Noamkin - Issue One

Noamkin - Issue One
DIY Handmade Comic Book: Limited Production!

This is the first issue of my Noamkin comic book. I have been working on it for close to a year now. The whole concept is very un-traditional for the comic book industry. I took pages upon pages of my illustrations, scanned them in, turned them to vector images then laid out the story board with all of the illustrated elements. This story line was written after the pages were put together. You could say that what unfolds in Noamkin’s adventures is improvised. I’m really proud of this whole project and hope that you will love it as much as I do!

Story Line: Noamkin the hero has his best friend Nun-Chuck Vegas. Nun-Chuck Vegas becomes victim to an evil plot by evil ninjas. It is up to Noamkin to save the day, kill ninjas, get his friend back by any means necessary and be the hero he was meant to be… or not. The story line is rich in ups and downs that will sway your emotional tide like the ocean’s currents.

Illustration of the Day: Tuesday the 19th, Dec, 06

I just came across this illustration I did a few months back. It's one that I colored in which is pretty rare for me to do. I did a whole series of these characters. I thought it was pretty awesome in a really fucked up way. I'm calling it "The Murder."

Today's Illustration: 121806

Here is the inside page right after the cover of Noamkin. It has a great first start with Nun Chuck Vegas & Noamkin. Nun Chuck Vegas is already drunk and spilling his drink of choice, while Noamkin is swinging his swords around and talking. If I had swords I would swing them around all day too.

Comic Book: Elements:

I thought it would be fun to show all the elements to "Noamkin." Here they all are in Illustrator. I'm sure I will have a lot more, but this is a ton to do one comic.

Illustration of the Day: 121506

Here is another hand drawing for my comic book "Noamkin." This is the scene when our semi hero "Nun Chuck Vegas" is coming back as a zombie banana.

Illustration of the Day:

I'm trying to get in the habit of posting one of my illustrations every day. I think that would be pretty rad, so you can something cool (or at least I think it is).

Here it is: This is going to be one of the panels in my new comic book that I'm working on. Enjoy!

Rad new painting of "The Sasquatch"

Oh man, I'm I ever happy with this totally rad painting of Sasquatch. I figured it would be awesome to have a full series to the line. The painting is pretty amazing. The grass has a lot of texture in it. The clouds are silver with circle strokes so they have texture as well. And, Sasquatch has a ton of paint that is super thick with texture. I used hard lines to draw in the details so it was very illustrated. A cool style of both in my opinion.

Here are some pictures and the description that I posted.


"Did you think you had enough Sasquatch fan-memorabilia yet? No? Well good then. The big hairy footed friend of ours is now on a big awesome painting. Hand painted and hand illustrated, it is a big bad piece you don't want to mess around with. Sasquatch has a lot of built up texture for his fine hair, use your fingers to stroke him. Silver clouds are a symbol of his lifestyle and what is on the horizon. Sport a hoody to work, buy grocery with your Sasquatch tote bag, come home to drink some tea with this large and in charge painting. Really, what more is there in life? A Sasquatch poster! Collect them all and be a winner. No one wants to be a loser. Only ONE OF THESE! Signed on the back. Artwork by Karl Addison"

Creepy Doll Babies that I Illustrated

I have had these drawings for awhile now. The second for a top turned in to a painting I did awhile back. It is posted on my site and sold quickly. Here are the other three that were in the series, I think they are awesome but I do not know what I want to do with them yet. Maybe turn them in to a cool object some how? Not sure, but I will think of something for sure!

Newsletter: Dec 06

Hello everyone,

Wow, I don't even know where to start. There is a ton going on right now. I have a TON of new artwork, a new BLOG (which I'm using right now), a sale going on and much, much more. I guess I will dive right in!

Don’t forget, my artwork is PERFECT for gifts this holiday season!

New Artwork: I have three new designs that have been posted in the last week or so. I'm totally in love with all three of them, and everything they are printed on. There is the new Intestants artwork which is intestines with ants running around inside. This has been printed on a girl t shirt, guy t shirt, tote bags & limited edition poster. The next artwork is The Magnificent Robot Wizard. It’s a three color print job that is amazing. There is a GOLD ink used for it. So if you want a bling, bling robot wizard this is your choice to be. This artwork has been printed on a girl t shirt, guy t shirt & tote bags. The last artwork that just got released is my Sasquatch drawing. Everyone should love big foot, and if you don’t you are a “hater.” Sasquatch has been printed on hoodies to keep you warm during the winter months, tote bags & limited edition posters.

BLOG: A new section and edition to my site is my BLOG. I’m very excited to have this so I can have daily or bi-daily updates. Anyone that wants to can come check out what is going on or what I’m working on. This way I don’t have to send out daily emails and bother everyone’s email account. So, if you are totally in to what I do please sign up on my BLOG to be notified of new posts. Don’t forget that you can write comments as well.

SALE: I have a holiday SALE going on right now. If you order two t shirts you will be able to get 20% your total order! When you are checking out make sure to enter “holidayspecial.” This is perfect for the season, for the holiday season and gift giving.

Noamkin Comic: This amazing project of mine has been going a little bit slower then I wanted it to. I have 75% of all my artwork scanned in. All I need to do now is start putting the pages together then publish it. I decided last night that I’m going to make a downloadable version of this comic book. So you will have the choice to either get the e-comic or the real thing! Technology is amazing!

Contest Winner: The winner for November 06 is Shirley Y, congratulations! (don’t forget you can sign-up for my free contest every month for a new chance to win.)

Without further a due, here are some pictures of my latest artwork. Thanks for taking the time to read this super long news letter.

New BIO for my work!

Here it is... enjoy:

Are you looking for another “hipster” apparel/clothing company to look totally “hip?” If you are, you have come to the wrong residence my friend.

This site, and my work is of a different vain. If you are a big fan of original artwork in different mediums then you have come to the correct place. I started my website in 2003 after drawing two robots that a lot of people fell in love with. These famous robots became known as the “Partybots.” was founded shortly after and became a collection of my screen printing, illustration, design and fine art.

The artwork you will find here will change very often and suddenly. When I sell out of my limited run work it will never be recreated the same way twice. If the same artwork is reused the colors, positioning, schemes, placement & artwork evolves to preserve my one of a kind motto. Any of the one of a kind painting and artwork is gone once it’s sold. All of my creative printing, painting & production is done in-house and is DIY. This allows me to use a variety of mediums such as apparel, bags, books, posters, paintings & other original artwork.

I’m a big advocate for our environment and natural surroundings. Because of my in-house production, it has given me the opportunity to use methods that are less harmful and far safer for everyone and everything. For my screen printing I use biodegradable, soy based cleaning chemicals. In addition to the chemicals I use, I do not use aerosol spray adhesives to keep apparel fastened onto the printing platens. Instead; a natural water based garment glue is my choice. For a lot of my other work I re-use and recycle anything that I possibly can.

Because I care about our world, I am proud to say that I took the time to search for a way to create my unique, one of a kind work using materials that is non-toxic. I discovered a company that makes some of the best solvents in the world for screen printers and not only do they use the latest technology but they are made from a natural renewable resource – soybeans! These rad solvents help reduce hazardous waste, comply with environmental regulations and take into account the health and safety of the people who work with them daily. I feel good about supporting this company by using their products and by wearing my art, you can, too!

"I saw karl's partybots probably about 2 years ago. Though his designs are funny at first glace, a deeper looks shows that he is full of talent with a unique imagination."justin (

“Karl Addison brings an unmatched fire and vision to his art. Always two steps ahead of contempories, his fanciful designs bring a knowing smile to those who know him.” - The Lebanon Robotics Team (Tina Casagrand, Katie Stoll, etc.)

“Quirky, ethereal, realistic, bizarre --- everything I love in artwork! Partybots has not only unique and one-of-a-kind stuff, they are mindbenders. Wear them or hang them and be weird! And cool. And nice to the earth!” - Marci F. (“f” is for fucking awesome)

"I had one of my best days ever...wearing my Partybots." - 33

Sledding Time!

ok.... now it's time to go have some fun and go sledding. This is going to be freakin awesome!

bags are done, MRW is done and I'm sleepy

damn, i'm sleepy. The second I got home I spent all night printing up some new artwork on shirts and bags. Now it's 12am... and I feel like I did not get jacked done. For whatever reason I had all these crazy problems with my press and getting my artwork to line up. Frustrating how that happens when you are sleepy.Here are some pictures of the bags I printed. I don't have a model for the shirts.

Favor please:

I'm in the process of rewriting my bio for my work and website. I had the idea to add a few friend's comments about my work in general.

If you are a fan of what I do, and have a few momments will you please write something up about my artwork in general and send it to me please? I'm going to go through the ones I get and post them at the end of my bio on my site.

thanks a lot in advance!

The reprinting of sweet, sweet bags:

Until going to Stitch this year I had a lot of cool bags. However, sold out and that section on my site has been empty. Don’t despair; I’m re-printing a bunch of them. There will be five new bags posted shortly.

Nun-Ped: With the new artwork, black ink on a tote bag with black handles.

Intestant: Printed with brown and red ink, on a tote bag with black handles.

Rib-Hart: Printed with GOLD ink, on a tote bag with black handles.

The Magnificent Wizard: Printed with purple, yellow and black ink; on a tote bag with black handles.

Sasquatch: Printed with red, white & black ink, on a tote bag with black handles.

I believe I will get three of these posted in the next day or two. The other bags will be posted shortly once I burn my screens.

At this point I'm really hoping that most of you have seen my new shirt on my site. If not I would suggest going and checking it out. The artwork is totally awesome, the girl and guy shirts turned out AMAZINGLY well.

I would love you hear your feedback and comments.

Snowball Fight!

Oh man, so last night after I printed up the SWEET ASS Intestant shirts (if you have not seen them you really need to... they are amazing). Jesse, Jude, Travis & I all went to this park a block away and had a MASSIVE snowball fight. It was soooo much fun to run around, make snowballs and throw them at each other. AMAZING.

We also built a snowman. Then we found some other people's snowmen that they built. We added our snowman to their snowman to make a MEGA snowman. There was no carrot for his nose, but I did bring a Jalapeno from my plants and we used that. However, I'm sad to say that the snowman did not last. I did a running jumpkick and blew his head clean off. It turned in to a storm of white power with my powerful kick. "KABOOM!"

Towards the end we went back to my place and had hot chocolate. That was awesome, then I found out it was Jesse's birthday and I felt like a jerk because I did not know.

Inestant -Posters FREAKIN AMAZING

I'm sooooo happy right now with how these posters turned out. It's a really cool four color print job that I finished tonight. Two colors for the background and two colors for the artwork.

Textile Poster, 11x17 – NASA Space Cloth

When I was a kid I loved ants. My brothers and I found all these fire ant homes in this giant field. We would catch a ton of the ants and put them in fish tanks with dirt. They would burrow and make all these rad tunnels. Then they would die without their queen and we would be sad. Ok, for the intestines… I was looking at them and they reminded me of those ant tunnels from my childhood. So I drew some intestines, threw some ants inside and PRESTO “the natural ant farm.”

This poster is printed on special NASA Space Cloth that is silver. Limited: Only 27 printed. All are signed & numbered on the back!

Today was AMAZING!

Morning: Woke up, posted a bunch of my artwork on Then some jerk "flagged" a few of them. That made me sad because there was nothing wrong with the postings. They were not offensive by any means. The other part that sucks about it is, there is no way to tell why exactly you got flagged. I would hope that the person doing so should at least explain his or her actions. Seems like anyone can delete anything with no just cause.

Afternoon: I went to work few a few hours to check in on the store. I also finished a print job for a new friend here in Seattle. He stopped by to get his thanksgiving dinner and pick up his shirts. It seemed really stoked on them which made me happy. When I was at work I really wanted to have a pumpkin pie, but we did not carry any that were vegan. I looked up an easy recipe and bought the ingredients when I was leaving. I drove home in the rain all stoked about the pie I was going to make. A magical pumpkin pie from the future! IT WORKED GREAT!

Night: I headed over to my friend’s house for thanksgiving dinner. We played FIFA world cup soccer. I won one game, and got owned on the other game. We ate dinner and Nancy rocks because she made me vegan mashed potatoes & stuffing. Dinner was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good. We played Taboo after dinner… that was really funny. Our team won, and there were a ton of jokes flying back and forth between the teams.

That’s pretty much it. Today was awesome, I had a lot of fun, worked a little and now I’m going to watch Zoolander.

Ready, Set, Print.....

Artwork is now setup on my press for the Intestants printing. I was really happy when I was washing out the screen. It's the greatest feeling when the images starts appearing and transforms in to exactly what was in your head. Makes me super happy for sure. My friend Travis was over tonight. I was showing him how the process works and all that fun stuff. We made some food and had to eat in the dark. That was pretty damn funny. IN THE NAME OF ART!

I also ordered a few new shirts which I'm stoked about. I ordered the TR401 Tri-Blend Short Sleeve Track Shirts. This is a unisex shirt, I have one and fell in love with it. It's like those old high school stretchy shirts that are mega thin. ST2102 Striped Jersey Short Sleeve Crew Neck Ts. I have been ordering the 2102 cut for the last few orders. Seems like everyone really likes them. I liked how this shirt had some strips and character going on with it. Seems like a great choice to print on. And last some 5399 California Fleece Zip Hoodies! It's the time to keep warm! I choose red... I like red... it's a great color that should be used more.

At this point I'm not sure what I will be printing on the hoodies, but for sure The Magnificent Robot Wizard & Intestants artwork will be printed on the shirts. I have this great sasquatch artwork that I did awhile back. That might be pretty sweet to have on a hoody. Or perhaps my recent moped drawing. We will see won't we? Damn so many choices, where does one begin?
