The Faded Line just finished production on 3 SILK SCREENED jigsaw puzzles. MARSians, Peacock, and OM Mantra are all limited edition, signed and numbered by artists Emek and Jeff Wood, respectively. At 15"x22" and 513 pieces, these will surely challenge even the advanced puzzler.
We will release these shortly after Christmas. Happy Holidays!
These turned out amazing folks!
We are proud to announce the addition of the Limited Edition Prints and Products category. The Faded Line will continually update this category with limited edition, signed and numbered prints and other goodies. Make sure to check it often as many of these will sell out quickly!
Up for grabs is the new art print by Jeff Wood entitled Electric Voodoo Fire. This amazing print boasts 10 fluorescent acrylic colors screen printed on sand colored 140lb French Madero Beach Speckletone paper. It's safe to say that this may be the most impressive black light poster known to all of man! Signed and numbered edition of 115.
Hurry as we only have a handful left! TheFadedLine.com.
This is the first edition Black Light Electric Voodoo Fire is an 18" x 24" --10 color Black light screen print done in a street style painting technique on 130lb French Paper. This is limited small edition of 115 prints. It is a portrait of Jimi Hendrix from a sketch I did after being inspired by all the street art in the narrow alleys in Amsterdam . The piece was originally conceived as a painting. After completing the painting, I decided to do a small run of prints for my collectors. The first run done in non-black light Golden Acrylics sold
out in a matter of hours upon release.
I originally intended to do the piece as a "true black light" poster using fluorescent inks. "True black light" meaning a poster that is designed to look good under a black light as opposed to just a print with some fluorescent ink thrown in random places. All the ink was hand mixed using fluorescent pigments. The paper is loaded with optical brightener making it glow purple.This image comes alive under a black light!
The original image was painted using brushes, stencils and spray paint. Each color was hand painted separately on paper and then made into a film positive for screen printing. It was screen printed using hand mixed fluorescent inks resulting in extremely rich vibrant colors that literally vibrate off the page. I think I may be doing a series of black light posters. I wanted to do it years ago, but never got inspired. This print may have just done the trick.

His album covers pulsed with angular hepcats bearing funnel-tapered noses and shark-fin chins, guys who fingered cockeyed pianos and honked lollipop-hued horns. Flora wreaked havoc with the laws of physics, conjuring flying musicians, levitating instruments, and wobbly dimensional perspectives. He was not averse to pigmenting jazz legends like bedspread patterns. On some Flora figures, three legs and five arms were standard equipment, with spare eyeballs optional.
Flora has posthumously added The Faded Line Clothing Co. to his client roster: his estate, Jim Flora Art LLC, has authorized us to feature vintage Flora figures on a festive line of casual apparel. Flora once said that all he wanted to do was "create a little piece of excitement." He overshot his goal with much of his work. You will soon be able to wear that visual excitement.
A selection of Flora LP covers was published in The Mischievous Art of Jim Flora (Fantagraphics, 2004). A second book, The Curiously Sinister Art of Jim Flora (2007), features dozens of Flora's rarely seen early paintings, woodcuts, prints, sketches, and commercial assignments. See more Flora works online at JimFlora.com and JimFloraArt.com.
