Glendale and my First Silk-screen


top 76 20x26 slikscreen
bottom Glendale 19x26" oil on wood


I hope you guys find this exciting news I’ve teamed up a silkscreen artist (and fine artist in his own right) WK Moore on a very limited edition silk-screen of 20 of one of my paintings entitled “76.” These are hand pulled with 17 separate colors (passes) 20x26; some of the border is trimmed in the scan.

Unlike Giclees, these are hand done with each one have slight variances. While based on original oil these are unique pieces of art. I’ve kept the price point low at $150 unframed $225 framed so everyone can afford one. Shipping will be about $20 depending were you are located. I’m going to put together a store soon, but if you want to guarantee getting one you should E- mail me to hold one for you. They will also be available at the show Friday.

Wow, that's crazy. 17 colors?! I've never heard of such a thing. Looks pretty cool though.

Coincidentally I just designed a 5 color poster for the Emerald City Comicon. Still trying to figure out the seps for them...

Wowza! Seventeen colors--so many ways for registration to go wrong! Congrats to WKM on his execution.

I love, love, love the Glendale painting. Yellow & gray combo--want to eat those colors. Cross composition, brushstrokes, area where parking structure overlaps the tower, Prius-bus faceoff, economy of detail: Abstracted Expressionism meets Representation--Yum! And, yes, I'd love to do an intro for you some day.

You're hooked up with the most original, daring, and unapologetic artist I know of out there. I wish you success!!

Will.. congrats on your show. Perhaps you'll post some photos later for those who could not attend. Your painting of the brilliantly lit building and drips of color is still ringing my retinas - in a kick ass way; love it -- And the silkscreen, look'n good and you managed to take a photo that matches precisely the real deal.

Congratulations Bill!
This edition will be a sell out.
Looks very marketable.

We saw it Friday at your show - I had never seen a silk screen by you before and I think it turned out great! You keep surprising us with new sides to your art.

This silkscreen is great! How was it done? Digitally? How were the 17 colors separated out?

Keep doing it. I'll watch for more to pick one to buy.

Hey David-- the naked truth is buying this one will help facilitate the production of the next one. I'm going to come up with an incentive for folks who buy them all. Not sure what that is yet.


17 colors is the crazy genius that is my collaborator WK Moore, he can break it down for you.

I LOVE the Glendale one, you do fantastic with glowing colors in darker blue gray backgrounds, like the shopping cart at Target a couple of months ago too. Like both Matisse goldfish and Klee's Fish Magic.
I just might buy it. You got that spiritual thing goin on, something we sadly lack these days in our worship of self. Great work.
