I love the use of the white paint on this one. Can't wait to see this in person. Another amazing print Jim! This is great subject matter, I love when his prints are based off of real people. The size of Capone's forearm is definitely a "loaded gun" of sorts! Its great how the red and blue paint layer to make the darker color of the coat.

Pollock used the Vandercook 320g Proof Press to print this. I wonder what this press is all about, I googled it and found some pictures. Looks interesting, from the late 50's maybe? I wonder how he decides which press to use? I imagine it has something to do with the print size, the amount of time he has to get the run done, and maybe some of the characteristics of the finished print that he wants to accomplish?

Can't wait to see what else 2013 holds for Jim Pollock and his amazing imagination!

Sorry, but I can't think of a single artist who has devolved more than JP. Really a shame. Some of his earlier work is absolutely gorgeous and masterful. Now he has resorted to releasing APs at more than market price to make his money instead of putting the time and effort into new releases.
