The Mutation of Atom, the latest in an ongoing series of silkscreened pop culture mashup art from acclaimed rock poster artist Dave Berns is available for pre-order. Limited to a first printing of only 130 pieces (3 Editions of 100, 20 & 10) orders for these hand-printed, signed and numbered collectable art prints will be filled in ascending order on a first-come, first-served basis. Additionally, a run of 4"x3" screenprinted vinyl stickers will be made for sale and a limited selection of existing works have been included to help push the campaign over-the-top.

THE MUTATION OF ATOM

Godzilla/Sistine Chapel Mashup Serigraph Art Print
24x18 5-color (Indigo, Metallic Silver, Florescent Blue, Florescent Red & Florescent Yellow)
100 STANDARD Edition on House White paper - $30
20 METALLIC Edition on Curious White Metallic paper - $60
10 AWAGAMI Edition on Awagami Chiri paper  - $100

The Mutation of Atom is a tounge-in-cheek extension of the nuclear Armageddon allegory ever present in the G-thing's history. This power will burn you, it creates only destruction.

Hot Damn Arts' ongoing output of pop art parody prints are where Dave Berns' gets his one-man Mad Magazine meets Wacky Packages by way of Warhol on. A series of artworks where the ephemera of youth and fandom are skillfully spliced and diced into wonderful new things that build on and pay loving tribute to their roots.

Risks and challenges

Final art is complete and ready to print, I have a good rhythm going with my printer of note, Screwball Press and the goal is super modest. Sticker Robot can take a while to deliver smaller orders (size of print run will depend on campaign success), so stickers may be delivered later than and in separate deliveries from prints.
