The Continued Race for Space

Room Tour Project 222 CheekiSkrub

Someone dropped me a line to say they’d spotted a couple of my Public Service Broadcasting prints in a room tour video by YouTuber RandomFrankP.

The owner of the setup, CheekiSkrub, has done a very nice job! You can watch the video here.

I regularly get messages about whether these posters are still available. They have long since sold out and while I’d love to hook people up who are trying to track them down, unfortunately that’s the nature of limited editions!

I work with the band to produce this kind of work, so I can’t just bash out reprints without their permission. That said, there has been some talk of doing a reprint of the very first poster in different colours… we’ll see; watch this space.

I recently picked up the finished HP Lovecraft Literary Podcast 10th Anniversary Screenprints.

It’s always a thrill seeing the final printed product after designing something on the screen, even when I do the screenprinting myself. I have to say, my good buddy Tommy at Prints of Thieves has absolutely excelled himself – these turned out beautifully! The colour matching, the detail, and the sharpness of the print are just spot on.

The other items should be here soon and the pre-orders will begin shipping straight away. Thanks so much for people’s support and patience with this project, I can’t wait for you to see them in person.

See more close-up shots after the break…

HP Lovecraft Literary Podcast – 10th Anniversary Merch – Pt.1

HP Lovecraft Literary Podcast 10th Anniversary merchandise

One of my favourite podcasts has been going for ten years. I’ve been a listener since the first episode and have got to know the hosts a little, having done some artwork for a ‘Live in Leeds’ show many moons ago.

To celebrate their 10th anniversary, I worked with Chad & Chris in creating some artwork and other fine wares: a limited-edition screenprinted poster, plus tshirt and tote bag designs, which are all available for purchase here.

As the pre-order window is about to close and these will soon be sent off to print (by the super handsome and talented Prints of Thieves), I’ve been getting the artwork print-ready and thought it might be nice to share some of that process.

Colour Separations

The artwork was done as a digital painting initially. It takes a little bit of work to convert the mess of a Photoshop file – with all it’s layers, and masks, and effects – into something that’s ready for screenprinting.

Here’s a little animation of the poster artwork now it’s been colour separated, showing how it will be printed in four layers of magical ink:

And as an added bonus, here’s the presentation of ideas which I sent the guys for their input, along with the original sketches from my trusty FIELD NOTES notebook.

I’ll update again with some images of the final products. Until then, stay safe and watch the stars…
