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.

3-color silkscreen Tour poster for Sara Bareilles, click for more info or to purchase.

Oh yeah! We’ve got another set of new designs to share today, and this is a fun one for sure.

Back in the late spring one day I received a convo in my Etsy shop from the lovely Sara Bareilles about doing some new merch pieces for her upcoming tours. Holy smokes! What a sweetpea. After a few backs and forth talks with the team she has, and having the pleasure of seeing her play live as well as have a meeting in person with her in Pittsburgh we were able to get to work on a suite of designs for this amazing artist.

Huzaah! We worked to create a series of pieces, including a new Tour Poster, tote bag and tank top for Sara Bareilles’s lively merch table.

The Tour Poster (above) is available with Sara on tour as well as in her web store here, and we have a very limited number on our site for sale as well here.

The tote bag and tank top are both available exclusively from Sara’s merch tables on tour and in her web store here, so go on over and get your bad self outfitted!

Hello there! We’re really excited to finally share a new bit of design work with everyone. We were approached by the powerhouse design blog Design Milk
(huge shout out thanks to lovely Kelly at Design Crush for the recommendation) in May to be a part of their ongoing curated Designer Desktops series. Of course, being a fan of Design Milk for quite sometime I said yes right away.

Jaime, the founder of Design Milk, asked us to choose a design related quote and then work from there to create a suitable exclusive illustration for desktop backgrounds and Apple wallpapers. Preferably something which would also relate to design, naturally. When I came across this gem by Coco Chanel:

“I never wanted to weigh more heavily on a man than a bird.”

I fell in love instantly and we went with it. Read more about the inspiration for these designs here at Design Milk 

Our Designer Desktops are FREE and available for download in multiple formats exclusively at Design Milk here for the entire month of July. There are 4 sizes to choose from for standard computer monitors as well as an iPad & an iPhone version too. All especially formatted for perfection, of course! Click below to download any and all of these sizes:

1024×768

1280×1024

1680×1050

1900×1200

iPhone

iPad

So drop on by Design Milk and get your free, light as a bird new desktops and wallpapers and spiff up!

New release! Bright Eyes silkscreen poster

New! Our 4-color, hand silkscreen printed poster for Bright Eyes, Click to purchase or for more info!

 

Brand spanking new and fresh off the press, it’s our new poster for Bright Eyes for his show at Stage AE in Pittsburgh,

The music of Connor Oberst and Bright Eyes is like a beacon of individuality, sweetness, anger, and passion, at least that’s the way I hear it. When I first began printing at the community studio Artists Image Resource (AIR) in Pittsburgh, Bright Eyes was on heavy rotation during Open Studio nights and his voice still reminds me of that awesome time toiling away in that funny early stage of learning printmaking where you learn to love mistakes as much as you do successes.

In homage to all things organic, wise and bright this fella is our all hand silkscreen printed poster for the singular sound of Bright Eyes with hand mixed midnight black, teal, acrylic screenprinting inks. Edition: 150, 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.

Now available at my website here or also in my Etsy shop here.

Dig screenprinting? Have no clue what the hand printing process is like? Below are some process shots that I took while silkcreening this poster in my Flickr account:

New art print release: Rose Red!

Rose Red, my new 2-color hand pulled silkscreen print.

Rose Red, Dark, sweet, and full of secrets. Rose Red is the 2nd in print in my fairy tale inspired print series, (my now sold out print, The Lady & The Wolf was the first). I’ve been fascinated by, OK possibly addicted to, fairy tales and fables since I was very young. Their allure has yet to lose it’s magic, especially the older versions of fairy tales with darker themes and symbols.

These days, many people know these stories best as tales for children, however many of our most loved fairy tales have much more brutal original tellings than you might imagine something fit for little kids. I read folk & fairy tales obsessively, the darker the roots of the tale, the more I love it. It’s super interesting how the same stories appear in similar versions and places for both children and (especially originally) for adults as well.

Rose Red is my 2-color, all hand silkscreen printed art print using scarlet red and velvety black hand-mixed and non-toxic water based silkscreen inks. And yes! Edition of 200. Size: 16 x22 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: no acid, archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight. $25

Fresh off my press, hand printed and now available for purchase here at my website and also here in my Etsy shop.

Neato extra! This design is also available as a free iPhone & iPod Touch wallpaper at the super cool Poolga.com right here.

Are you a print nerd too? Check out some process photos from my Flickr account below.

 

Getting all set up to print Rose Red.

New print release: Going To See My Baby Yellow!

New, all hand screenprinted 6-color silkscreen art print Going To See My Baby Yellow available now! (Click for more info or to purchase.)

Spring is finally here! And to match the growing warmth and springy feel, here is a new silkscreen art print release! Going To See My Baby Yellow, a brand new colorway of my super popular art print about bicycles, love and that special glee. You know the feeling.

This hand-pulled & hand screenprinted happy day is a brand new colorway of a very popular print that I did in 2007, but in a super small edition for the Screens’n’Spokes fundraiser, now returned in fresh spring lemony yellow and soft sky-blue, just for you.

Going To See My Baby Yellow is my 6-color, all hand screen printed art print with fresh lemon yellow, bright bike red, dark grey, black and soft transparent sky-baby-blue hand-mixed and non-toxic water based silkscreen inks. And yes! The sky-baby-blue cloud breaks the margin/border just like a good cloud should, and it’s partially transparent over the white margin. Tweet! Edition of 200. Size: 16 x22 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: no acid, archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight.

For more information about this print, or to purchase, visit my website here or check out my Etsy shop here.

Some of the previous colorways like Baby Blue, Orange, Lavender, and Sage are now all sold out, enabling us to donate to a cause we really have close to our hearts, The National MS Society. And, a portion of the sale of each of these prints is donated to The National MS Society as well .
