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!

“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)
