New Art Print Release: Elephants Never Forget

New 4-color, silkscreen printed art print "Elephants Never Forget", click for more details or to purchase from my website.

Hooray! I finally had the chance to print a new art print that I’ve been wanting to do for a long, long time. Introducing our new “Elephants Never Forget” hand pulled silkscreen art print. Sharp-eyed strawberryluna aficionados may recall a similar illustration from a poster for Xiu Xiu from way back in 2006. We still liked these two so much, we brought them back to life in a new hand pulled silkscreen art print.

Freshly available for purchase here at my website and also in my Etsy shop here.

Elephants really don’t forget a thing. And when you’ve found your perfect match, what’s to forget? Fall in love, stay in love. It’s simple!

  • I love elephants.
  • They are amazing and noble creatures.
  • I think they are perfect to symbolize the “forever” part of being in love.

Elephants Never Forget is my 4-color, all hand screenprinted love forever art print with hand mixed Cyan, Magenta and Black inks. Super fun overprinting layers of ink make a soft purple where Magenta & Cyan overlap. Magic! Edition of 200. Size: 16 x22 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: no acid, archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight.

Additional photos below are from my studio during the hand silkscreen printing process. Click any image below to see more process photos in my Flickr account too.

New poster released: Belle & Sebastian, UK Tour poster!

 

New Belle & Sebastian UK Tour poster, 2-color & all hand screenprinted. (Click for more info or to purchase.)

Huge big yay! So excited yet again, we just can’t help it. Belle & Sebastian are pretty much my favoritest favorite band, and have been for well close to 15 years. So, we’re beyond-all-reason-honored and thrilled to have been able to design and hand screenprint their limited edition 2010 United Kingdom Tour promotional show poster (our 4th poster for the lovelies from Glasgow).

 

Write About Love, love.

Simply put? They’re the bestest.

This time we did a blue companion poster to our North American Tour Poster (See it HERE) and the start of a love letter is my all hand screenprinted poster for the fantastic Belle & Sebastian with peacock blue and midnight black hand-mixed acrylic silkscreen inks. An Artist’s Edition of 100 is available here, and 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 will be available at shows on the UK tour dates, and here as I have just a portion of the run available for sale here, so they will go quick!

Now onsale & available for purchase from my website & webstore here and also available at my Etsy shop here.

And lo! A few process photos are below, taken while hand screenprinting this poster. Click on any of the below images to see larger versions and more at my Flickr account.
