My political satire prints are now available at affordable prices! This actually marks a new decision I just made: to release my political prints for on-demand printing (open edition, rather than limited edition) and doing original drawings for my future gallery work. This is a huge change for me.....we'll see how it turns out! Check them out on Fine Art America:

I just spent the day with the incomparable Joey Skaggs! I saw his film and presentation at NYU, and then we went out to dinner and talked about art, pranks, and the universe.

If you dont know who Joey is, you need to check him out. For 50 years, hes been pranking the US and international media, gaining national fame - or perhaps infamy. If you are interested in culture-jamming and media hoaxes, Joey is the undisputed king of hoaxes. Plus, he's a wonderful guy.

MBR: Reviewer's Bookwatch, October 2019

Another review of Willoughby's from the Midwest Book Review:

"This international edition of "Willoughby's World of Wonder", is a unique and entertaining fictional reproduction of the famous 1882 Field Guide to Strange Beasts & Curious Creatures. Overflowing with whimsy and delight from cover to cover, "Willoughby's World of Wonder" features beautiful, black-and-white Victorian engravings printed on fine white paper. Suitable for adults and young adults, "Willoughby's World of Wonder" will enthrall readers of all ages and is unreservedly recommended for personal, community, and academic library collections."

Capital Offenses Gallery Talk by Stephen Barnwell

The video of my Artist's Talk at Monmouth Museum is now up! If you missed the gallery talk, this is your chance to see it. It's a much better talk and video than the last talk at Lock Haven: a refined script, I'm more relaxed, and the audience really enjoyed it. It's almost an hour long, so grab a cup of coffee and settle in!

Stephen Barnwell is one of the premiere money artist in the world. Hear his one-hour gallery talk from his recent solo exhibition, Capital Offenses, at Monmo...
