Introduction

  In 2009 I finished a Burroughs style cut up collage that took me three years to complete. I cut words and phrases out of magazines and glued them back together to form a picture of Abraham Lincoln being assassinated at Ford's Theater (April 14th, 1865). I just recently finished a much smaller 1x1 image that depicts the US evacuation of Saigon.

I am giving away high quality copies of both images in the same format and quality I use to print mine, so you may download, manipulate, print or do whatever you want with them but I would appreciate it if you did not reproduce these images for profit.

My friend setup this image viewer for my pictures to help see the details and read the words:
1. http://paradox.rambisyouth.com
2. http://escape.rambisyouth.com

You can see a very small example of paradox here:       


You can see a small example of escape here:


Cant afford it? Download it! Or Trade some art!

I have attached a tiff on each site you could download either image and print yourself if you like but please do not reproduce for profit.

I will also consider art trades for prints.

Now accepting bitcoins!

I wish to help bring legitimacy to the currency by offering my prints in exchange for bitcoins. I will give 10% off to anyone who uses bitcoins to buy my prints and the exchange rate can be worked out via email until both parties are satisfied. If this is successful I will look into automating the process.

For now if you wish to purchase prints from me simply email the address on the site for a quote and the details will be worked out via email until your complete satisfaction.

FAQs

1. Is the original for sale?
I am not currently interested in selling paradox. I am thinking about selling it after I sell the 100 limited copies. However I am interested in selling escape.

2. Was this a school project?
No. In fact I am studying plant sciences at UC Davis. All my profits go to help buying me more time to study/paying for school!

3. What quality is the tiff?
The tiff available on my site is the same file I used to make my prints except that in the paradox file I added a small watermark with my website address at the bottom. I did this in the black border so it is easy to remove. However, I didn't do this for escape because I didn't feel like wasting people's time to take it out.

4. Can you sign it?
Of course! However you can't complain about any messages I leave or the mediocrity of my hand writing.

5. What paradox?
The name is derived form the literary device paradox
