Beginning July 1st, Critical Hit will be discontinuing the large majority of Skinner’s giclee prints for sale. All the prints you see below will NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE after this month.
We asked Skinner what his motivation for making the transition from giclee to silkscreen prints was, and here’s what he told us:
“I am totally in love with silkscreen prints and I want to support the industry as much as I can. I don't know, maybe it’s my love of the printing tradition or the smell of a freshly pulled piece. I’m not at all opposed to giclee, but I want to approach offering giclees differently—more like time-selected limited releases instead of large numbered editions. And I think it’ll make it more special (and collectable) for the collector that way.
Also, I plan to start some newer paintings this summer, and I may release some of those in giclee in super limited, time-selected runs. But for the most part I am just going to be making silk screen prints because they’re awesome, affordable and they support a great art tradition I want to see stay alive. Before I discontinue my giclees, I wanted people to have a chance to buy the ones below until the end of the month at which time they’ll be GONE FOR GOOD! So if you've been checking one of these out, you better snatch it!”
All the prints you see below will be discontinued at the end of June so we can make room for killer new Skinner art!
Thank you everybody for all your support!
