When life gives you lemons…

When I was mixing up the black ink for printing these I put in more pigment that I thought necessary and it was proper black. At least it looked it. Strangely though once it had been printed it came up grey. I did a couple more just to check I wasn’t going mad and then thought about crying. Screen printing can be pretty frustrating sometimes. Rather than throw a sulk and just chuck everything in the bin I thought I’d make the best of the situation and salvage what I could and these are the result. I like them more than I should probably because I know just how close they came to being binned. It turns out I’d used an old pigment or possibly old base goop and it somehow loses it’s ability to hold decent colour. Everyday is a school day.

Anyway they’re on A2 paper and are made using the magic of screen printing and spray paint. Perhaps I’ll get round to doing them again in black and completing them as per my original vision someday. Who knows? Drop us a line if interested.

Cheers

There’s nothing worse than making a schoolboy error whilst resolutely proclaiming to be a professional. So any self respecting artist should really know better than to walk into the trap I did. Although I’ve never done any lino cutting before I know what the score is as i have screen printed on many occasions and the same rules apply. Being excited to start my lino cutting I jumped straight in without the necessary amount of thought and only on completion was my flaw evident. I forgot to reverse the image and text so it would print the  correct way round. D’oh…

Urban art exhibition @ Chapel Arts in Cheltenham

Now the Cheltenham Festival may have been and gone but if you live anywhere near the area here’s a hot little tip for you. We’re exhibiting a few pieces alongside other artists such as My dog sighs, Korp, Dice 67 and Zabou at the Urban Arts exhibition at Chapel Arts on Knapp Road in Cheltenham. It’s running from this Friday (25th March) until the 16th April. It’s always good to make it down on opening night if you can – some lovely artwork, a beer or two and if anyone asks you can sound like you’re doing something cultural. It’s in the balance at the moment whether we’ll be able to make it or not but if we do we’ll see you there…

Cheers

Der Froschkönig Oder

Trust id-iom. Just as the UK votes Brexit we start getting to grips with German. Typical. This piece is for all those gals (or guys) who have found their lovely little frog prince and just need to seal the deal with a kiss. As you can see not only is this fella a king amongst frogs but he also has a catchy little gimmick to catch your attention – a small helium balloon showing how much he loves you. Just one kiss and he’ll transmogrify right in front of yours into the man of your dreams. You’ve just got to get over kissing a frog first.

Cheers

Je l’aime a mourir

Je l'aime a mourir

Je l’aime a mourir

Being the social media savvy types we undoubtedly are we thought we’d jump on the Valentines bandwagon with a little contribution of our own – but being given to a more cynical and pernicious state of mind we’ve given it a slightly darker nuance and then hidden that nuance behind an almost impenetrable wall of langue Francaise – as the French would say. From there it’s up to you to work it out.

Cheers
