NEW! The Albatross Screen Print

The Albatross Screen print - Kris Johnsen 2014 New print available in my online store here. This print came together when I had a design job from a band where I was creating multiple designs for them to choose from, another design got picked and I was left with a few designs. So after this design sat on my computer for a few months I decided to edit it slightly and see how it would turn out as a print.
This is a 1 color print, printed on 140lb Black French Paper. 12.5-12.5in in size.

Birds in a Row on Wooden Panels for Bangor’s The Rock and Art Shop

Dead Bird Paintings - Kris Johnsen 2014
Recently I was asked to take part in a large group art show at the Rock and Art Shop in Bangor, Maine. This is a shop that I sell prints, T’s and patches at and have visited on occasion and is a really amazing place! The idea behind the show is about 30 artists all get 3, 5-5in wood panels to make art on. I decided to keep with a theme I was already working on for the new Blood Warrior album and have these relate. Two of the birds are part of the record packaging and one is an extension of it. The panels do not say Blood Warrior of have any text. I’m really happy with how these came out and they were really fun to work on. The panels are up at the shop now along with many other great artists. Each panel is $50 and only available through the Gallery. I believe there is an Opening/Closing Party for the show on December 5th. Or atleast that is when it is up until. If you are around Bangor please stop by and see my pieces!
