Lawrence Cox is an English illustrator who uses a variety of printmaking techniques combined with digital media to create imaginative illustrations that could be lifted straight out of children’s books. Albeit a surreal children’s books. His illustrations often feature animals, including but not limited to; monkeys riding bikes, deer wearing socks, bears on swings and […]
What a riot: Rotterham-based design studio Letterproeftuin made a dinky little mobile printing installation for small posters and books for this year’s International Poster and Graphic Design Festival Chaumont, and it looks so cute we just want to open little pop-up bookstores everywhere now.
Dorte Naomi is a brilliant Danish artist who predominantly works with painting and printmaking. Her works are often dark and sexually implicit, but underneath all that darkness is a superbly insightful interpretation of human decay. Oh, and even better: she’s currently taking care of my old printing press, nicknamed ‘Big Robert’, because I can’t fit […]
George Raab is an Intaglio printmaker whose powerful images of the Canadian wilderness have earned him recognition and awards provincially, nationally and around the globe. Raab, who is based in Ontario, Canada, uses an etching needle and draws through the ground, exposing the metal beneath it. The plate is then immersed in an acid bath […]
Alastair Floyd has started this series of prints with images of scantily clad and shapely legs wearing little else but high heels. Avoiding typical trite and banal eroticism, his very first image directs us immediately to that of a model who has slipped up on the catwalk, making it clear he is intent on taking […]
Hazel Nicholls is a London-based artist and printmaker. Her blog reveals an insight into the working process that goes into creating her lovely screen-printed goods, which she sells through her Etsy shop. Her simple, graphic prints are influenced by a love of cross-stitch and an interest in old sayings and phrases, which are incorporated as typographical elements in her designs.
I once heard Tyler Krasowskisay: ‘To be a great printmaker, you first have to know how to draw. Then you have to learn how to carve. Then you have to know how to print it’. Krasowski’s work lies somewhere between the notebook sketches and a daydream. Whether it be an eyeball taking a boat ride he did for a Pearl Jam design, or a meat-grinding shark being bombed by fighter planes, he is going to take you on a hallucinogenic ride through the clouds. Just make sure you watch out for those giant flying snakes.
After focusing on traditional print making techniques in college, Pat made a career change and brought his hand hewn line quality to the editorial illustration market. With a foundation in strong drawing and composition, what distinguishes his work is the knack he has for finding the sinister undercurrent in even the most familiar situation. This ability has given him a loyal client base and a portfolio of very dark work.
I’m the one-man-machine behind The Best Part, a printmaking, graphic design, illustration studio in Orlando, Florida. My current work is an attempt at combining elements of humor, surprise and pop culture within the constraints of the screen-printing process.
Drawing from her experience as a printmaker (she was one half of Scotland-based printmaking duo Whitehaus), Cody Cochrane, now residing in her hometown of Toronto, makes amazingly layered and ornate paintings and murals that often incorporate Native American motifs with bizarre sexual humor.
Canadian printmaking student Andrew Remington Bailey turns his drawings into some pretty impressive prints considering he hasn’t graduated yet. His style draws from tribal patterns and graphic novels, and can range from grotesque to hauntingly beautiful.
I’m a sucker for just about anything to do with printmaking. UK illustrator Jonny Hannah makes a very strong case. Busy, colorful, spontaneous and brimming with inspiration, THIS is the stuff amazing is made of.
