"The Knockout! series is kind of a companion print to my Superficial! release from last year. This series is the other side of the coin to the aggressive punching character in last year's release, which I look at as a metaphor for the ups and downs of daily life.On sale Tuesday at NOON EDT at 1xRUN.com
As for the creation process itself, this series is one of my more heavily layered editions. Each piece began with a layer of collaged vintage comic book pages to create a unique base texture. The pieces were then sanded, hand deckled, and built up with a variety of screen printed layers, acrylic washes, and spray painted textures giving the series a very rich and complex surface.
This labor intensive process mimics the layering and decay of old signage & street advertising and leaves each print in the series completely unique from the next." - Greg Gossel
