My name is Tom Dewar and I'm a Seattle based poster artist. I've been designing and screen printing rock 'n roll show posters and art prints in Seattle for nearly 15 years and now it's time I upgrade from a simple art studio to owning a screen print shop. My new print shop, Supercharger Press, will also double as my art studio where I will continue to produce my own art as well as print art for other artists. There are a few big ticket items I need to purchase for my new print shop and with your generous contribution, I can make it a reality. At different reward levels, I'm offering pieces from a new series of screen prints titled "Indian Summer" and its sister series "Cocaine Cowboys". A few other Kickstarter EXCLUSIVE items will also be available! Please take a look at my rewards and thank you for checking out my Kickstarter!

Thanks so much to the amazing Macklemore for the support!! 

"Not too long ago I was a Seattle artist financially struggling to make the art I knew I was put on Earth to create... Seattle stood up and supported our kickstarter, concerts, and merchandise that allowed us to invest to make our dream a reality. Support your local artisans, it enriches community, makes you feel good, and makes others feel good. Today I donated to Tom Dewar, a Seattle friend and artist. Check him out!" --- Macklemore 

Risks and challenges

I have a local vendor who deals in nearly ALL the supplies I need for my new print shop. All I need to do is buy the equipment from them. The biggest potential obstacle I can see is the electrician possibly taking a few more days than quoted to install the 3-phase electric for my press. If that's the case, my backers will still receive their rewards by February 2014, maybe sooner.
