I'm Crushing Your Head
A Paper Tiger has got a new Limited Ed. print available from artist Deth P. Sun entitled I Will Crush You. It is a 12" x 12" giclee print on Sommerset velvet archival paper. The imagery in the print and the texture of the background remind me of the old Tootsie Pop® commercials from way back in the 70's with the owl and the tortoise trying to figure out how many licks it takes to get to the center. Apparently Deth is a big cat lover, so maybe this image could be seen as a response to this video of a tortoise chasing a cat. Apparently, Deth rarely does prints and is concentrating his efforts on doing only two shows a year, so this is a rare opportunity to own a piece of his artwork. And only $100 a piece is a good value for one of only twenty-five prints produced.
