On Sunday June 24, 2012, the project Papermen came full circle when the Winston-Salem Journal published an intense single image of newspaper hawker appeared as a full double page original limited edition in the local news section.

Art is normally encountered by those who seek it out. This original limited edition image created a platform beyond the gallery exhibition, where art entered the lives of an unsuspecting public of 50,000 in circulation that Sunday. This first time action provoked curiosity and questions, in a context only the newspaper as an object could provide. By placing this artwork in the pages of the daily news, it raises questions such as: Is it news? If so, what is it telling us? Is it an advertisement? If so, what is it selling? If this image is none of these things, what is its purpose? This hawker's piercing gaze into the reader challenges the public's perception of all of these aspects of communication, and that 'seeing' and connecting with the familiar from a new perspective can become part of everyone's everyday.
