“ Two years he walks the earth. No phone, no pool, no pets, no cigarettes. Ultimate freedom. An extremist. An aesthetic voyager whose home is the road. Escaped from Atlanta. Thou shalt not return, 'cause "the West is the best." And now after two rambling years comes the final and greatest adventure. The climactic battle to kill the false being within and victoriously conclude the spiritual pilgrimage. Ten days and nights of freight trains and hitchhiking bring him to the Great White North. No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild. "
Alexander Supertramp, May 1992
This piece began as an illustrated poster paying tribute to the great biographical adventure by Jon Krakauer, adapted into the film by Sean Penn.
Steelarchive later released a limited edition Blu-ray of the film including a slip case featuring my original artwork. This edition of 500 is now sold out.
Enjoy the Ride Records recently released the original score on vinyl also featuring my artwork which you can buy here.
