Hello! Summer is here, and I've been spending a lot of time at the studio making new things. Mike Gordon of Phish recently played a show in Buffalo, NY and I did the poster (to the left). For this poster, I tried printing with a totally different kind of ink. I was really pleased with the results, and I think I'm going to be switching brands. The pigment seems to be much denser, and it was a lot easier to get the transparent colors to do what I wanted them to do. In person, the black is slick and glossy looking. Pretty rad.
I also had the great pleasure of working on a poster for Ben Folds' benefit concert last month for the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless.
I was contacted by a violin workshop here in Chicago to make a promotional poster. I worked quite a bit larger than I normally do, doing various illustrations based on snapshots I took while visiting the workshop.
All three new prints are available now in the store.
The Exhibitions section has been updated to reflect three upcoming events in Chicago, Flatstock 50 and a show at IPaintMyMind Gallery, and Chicago's annual Printers' Ball.
