ABOUT THE ART
"I am very excited to be releasing my first ever tondo print. Both Ends is by far my most ambitious print to date with even more strides taken to create all the colors of the actual painting and the feel of old school comic printing though hand pulled silkscreen. With the CMYK process and spot colors, we were able to achieve 42 optical colors in this print."
