Recently I started doing two colored monster prints. I only use two colors for every print. I mix the colors and try to get the biggest range of colors possible. I paint with guache paint using a brush and sometimes a toothbrush and an airbrush. I have made three prints so far, and I want to make a total of at least 10 prints.
I am fascinated by weird and disgusting themes. Eyeballs, tentacles and slime are ongoing themes in my drawings. I hope that my prints will amaze and disgust you at the same time. These 10 prints will be a roller coaster of thrilling disgust and weird emotions.
All prints are made on a Risograph. Risograph is a stencil duplication process, meaning that it is in the same family as Screen Printing. The machine, from the outside, looks just like a photocopier, but the guts are entirely different. Like an offset press, Risograph printers use Plates, or Masters (made from wax paper), which means that it prints one colour/one layer at a time. Each additional layer requires an additional pass through the machine.
The 7000 Danish kroner is enough to print the remaining seven prints. If I get more than that I will be able to make some alternative prints like the orange slime giant. If I reach 10.000 kroner I will add an alternative DIY print. And if I reach 20.000 danish kroner I will add one extra surprise print for everybody who bought a physical print.
I would like to invite you into the creative process. Please feel free to ask questions and leave comments on the Kickstarter page. During this campaign I will be posting pictures on my Instagram profile to show how I work.
The DIY print is exclusively for backers on kickstarter. You will get two image files, one for each color, and you will have to run them through the printer two times. You should be proud of yourself if the two prints are not perfectly aligned, every print should be unique. You will also get instructions to write edition numbers in the corner of the print.
There will be added more prints and rewards throughout the campain.
Thank you so much for your support!
The SLIMEBABIES is not yet made into a print, but it will be one of the 10 prints you can buy! This is the original painting and the sketch (buy them as "slimebabies" rewards).
Risks and challenges
Right now I only fear that I underestimated the cost and the time it takes to pack, label and send all the prints...Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
