This week has seen me been back at 'Print Club London' working on three new Editions, the first of which was finished yesterday.. Woo Hoo ! Here's a work in progress pic of the beautiful 400gsm Somerset Tub Satin paper in use for Edition 1 .. only 3 layers in. A further five layers later & we were all done. Check their website for the release date.. ; )
Many technical hours later from both sides of the equation has left us with four rolls of linen fabric with our names on its selvedge, ; ) The image above is a colour way of this first design. New websites are imminent from Us & Flock .. in the meantime you can keep an eye on Studio Flock's Instagram page here / #excited!
This Sunday sees my work alongside Jess Wilson & Mr Penfold at Jealous Gallery East. 'Anything Goes' pretty much is exactly what is says on the can.. three artists showcasing what they do best, ie. creating colourful POP! artworks. The show opens this Sunday October 18th, running through to November 8th. It previews on Wednesday November 4th, come down to Jealous & view these artworks in the flesh.. sunglasses optional, ; ) !
'Peachy Büms' (shown above) is my latest Edition created at Jealous Gallery.
This year sees the 50th Anniversary of The Road Sign, an object I imagine most of us take for granted.. Designed by Margaret Calvert & Jock Kinneir their system has became a role model for modern signage all over the world. Curated beautifully by 'Made North', the 'Design Museum' will play host for '50 Years of British Road Signs', where fifty current interpretations of this ubiquitous object will be on show by various leading (I know!) designers & artists. Running from September 19th through to 25th October the exhibition is free as part of the 'London Design Festival' .. just make sure you know how to get there yeah..
Both signs are silkscreen prints on to an Aluminium Roadsign / 4 colour print.
Made North's theme of 'North & South' was the perfect platform to silkscreen pop images of Liverpool's Fab Four & London's The Rolling Stones. Apparently at the time you were either one way or the other .. my Mum being a scouser was strictly Beatles !
