I wish that I could make that super awesome jazzy “heist” drums sound effect music to go with this poster, you know the one right? Ahhh well!

We loooove The National and are so excited to be working with them again on a 3rd poster. This poster is a part of the official European Tour Poster series for The National, arranged by The Richard Goodall Gallery in the UK.

Edition: 150. 60 copies were sold on tour with the band, 15 copies will be available through the Goodall Gallery in Manchester in Britain and the remaining copies will be available here. All 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 was sold at the show in Copenhagen and I have just a portion of the run available for sale here, so they will go quick! Now available for purchase here at my website, or in my Etsy shop here.

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…

New poster released: The National

3-color, all hand screenprinted silkscreen poster for The National. (Click for more info or to purchase.)

Alright! Brand new poster release here for the amazing band The National, as you can see from above.

And, we finally were able to catch them live. And dudes, their reputation is not only solid gold, but it perfectly earned and well deserved.

We arrived at the show early in order to get our posters to the merch table ASAP, and then it was time to relax outside of the beautiful Carnegie Library of Homestead Music Hall grounds in Homestead with a glass of wine and a lovely fall night gathering on the hill. It was pretty spectacular. And things only got better as we met up with our super friends Sarah & Scott from The Wreckids. Sarah had toured with The National in a past band (Boxstep) and invited us to hang out with her & the guys in The National after the show. Rock star sweetpeas, that’s all I can say about the end of the evening. HUGE thanks to The National for the amazing show, the hospitality backstage afterwards and the giggles.

Info about this new poster for The National, with Owen Pallett:

All hand screenprinted poster for their September 25, 2010 show at The Carnegie Music Hall, in Homestead, Pittsburgh, PA. Now available here at my website and here in my Etsy shop.

Etheral & earthbound, all at once. That’s sort of the charm of the amazing band The National. We love this band, and we’re thrilled to be working with them again too on a poster for our hometown, Pittsburgh.

This is our hand screenprinted, limited edition silkscreen poster for The National with dark sky blue, dark yellow and light blue hand mixed inks. Edition of 150, signed and numbered (by me, strawberryluna). Size: 16 x22 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight.

This poster was sold at the show and on tour with the band, and I have just a small number for sale, so they will go quick. Now available at my website here. I design & hand screenprint my prints and posters. If you have any questions, just let me know.

Here are some quick process shots, too, with more & nicer ones to come soon in my Flickr account.

Renegade Craft Fair Brooklyn reminder! Come say hellos!

Just a quick reminder that I will be in Brooklyn, NY this weekend at the fabulous Renegade Craft Fair, and so looking forward to it!

Renegade Craft Fair is one of the premiere independent DIY showcases of all things art, craft, and handmade. Renegade Craft Fairs are held in several cities across the US every year – including Brooklyn, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles & Austin.  The fair is known for being one of the first events of its kind, and for having the top-notch indie-craft artists and designers who travel from all over the map to participate. Renegade got its start in Chicago’s Wicker Park in the fall of 2003, and has spread like wildfire ever since.

With over 300 artists coming together in historic McCarren Park in Brooklyn to sell our handmade work, this year’s Renegade Craft promises to be as amazing as ever, if not more so. There will live music and live craft demonstrations, as well as an hourly raffle of goodies at theEtsy booth too. AND!  Renegade Craft Fair is wide open to the public and 100 % FREE to attend too.
