Buy a clown to stop a clown – help elect Bernie Sanders to be President of the United States

In response to the current political climate and as an homage to Andy Warhol’s 1972 Richard Nixon serigraph titled “Vote McGovern,” I made my clown Trump. Normally a print of this quality and size goes for $400-$500 and would take me a year to sell the entire edition. In this case timing is essential. I am making the prints more accessible for just $100. Whatever your reasons for buying, you will have a signed original print for your collection. These are not litho or Giclée where endless amounts of prints can be manufactured; these are original prints. Not one print is the same as another. Each print has its own nuance from the amount of ink applied, ink transferred,  pressure applied, duration of pressure and interaction with the amount of humidity during the printing.

A little information about Linocut Printing
Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum (sometimes mounted on a wooden block) is used for the relief surface. A design is cut into the linoleum surface with a sharp knife, V-shaped chisel or gouge, with the raised (uncarved) areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed. The linoleum sheet is inked with a roller (called a brayer), and then impressed onto paper or fabric. The actual printing can be done by hand, foot, spoon, barren or with a press.

Although linoleum as a floor covering dates to the 1860s, the linocut printing technique was used first by the artists of Die Brücke in Germany between 1905 and 1913 where it had been similarly used for wallpaper printing. They initially described these prints as woodcuts, which sounded more respectable.

Since the material being carved has no directional grain and does not tend to split, it is easier to obtain certain artistic effects with lino than with most woods, although the resultant prints lack the often angular grainy character of woodcuts and engravings. Lino is generally diced, much easier to cut than wood, especially when heated, but the pressure of the printing process degrades the plate faster and it is difficult to create larger works due to the material’s fragility.
