Artist Statement

"Art is what happens in that meaningful space between an artist's intention and the viewers' perception. That the message might be different sent than it is received makes it truly worthy of discussion. I think that this preference for difference in interpretation may have less to do with Margaret Wheatley's unique perspective... But the quote does relate well to what 1200 Posters is all about: the creation of a community around a love for images and image-making. I hope that the idea of a self-renewing conversation may come across in my own image. My process is pretty typical of lots of editorial folks today, in that some of it happens in the physical world, and the rest on the desktop. I often like to think of my images as screen-prints, so I'll begin by establishing the structure of the drawing, then make color layers in the here and now as you would with rubylith. Sometimes I make a gray painting that I can color later. I also keep a store of masks and textures to use and re-use in a file on my computer. I like to draw with a drawing board at my kitchen counter, on our couch, and on the living room floor. My home is my studio, and I wouldn't have it any other way." - Wesley Allsbrook

About 1200 Posters

1200 Posters was one of Creative Action Network's first campaigns, originally inviting 12 up-and-coming artists to illustrate 1 of 12 quotes about community, conversation and collaboration from Margaret Wheatley's text "Turning to One Another".

About our Prints

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.
