Coming home after work one night, Ellis was robbed at the doorstep of his apartment. He vividly remembers a shadow passing over him while he was facing the door, and he turned around to a man with a two foot machete. Inspired by this incident, he became aware of every shadow he passed and began using chalk to outline them.
Ellis' distinctive (and temporary) street art has since been appearing around New York for years. This photo that was screen printed was taken in the Lower East Side of Manhattan and the print was hand embellished at our booth at the 2011 NY Comic Convention.
This gold, NYCC special is in a very low edition of 25. We will however, be releasing a larger, silver edition as part of the 323East Exhibition called, "The Future Is Now," on November 5. The November exhibition will be a group show, featuring New York artists Kimyon Huggins, Ellis G and AVONE.
