These prints are a screen-printed run of an old, two-part stencil I made for Josh MacPhee’s traveling “Stencil Pirates” exhibit years ago (2002 or so). I made this not long after a bike which had been stolen from me was quietly returned, after two weeks of postering the neighborhood asking for it back.

The transparencies for this image were transferred directly from the original stencils with black spraypaint. The stencils are quite well-worn, so there are some spots where the lines fuzz as on the original. Background printed with split-fountain, so colors vary slightly per print.
