Jim Franklin, Original, SIGNED 1984 Armadillo Silkscreen Print, "Fenced In-Fenced Out", in a limited edition, this being number 59 of 150 printed, dated and originally SIGNED by the artist with his characteristic "JFKLN" to the lower right corner; a delightful image, brimming with Franklin's convivial 'dillos who seem to be enjoying themselves so much, that to be "in or out" means naught. Jim Franklin is one of the best and most influential of the classic 1960's-70's Texas poster artists; Nels Jacobson, fellow poster artist and historian, describes Franklin as eschewing "the prevalent San Francisco style…to develop a distinctly Texas poster look through his de-emphasis on stylized lettering, and his pen and ink renderings rife with crosshatching, absurd juxtapositions, and an army of beatific armadillos. [He] populated posterdom with an unending parade of the lovable local mammalian worm-eaters…floated them over highways, orbited them in space, squeezed them from tubes of acrylic paint, and mated one with the State Capitol Building". Original silkscreen print, 15 ˝" by 19 ˝", printed to heavy gloss paper stock, with some light rubbing to the right silver border and margin, else about near fine. Very uncommon. J2293
