I’m really excited about the opening of Green Pea Press, because I’ll finally have a place to print my blocks whenever I need, instead of having to wait for an opportunity. Because of the opening, and because the Huntsville Museum of Art had a print exhibit up this month, we were invited to demonstrate printmaking techniques. People were invited to pull their own prints, make tshirts, all the best parts of printmaking. I was able to print my newest relief block, the Franktopus, and just have a good time doing what I love. Thanks so much Rachel for inviting me.
I wanted to show off a design for an Ameressiah shirt. The image is from the Mole Men relief block you can see in the gallery, I scanned it and isolated it in Photoshop. I’m still playing with the text, so comments are welcome.
I haven’t made a page yet for this subject, but there are designs for almost all of my work that’s meant to fit on a tshirt. I think it’s a nice way to get art somewhere people will see it, and the price is right for most people who like my stuff. If you can’t afford a $100 print of the Ninja-Christ fighting Mole-Men, you can probably afford a $20 shirt of the just the Creationist Super Savior.
The Mole Men might deserve their own stand alone piece. I think the fur turned out nicely and they are kinda of retro-adorable, in a B-movie monster sort of way. Although after that block is actually finished with the comic book text added the Ameressiah is due to face-off with the terrible Darwin Monkey, so we’ll see what his schedule permits.
