Hello again, so soon.
I've got some quick news: the recent TOOL print I created for the 9-11-06 show in Texas is going on sale this week. This poster has seen a deluge of initial requests, so be smart if you want this and be there ON TIME. PAY ATTENTION to the onsale details below, as they have changed a bit from our usual routine.
- TOOL/Isis: This is the 4th print I've done for TOOL in the last 10 years. The first 3 seem to hold up fairly well on their own over the years: I'd like to think that this one will do the same. The regular edition of the print is limited to only 125 copies. It measures approx. 31 x 26 inches and is a 9 color screenprint, including 3 separate blends(!), a gold metallic, and 5 uncoated pantone inks. It is printed on French black stock and signed and numbered in permanent gold metallic ink.
Image wise, the imagery means whatever you'd like it to mean...but I will say that I designed it to be viewed while listening to the first track on the latest TOOL cd, entitled 'Vicarious'. Look at it while listening to that song, and you might get a taste of where I was coming from....if you care. Though it looks differently, there aren't 2 separate beings depicted in this image: only one.

Now, the onsale process for this print will be handled a bit differently: I want to insure that this is done fairly and that no one gets any 'upper hand' in the process. Here's the deal: this one goes on sale FRIDAY, September 29th. I AM NOT SPECIFYING AN EXACT TIME. The print will go on sale sometime during the day between 12 NOON and 4PM CENTRAL TIME. Just go to the website (http://www.JermaineRogers.com
) and keep checking for the link to buy this print. First come first served. Limit one per buyer.
In this manner everyone will have the same 'chances' to get the print...cause no one will know exactly when it will go on sale...no one but me. But I've provided you a reasonable window of activity, so the persistent man/woman will likely get what they want. So plan accordingly. Get ready to refresh your browsers, form your email alert 'tag-teams', set shifts for 'web watchmen', or whatever...
That's it. As usual stuff is always shipping. Any questions, email me: Jermaine@JermaineRogers.com

Next time: Melvins, Built To Spill, and a VERY big change occurring on Nov.1st that I can finally talk about.
So anyways, I'm talking to EMEK and Justin Hampton on the phone yesterday and we were discussing 'risk'. And I mentioned that 'the fruit is always out on the end of the branches...so you've got to leave the security of the sturdy trunk to go out on the limbs to get the blessings'. Then EMEK says,' Or you can just the tree down and get all the fruit.'
So I thought that remark needed to be shared with everybody...for some reason I can't quite put my finger on.
