This is a preview of a new screen print i will be printing and releasing through dangerfork some time next month. This final print is the product of a process i have developed over the last year or so and am super happy with the results. I started by hand drawing the initial sketch then scanning and re-drawing with illustrator as a 1 colour image to give it a very sharp vectorised look. I then printed it in several different paper/ink colour combinations and cut them up and glued them into several collages. I have chosen and photographed one of the collages and re-separated it using halftones to capture some of the texture of the collage, still keeping to a minimum number of colour for the print. A screen print of a screen print, i like this concept.. My working process has changed alot over the years from being very spontaneous and haphazard with visually complicated results to now meticulous & process driven with mostly very simple results. Funny how things chance…
My friend Buff Diss is launching a new fashion label that he asked me to do some artwork for. I went through a process of hand drawing, scanning, digital drawing, screen printing, cutting up and collaging. The finished product will then be scanned, separated then screen printed onto t-shirts, a screen print of a screen print. neat… These were some secondary pieces i did with the ones for the t-shirts, keep an eye out for buff diss’s new label dropping in the next couple of months and also have a look over at his blog, he is a man of good taste.
Again a long time between posts, mostly due to getting very busy over at dangerfork and a new addition to the family keeping me in at night. But i did design and print up these little mini prints for the Carbon festival goodie bags. Pretty happy with how these have turned out and currently (slowly) working on a whole alphabet to print up. We have just got a small commercial paper guillotine which makes cutting these up a treat, i printed them 8up double sided in 4 different colour ways and it took just under an hour to trim them all. too easy!! ps. love my new iphone5, all photos taken with the phone at a great quality & hopefully its a bit sooner for my next post!!
