    Really excited about my new art print that came in today! little back story about this print and why its so special to me:

    Hailing from northern central Tennessee, when Aldo the Apache talked about "making a livin' for the family sellin' moonshine corn liquor", I know all about that. Nashville is only a short drive from Bourbon country.

    My Grandfather was born and raised in northern Kentucky. Prior to 1920, Bourbon was the the lively hood of many Kentuckians. Like many areas of the country, Kentucky's economy was crushed by the Volstead Act. After the distilleries closed, many folks were left without work. Some families left the state in search of new opportunities. But, as Aldo said, others set out to make a new tradition; Makin a living for their families selling Moonshine Corn liquor.

    This print is inspired by Aldo Raines wisdom as well as my Grandfather and family, leaving their Kentucky home to find gainful employment in Nashville.... all because of the unintentional consequences of prohibition and the destruction of the American Economy.

    nice, I use french paper as well, and I also do my own screen printing :) I started screen printing on apparel (my own designs) and did this for 3 years. Decided to get back into it and print my own posters... it adds that raw feeling.

    @Jake Toolson Awesome! Yeah, French is the one and only. I tried my hand at screen printing and sucked at it. That's one of the reasons I started getting into block printing. It was just more primitive and didn't need a lot of gear. So when I want to do some screen prints I have to out source;0(

    @Dreamix Studio Europe is no problem! Thanks man!!

    @Josh Smith really appreciate it man! Loving the support!

    Thanks again all!
