endlessly layering and layering paint and textures over one another until it felt complete. I wanted to approach this print with the same obnoxious ambition to create textures and layers far beyond what I have printed in the past. Although it took FOREVER to complete, I'm really happy with the end result." Some advancements include: An increased number of printed colors (24 plus an additional 25th layer split-fountain). Hand Painted Half toned elements referenced in his newer bodies of work. Hand made textured layers for print. An increase in the number of semi-transparent shadows and highlights. An increase in the number of semi-transparent overlay layers creating new optical colors."
