Handmade Gig Flyers

Uncategorized

Handmade gig flyers for a Vostok-3 evening at the The Beehive in London UK on Friday 13th April 2018. On the bill are  2 Sillouettes and M.o.f.a.m.

Each flyer is cut from a 1960’s Encyclopedia and then individualy hand painted and rubber stamped, making each them unique.

A good example of post digital  graphics. Instantly collectible pieces of music memorabilia but don’t just grab them,  go to the shows and support the artists.

Printing Press

Printing Press.

The last few printing sessions have been over at a friends studio and the press i have been working on is a beauty.

It was manufactured by Hunter Penrose in U.K. The bed has an actual printing area of around 50cm/20′ wide and 75cm/30′ long. The entire press is made from steel with robust engineering and it feels like something thats built to last. Its up on a first floor and must have been quite an effort to install as each piece requires 2 people to lift because of the weight.

Peak Heat

Today has been the hottest day of the year so far. Its peak summertime here and i have been enjoying spending the day printing at a friends studio.

I was working with the safe wash inks, seeing how they mixed with each other to make new colours and then printing the result after inking up a plate.
