2 color screenprint on French 100lb cover, 24"x18", 2017
The print is based off a painting I made earlier this year. The reference is from a 70's action figure called Mr. Muscle. I wanted to make a blue and red painting that was simple and vibrating.
While James Ulmer’s (Philadelphia) drawings may evoke memories of childhood innocence, their complexity and precision belie the notions of simplicity or nostalgia. Beautifully and carefully made, they convey both his talents as a draftsman, and his understanding of how to convey emotion. Ulmer graduated from the University of the Arts in 2005 with a degree in Illustration and Design and was awarded the Thorton Oakly Medal by the Society of Illustrators. Ulmer was a member of the Philadelphia’s legendary Space 1026 Collective from 2008-2011. Ulmer recently had a drawing published in the New York Times. He has exhibited his work in New York, Austin, Texas, and Baltimore, MD and Stockholm Sweden. The artist is currently living and working in Brooklyn.
