A challenge to draw and then hand screen print one new art poster every week for an entire year - creating a series of 52 art prints.

About:
Recently a friend of mine asked if I had ever considered printing a new poster each week for an entire year as a challenge or conquest.  After some thought, it seemed like a great concept and art project for 2012.

My name is Karl Addison, I'm an artist.  There are a few things I'm in love with - two of them being drawing and screen printing.  As long as I can remember I have always been drawing.  As for screen printing - I started out in 2003 and have been doing it every since.  The process of screen printing has literally changed the way I draw.  Throughout the years  my drawings have focused on cross hatch, hatch & stippling to create depth and value range with the printing process.  When I work with multiple colors I separate each layer as I draw - essentially creating each screen for each color from the beginning.  

The Project:
During the year 2012 I will hand screen print one new art poster with original artwork every week.  By the end of the year there will be a total of 52 prints in the collection.  Most of these prints will be between 2 and 3 colors.  Some will be 1 color - and a few will be 4 colors or more.  All art posters will be very limited edition of 50 - they will be numbered and signed.

Your Support:
The screen printing process is one of the most rewarding pre-press processes.  However, at the same time it is very labor intensive and finically costly.  Each separate color per artwork takes a few hours to create the screen.  Once the screens are ready they have to be masked and then registered so the colors will align perfectly.  Once all this prep is done it is ready to print.  The inks, emulsion, film positives, screens, paper and misc all add up on the cost.  This is where your support to this project really helps to create the 52 art posters.
