Continue reading after the jump for more info as well as the trailer for the documentary.
“This is the last Jane related project I will ever release. The making of this project will be featured in an upcoming mini-documentary filmed by McFarland & Pecci Productions.
“The Jane Project” has been a massive undertaking that I have been working semi-secretly for a few years now. Over that time period, I created 90 “one-of-a-kind” Mixed Media pieces using my well known “Jane Doe” image as a foundation. Utilizing Japanese Gouache, Acrylic, Spray Paint, Ink, and other mediums, I slowly built up each image over time. This arduous layering process gave each piece unique textural character that carries a luminance and depth that could never be created any other way.
Each piece measures in at 23.5″ X 31″ in size, and all are hand signed and lacquered on plywood, ready for quality framing. I will be handpicking each one that I send to my customers. Since each one has its own color palette, what color you will receive will be unique to you and you alone.
As always, thank you for your continued support.”
Since I am a little late reporting this all of the Jane Doe prints are already sold out… Sorry.. But if it makes you feel any better they were 700 bucks…
