My Name is Karl Maxwell (I go by KMax, Karl, or Max). I have been unhappy in my job as an illustrator for some time now. my heart just isn't in it anymore. I have no personal love or attachments to the stuff I've been drawing for a living. so I decided a while ago to venture out and start doing my own thing and I'm about to launch it. everything I'm doing will be soccer/futbol related. being Bayern is my favorite team, I decided to start with a piece dedicated to the 2014/2015 season. I realize a lot of Bayern fans are unhappy with the team, Pep, and certain players this season so some may not see the point in doing a bayern piece of this season but that's my team. I'm proud of them regardless whether they win the UEFA final or not and I wanted my first piece, my rookie card, to be something I'd buy and hang on my walls if I saw it. I do not entirely agree with the criticisms of pep and some of the players that have been receiving harsh criticism lately (some I do), but I'll keep my opinions to myself. this piece will be available on my site, Big Cartel, and Etsy very soon. the printer and I have been going back and forth for a week or two now setting the piece up for print. it should be up shortly. but I thought what better place to put the piece out there and see how it is received than a forum of Bayern fans.
this piece will be a very high quality 18x24 screen print, roughly $50/ea, depending on what my final overhead costs are. It took me about 250 hours to draw. I drew the Allianz at least twice. Erased a few players and redrew them in different poses and placements.
if you aren't interested in this piece but may be interested in others of individual players or another piece of bayern, please still follow, like, share, retweet, etc etc. I have another piece already done of Neuer (which I am also posting) and plan to do more of other players. both Bayern and otherwise. (I'd like to release a Thomas Muller piece, since he's my favorite player. but I'd need to sell 20-30 of this piece before I can begin to afford printing that or the Neuer piece that is already finished. all my pieces will be hand printed, limited edition, and reasonably priced. when I say limited edition I mean there may be 50 or 100 prints in a run, and once they are sold out that's it. they will never print again. if you don't get it off me, the only way you'll get one is to find someone selling one that they got from me. I will also have a store where you can purchase these as a case for your phone, mouse pad, tee shirt, etc etc and my site will have a page where you can download cell phone wallpaper versions.
