“God’s Lonely Man”
18”x24” Signed & Numbered screenprint
Yesterday marks the film’s 43rd anniversary since it’s release on February 8th, 1976.
I, like every other bitter and young person, LOVED Taxi Driver after I first saw it. When Travis Bickle says “Loneliness has followed me my whole life, everywhere. In bars, in cars, sidewalks, stores, everywhere. There's no escape. I’M GODS LONELY MAN…” I could easily relate. Plus the score by Bernard Hermann was perfect and sadly his last. He passed away after completing it.
The print was originally done for SPOKE ART and their Scorsese show back in 2013. Since then it’s been published in a few books and it hangs in DeNiro’s office at Tribecca Films. Thanks John!!!
While I was working on this and geeking out on every detail of the film and Bickle ’s jacket I noticed the patches and was inspired to make a patch to go along with the print release. That I ended up releasing later cuz life got in the way. CLICK HERE to see the embroidered patch design and the fleece blanket.
