I decided to make some of the illustrations from Struwwelpeter as individual screen prints.
All prints are limited editions, now available through etsy.

Thanks Quimby’s and everyone!

A huge thanks to everyone who came out to the Struwwelpeter opening event at Quimby’s!

It was so much fun and I feel incredibly thankful to be around so many talented and amazing people! I didn’t have a chance to photograph so it’s a good thing that Liz at Quimby’s did :)

This post is long overdue, as I’ve been preoccupied with finishing up the books. Anyway, here are some shots from the hand binding process.

‘Trunk Show’ print for TEN x TEN

Trunk Show, 2010
10″ x 10″, screenprint, edition of 275

My piece for TEN x TEN, a new collaborative initiative developed by Spudnik Press and Homeroom Chicago

About:
TEN x TEN develops the creative relationship between bands and printmakers beyond show posters. Visual artists invited a musician or band to join the project by recording an original song. Artists then created a 10 in x 10 in print inspired by the song they commissioned. The final collection features a suite of ten art prints and a ten song compilation of all new tracks.

For this project, I teamed up with the very talented Max Alexander (check out his site for more info and streaming). This image was inspired by a new track titled ‘Trunk Show’.

TEN x TEN visual artists:
Dee Clements, Kathleen Judge, Angee Lennard, Onsmith, Colin Palombi, Joey Potts, Grant Reynolds, Tom Smith, Sanya Glisic, Sonnenzimmer

Songs by:
Locks, The Late Model Races, Strictly Jug Nuts, Sky Event, Netherfriends, Nones, Christine Kick, Blasted Diplomats, Max Alexander, Jason Adasiewicz

All the prints and additional works by each artist are on display at LivingRoom Gallery (1530 West Superior Street, Chicago), through February 19th.
