How to get one of my newspaper blackout prints for less than $20
As many of you may know, 20x200 is down, and I don’t have time right now to release any new prints in the store, so here’s a cheap option that makes a good valentine:
- Buy a copy of Newspaper Blackout and tear out your favorite poem
- Obtain a cheap 8x10 frame w/ a 5x7 matte, maybe from IKEA.
- Frame your poem.
Of course, the same method will work with any of your favorite illustrations from Steal Like An Artist — just substitute a square frame with a 5x5 matte.
Enjoy! And join my mailing list or follow me on Twitter to find out when I have new art for sale.

I wrote a little something about fair use for the New York Times this morning:
There are four factors that determine whether a work can be considered fair use, and I’ve found that these legal constraints can actually be turned into artistic constraints. Rather than limiting my creativity, these constraints make the poems better.
