    Thumbs up The Art Lab - Printmaking on wheels

    Hey guys,

    I wanted to let you know that I relaunched my mobile letterpress and printmaking studio project on Kickstarter. If you saw my post before I tried to launch this project last November/December but realized that as excited as people were, it was the holidays and that dampered the ability of people to back the project. So, I put the project on hold and started to focus on other things.

    Then out of the blue, 3 weeks ago, a gentleman up in MI emailed me pictures of the 1954, art deco moving van that his father bought in 1957. It is in perfect running condition road worthy, and up for purchase. So I decided that it must be a sign. It is exactly what I have been looking for for this project.


    Well, I revamped the project, lowered the goal to just what it would take to get the vehicle here from MI and put the project up on Kickstarter. I even sold my 8 x 10 C&P letterpress to john Brown University in Arkansas to help fund the build out on the inside. Don't worry, I have other letterpress machines so printing can continue as normal! I also have most of the equipment and supplies to go into the van so once I get the vehicle, I can get it outfit this winter, and be up and running by spring 2013, giving hands-on demos of letterpress and other forms of printmaking.

    So the van is going to have table top presses for small poster work, screen equipment for shirt and paper prints, and an area for cutting linoleum and setting wood type. I would love to print live and community events and festivals!

    I just need some help getting over the last hurdle. If you think that this idea is worthy of backing I could use the support and some extra help to get the word out. If you have time I would love for you to check out the link and let me know what you think.

    So here is what the 1954 Fageol van looks like. It's a quick photoshop but it gives you the idea.

    Sweet van. Convert it to biodiesel on you could probably run it off of the linseed oil in your ink.

    Biodiesel would be cool! I also love those vandercook images. One of my inspirations for this build.

    Rolling into the last few days of the Art Lab Kickstarter. I added a cool reward for the poster crowd out there. Want to have your design letterpress printed? If you do go check out the new backer reward. I would love to print a limited edition run of one of your posters! go click the link in the first post and it will take you to the project.
