as he returns with a selection of unique hand-painted screenprints.
"I use photographic images as the basis for the art, but I would sometimes draw directly on the acetate before I burn the screens to bring out parts of the images I felt were important.
Each piece for this RUN was individually screen printed and hand painted using a variety of acrylic and other mediums. Take notice of the colors rather than the image, even though that might be difficult to do sometimes. The colors represent what's going on in my life at any given moment." - Bobby Hill
