"Stamps" Acrylic on Watercolor Paper, duplicated and reproduced on sticker paper, 2002
This is a sheet of fake stamps I created and included in 'Zine back in 2002.  The original work was an acrylic painting on watercolor paper.  I scanned it, duplicated it on sheets of sticker paper, then cut off squares and put them in with the 'Zine.  I got the inspiration from an exhibit of psychedelic art that I saw at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland.
