SWANS screenprint

" I hear the howl of the beast. I feel his breath on my face. I feel the edge of his teeth." - Swans....Album = My father will guide me up a rope to the sky....Song = My birth That lyric is what I used for inspiration on this print. I really dig how it came out! For the type I just wrote it out with my fingers because I wanted it to look smeared on. I also choose the french kraft paper because it looked like butcher paper. The facts on this one are as follows, 18x24, 2 color, 80 prints and on speckletone kraft french paper. They were printed by the talented Joe Triscari out of Denver, Co. The prints will be on sale the night of the show at their merch table. They then go up for sale on my etsy site Monday Oct 29th at a random time. I will also be at the show in NYC for this one! Can't wait.....

CONVERGE Screenprint

Let me first say that I very much enjoy me some Converge! To do this poster for their show at the Marquis theatre was a total honor. A lot of the inspiration for this poster came from one of my favorite converge song's, " Last Light" off their great " You fail me" album. I actually did this image 3 times before I came to settle on the final image you see. If you look closely, you can see one of those scraped final's in the background of one of the pics below
. This piece also marks my first print job with the great printer Martin Hammond. What a blessing it has been to meet him and to have him in my new city. The final product is a run of 80,18x24,1 color, on electric red construction french paper. They will be for sale as always on my etsy site starting Monday Oct 22. YOU CAN GRAB ONE BEFORE THEN IF YOU HEAD TO THE SHOW ON SUNDAY THE 21. THEY WILL BE SELLING THEM THAT EVENING. SO I RECOMMEND THAT YOU CHECK OUT THE SHOW AND GRAB A PRINT!! Cheers Ryan
