Pleased as punch to have my Beirut poster selected for Print Magazine’s 2012 Regional Design Annual – representing the Dirty South! Pick one up, lots of great work featured – or better yet, grab a Beirut print for yourself from Human Shaped Robot! In other news as I have relocated it most likely will be a couple of months until I’m up and printing again. I will still be shipping existing prints so plan ahead and get your holiday orders in soon.
Just received a new stamp from Simon’s Stamps – I am still amazed at how quickly they can turn things around. I’ve had a little extra time to finally finish up the wiener dog print which is up on the site now. Enjoy!
It’s been entirely too long since I’ve updated the blog!!! I’ve got some new prints in the works – including this little gem based loosely off a little weinerdog sketch from a while back. Have also been working on a few gigpoosters so keep an eye out soon for some new work!
I just wrapped up printing some cards – just need to have them cut and they’ll be on the site for purchase. The cards will be available on French Blue Raspberry paper with red ink and Construction Factory Green with orange ink. They’ll be sold in packs of six with matching envelopes. Check back soon for more details and images of the new cards!
Got this awesome postcard and note in the mail today from fellow designer, illustrator and beard enthusiast Michael Buchino. Check out some of his work here.
Always find myself waiting to the last minute to send out cards. I really wanted to print some this year. Options were fairly limited on paper colors so had to use what I had on hand – but with the wife’s approval – the snow theme seemed to work well with this Blu Raspberry coverstock from French Paper. If you can’t tell from the image – the “snowflakes” are made up of old school Christmas lights. I mixed a little transparent base so the white wasn’t so overbearing – the red has a little silver metallic to make it shine a bit. All in all – I was pretty happy with how they came out (but was not very happy about cutting all of them out by hand!) especially for an afternoons worth of work. After all were cut out – we used a corner punch to finish – was definitely worth all the punching. I’m thinking next year, might try some out on the site – just can’t wait to the last minute again!
Very happy to have some nice posts on OMGposters.com and Notcot.org last week for my recent Songbird prints. I’m hoping to take some time over the holidays to work on some new stuff so keep an eye out in the new year!
Very happy to hear today that I was featured in AIGA Charlotte’s holiday gift guide. Check out the link for some great local artists and their merch!
AIGA Charlotte wants to help support local designers. One way you can do that in the month of December is buying your holiday gifts directly from designers. We’ve compiled a holiday gift guide with some of our favorite prints, shirts, jewelry, and books produced by designers who call Charlotte their home.
I’m very excited and humbled to have a page featuring my Uncle Franks print in Caspar Williamson’s new book – The Little Book of Screenprinting. The book features works from screenprint artists from around the globe – a short history of the printing and the process. It’s a really great little book if I do say so myself and I’m honored to be mentioned among the very talented group of artists. Pick one up at Amazon or your local book seller today!
It’s been entirely too long since I’ve had any updates or new art prints. I’ve tried to capture some of the updates over the past couple months below. I was lucky to have a little time over the Thanksgiving holiday to work on an art print as well – I hope to have up on the site in a week or so. There will be two versions – a red & metallic blue bird – one on French Madero Beach, the other on French Starch Rain. Keep an eye out for them soon, I’ll try to keep up with the updates!
