Like many others, I was surprised and disappointed with what happened in November. It has been difficult remaining upbeat and positive and fight the good fight in the face of such blatant greed, dishonesty, racism, hypocrisy, intolerance for diversity, disregard for the health of the public and the environment, and nurtured divisiveness. The only option other than becoming overwhelmed and giving in is to continue to fight hate wherever it sprouts and join others in doing what we can to make a small difference wherever possible.

In honor of this and all the support, feedback, and great conversations I've had on Expressobeans, I would like to do a giveaway. The winner will receive the PATRIOTIC STARTER PACK, which includes a signed/numbered print of my upcoming release PATRIOT, along with some I Want to Believe pasters on Mr French Parchtone Relic Gold paper, a signed/numbered American Flag AP print, and a whole slew of stickers, including the most recent stars and stripes ski mask sticker.

For my latest print, I wanted to capture the quick and dirty energy of rebellion, using taped reverse stencils and spray paint to create test sprays that I scanned into Photoshop to create the layers for the two color, full bleed screen print, meant to evoke a flag in distress. The print itself will release on Thursday, June 29 at noon CDT at http://www.armandochainsawhands.com/patriot-1.html. A handful of unique hand painted multiples on 300 gsm Arches 88 paper and 250 gsm Stonehenge black paper will release at the same time under the Originals section.

Finally, some quotes that have really resonated with me lately:

“Awake, arise or be for ever fall’n.”
-John Milton, Paradise Lost

“When one with honeyed words but evil mind persuades the mob, great woes befall the state.”
-Euripides, Orestes

“Power-lust is a weed that grows only in the vacant lots of an abandoned mind.”
-Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

“The distrust of wit is the beginning of tyranny.”
-Edward Abbey

“In every age it has been the tyrant, the oppressor and the exploiter who has wrapped himself in the cloak of patriotism, or religion, or both to deceive and overawe the People.”
-Eugene V. Debs, Voices of a People's History of the United States (Canton, OH, Anti-War Speech, June 16, 1918)

“Every act of rebellion expresses a nostalgia for innocence and an appeal to the essence of being.”
-Albert Camus, The Rebel: An Essay on Man in Revolt

“Just because something bears the aspect of the inevitable one should not, therefore, go along willingly with it.”
-Philip K. Dick, The Transmigration of Timothy Archer

“The greatest purveyor of violence in the world: My own Government, I can not be Silent.”
-Martin Luther King Jr.

“I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.”
-Thomas Jefferson


TL,DR

The giveaway starts now and is eligible to any Expressobeans member who has joined at least a month ago. Pick a number between 1 and 241 and post here, keep a list/order by quoting and copying the previous quote/list and adding your number. Price is Right rules apply, so closest number without going over is the winner. Deadline for entries is Wednesday, June 28 at noon CDT, at which time I will use a random number generator to pick the winner. Thanks and good luck!

Still a few hours left to get your entries in, thought I'd share some pics of the finished print. The blue looks almost black in some of the closeup pics but I think the prints turned out great!
