The newest print set by Cloudy Collection has just been released and I am in it. In this set, there are 12 different 6"x 6" 3-color screen prints by 12 unique artists. It is a very special edition with only 50 sets available. That's right, you get 12 individual fine art prints suitable for framing in each set. This print set also happens to be a "2012 Calendar of the Impending Apocalypse". Each artist picked a month and interpreted the theme. Shown above: my own version of what would happen if a giant Krampus took over the earth (month of December).
Artists in this set include: Emory Allen, Joe Alterio, Ana Benaroya, Kali Ciesemier, Amy Crehore, David Huyck, Adam Koford, Joe Lambert, Phil McAndrew, Luke Pearson, Vincent Stall, Jaime Zollars.
