Crumb first drew a pen and ink cartoon/portrait of Janis Joplin in 1969. This is not that portrait! Almost 30 years later, Crumb drew another portrait of Janis (in the same pose and with the same background) which is this portrait. We released this portrait as an etching in 2008. In 2019, Crumb colored the portrait for a screen printer in Europe who produced an edition of 120 Serigraphs of this image. With slight variations, we're now offering Crumb's colored version of his portrait of Janis Joplin with a 300 print giclée edition.
The Somerset Velvet archival paper is 17" x 24," the image is 13" x 17." The edition is printed with Epson Ultrachrome archival inks.
The Estate of Janis Joplin has, in lieu of payment, the rights to the first 50 prints of this edition, so please don't ask for any low numbers, because we don't have any! However, we do guarantee your complete satisfaction with your Janis Joplin print or your money back.
