Mr. Natural's 719th Meditation Signed & Numbered Serigraph Print

Wildwood Serigraphs and announces the release of Crumb's new serigraph edition: Mr. Natural's 719th Meditation

Crumb and I initially talked about the idea of using his three page Mr. Natural's 719th Meditation strip (1970) stacked vertically, with a Buddhist thanga border, but we couldn't find any suitable reference material that would support the idea. So then we looked at different ways to arrange the panels. It was Crumb's idea to stack them 6 x 6. Once we rearranged the panels, Crumb then created a color guide, something that took him some time. Meanwhile, I cleaned up the black line artwork he gave me (took me almost a month). Finally, while color separating, I followed Crumb's color guide faithfully–he did a fantastic job with the color. 

So we're proud to announce the release of the new Crumb 16 color serigraph edition. The edition is 100 prints. The white paper is archival BFK Rives paper which is 22" x 26". The image size is almost "16 x 18". Each print is numbered, signed and dated by Crumb. Each print also comes with its own certificate of authenticity, which was written and drawn by Crumb. Release date is Wednesday, April 24th. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
