The 400 Blows

This entry is the 400th since Self Vs. Self started on August 23rd, 2006 – a big but unexpected milestone. I thought I would offer one of my works as a simple expression of gratitude to everyone who has joined (and stayed with) me on this serpentine narrative journey.
Based on a favorite sketch in pencil and ink wash on paper, Iku, For You (pictured above) – iku is Japanese for "I'm coming!" – is an unlimited edition printwork that can be downloaded for free
(for a period of 30 days) and reproduced under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 Unported License on any home ink-jet using a paper of your choice. As with my other unlimited editions online, you can send your hard copy print by snail mail to my studio, along with a self-addressed envelope, and I will stamp, sign and even inscribe it for you on the verso and send it back.
Between now and the beginning of December, I'm also going to give away two or three original, framed photographic works – stamped, signed, and dated artist's proofs from my recent PORNO show. I haven't worked out how I'm going to decide who to give them to yet. I'm open to suggestions. In the meantime, keep watching this space.
