"We're Still Here" by Freed is a 24" x 18" screen print, with a run of 75. The print is $50 and will be released on Wednesday, September 28 at 3 PM EST at http://freed.bigcartel.com/.
Details from Freed:
We're Still Here is based on a photo I saw of two soldiers spraying a wall in Iraq. We are at the point right now in our country that the economy has gotten so bad, it has consumed nearly everyone. The “Support Our Troops” stickers have faded and the outcry to bring our soldiers home has died to a murmur. The mainstream media has moved on, relaying news only when there is a tragedy in which American lives have been lost. The fact is that over 125.000 troops are still in Iraq and Afghanistan – and the conditions they live with day in and day out are extremely dangerous. These soldiers, and the ongoing sacrifices made not only by the soldiers themselves, but also by their families, should not be forgotten.
Coinciding with the release of the print, a canvas (acrylic and spray paint) edition of 5 will also be released. The canvas edition is 30" x 24" and will be $250.
This will be the last print that will allow for people to join the First Hour Print Club. One becomes a member by simply purchasing a print. Members have already received either a free screen print or an original piece of art – or both. There is still a free screen print coming around Christmas time – this print will be exclusive to members. All prints and originals are offered to members of the First Hour Print Cub prior to the public drop.
The original "I Want To Believe" canvas - featuring a faceless child - will be given away to someone who buys either a print or canvas. The winner will be chosen from the mailing list, so please sign up if you haven't already.
