Pelham Poster 2014

Next in the toy series is Pelham. I always love seeing Phish in places I have never been. The Pelham illustration features four notes for the four band members, and the xylophone represents the opening notes to Divided Sky.

Drawing again from the Pop Tone paper line, this one is called "Orange Fizz". It 100lb paper stock and like the others, will have a hand deckled bottom edge. 12" 1/2 by 18". This is just a rough estimation of the colors, as the paper is a bit warmer.

Progress photos will be added as I go, so check back often. I am shooting for a run of at least 40.

I couldn't be any happier with this particular run. I ended up with a full run of 50 posters, and 5 A/Ps for the run. I will have a handful of these with me in Charlotte this weekend. Then I will put a few online prior to the show next week, time permitting.

Charlotte Poster 2014


This year's posters will have a 'Toys' theme. They will all be done in a similar 4 color screen print advertising style. The posters will be 12 1/2 inches by about 18 or 17 inches since the bottom edge will be hand deckled. I will be using the Pop-Tone line provided by French Paper Company. The paper is 100 lb cover stock and the colors are reminiscent of the toys that are featured in the illustrations. I am pretty excited about this series as I will be printing these myself. It's amazing to see what you intended change a bit as the ink hits the paper.

First up is Charlotte. This one is very close to being printed, so this post will be getting photo updates of the process. The other two posters on deck are Pelham and Alpharetta. I will start different progress posts when those are ready to print. I am planning runs of 50 for each print, but that number may go down some. It doesn't look like I will have time to offer the Charlotte run prior to the show, but I will if I am able to.

Stay tuned for more updates...





Paper is here and deckling is done.
Separations are done.

Finished poster.

The run ended up being 35. The border gave a lot of interesting distressing variations. Though the yellow isn't as bright as I hoped, the run ended up going pretty well.

These will be available online for a few days, and anything left will be with me in Charlotte.
These are $23.50 shipped. Grab one here.

Phleur-de-lis Shirts

My good friend Billy Jack is doing his first shirt design for Jazz Fest. This is a pretty neat one color, hand drawn design featuring the fleur-de-lis symbol. These will be printed very soon, and these are pre-order only, as I understand it. They will be printed on Gildan Ultras (6.1 oz. 100% cotton) purple on gold.

If you are interesting in one of these, please contact him ASAP at bill.synergy@gmail.com.

He will need a count by the end of today.

One for the ladies...

Page has got a new shirt. It's very nice.

This one is printed on a slightly different ladies shirt than I usually use, mainly for the colors available. It's a Bella Canvas Ladies' Jersey, 4.2 oz cotton (on the lighter side). Sizes go up to 2XL. I am also making a Men's version in light blue only (sorry guys, they were out of pink.).

Get yours here.

Tweezer Madness Returns


I haven't offered this one for a few years, so I figured it was time. I put a little twist on the colors this go around. The light yellow shirt is unfortunately only available in the men's short sleeve. The other is a dark heather, which the rest of the styles are available in. Both are Gildan 6.1 oz cotton. Ladies will be my normal Gildan Softspun junior cut.
