New poster released: Belle & Sebastian, UK Tour poster!

 

New Belle & Sebastian UK Tour poster, 2-color & all hand screenprinted. (Click for more info or to purchase.)

Huge big yay! So excited yet again, we just can’t help it. Belle & Sebastian are pretty much my favoritest favorite band, and have been for well close to 15 years. So, we’re beyond-all-reason-honored and thrilled to have been able to design and hand screenprint their limited edition 2010 United Kingdom Tour promotional show poster (our 4th poster for the lovelies from Glasgow).

 

Write About Love, love.

Simply put? They’re the bestest.

This time we did a blue companion poster to our North American Tour Poster (See it HERE) and the start of a love letter is my all hand screenprinted poster for the fantastic Belle & Sebastian with peacock blue and midnight black hand-mixed acrylic silkscreen inks. An Artist’s Edition of 100 is available here, and are signed & numbered (by me, strawberryluna) so I will have a limited few available for sale. Size: 16×22 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight.

This poster will be available at shows on the UK tour dates, and here as I have just a portion of the run available for sale here, so they will go quick!

Now onsale & available for purchase from my website & webstore here and also available at my Etsy shop here.

And lo! A few process photos are below, taken while hand screenprinting this poster. Click on any of the below images to see larger versions and more at my Flickr account.

ROMG!! So, OK. If you follow me on Facebook and / or Twitter, you know that just a bit back I was freaking out a tad about a poster gig…and I couldn’t help it. Could you? This is the one that made me so excited it was hard to sleep. No kidding.

Belle & Sebastian are pretty much my favoritest favorite band, and have been for well over a decade. About 14 years now. So, we’re beyond-all-reason-honored and thrilled to do Belle & Sebastian’s limited edition 2010 North American Tour poster (our 2nd poster for the lovelies from Glasgow. Here is our now-sold-out first poster for them from way back in 2006.) We hope that you like it as much as they do.

Simply put? They’re the bestest.

This start of a love letter is my all hand screenprinted poster for the fantastic Belle & Sebastian with poppy-red and midnight black hand-mixed acrylic silkscreen inks. Edition: 400 copies were sold on tour with the band and an Artist’s Edition of 100 available here, signed & numbered (by me, strawberryluna) so I will have a limited few available for sale. Size: 16×22 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight.

This poster was sold at the North American show dates I have just a portion of the run available for sale here, so they will go quick!

Now onsale for $25 and  freshly available for purchase at my website HERE and also in my Etsy shop here.

I also want to give a giant shout out to the adorable Fiona from Banchory who was just the best! :) xo ladybug! I was lucky enough to catch their Washington, DC show at the D.A.R. with my friend Laura from soulrun and it was a magical night. Eeee!

Since the edition was a tad huge for hand screenprinting as fast as possible, (that’s right, I hand screenprinted 500 posters in 2 days…) I have only a few process photos, but I hope that you dig them anyway :)

Check out more at my Flickr page too!

BIG HUGE stack of paper. I felt a bit like the maiden in Rumpelstiltskin…
