Conquistador- Bronze Age Colorway

I've wanted to make a new colorway print of Conquistador for a long time now and I finally made time to do it. The first edition has been pretty much sold out ( I have 3 left ) and I thought the time was nigh....

So, this one is 6 colors, all bronzes,coppers, reds and yellows and gold. Lots of overprinting goodness. I made all new separations for each layer which was fun for me as it added an element of improvisation that will keep this edition unique. Printed on 22 x 30 stonehenge "sand" 100% Rag paper, it is signed and numbered in an edition of 75.

After 4 colors:

Printing the 5th color:

Prints, drawings, art giveaway, all sorts of stuff

So, this is a long post as I didn't really post last week at all. Too busy printing and drawing!
The week started off with shows at the Metro, and Schuba's in Chicago that I made posters for . Okkervil River on Monday at the Metro, and Crooked Fingers at Schuba's on Tuesday.

The Okkervil river poster sold out at the show, I do have more of the edition available , although they are selling extremely fast.

The Crooked Fingers poster turned out nice. So nice that I decided to make an art print version as well!

I also decided to run this contest to give away an original piece of scratchboard art, this one used for the Black Keys Boston Poster last spring. I am selling 50 random art tubes, each containing a random keys poster from the spring, a random awesome art print, and 2 other random posters or shop test prints. They are truly a steal!! I have 10 slots left , so hurry up and buy one, you could be the proud owner of this piece!

And Lastly, drawings. Lots and lots of drawings. I'm putting up 5-10 every day this week in my etsy shop , all for 50-125 bucks each. Super cheap , yes. Super great, yes. Many of these are subtle little colored pencil mixed media ink drawings, so jump on it!

The Black Keys at the Ryman Auditorium

I was stoked to get to make a poster for this show. Wish I could be there to a) See the BK play a historic place like the Ryman and b) See JESCO WHITE, the Dancing Outlaw. (See video below!)

SO there are 2 versions- the standard version on French Orange paper, and the um, other version on this nice deep French Brown Construction paper. Available NOW in my Etsy Shop. Posters are 19 x 25 inches, signed and numbered.

And Now Ladies and Gentlemen: Mr Jesco White:

Robert Pollard's Boston Spaceships

I wish I could have actually gone to this show tonight....The new record is great!

Ah well. Here's the show poster- 4 colors, 18 x 24. 2 split fountains and a metallic gold highlight layer. I'll admit I laughed a lot when printing this poster. As usual this poster looks about 20 times better than this jpg.

Available now in my Etsy shop.
