Good morning forum members,
Above has started printing a new series titled Idols, heroes and pioneers. The first print in the I.H.P. series is Marilyn Monroe and titled, Marilyn likes it hotter. He explained that each print is heavily hand painted from the very beginning up to the final layer. Above is painting directly on the paper with brush, spraypaint, stencils, and oil pastels to give each print an extremely unique 1-off quality.
Take a look the images we have so far of this 20+ layer print being made.

This is a mock up testing out different colors in Photoshop.

We hope you enjoy watching Above's progression of the Marilyn likes it hotter. We appreciate all of your love and support. Jessica.

Above finished printing the A/P reverse edition of Marilyn likes it hotter This print has 24 layers and as you can see every print is very different from the other as Above hand painted each one individually.

Image
in process with still more layers to print.

Image
Here is one of prints from the A/P 'reverse' edition.

Image
Each print is a unique 1-off.

Hello Expresso beans forum members. I just got this question on the Giant forum board so I wanted to reply to your questions. Let me introduce myself to you and the other forum members. My name is Jessica and I'm now taking over the posting on forum boards for Above's artworks. Yes, Karen was fired as Above didn't feel she was posting correctly and making his appearance on these forum boards reflect negative on his art. We are now working together on changing a lot of new positive aspect of how I post about his new releases. Admittedly I'm on these forum boards to post about new works from Above but I actually have an interest for prints and many artists on these forum boards so I will be trying to partake in other threads as well :) As you have seen by my previous post Above is working on a new print with many layers. He and I talked about his interest for me to post new images of his process of this print for all of you to see and enjoy. My intention is not to spam like Karen previously did but to instead inform and show you actually interesting images of upcoming works from Above. On behalf of Above I want to say thank you all for your love, interest and support. 2013 is shaping up very nice and we hope to offer you beautiful prints from Above.

This is was creative and made me laugh. Above is working on the normal edition of this print. Since every print is completely unique in this edition the only way to make a different AP version was to flip the image reverse. This edition seen here is the reverse AP edition. Thank you again.
