DESIGN I first sketched this artwork during a Draw-A-Thon fundraiser supporting the art department at Latino College Prep Academy (LCPA) in San Jose. I returned to the graphic during the COVID-19 shelter-in-place and the imagery, anchored in both love and defense of what matters most, felt especially meaningful to me at that time. In a time of chaos, that feeling of individual strength & power was something I thought deserved celebration.
Like all Jimmy Paints items, this artwork is designed & handprinted with love from my San José printshop / studio.
DETAILS Artwork approx. 8” x 10”, printed on paper that’s 9” x 12”. 50 lb. Blick Masterprinter paper.
If you’re unfamiliar with lino printing, it refers to a process that starts with carving a design into a linoleum block, layering ink on top of the carved design, and then printing the relief image onto a surface – paper, fabric, etc.
And please note: the photos you see are of a test print that is intended to help you clearly see the design / image you’re purchasing (plus another of the original lino block I carved into); note the specific details provided here regarding the size of the artwork, size of the paper, & paper style. The artwork you receive will be hand-printed to order!
