    $150. Why Do I Still Have Eyes? + Allan Graham/John Connell “Bouncing Buddha” print. Edition of six, signed and hand-numbered. 23 x 15 ½ inches. Unframed. The print will be shipped within 30 days after the Kickstarter has ended, though the book portion of the reward won’t be shipped until April 2014.

    Shortly before John Connell passed away he was planning a collaborative project with the artist Allan Graham (also known as Toadhouse). It was called “The Bouncing Buddha Project” and was to consist of buddhas cast in rubber by John Connell that were to go with word-pieces by Allan Graham. John Connell completed the initial studies and Allan Graham made this limited edition poster from one of these studies. It is an edition of six, printed on high-quality archival paper. The measurements are 23 x 15 ½ inches. Unframed. The John Connell writing reads: "Buddha (Hotei) round & compassionate". The print will be shipped within 30 days after the Kickstarter has ended, though the book portion of the reward won’t be shipped until April 2014.
