I worked with a company a few years ago, Acumen Entertainment/Movie Goods- a company that I met through the Shooting Gallery in San Francisco that produces affordable prints and posters. At the time, I knew it wasn't necessarily the best thing to do with my art, but I tried it- and have continued to be bummed out on making that decision. Other artists at the time that made posters with this company were Ron English, Van Arno, Anthony Ausgang and a few others.
I have told them to stop making these things- but I see them pop up on Ebay from time to time and they are not worth more than $20 each. DON'T BE FOOLED.

These are NOT giclee prints nor were they 'limited edition'. They were 'print on demand'. They are 'posters', that were produced by Acumen/Movie Goods. Claiming that these are giclee's is incorrect, misleading and false. These were made and sold as cheap posters at $20 a pop.

We did do some larger scale, limited edition giclee prints of value with these specific images-
'Portrait of the Artist, Genevive Zacconi'
'Portrait of the Artist, Gregory Mocilnikar'
'Juan Puente's Machine Collection, The Arsenal'
'Portrait of the Artist, Kerry Mcracken'

These were all printed in limited editions of 75.

Everything else from this company was printed as a POSTER.
