The Martian Chronicles at Ltd. Art Gallery

TAnderson-MartianChronicles-Blog.jpg

I have loved Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles ever since my Dad introduced me to it sometime in junior high, and I’ve always wanted to do an series of illustrations based on the various short stories collected therein. Ltd. Art Gallery‘s upcoming show, “A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words” featuring works based on literature presented the perfect opportunity for me to finally take a stab at this great collection of short stories. The show will open on November 8, with pieces available online shortly thereafter on their site (I’ll post an updated link to that on FB and Twitter once they’re up for sale online).

 

Here are some more details on the piece itself:

12″x24″, 4-color screen print on 100# French Tangy Orange Pop-Tone paper.

Limited edition Signed and Numbered run of 30

 

And here are some photos. Lady Lazarus did a fantastic job printing these up!

The Walking Dead at Hero Complex Gallery

On Friday, October 11, Hero Complex Gallery will be opening their official Walking Dead show, and from the previews I’ve seen so far, it’s going to be a great show! Though, to be honest, when has Hero Complex Gallery NOT put on a great show?

The piece I’ll have there is kind of a spiritual follow-up to my Breaking Bad piece, the second in a series I’m unofficially “Glowing Personalities.” This time, Merle Dixon gets the spotlight, taking on a new identity when the lights go out.

 12”x16” 3-color (with GID) screen print, hand-printed by me.
Rives BFK, White Sheet, 250gsm paper
Run of 20, Signed &Numbered

Salt Lake Comic Con Exclusive: Darth Vader TIE Advanced Screen Print

I will be setting up a booth at the first-ever Salt Lake Comic Con this weekend, September 5-7 (#913, come on by if you’re in the area!), and I wanted to do something special for my first con! As you may remember, my Dad and I collaborated on some Star Wars vehicle blueprint-inspired illustrations, but I only had time then to tackle some of the Rebellion vehicles from the Battle of Yavin. Well, I decided to revive that series a bit and move on to my favorite Imperial fighter: Darth Vader’s TIE Advanced!

To make it extra special, I decided to make this piece my second-ever hand-screen printed project and made it a bit more ambitious than my first attempt. Specs and photos below:

 

“Darth Vader TIE Advanced”

$45, limited edition 12″ x 18″, 5 color screen print, featuring 3 metallic inks, printed on 90lb Stonehenge Natural stock, edition of 77. If there are any prints remaining after the con, they will be made available on my store page.

My first hand-printed screen print!

m4s0n501

I’ve recently learned a very important lesson: screen printing is hard. Like, really hard. I’ve always loved the quality of a good screen print, but I now realize that I’ve been largely unaware of the immense potential for catastrophe inherent in the process of screen printing. There are so many steps that have to be done just right or else any errors will snowball into a disaster that is only apparent once it’s too late to fix the earlier mistakes.

Not long ago, I was inspired by the fantastic Bruce Yan to try my hand at screen printing. I’ve been learning a lot about designing for screen printing, and I figured it would help to wrap my head around it if I tried doing some actual prints myself. So I looked through my notebooks and sketchbooks for an idea that would make for a good experimental printing project, and I came upon a sketch I had done for one of my all-time favorite shows:  AMC’s Breaking Bad.  A DIY screen print would be a perfect homage to the makeshift nature of much of what occurs on Breaking Bad (my kids even refer to my storage-room-turned-workshop as the “Secret Lab”).

I won’t go into the details of the production snags I hit while printing, but I can say that I learned a lot about screen printing. Mostly about what not to do while screen printing.  I am pleased to say, however, that I was successful in creating a number of prints that I am quite proud of, and I am excited to finally share them!

I’ll share more details pertaining to sale info within the next couple of days, so stay tuned. For now, here’s a glimpse at my first-ever hand-printed screen print, and my first-ever design to feature glow-in-the-dark (GID) ink:
