The Taxman

So I went into my CPA t'other day to get my taxes done, and it was UGLY.

And by ugly I mean that despite quite a lot of prepayment, the taxman would like three thousand dollars.* Right now. Yes. (The government really does not like freelancers. The real horror? I prepaid a LOT quarterly to try to avoid this. Owie.)

So I limped back home, nursing my tender bits, and set forth to paint. He's a sort of steampunk version of the Plague Doctor woodcuts, and he has his pet ferret because I affectionately call my CPA my tax weasel.

So here's the deal. The Taxman is going to be a limited edition jumbo print, but I don't know how big an edition yet. S'up to you guys. For $25 plus shipping, you can order one now--send me a note right here on DA or e-mail me at ursulav (at) to order. I'll take orders right up until April 15th, and however many got ordered, that'll be the size of the edition, plus two (I'll keep the first and last for a pair of upcoming shows that need filling.) It may be an edition of two if nobody likes the piece, it may be an edition of fifty if a lot of people do--we'll find out! Come April 15th, the edition closes, I'll do the print run, sign and number them, and send 'em out, and that'll be the last they'll be available unless you A) hit one of those two shows or B) somebody decides to part with theirs.

The prints will be 13 x 19, signed and numbered. I'll take paypal, check or money order, and we'll see if I can't offset a little of the anguish from that tax bill, eh?

*And I didn't even get a courtesy reacharound...
