Starbursts--at LACE

Emily Joyce participated in Hollywood MerchmART at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions to kick off the Summer! The show, curated by Emma Gray, transformed LACE’s storefront space into an artist-created souvenir shop with price points between $1-$200! Check it out if you get the chance, it'll be up all Summer! A deal is so much sweeter in the Summer.
Here you can see our first official edition printed together, variable edition that is. 25 different 20" x 20" posters in 5 colors of paper and 6 colors of ink. Aren't they fun?!

Summer Titone's Summer 2010

Summer asked me to print the artwork of her friend, Alex, onto clothing she has designed and sewn for her newest Summer clothing line. I had to simplify the paintings to be translated into screenprints, but I think they still carry the essence of the original artwork pretty well. The clothes was featured at a show at New Puppy Gallery in LA, this July. Her website is summertitone.com, and her clothes can also be purchased through Etsy. Have a look!

PARROT 2,3 & 4

Matthew Timmons and I printed 3 more editions of titles from the PARROT series.  This fantastic collaborative effort  is described well in the previous post, PARROT 1, and can be subscribed to by visiting InsertPress.Net.
The newest additions include writing by authors Harold Abramowitz, Allison Carter and Joseph Mosconi. There are many more editions to print! And, if you are interested in these gems, grab them while they are still here! Amazing talent here, really!

Roussau Walks--Phase 2

Precision placement
The vinyl reference is in the background
 Our first intern, Maiya! 
 One of the most important things to consider when working on a large scale printing project, is food. Here we are doing what we do-- eating Cobb Salads; the perfect energy food-- in a great atmosphere of kitchy rooster paintings and western font!!!

Print  #1
  Print #2

As promised, the above are pictures of the remainder of this set of prints--the colorful leaves!  Contrary to what you would believe, each leaf was strategically placed to create these lush bundles of leaf shaped color, revealing mere slivers of the many pairs of eyes printed before. What magical landscapes they are upright!
