New ‘Gather the Believers’ art print

Gather the Believers art print - Kris Johnsen 2014
The last few months I’ve been working on an art print version of this years Last Night On Earth gig poster. I decided to do a small art print version because I actually messed up the first layer on about 50 of the original gig posters where I printed the image to low on the paper but the print was still good so I decided to keep them around for after the whole printing process of the gig poster to print an art print addition and I added two layers to it that are not on the gig poster to separate the two even further. I’m really happy with how both posters came out and its one of my favorite posters I’ve made in recent history and besides that mishap with the first layer the print, printed very well!
These prints are $30 and you can pick them up at my Etsy Store.
They ended up being a 8 layer Print measuring 18in.-21in. with an edition of 47.

Grain Surdboards Surf Re-evolution Painting

Grain Surfboards - Art Piece - Kris Johnsen 2012

(Please click on image to view full size.)

Just finished up this piece for Grain Surfboards Surf Re-Evolution in York, Maine on Sept 9th and 10th. Myself along with a small group of artists were all sent pieces cut off pieces of wood from surf boards, it started out as a 8in.-10in. panel and I basically got to do whatever I wanted on it. I chose to make a painting, something of which I have not done since art school really. I chose to paint the panel with water color and acrylic paints with a screen print over it, mainly because I’m more comfortable with those mediums then oils and also I did not have time to let the oils dry since I had to ship this out the other day. If your interested it’ll be on display at the event and for sale also if you feel so inclined to own a very rare painting by me. But who knows, this may have sparked me to want to paint more.

The Pete kilpatrick band album art preview

For the last month or so I’ve been working on album art for the Portland, ME band The Pete Kilpatrick Band for their new album called Heavy Fire. I’m making a 4 panel case with an 8 page lyrics booklet. I’m really happy with how it’s coming out and will hopefully be done by weeks end. I will also be working on a limited edition screen printed poster for their Album Release shows in the next month. View their current tour dates here.

Above are a few snap shots from the making of the album artwork.
