Introduction
Google Cart Reviews: https://checkout.google.com/reviews/merchant/endUserReviews?sellerId=277296763527281

  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

6. Is this going to be in an exhibit at Ford's Theater?
It looks promising.

They are still made of cuttings but you are correct they are not words.
