So, there’s this girl. She’s tragically orphaned and richer than anyone on the planet. Every guy she meets falls in love with her, but in between torrid romances she rejects them all because she dedicated to what is Pure and Good. She has genius level intellect, Olympic-athelete level athletic ability and incredible good looks. She is consumed by terrible angst, but this only makes guys want her more. She has no superhuman abilities, yet she is more competent than her superhuman friends and defeats superhumans with ease. She has unshakably loyal friends and allies, despite the fact she treats them pretty badly. They fear and respect her, and defer to her orders. Everyone is obsessed with her, even her enemies are attracted to her. She can plan ahead for anything and she’s generally right with any conclusion she makes. People who defy her are inevitably wrong.
God, what a Mary Sue.

Seriously, though, this is important.
Chris Turnham is a super talented illustrator and printmaker based out of Los Angeles. He has found a way to seamlessly move between illustrative and print-based mediums and we recently had him answer a few questions for our latest printerview!
When did you start printing?
For years I’ve created my own giclee prints and had some screenprints printed by a studio. It wasn’t until a few years ago when I took my first screenprinting class that I started making my own screenprints.
Where do you make your work?
I paint all my illustrations digitally in my apartment. When it comes time to sceenprint I go to Otis College of Art and Design in LA — they have a great print lab and continuing education screenprinting class that I repeatedly take to use the space!
Who would you love to collaborate with?
I’d love to collaborate with the ghost of Miroslav Sasek — his “This Is” books are a huge inspiration.
What are some of favorite places in LA for art and design?
