Somehow I have become the unofficial poster designer for my friends, Windham Flat. These are a few of the designs I’ve come up with over the past few months. If you get a chance to check them out, they’re pretty amazing.
I never know what to get anyone for Christmas. Or Chanukah (which is over already). So this year I decided to make some prints for all those folks I know and love. I made an art print designed specifically for gifting (though it’s design has nothing to do with the holidays). Then I made my list of people I’d like to send something to.
I should have done that beforehand. Turns out I had more people on my list than I had prints to send. What do to… Oh, I know. I’ll design and print a 2013 calendar for everyone else! And that’s what I’m doing now. I finished the first of two colors today. The second will be laid down tomorrow.
I’m not posting photos of the final prints as I would still like my friends to have a little suspense about what they will be receiving in the mail. And I know I won’t have them all shipped to arrive by Christmas, but that’s alright. As long as folks still get them at some point, we will all be happy.
I’ve been working on a poster for one of The Mallard’s shows in December. Here’s just a preview. This weekend I finalized the design and started printing films when my printer got jammed. I fixed that issue but then ran out of ink in one cartridge. Now I’m just waiting on FedEx to deliver the ink I need so I can begin burning screens, printing posters, and enjoying the entire process.
PS: This is the first odd-shaped poster I’ve ever designed. I’ll be attempting to print two posters per sheet. We’ll see how that goes…
Edit: Due to complications with my materials (i.e. old emulsion), I wasn’t able to print these posters. I only got as far as trying to burn the screens before realizing there wasn’t enough time before the show to make the process worth the effort. Too bad.
I recently designed and made the 3rd issue of my tiny publication called “Point01”.
I was having a conversation with a musician friend the other day about creative process and productivity. Lately I hadn’t been driven to return to my drawings and felt frustrated. He suggested that I just create a smaller project and commit to finishing it, something simple that could be executed quickly. After thinking about the various things I could make, I realized that I hadn’t published a zine in over 2 years.
I am currently waiting for some stickers to be produced by the awesome folks at Stickerobot.com. Once they are delivered, I’ll package a couple with every copy and have them available online for folks to purchase.
Just something I found that is rather amazing. My only wish is to have this on a shirt … or a poster for my room.
I made this logo for my friend Dan Barr who is in Maine attending a college out there. He has been publishing books for a class and decided on Snake Oil Press for his publishing name. He also decided to use a different logo for each book printed. Our friend Nichole Rathburn designed the first one. He asked me to create the second. And here it is.
A while ago I decided to produce another poster to celebrate the reunion of American Tripps at The Secret Alley. I’ve been wanting to print this one for a while now, and as the Berlin-style ping pong will be happening in just over a week, I felt I really needed to get started.
Today I cleaned some screens and printed my films. I also purchased a quart of Benjamin Moore Grape Gum for the dark color. I already have an awesome orange but it turns out that I need to get a nice magenta. I’ll do that tomorrow.
I finally made some time to post these process photos Danielle and I took last Monday. I gave my camera to her and she went a bit crazy. So many photos of me printing. But I rarely have any photos of me working since I’m usually alone when I print. Anyhow, these posters turned out beautiful. Thanks to Danielle and Dadfag for asking me to create something for them.
My friend Danielle asked me to design and print a poster for her band’s upcoming album release show. The band is Dadfag and they’re great. I had no idea what I was going to design when I started, but after many hours of playing with graphics, I came up with this.
I will be posting pictures of my printing process (so many P’s) just as soon as I start.
