the original razor had been reprinted as necessary for applications in the street. but a horizontal print wasn't the most appropriate for every location or situation. needed a new vertically oriented print that could be re-run as needed and would hopefully carry similar weight.
didn't take either of these photos. the mash up of a prayer card depicting christ, and a book cover photo of anton lavey. this was originally done as a design for a band. they didn't use it but i thought the image was strong enough to use on my own.
chronologically, with new prints being at the top of the screen and older at the bottom, these should have come somewhere around the 'bowel' print. but didn't come across these until now and don't know how to change the order of posts.
doing 'give up' started in late 2000, early 2001. to fill the hole left by quitting graffiti. and pursue other ideas and expression within my 'art'. i work from my own photos, manipulating at a photocopier with scissors and glue, in the cut 'n paste manner of old punk/hc fliers. then blow the finished work up into larger scale screen prints. i don't use photoshop or any other computer programs, and don't appropriate photos for reference from the internet or other sources. things started slow, not getting serious until maybe 2003. and even then not fully immersing myself until probably 2005. the work featured here is in as close to chronological order as i can recall. oldest at the bottom, newer at top. and will serve strictly as a catalog. for streets, billboards, stickers, merchandising, stencils, occasional commissions, galleries, 'lifestyle', etc, please visit my personal blog, listed in the links section. for information on purchase, or any other questions, please contact at firstname.lastname@example.org.
