Bob's Burgers Artist Offers Limited Edition Silk Screen Print Set


Frank Forte is an artist on Bob's Burgers, which is what the kids would call a big hit. He's also put in work on Despicable Me 2, Heavy Metal Magazine and Lego: Star Wars. Now, he's aiming to create three limited edition signed fine art prints. And there's a Kickstarter for it. He sets out to raise $500 on Kickstarter to finish artwork and produce the limited edition prints at Family Industries, a silk screen printer in Los Angeles, CA.

The first two prints are entitled "THE CARTOON CAT" in pink and blue versions--a hand-printed, six-color silk screen on a heavy, 140lb. paper stock. A limited edition run of 100 (60 of each available on Kickstarter)--signed by Frank Forte with his thumbprint on the back---ships rolled in a tube. Printed at Family Industries (LA, CA) by master printer Joe Herbick. Frank is selling them at an introductory price of $80 each and the extra copies will sell at art galleries and on his website http://www.frankforte.com for $100.00.

The third print is entitled "MOLLY'S NIGHTMARES" as hand-printed, four-color silk screen on a heavy, 140lb. paper stock. A limited edition of 50--signed by Frank Forte with thumbprint on the back---ships rolled in a tube. It's also printed at Family Industries by master printer Joe Herbick. Frank is selling them at an introductory price of $60 each and the extra copies will sell at art galleries and on his website http://www.frankforte.com for $80.00
