From Ducky Waddles:
"We at Ducky Waddle's have been fortunate to show and sell his work for the last eight years and he will be returning on July 15th for a gallery show "HARD COPY" featuring his silkscreen prints on aluminum, each in limited editions of 2 or 3, and I have picked out 20 outstanding images for the show all of which are long out of print in their standard paper editions."
This show was notable for the sheer volume, quality, and scarcity of the art work present. It was a treasure-trove of long out-of-print graphics available in their rarest form for a price ($500.00) that some of their 200-300 print run paper versions have attained. Prior to the show, Jerry Waddle was able to acquire additional aluminum prints bringing the total number available to 33 (including multiples of Chuck, Flav, Warhol, and Hendrix), many of which sold out prior to even being hung.
