No comments:

Copyright has been daubing the streets of the UK with his trademark pink roses for years. Fusing street art, graffiti and more traditional styles, he uses a mixture of classic painting techniques and spray can art. He creates print styles with stencils, depth with spray paint, and texture with a paintbrush.

He has released two new prints with 1xRUN titled Forever, For Ever in your choice of blue or mauve. They are 13.75 x 19.75 Inches. Mixed Media Screen Print on 300gsm Fabriano Watercolour Paper and both colors have an edition of 13.
"I originally drew her in 2014 for a canvas, I sometimes like to revisit my girls into new formats. The tattoo on her arm wasn't on the original, but references a sailor Jerry tattoo and the name of a solo show I had in London in 2014, 'One Red Rose Forever'." - Copyright

Wes Wilson Are We Next Poster

No comments:

It's always great to see the rock artists of the 60's and 70's continue to release work. Wes Wilson has released a great new print.

In 1965, this was Wes' first designed and printed poster while he worked in a small lithography print shop. This led ultimately to Chet Helms and later Bill Graham approaching him to do posters in the area which jump-started his career and changed poster art as we know it. The poster has become an icon of those turbulent times and still resonates today as a meaningful warning from the past.

Here is a little back ground from Wes:
I’m glad I did something to significantly express my shock and anguish as an American about such an obviously erroneous and costly ethical ‘mistake’ as was the Viet Nam War. Today however we have been attacked by ultra-cunning and ruthless terrorists and in response to that horribly destructive day our government was forced to suddenly power up our national security agencies like never before. However, the ‘facts’ about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, that were so widely believed, have now been wholly discredited for all to see. Because of that ‘mistake’ we too rapidly invaded Iraq without thoroughly working out both a military plan and the fuller use of the many normal diplomatic protocols which are so useful in less stressful times such as was done prior to the Gulf War. Such haste has also raised ‘constitutional issues’ about “rights” here at home. Because more practical protocols as well as United Nations involvement were employed and respected by the first President Bush – we gathered a whole spectrum of willing allies who come to our aid in freeing Kuwait using multinational forces.

Consequently, due in large part to ‘haste makes waste’ we are now deeply involved in the wasteful horrors of another costly ‘mistake’ - the current Iraq War. However, despite not yet knowing fully just how this all could have happened – we are at war inside Iraq. The Iraq situation is different from Viet Nam and we should strive to leave in grace and avoid the ‘dropping everything and running.’

It seems to me that since we don’t know just how all ‘this difficulty’ came about - the question “Are We Next?” still applies. And, as it relates to continuing the grand open and fair ideals plus continuing on in the hopes and practices of our Democratic Republic – this notable admonition continues for all Americans as well - “Be Aware!”

Prefab77 Sunday Girl Print

No comments:

Prefab77 are a couple of artists who have origins in the north of England, California and New York by weaving small pieces of modern popular culture.

They create fast, hard-edged and stripped down artwork that is often political, sometimes anti-establishment, but always beautiful. rock and rebellion reflecting on the passing of our familiar institutions, shadowy establishment on the take and take small bites out of the underbelly of our modern culture that gets more bizarre with each passing day.

It is a dark word of money, fashion, music and politics woven into a luxurious mixture of acrylic, spraypaint, wheatpaste and varnish.

Torsten Jahnke Kowloon Walled City And Minsk German Tour Poster

No comments:

Torsten Jahnke who is a friend of Alexander Hanke has released his German tour poster for the sludge double package Kowloon Walled City and Minsk.

 I asked him about the design:
In this case, we worked quite literally with the band name.

kowloon walled city was a settlement on the outskirts of hong kong, that was built by it's inhabitants on the fly.
no architects or city planing was involved. living conditions were accordingly. it was torn down by HK authorities in the 1990s.
from a far, the whole thing really looked like a guitar amp dropped on it's back.
so the idea was to create an image, that brings housing blocks and stacks of amps together, as both bands have a very heavy sound and are quite the equipment fetishists.
hence the streets made from guitar cables, the sun that also is a knob and we also sneaked an image of the current album cover in there.

Here are the details on the posters
50 × 70 cm (19.7 × 27.6")
3-colour screenprint on silver 300 gsm Folia paper (gold/red, black, transparent silver)
2 variations
Overall print run: 60 s/n 30 of each color.

Matt Leunig Van Morrison San Francisco Poster

No comments:

Van Morrison is a legend & cultural icon so it was such a real honor for Matt Leunig to get the nod to do a poster for his 2-night run at the SFJazz Center in San Francisco this week. His songs you know without even realizing you know them, if that makes sense. “Gloria”… “Moondance” …”Brown Eyed Girl”…. “Wild Night Is Calling”…. “Have I Told You Lately I Love You”,.. all classics.
I knew I couldn’t go for my usual trippy-dippy psychedelic design style due to the audience this was for and needed something that felt more classic. Though SF does not have the most robust Autumn colors, I wanted to represent Fall as well as the uniqueness of the venue, the SFJazz Center. -Matt Leunig
The final print is a 5-color 18 x 24 and Matt will have a small run of 50 Artist Edition Prints signed & numbered available on Friday, October 21st 11AM PDT along w/ 20 foil variants at

Available Thursday, October 20, 2016, 12 pm PST at

Artist statement:
It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with PangeaSeed for the second time. This time the inspiration was more grounded in reality. PangeaSeed Foundation's expedition to satellite tag the first sharks in the Northern Pacific ocean is what inspired me to create this piece.

I wanted to depict both humans and sharks together, swimming in harmony united by the technological advancements. Also I included a little Easter egg in this piece… the map in the background with the dots, is based on the actual motioning data being received from the satellite tags attached to the hammerheads off the coast of Japan.

Via art, science and activism, we can help save our seas. More information on how you can support their efforts, please visit today.

Jay Ryan Metropolis, Poster Children and Band of Horses Posters

No comments:

Jay Ryan dropped three new posters on his site. Above is the very colorful print made recently for his good friends at Metropolis Coffee Company here in Chicago. Jay lost count, but this is something like the eighth print he's made for these Chicago heroes since they opened about a decade ago.

 Poster Children are one of Jay Ryan's favorite bands, and were the biggest band in town while he was in school in Champaign, Illinois, in the early 1990s. Recently they've been touring in support of the re-release of their landmark "Daisychain Reaction" album. Historically, the band members are regarded as computer nerds, blogging while on tour before anyone else was doing it, so Jay made sure to include an Apple IIe, as well as a couple other hidden references.

Band of Horses Jackson Poster. The band has a very identifiable type treatment they always use on albums, so Jay wanted to work with that as a textual starting point.

Zoltron Lagunitas Beer Circus Poster Release

No comments:

Zoltron has a killer new poster releasing this week.

Zoltron gives a little history lesson:
Where I grew up in West Marin, Ca. there was an amazing little health food store called "House of Richards." It was my introduction to such man-made-wonders as carob, kefir and black licorice (all part of Satan's nutritious diet).

The building that housed the store was a big, beautiful, dusty, historic space, built out of virgin redwood. At the turn of the century, It was an open air dance floor. The train would stop and people would come dance the charlstan or the macarena.. Or whatever the kids called dirty dancing back then.

It just so happens that this is the exact same building where the Lagunitas Brewing Company started their business. A century later. And their name sake. The building is located 1/2 mile from our glorious town of Lagunitas after all.

It also just so happens that my art studio is directly across the street from that awesome historic trainstop/dancefloor/brewery.

Anyways.. Mainly because of the historical significance and my respect for their humble beginnings and ensuing self-made craft empire, I quickly agreed to create the poster for the annual Lagunitas Beer Circus. You really gotta love a brewery that decides to follow
the important things in life, like making their own circus.

I happened to be working on a stencil piece that seemed to fit the bill, so after a little back and forth, we agreed on a deceased fortune telling, Gypsy Mystic. I mean what circus doesn't have a creepy, half-dead spiritual medium in a head scarf ?

100% proceeds of posters sales from the event go to local charities. That's pretty damn cool of them. Of course, I'll be selling my copies (and variants) to fund my Carob and Kefir habit.
The poster is 5 Color Screen Print with Metallics & Specialty Gloss/Metallic Overprint
Edition of 275
18" X 24" #130 White parchment

On sale Wednesday at 2 pm EDT at
