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.
