Out of Spite XI process & art print

Nice and easy print session.  2 colour, A2, edition of 35.

Midway through the print process I decided do an art print version of the design - super limited edition of only 5!

The main run will be available to purchase at Out of Spite Festival next weekend, happening at The Well, Leeds. (Click here to see the Facebook event).

The art print version is up on the AoC Shop now!

Out of Spite XI

Out of Spite is a long-running weekend music festival held in Leeds and run by friends of mine.  It's sort of become a landmark event within the circles of no-longer-young, UK, 90's punk rockers - of which I am proudly one!  Here's a poster I whipped up to commemorate the event, which I hope to print this weekend in order to have a stack for sale during the fest.


The sweet official poster/flyer design, as used to advertise the event, was designed by a friend of mine, Ben Whittington, and he'll have screenprints of that design also.

Stay tuned for some snaps of my printing process...

Stornoway Silkscreen Concert Poster

I recently designed a poster for alt-folky Oxford lads, Stornoway to commemorate their appearance at London's impressive Somerset House.

I pitched a few sketches for the concept, one of which was the idea that the band might want to have a practice gig using a 'home-made' prop of Somerset House to try and capture the vibe.  The band liked the idea and - with the addition of a few key island/nautical elements - that's what we went with.

Stornoway will be playing at Somerset House this Saturday, 9th July, and the posters will be available form their merch stall.  I should also have a few for sale in the AoC Online Shop soon.
