One Solid Gold Toof & and a Gold Record – it’s all good.

We’re really honored to be a part of the amazing Sasquatch! Festival Poster Invitational for the 5th year in row. Each year Sasquatch! Fest hand picks a group of current poster artists from around the world to produce one special, limited edition posters for one of the bands playing at the Festival that year. For 2012 we are lucky enough to paired up with the super Clap Your hands Say Yeah and we couldn’t be more pleased. This year’s 2012 poster gallery is up at the Sasquatch! site here.

Our new poster for them is now available in our Web Shop here and also in our Etsy store right here.

The main deets:

  • Our Clap Your Hands Say Yeah poster is an all hand pulled, hand screen printed gig poster with 4 colors, one of them is a metallic gold that shimmers like crazy in the light. Painstakingly silkscreen printed by hand in our studio.
  • Limited edition of 120. This run was split into 3, a portion for the band, another portion went to Sasquatch! Fest for their annual Poster Show in conjunction with the festival, with the remaining posters available here. Each print is hand signed and numbered by strawberryluna.
  • Size is approximately 16 x22 inches (45.7 cm x 61 cm).

Lovely and shimmering metallic gold ink and color test-smears on the left. Soon to be a record…and a tooth!

 

2nd color, the background orange, printed onto my “registration copy”, hence the color test smears on the side. Ignore those! The registration copy is the only copy that ever has markings like this.

Beautiful, psychedelic, flowery, and a little messy, totally warm & California, we love Sleepy Sun.

We’re proud to be a part of the Sleepy Sun Fall 2010 Tour Poster series. Each night on the tour, the band has a different, exclusive & limited edition poster by a different poster artist for that night’s show. Take a gander, this is my hand screenprinted poster for September 11, 2010 at Bottletree, Birmingham, AL.

This is my 6-color, all hand screenprinted, limited edition poster for Sleepy Sun with purple, sunset pink, brown & metallic gold hand mixed inks. Screenprinting magic extra: Gold overprints pink & purple to make orange and a goldish green. Edition: 80, signed & numbered (by me, strawberryluna.) 35 posters went to the band on tour so I will have a limited few available for sale. Size: 16×22 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.)

Fall & Autumn, my favorite 2 seasons. So, I’m not at all surprised that while in the process of hand printing this art print, I decided to do two colorways of the same print. This is the fourth print in series of seasonal, limited edition prints that I’ve been doing all year. That’s right, they fit the number of seasons, crazy right?!

Anyhoo, here you see both colorways, the above as planned 4-color design with metallic gold leaves, (edition of 75) and the below with frosty, nay, ghostly white negative space leaves. A harbinger of things to come (a smaller edition of just 25). The leaf shapes are from leaves that I gathered on a dog walk and scanned in at home a couple of years ago. I love their shape and definition.
