New print release! This is our third edition with the amazingly talented Stacey Rozich, and perhaps my favorite to date. As always, Stacey’s work is playful, colorful and beautifully detailed, featuring a tiger walker and four bogeys – recent additions to Stacey’s latest works.
The small, green, bat-like creatures in this print – I like to call them bogeys – are the little bit of humor I like to inject into my pieces, some more subtle than others. They sometimes drink cans of Rainier beer, smoke cigarettes or joints as big as they are – generally causing mischief and mayhem. In Tiger Walk with Me, the unbridled carnage of the tigers is a way of amending the bad behavior of the bogeys through primal instinct – crushing them, chomping in half – showing them who’s boss. The way the figure is straining to reel them in also reminds of me of so many dog owners who take their dogs out and have to be wary of other creatures engaging them in potentially messy situations. I got to play with scale for this piece, since the original is a lot larger than I’m used to – 15″ x 22″. This gave me a chance to play with the detail of the two tigers, as well as the figure reigning them in.
This print is available in multiple sizes, and in an archival ready-to-hang version. It was digitally signed by the artist. The 8×10 and 11×14 prints are numbered by The Working Proof, and the 16×20 prints come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Learn more here. Stacey chose to pair this print with Farm Sanctuary because she believes in animal rights and the safe harboring of mistreated and abused animals.
