Trevor Grabill is creating prints

Hello! I'm Trevor. I'm an illustrator, teacher, and gardener in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and I've been making prints, zines, and other images as Flat Mountain Press since 2009. My work always starts with my sketchbook, growing out of what I see traveling or at home on the shores of the Great Lakes. It ranges from small ideas, like a conversation overheard in a bar or a weed growing in the sidewalk, to huge ones, like architecture, broad landscapes, and enduring social problems. Regardless of scale, these images are translated onto a wood or linoleum block, meticulously carved, and printed by hand on a small press. It's a long process, and one that allows images to grow, mature, and change over time.

Wondering what all that looks like? Check out my website or follow me on instagram.

Your support will help me explore new avenues of making, opening opportunities for residencies, travel, collaboration, exhibition, and study, allowing me to purchase new tools and materials, and of course, allowing me to devote more invaluable time to making. It's also a huge show of validation and support - it lets me know that this work is important to you, and that I should keep making it. But most of all, this Patreon is about getting work into your hands. I'm very excited about the artwork I'll be sharing with patrons, and equally excited about sharing new ideas with you all on here.

Thanks for your interest and support!
