They have been sitting in print drawers since then. Paper and Ink look like it was printed this morning, but it wasn't, it was printed in 1994.
It is printed on thin paper. There is some reflection in the photo lower left edge next to the rear tire that is not on the poster.

He described his system of working as open-minded.
He rarely planned out a composition - often he just started with abstract shapes and looked for interesting arrangements to build realistic elements into. When a did job required planning, it would be more in the form of preliminary research.As far as the actual method of execution, Bartell said. The job dictates the method of portraying the thought. If the subject suggests delicacy, I start with a delicate medium, or if forceful, I may begin painting an abstraction with black paint.
