artConnect January 2011: Michelle Murdock

Art inspires passion, charity gives hope, and creating synergy between the two can transform lives. We think that's a pretty cool superpower to have. So, each month Reno Type commissions one piece of art from a local Nevada artist. The art is produced in a limited edition print that you can buy here on the website—50% of the proceeds go to a charity of the artists choice.

This print started as a pen and ink drawing, lettered by hand. It was shot to film from which a photo-polymer plate was made. It was printed on a 1967 Vandercook by the artist, and then hand tinted. Each piece is truly one-of-a-kind.
