Screen Tests

January 19, 2010

Above is the completed test, four colour mother but the paler steel-grey didn’t register because the bloody photocopy somehow minimised without asking me. Below is what it should look like (minus the crucial detail that is the point of the design). Boo. New print under way, 3 colour, twice as big.

Concept Poster

Book cover/poster/wrapping paper?/took too long and the middle isn’t in the middle. Still don’t know how to cut and slice or whatever. McWank.

Small Publishers

December 1, 2009

Looked after the wares of Nervous Stephen mid-November sometime for the Small Publishers Book Fair. He had a wonderful selection of stamped and printed whats’its. Also visited his cave-come-studio. A magical place full of all that is good and great and ephemeral and all sat within a lovely palatte. Even the sink was brill. He gave me some bits and bobs that included some vundervall clubcards with a perferated centre and duckegg blue backing. Goodness.

Saturnin Dax

October 19, 2009

Was thinking about editions and a sort of publishers identity I could adopt as a club when I found these copies of The Mystery Book Guild. Have unconciously decided to do a wrap around cover (a la Stephen Russ) and am loving the diamond+illustration on negative/positive. Colours are also excellent as is the Gibbet. The one copy I havn’t included is called ‘The Frightened Bride’, and the Commisionaire is called Saturnin Dax. Most, most excellent.





I will shamelessly take such persuasive genius for my own ends.

First Screens O’Club Book

October 19, 2009

No time to write formal so these are the most successful – click through for all other variations on the themes yo.


Positive up! Negative down!



I know it’s basic, but I wasn’t trying anything fancy, and I tried to simplify the first screen experiments as much as possible. Though I can see how easy it will be to get carried away. The top-top-top most image is my favourite – the plan is t0 do all the colours of the rainbow. Off setting worked nicely in the negative image also. I think a completely new, less primary palatte will be a development to suit the negative versions. Tony the Technician was really great. But he wouldn’t let me take a photo. He did tell me about the time he ‘got exposed’ on the emulsion UV box though. (more…)

“Why not?” cont.

October 13, 2009





Yes, why not? Scanned in, messed around on photoshop. I have big ideas for this. T’will be a two colour screen print in my first poster ‘wave’ rave. If people think they’re joing the Med, it can only be a good thing, and won’t they be fulfilled when I give them Plath instead of a Pina Colada?
