Some more of my chine colles for your perusal. These were done in 1999 in conjunction with my book premiere of "Bad Men." I had a one-man show at the Desert Caballeros Museum in Wickenburg, Arizona to coincide with the book being published. These layered prints were done at Armstrong-Prior in Phoenix, utilizing antique hand-cranked presses and lots of rusted metal and tin for funky patinas.
Bad Men: "Tall In The Saddle"
Bad Men: "Cornered"
Bad Men: "California Bandidos"
Bad Men: "Curly Bill Yucks It Up"
Bad Men: "Muy Malo Duo"
"Bob Boze Bell is a master at recreating a time, place and a man, utilizing a variety of utilities; his own artwork, ink & watercolor; old photos & engravings; old advertisements, recreated photos, scenes from movies, etc. The melange holds together to form a narrative that comprises a new kind of history. Not scholarship, but almost more illuminating & immediate."
—Gary Zaboly, writing in his journal, after reading The Illustrated Life & Times of Doc Holliday" on December 26, 1996
