I was asked to hang and sell a few posters at the POSTED poster art show this Thursday in Pittsburgh.
I decided to use this as an excuse to try a few new (to me) printing methods. On this one, I carved my "Speak Softly & Hustle Hard" piece into a lino block and broke out the brayer for a small series of block prints.
Hit the @2x and check the shot of the actual block carving in the attachment!

For the second piece for the POSTED show, I tried my hand at stencil printing.
This was an old design I came up with while working on some branding for a local company that was never used. I cut it into one of these great stencil films I found at the hobby shop, and used some black block printing ink to roll it onto some 20"x16" black canvas sheets.
Hit the @2x for details and there's also a shot of the stencil attached.
(PS - Photographing black-on-black prints ain't easy.)

... stunningly beautiful!
ai ai ai!!!
How hard was it to cut those lines in? Seams like those all those curves would be a pain in the ass. Also, let me know if you don't sell them all. I would love to have one of these.
@Arno Kathollnig @Kossyo Kokalanov @Mister Fiksit - Thanks, y'all!
@Bob Ewing - Like a lot of things, it's tricky at first, but after a while, you...
*puts on sunglasses*
...get into a groove. I'll definitely let everyone know if there are any left. :)
Ryan, I have no doubt. Practice makes...
Would love to hear more about how you did this. Did you just ink them and hand press them or use some type of press?
love the looks of this, curious too about @Bob Ewing 's question :)
I need to purchase one of these. Can we make that happen? Please? :)
def. interested in one of these as well
@Bob Ewing @Florin Capota - Yeah, I just inked them with a brayer and laid each piece of paper on top and used the trusty ol' Hamrick press. :)
@Virginia Poltrack @James Martin - After the show's over, I'll get whatever's left back and put them up on my site. :)
Just added three new prints/posters to my shop and restocked some others.
If you were waiting for me to get some of these back from the POSTED show here in Pittsburgh, the time has come and there's a few left for purchase!
Quantities are extremely limited for each of these, and none of them will be made the same way again, so don't delay if you want one.
