Incarcerated Scarfaces

by Morgan de Lorenzo

Do Your Time, book three of the six part series Incarcerated Scarfaces.

Incarcerated Scarfaces, a six part lithography zine, is a critique on the criminal justice system that portrays the psychological harm incarceration has on both the individual and the community at large. By using a blend of traditional illustration and themes of modern dystopia, de Lorenzo reveals an absurd world in which the seemingly foredoomed subjects navigate a rigged system, forever trapped in a cycle of conflict.

Do your Time is the third zine in the series. This installment contains twelve pages of original lithographic prints hand rendered with gouache on Rives BFK, and hand bound into a limited edition of 10.

This original artist book is available to purchase as a ready-to-print PDF file which is available here.

Incarcerated Scarfaces 是由六组石板印刷的册子组成的。这部作品批判美国的刑事司法系统,并描绘了监禁给个人和社会带来的心理创伤。de Lorenzo运用传统插画和现代反乌托邦的主题揭示了一个怪异的世界。在这个世界中看似命中注定的物件主导着一个被操纵的系统,永远被困在冲突的循环中。

Do Your Time 是 Incarcerated Scarfaces 系列中的第三本书。单册包含十二页在Rives BFK纸上用石板印刷的原图,用水粉颜料手工上色再装订成册。限量十本。
