    Daniel Danger 'Fenway' Print Fiasco Update

    From Daniel Danger,

    "welp. so here’s the skinny… the Fenway prints were printed pretty last minute in time for the G1988 'GREATEST MOMENTS IN SPORTS art show (I was still real sick, got a bit behind schedule), and only a handful of copies were shipped down to the gallery to display at the opening; the rest would be shipped to me to sign and number and return to the gallery for shipping. all i saw of the displayed copies were some photos, and i initially expressed some concern over the actual final product.  however, i wanted to see the print in person before i made any real opinions about the future of the edition, which i knew wouldn’t be until after SXSW. today they arrived and i anxiously opened up the box and laid them out on the table; and my mouth aligned itself in that way it does when im not happy with something and i know i’m going to have a long day. (you can skip the next paragraph if marginally technical pre-press talk is the opposite of the kind of thing you care about.)

    so i opened up my files and drawings and poured over everything for a while. silkscreening is a fairly binary artform, either there’s ink or there isn’t, and thats really up to the ink. however, my drawing style isn’t that precise, and sometimes if i’m not careful those tiny hatched out lines aren’t REALLY as cut and dry and defined as they need to be to expose properly. unfortunately, that’s what happened here, the drawing wasn’t high contrast enough way way zoomed in down in the nitty gritty in those tight areas, and needed to be ‘opened up’ by adjusting the overall tonal nuances of the drawing. getting rid of the mid-tones that were clouding up those tiny open lines (remember silkscreening is binary, and grey is neither a 1 or a 0, and thus is bad), and giving all those white lines a little more breathing space. i knew how to fix my problem, so that’s what were gonna do…  i called the gallery, and we decided the best course of action was to dumpster/burn this entire run (NO. You can’t have one!!), eat the production cost (oof…), and re-print them with the proper changes. if you’re going to do something, best do it right. i spent entirely too long on this to send out something i’m not happy with, and i want you to be happy. i made all the proper arrangements with my printer and hes going to get started within the week on the reprint, and then we’ll get these out to you all as soon as possible. the first photo shows a comparison shot vs the first printing, the second photo shows an example of how much i’m opening up those lines. so! yup, that’s whats happening. we apologize for the delay, because i know a lot of you guys are absolutely rabid about this one, but id rather apologize for a production delay then apologize for the alternative.
    for those who immediately put yours on ebay to make a quick buck, i apologize but with a lot less sincerity." - d
