'Descent into Madness' Giclée Print

Back in the Edo Period, most houses were built from wood, and so fire was always a concern. There are several prints from the 1800s depicting firemen in action, and I referenced these heavily for this composition. The snaking, rake-like fire lines were achieved by flattening a large Japanese brush, and dragging the bristles over the paper in one smooth motion. Honestly, it took a few tries to get it right!

The left cartouche says "Dark Knight" and the right one loosely translates as "Become a monster to fight monsters."

Archival pigments on acid-free handmade Japanese paper.

Every print is signed and sealed by the artist.
Measures 12x17 inches.

This print looks great in three standard 16 x 20 frames (US, Canada) or 40 x 50 cm (everywhere else).
Jed really likes this one for its simple design.

31.75 x 43 cm.
