It’s an unusually warm February afternoon as screenprinter Luke Martin walks into room 3004 of Towson University’s Center for Arts.
Today, Martin will print two separate sets of posters for an upcoming The Head and the Heart concert at the Orpheum Theater in Madison, Wisconsin.
A former Towson student, Martin originally wanted to study art education and keep his art as a side hobby. He had always known that he wanted to pursue some form of art, but he wasn’t exactly sure where he wanted to focus his efforts.
In high school, he began selling his artwork at various craft fairs, and one day during his senior year, he skipped all of his classes to do his first screenprint. It was at that moment that Martin knew screenprinting was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life.
