New poster release! Paramore, 2011 Tour “Hands Up” poster

Click to purchase or for more info.


We’re mega excited about this one around here! Introducing our all hand silkscreen printed, limited edition poster for Paramore for their 2011 Tour.

The darker side of Spring exposed for the band Paramore here in our poster for them. We’re so stoked working with these guys on a Spring 2011 poster.
All things grow in Spring, but all things may not always be what you expect. Dark, sweet, and sharp. That’s the allure of Paramore.

Available for sale at my website here and also in my Etsy shop here, this my all hand screenprinted poster for Paramore with bright blue, midnight black and scarlet red hand-mixed acrylic silkscreen inks. Edition: 300 to the band (look for them on tour and from their website!) and an Artist’s Edition of only 50 posters is available for sale here. All 350 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.

Are you a Paramore Superfan? They you will love what they’ve done that’s all rad and high tech with their copies of our poster. Oh yeah! The future is here. Only at the Paramore webstore, each poster includes a QR code on the back that will take you to a website with three options for mobile wallpapers that feature three unreleased photos of the band. The QR code can only be scanned by those who have a camera phone with a barcode reader and internet connection on their phone.

And for you printmaking nerds (and I hope that you are, like me!) check out some process photos in my Flickr account too!

New poster released: Sleepy Sun

Click for more info, or to purchase.

doyoulikeawesomecaliforniapsychedelicmusic? Then you’re in luck! You might also dig my newest rock poster release, for the band Sleepy Sun.

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.) Paper: archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight.

And now, this Sleepy Sun poster is available for purchase at my website HERE or in my Etsy shop here.

New art prints released: Naptime & I Love My Books!

New 3 color hand silkscreened art print, "Naptime". (click to purchase or for more info.)

For a while now I’ve been wanting to try a new layout, a square one, and one that would fit right into an LP record frame. Well, that time has come.

It’s “Naptime”. We all get sleepy snuggly sometimes, and even natural-born enemies can be the best of friends. You just gotta let your softer side rule.

“Naptime” is the first print in that size and layout. From an illustration that I did a few weeks ago while hanging out on a lazy Sunday afternoon off, while we were totally being summer tv heads. Probably we were watching some cooking shows, or Holmes On Holmes (my new obsession) or such like television.

Anyhoo, I also decided rather than waste paper or have a weirdly shaped cast off, as the 12×12 inch size is smaller than my normal print & paper size, that I would run a smaller print at the same, 2-up. (2-up means printing 2 or more designs on the same page at the same time, cutting them down and apart after printing.) So, I did an ode to books for the secondary smaller design, as below, called “I Love My Books”. ‘Cause I do.

New 3-color (with overprints) mini art print, "I Love My Books", hand screenprinted. (click ot purchase or for more info.)

All sunny and warm, just like this summer. Both “Naptime” and  “I Love My Books” prints are now available at my website here and also in my Etsy shop here. And, for some process photographs of the hand screenprinting process, take a look below. Click on any image below to see more & get more info at my Flickr account too.

Some new strawberryluna releases!…?…!

Ok, I won’t lie. This summer and well, now early fall have been breakneck speed work, travel to several shows all over the country (Chicago Flatstock, Seattle Flatstock & Chicago Renegade, to name a few), packing orders (with many prints and posters now sold out) and more work for me here at strawberryluna World Wide HQ. So much so that I seem to have forgotten to update my ol’  bloggery here with a few “new” prints and posters. Whoopsie daisy Maisy!

So, without further chit chat, I bring you some “new” releases! Ooooohhhhh…

First up, POSTERS:

Hey, remember Joe Cocker? The man was and IS a rock’n’roll animal to the core. And, he’s been touring pretty much non-stop since the John Belushi SNL skit days, (too young to know what I’m talking about? Weren’t watching SNL as a little kid like I was? Learn here whippersnapper.) Anyway, I had the supreme honor of doing a poster for his show at the Delta Classic Chastain Park Ampitheater in Atlanta, GA.

Offset printed, 4-color, CMYK poster for the incomparable Joe Cocker.

Next up, is my rainy day homage to one of my favorite US cities: Seattle! For one of the premier rock poster shows, Flatstock, designers & poster artists have free range to produce a poster for each Flatstock and it’s super fun to do. This year for Seattle’s Flatstock, which happens during the Bumbershoot Music Festival, I made a little play on Seattle & Pittsburgh’s similarity – rain. This poster is based on an illustration that I’ve had floating around for about a year and that I really wanted to use, so I added some musical notes and textures and a lil mod-city in the background to finish the layout. Hope that you dig.

And next, let’s get caught up with strawberryluna Art Prints:

And, just in time for autumn, I’d like to premier my Summer 2009 art print, the next new print in my Seasons series. Oh yeah! On time like a bus on a sleeting Christmas Sunday. And not a hair too soon before my Fall 2009 print is done and ready. Ho, ho ho. Loads of overprints dominate this hand screenprinted breezy summer lovin’ expression.

Hand screenprinted, 7-color art print, Summer 2009. Available at my website now. Click to purchase or for more information.

And lo & behold,  last but not least, my most recent art print, the newest colorway of my super popular Going To See My Baby print, this time is fall-ready orange.  Hence the name, Going To See My Baby Orange. Tricky! I know. Who doesn’t love love?

New colorway of my 5-color, hand screenprinted art print, Going To See My Baby Orange. Available on my website now. Click to purchase or for more information!
