Oh Expletive is a project of epic epicness. It is a series of illustrations about ass kicking and mayhem — from zombies to unicorns to knife fights to flame throwers — the series consists of some of the most awesome things life has to offer.

The illustrations were mostly made last fall and were shown at a couple of galleries in Phoenix, Arizona, and now we (James and I) would like to adapt these illustrations into beautiful, limited run, handmade screen prints and t-shirts. And we'd like your support to make this happen. 

In return you get to be part of a very small group of individuals who will own these handmade screen prints and t-shirts. The plan is to make a small number of high quality prints and t-shirts that will be produced just once, and will be one of a kind.

There are a total of 9 print options. Each print will be made by hand, signed and numbered. All prints are 8.5 x 11 in size and printed on heavyweight matte paper. 

Please Note: These illustrations are a work in progress and I'll continue to tweak things a little bit. The final illustrations may look slightly different.

UPDATE: There are now a total of 6 t-shirt options (instead of just 4). The designs will be printed on high quality Next Level t-shirts. 

The designs will be printed on high quality Next Level t-shirts. Sizes range from Small to XXL. Men's shirts come in one style and women's shirts have the  option of a scoop neck or a deep v-neck.

Crystal Phelps is a print-maker from the Midwest who's artistic voice took root while living in the Arizona desert. Her work has transformed from focusing on traditional printmaking processes to mixed media and collaborative works.

The Lab 137 is a retail design and production workshop for local makers, that facilitates entrepreneurial experimentation. A portion of the profits from each sale of our locally designed products are used toward the purchase of materials and equipment for our community workshop.

Thank you so much for reading this and considering backing this project. If there are any questions we haven't answered yet, please send us a message. Backing this project will surely make your friends say "OH $#@&! I WANT ONE!" Or, at least, we hope that they say that.

P.S. The music used in the video is from Nine Inch Nails' fantastic album Ghosts I-IV that you can get here.
