Loose Cannons & Peppered Steel


DrypointEngraving/ Photopolymer Intaglio

22" x 30"

This image was created following a theme of youthful delinquency and mischief that concluded with a focus on the classic 'run and gun' bank heist. 

The print combines scenes from multiple generations of robbery that evolved throughout the 19th and 20th centuries until modern day and features just a few of history's most infamous. Clockwise from the bottom left, the portraits feature Jesse James, John Dillinger and Patty Hearst, as well as an unknown masked individual who represents the modern day robbers and cyber hackers that have yet to be caught.

Prints were pulled on Magnani Pescia rag paper. The white proof is an edition of 5 and the cream proof is an edition of 3.
