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 release: Inara George silkscreened gig poster!

Inara George silkscreen poster: 2 color, all hand printed. Click for more info or to purchase.

Brand new releases are always exciting around here. Sure. But I’m *superduperextra* excited this month to share one of the new pieces that we’ve produced for Inara George, of the amazing band The Bird & The Bee, just one of a few new things we’re working on in collaboration with one of our favorite bands around this Fall.

This poster is a two-fer print, in a number of ways. First, this hand silkscreen printed poster covers 2  LA shows for Inara George this Fall on September 23rd at Bootleg Theater in and also at the Getty Center on November 5th with Van Dyke Parks. Second, we’ve used tricky overprints to get 3 bold colors from 2 screens. That’s our way! That’s what we love. We hope that you do too.

Simple, sweet but not always straightforward and deceptively complex. Hand silkscreened poster for 2 shows for the incomparable Inara George of The Bird & The Bee.

Mid-century throwback style always seems fresh, just like the lady herself. This is our all hand silkscreen printed poster for Inara George with hand mixed scarlet red and transparent cyan water-based acrylic screenprinting inks. Edition: 50, each of these limited edition posters are signed & numbered (by me, strawberryluna) Size: 16×22 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight.

This poster will also be available on tour and at shows with Inara George throughout this fall, and especially her show at The Getty Center on November 5th, as well as also from my website here and also in my Etsy shop here.

Like to know more about the hand silkscreen printing process? Boom! Photos below for you taken while hand pulling these posters in September of 2011. Even more process photos are over in my Flickr account too:

“The FLATSTOCK poster show series is presented by the American Poster Institute (API). It is an ongoing series of exhibitions featuring the work of many of the most popular concert poster artists working today.

The API is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to serving poster artists and promoting the art form. Both the API and its FLATSTOCK series were organized in 2002 as a result of conversations between interested artists and supporters frequenting the popular website GigPosters.com. The best concert posters have always captured both the essence of the music they promoted and the spirit of the time in which they were produced. This is as true today as it was in San Francisco during the Sixties.

The FLATSTOCK shows provide the general public with an ongoing series of opportunities to see fine poster art in person and to meet the artists who’ve created it — they provide the API with a way to present the poster artists collectively while showcasing the breadth of individual styles they represent.”
