412Creative + strawberryluna = love

Pittsburgh is BOOMING these days with smart, creative and cool people. When I first moved here on a whim many years ago, Pittsburgh was a perfectly nice city across the state from my home in Philadelphia. It seemed like an easy move to test the waters of living somewhere else.

Now? Pittsburgh is wicked awesome. And one of the new avenues of documenting and sharing the many ways in which this city has organically become a vibrant hub of creativity, design and culture is 412Creative. Utilizing multi-disciplinary talents of their own to showcase the same going on and growing around the city, 412Creative describes themselves as:

“Devoted to showcasing smart and effective design and advertising.  The website was motivated by a nagging question, one that pops up frequently when looking through magazines, surfing the Web or watching the news: “Who did that?”

To that end, we’re incredibly honored to have shared a recent Saturday with 412Creative’s Elvira Eichleay and Joey Kennedy so that they could put together this wonderful piece on our studio, our process and our creative lives in Pittsburgh.

To read the full interview profile and see many more lovely photographs by Joey Kennedy, just click here and visit 412Creative! We can’t wait to hang out again soon!

New poster released – Vetiver at Sasquatch Festival 2010!

2-color, all hand screenprinted poster for the band Vetiver's show at the 2010 Sasquatch Music Festival. (click for more details or to purchase.)

Just released and ready to go! This is my new poster for the band Vetiver, from their Sasquatch Festival show this past weekend at The Gorge on George, Wa.

2010 is the 4th year in a row that I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sasquatch in their poster series that they arrange with the top poster artists from around the country, pairing them up with their favorite bands appearing at Sasquatch each year. We couldn’t be happier that we were paired up with a great band like Vetiver!

This is my 2-color, all hand screenprinted poster for Vetiver with deep brown and sunset-orange, hand mixed and non-toxic water based screenprinting inks. These posters are signed (by me) and numbered. Edition of 90. Size: 16 x22 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight.

I design & hand screenprint my prints and posters. If you have any questions, just let me know!

My new poster for Vetiver is now available at my website here.

Below are some process photos of this poster being printed by me at my studio, click any image below to see more at my Flickr page too.

Films to burn screens for my Vetiver poster. The left / lighter one is too light, the right / darker one is perfect.
