This is a limited edition giclee print of my own, original, cityscape drawing. It is printed by the artist on a page from a vintage, 1976 copy of 'On The Road,' the classic beatnik era novel by Jack Kerouac. Each page is hand selected in order to ensure that the text interacts nicely with the image. The page is beautifully, naturally yellowed from age with a wonderful texture that only time can produce. I list each of my prints individually, so the the print you see in the pictures is the exact one you will receive. This is print number 1 of the limited run of fifty. The very first one! It is neatly numbered and signed by the artist at the bottom of the page.

The original piece of art was rendered in India ink with a traditional dip pen in the strict value range of black and white, the perfect medium to capture the intricacies of urban grit and strong sunshine. This piece captures a glance down an alleyway in San Fransisco as a young man carries his laundry slung across one shoulder. One of my favorite things to depict in my art are passing, everyday moments. I believe most of us overlook the beauty in everyday things, and I have made it my mission as an artist to point out the ordinary and the overlooked.

Print measures 7 3/4 x 4 3/4 in (19.7 cm x 12.1 cm).

I promise I did not destroy an innocent, intact book to make this print. This particular copy had a broken spine, loose pages, and was beyond repair. Instead of tossing this piece of history, I decide to give it new life as art, one page at a time.

Your print will ship safely between two pieces of rigid cardboard inside of a padded envelope.
