Jon E. Allen. Part-time printmaker, full-time superhero living and working in Akron, OH
I earned my Bachelors of Arts degree in Printmaking and Painting from Kent State University in December 2005 along with an assortment of awards and accolades that look good on a resumé. I spent the next years fine-tuning the skills necessary to produce my current media environment.
This set was originally created about 6-7 years ago, originally offered as an 11x17" digital print for a gallery exhibition in Lakewood, OH. Now, since getting into printmaking, I want to reproduce this set as a limited edition screen print set. This 3-color poster set will be screen printed by some good pals at The Half and Half on 100# paper from the French Paper Company. Artwork will ship rolled in a sturdy Yazoo tube, with Kraft paper. Minimum edition is 150 - but will be determined by the final amount of backers.
I'm getting married in August, so funds will go towards printing, shipping materials and production expenses. My fiancé would make me sleep outside if I used funds devoted towards the wedding to fund this project. That's why I'm asking you to help bind the galaxy together!
May the Force be with you!
Risks and challenges
All artwork is separated and ready to be sent to the printer. Once successfully funded, I will send the final art to the print shop, and turnaround time is 2-3 weeks following approval. The following week I will sign and number each piece, and ship them out to each and everyone.
I have shipped over 1,200 mailing tubes full of beautiful art over the past 5 years, and I take care of each and every piece.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
