It’s no secret that we’re superfans of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so in celebration of the iam8bit 15th Anniversary, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Skybound and a bunch of really awesome artists for a limited edition print series. We’re kicking things off with one of our all-time favorite illustrators, the incomparable Jim Rugg (Street Angel, the PLAIN Janes), who sets some seriously retro vibes with this “black light responsive” screenprint. It’s unlike any print we’ve released before because of this special sensitivity, which provides for a really cool fluorescent pop of color. 

What’s screen-printing? It’s an archival printing method that deploys  individual layers of ink via “screens” to produce vibrant and detailed artwork. The layers are deliberately ordered, as to interact with each other to create new color combinations and complexities that would otherwise be impossible in standard printing. The inks used are specially mixed to Jim Rugg’s specifications to achieve maximum perfection.

What’s a “Timed Release”? This means this print will only be available for a very limited time, and it’s production run will be determined by the number of orders received. After October 13th, 2020, this edition will be closed and the print will never be produced again. This is, quite literally, your only opportunity to acquire this beauty!
