Okay so let's try this: people keep asking me how they can get their hands on some of the Assange paintings I've been doing, but if we're going to do that I'd like to find a way to make it work with the unconditional gift economy model I use where I put up all my work for free and then anyone who wants to throw me some money is free to do so.
Another choice for printing may be stickers and labels. Most modern computers have the software to set these up from a picture and or text, even M$ Windows. You can paste them almost anywhere. My favorite locations are lampposts, transit advertising, bumpers and license plates. Of course you need a printer of, if you are among the elect, maybe you can borrow one at "work". Subvert, subvert.
These are powerful and human portrayals of a great, but quite ordinary man. These portraits are a vital and lasting witness to the war on truth and decency thrust on us from above, and the martyr whose shameful treatment has become the symbol of democracy's demise and replacement with the crudest sham. I'd like to see them hugely enlarged on billboards, everywhere.
When I put up my own posters to the effect of FREE JULIAN ASSANGE, almost two years ago, everywhere I went back to look at a couple of days later HAD ALL BEEN REMOVED. It was so weird...and so discouraging to know there were people who felt so threatened by that in my neighbourhood. It was actually creepy....
Stickers will work better. Thank you, Caitlin. You never fail to inspire me, and I feel sure, everyone who follows your indefatigably comprehensive and generous work!

I was thinking that maybe you could use one or two of the Julian portraits to decorate a front of a t-shirt. It would be great to turn up at a protest, strike action,march, or other activity with Julian's face staring out at the crowd. #FreeAssange
This is awesome!!
