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.

Picnic Summer 2014 Re-cap

Picnic Summer 2014 was almost 2 weeks ago now but I’m just getting around to looking at the pictures I took. Picnic was great this year! One of the best for sure. Sales were great, set up was pretty easy, customers and seeing friends was great and also amazing bands played all day!
I had lots of new things available this year and was happy to offer things besides just prints. Thanks to anyone who picked up a tshirt or balsam fir pouch, I was most excited for those! Also if you grabbed a $5 print you win for deal of the day!
This was one of the first time I took my camera around and shot some pictures. I will never claim to be a good photographer but I do enjoy documenting events like this! Please enjoy and share these pictures if there is someone you may know in one of them.
