Mondo Sumo - 1998
Michael Bedard's world-famous duck steps from the drawing board...on to this first-of-its-kind Collector's limited Edition on Canvas. With conflict between the duck and the alligator as well as the looser facing the sharks, our heroic duck stands ready to tak on the overwhelming odds that life presents, fully confident that he will walk away the winner of this allegorical situation. You will sit back and only imagine yourself in his shoes or flippers.
"Mondo Sumo" is an individually signed and numbered giclee on canvas. It is a Limited Edition of 250 impressions and 30 Artist's Proofs in an image size of 30"X30" Portico Stone Framing with gold accent trim was chosen to compliment the theme of the alligator. The Portico Stone framing is available in your choice of muted blue or muted green.
Frame size is 35"X35".

Anticipation - 1989
The produced silk screen of this piece had the reflection of a duck in the eyes of the alligator. The story behind this piece goes like this:
What you see is a brown "alligator" and the reflection of a duck in the "alligator's" eyes walking toward it.  The reflection becomes bigger as the duck nears.  Soon, a large shadow approaches and begins to envelope the "alligator".  The "alligator" begins to run in fear!  You end up seeing a giant duck standing over, what first appeared to be a brown alligator turn out to be just a small brown lizard!

Ship of Fools - 1992
Once again, Michael Bedard distills to the very essence, the reality of our times with his sophisticated, humorous, social commentary on environmental issues. Oblivious to the ominous storm about to engulf their life boat, the ducks ignore their circumstance and continue to party while littering the surrounding seas.
"Ship of Fools" is an individually pencil-signed and numbered offset lithograph printed on Limoge 100% archival paper. It is a Limited Edition of 450 impressions and 50 Artist's Proofs in an image size of 23"x28".
Due to the turbulent seas, it was fitting to use a sculpted frame that would accent the "Ship of Fools". This frame was hand finished in Rome from the Cascade line. Ivory Dupioni Silk matting highlighted by a Teal Silke fillet graces this unique image. Dupioni Silk was chosen for both its texture and archival properties. For the most concervation conscious, Image Perfect U/V filtering glass completes this Collector's Choice.
