About Evonne Agnello: According the web, Evonne is the author of "Shaking Shame," about dealing with the stigma associated with mental illness. [July 1, 2015 - I am having trouble ascertaining that Ms. Agnello has this print or another artwork. I need more information. -BR]
Artist's Comment: Spanning two years of development and about 75 impressions, Little Spaceship Crash was the seed for a larger work. These came out of the movie, Planet of the Apes. I like to tell the story about the path flown by the helicopter filming it, and then my entry into computers graphics and how I learned the X-Y-Z of IT. This print was test of methods I would need for a larger version, then the tests resulted in an edition that stood on its own.
