“One fine day in the middle of the night,
two dead boys got up to fight.
Back to back they faced each other,
drew their swords and shot each other;
One was blind and the other couldn't see,
so they chose a dummy for a referee.”

After hearing part of this poem I felt like I just had to illustrate it, and here is a 4x6 inch print of the outcome. The texture of the ink lends itself to the darkness and confusion of this folk poem.


------------- Approximately 5x7 inches matted
------------- printed on 4x6 inch high quality matte 190gsm bright rag art paper
------------- signed, dated, titled, and numbered in the bottom margin.
------------- the print is held in place by clear photo-safe corners
------------- sticker on the back shows the entire poem being illustrated.
------------- Clear protective sleeve.
------------- Will be mailed in a sturdy ”do not bend” envelope.

The original work is 11.5x17.5 inches and is available for purchase upon request.
