This is a handmade signed limited edition screenprint.
Desperate Dan made his appearance in the first issue of The Dandy the sister comic to The Beano which was dated 4 December 1937. His main characteristic is his strength, he's able to lift a cow with one hand.
The character was created by Dudley D Watkins, originally as an outlaw or 'desperado' (hence his name), but in time he turned into a goodie.
This panel is selected, like many of my panels and images, from before the digital age in fact from a Dandy annual from the 1970s and should make a great gift to anybody who is into retro, vintage, old school design. I tend to choose material from this era because it was the time I was growing up and my tastes and preferences were being formed.
Obviously, as I'm a screenprinter, I'm biased in favour of the handmade, so this style is right up my street. I hope it is yours.
This is a handmade original screenprint: a work of art printed by hand, from a plate, block, stone, or stencil (which is the case here - screenprints are made using screen stencils) that has been created by the artist for the purpose of producing the image.
Signed and numbered out of 200 in pencil by the printer, John Patrick Reynolds.
