I returned to the print studio Spike Island armed with artwork, new paper and ink. The result was, among others, a new series of three prints developed from my Colour Zoo card designs. I selected Red Fox, Black Bear and Green Tree Python.
Each print is two colour and screen printed onto Fabriano Artistico Extra White 300 gram paper. The edition is limited to 40 and will soon be available to buy from my shop.
Culture Label sells unique gifts and affordable art from the gift shops of iconic cultural institutions, independent boutiques and artists. They've also had an online refresh for both buyers and sellers alike.
I've added more work including very recent prints featuring a series of small Gull prints.
One of the hightlights so far this year was to provide prints to Gina Cross at A Little Bit of Art. Gina has been busy as we approach Christmas, attending many gift fairs and selling affordable limited edition art prints from UK based artists and designers.
Long live Summer! My new Gull prints are smaller and more colourful than my earlier series. The previous were printed onto a coloured stock while these have been screen printed onto an off white paper - Fabriano Rosapina Avorio 220gm. From top to bottom they are titled Herring, Black-headed and Greater black-backed.
They measure W 22cm x H 30.7cm with a trimmed edge and are each a limited edition of 50. They will be available soon from my shop but can be bought currently from the dynamic duo that are Howkapow at their pop-up-shop in Bristol's Cabot Circus.
