Print of the Month!


"Ink Fink"

 As a studio letter subscriber, here is your EXCLUSIVE 10% discount on the Art Print of The Month! This month's print is entitled, "Ink Fink".
"Ink Fink" was an original 16"x20" mix media painting I created in college that has since sold to my brother. Take the time to look closely at the background of this artwork as you'll find a collage of famous motorcycle racers, female mechanics, and exploded car manual drawings. The back ground of the artwork was created using a screen printing method that allowed me to utilize a bright light that burned these images into a printing screen (like they use for t-shirts). Once the images where in the screen, I was able to take multiple colored inks and swipe them over the design which then transferred the photographs onto my canvas in an array of bright colors. 

Rat Fink, himself, was then hand drawn in ink, using thousands of tiny hand-drawn dots to shade his shape. This way of art making is called stippling or pointillism.

Look closely for these historic figures in the colorful background of "Ink Fink" 

Roland "Rollie" Free was a motorcycle racer best known for breaking the American Land Speed Record in 1948 on the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah. After an early career in motorcycle retail, Free became a regional racer of the 1920s and 30's on Indian motorcycles. To protect himself and allow comfort when in such a position, Free had developed special protective clothing. However, when his leathers tore from early runs at 147 mph, he discarded them and made a final attempt without jacket, pants, gloves, boots or helmet. Free lay flat on the motorcycle wearing only a bathing suit, a shower cap, and a pair of borrowed sneakers. This resulted not only in the record, but also one of the most famous photographs in motorcycling history, the "bathing suit bike" shot taken from a speeding car alongside his run on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.
WAC Pvt. Mary Delession, pictured here in 1943, was from Philadelphia, Pa., and was classed among the best mechanics at Gowen Field, Idaho during WWII. In 1942, the Army created the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps, which later became the Women’s Army Corps (WAC). During the U.S. involvement in World War II (1941–45), more than 150,000 American women served as WACs in North America, Asia and Europe.
