Anyone remember a series of 10-20 2-colour prints based on the Chinese revolutionary ballet "the red detachment of women"? Very simple, almost woodcut looking of red and black ink on what looked like newsprint. As I recall there was a Flickr set for a while, I think maybe Persist linked to it.

I've been looking all over for this series to no avail for the last couple of days.

I have no idea what you're talking about, so here's a painting of Sarah Palin with pancakes on her head: http://www.faithmouse.com/sarah_palin_pancakes.jpg

from Chinese stock art, I'm guessing:
