"The Knockout! series is kind of a companion print to my Superficial! release from last year. This series is the other side of the coin to the aggressive punching character in last year's release, which I look at as a metaphor for the ups and downs of daily life.
As for the creation process itself, this series is one of my more heavily layered editions. Each piece began with a layer of collaged vintage comic book pages to create a unique base texture. The pieces were then sanded, hand deckled, and built up with a variety of screen printed layers, acrylic washes, and spray painted textures giving the series a very rich and complex surface.
This labor intensive process mimics the layering and decay of old signage & street advertising and leaves each print in the series completely unique from the next." - Greg Gossel
