Creative Review - Monograph Screenadelica feature

Earlier in the year I picked up a subscription to Creative Review magazine, which is a great way to be exposed to new ideas and imagery which I might not come accross (or even search for) when in front of the computer screen.

Subscribers also get an extra little publication called Monograph, which is almost like a nicely printed little zine about a different subject each month.

For the December issue, Monograph features some of the gigposter art by various designers involved with Screenadelica, including my Lucero poster.

It's an absolute pleasure to be included alongside quite a few friends & peers, thanks to all involved!

Lucero Gigposter

Some of my posters were recently displayed and sold at the Orlando Calling Festival in the Shining Lands of America, thanks to the hard work and constant travelling of the Mobile Screenadelica Exhibition Crew!

The Screenadelica designers were asked to produce posters for some of the bands playing the festival, and I was chuffed to do one for those good ol' Lucero boys:

I Am Kloot gigposter

A little while ago I was asked by the lovely Mara Piccione to contribute to a special 25th Anniversary Exhibition for the Netherlands Venue EKKO.

Each designer in the exhibition produced a poster for a band that had played excellent and memorable gigs at EKKO. This is the poster I designed & printed for Manchester krooners, I Am Kloot.

This is a super-limited run of only 32, and the few that I have left are now available on the AoC Shop.

Screenprinting Course

So this weekend myself and good friend Cameron Steward (twoducksdisco.co.uk) taught our first Screenprinting Course at WYPW, the place where we both print. I'm very happy to report we were both really pleased with how it went.

As well as taking everyone through the print process we spent some time showing our enthusiastic group of 6 a few tricks for prepping files in Photoshop, such as trapping and halftoning.

I designed a 2 colour print as a sort of certificate for the course, and each student took home the one they printed.

The students were keen and enthusiastic and were an absolute pleasure to work with. Everyone was able to print their own artwork on the second day, and you can see a few of the prints here, here and here!

Fantastic stuff and I look forward to teaching further courses in the future!
