His pieces always interested me, but I hesitated on purchasing prints because of the initial reaction to the violence they depict. I finally pulled the trigger last year and am kicking myself for not starting collecting Cleon sooner. When they are up on the wall, for some reason, they became the pieces that I enjoy most and spend the most time thinking about which has translated to my day to day. This latest piece was an easy +1 for me.

Framed up Poison today. Still need to hang it, but here are a few shots. Very much liking the look of this, and plan to frame up Police Shooting in the same style to hang with it.

I'm sure it'll free up shortly. There were plenty left not long ago and this has been a silent release
