So I said that a few weeks ago I'd be posting lots of exciting news; screen-prints and an interview amongst other 'exciting' things. Well, they all happened but I've just been a bit too busy to show them off on here.
Enough rambling and on to this little project that I completed for my now-Canadian buddy Paul Elam, better known as Fieldhead within the ambient / noise scene.
I was contacted by GZH records and Paul to screen-print an insert to accompany Fieldhead's upcoming release 'Riser'. The 10 inch EP would contain five tracks, each based around vocal recordings made by five female vocalists. With this in mind I wanted to create artwork that would represent the five female vocalists, a repetitive minimalist aesthetic (to illustrate the genre of music) and ultimately something that would look nice and that you'd like to get.
Enough rambling, some pictures please...
I then burned the image onto a screen. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of this, so here is a shot of the screen with azocol emulsion drying... exciting!
Whilst this was doing it's business I got mixing the paint. When I made the file in Photoshop the print was intended to be pure black but upon arrival at the print studio I found some silver, which would give the print a nice metallic finish. Oh and yes, I am sponsored by Lucozade. It makes me go the extra mile, etc.
If you fancy ordering a copy of Fieldhead's warm and fuzzy soundscapes (which comes with my personal stamp of approval) then you can do so from here. It of course comes with my screen-printed insert and download codes for MP3 heads, though it obviously deserves to be played on your record player to hear it in all it's glory.
Coming soon; that interview, posters for Dinosaur Pile-Up, Maps & Atlases and Esben & The Witch and a painting for a limited record release / exhibition but more on that soon.
Take care my little cherubs.
