Working for the Metro in Chicago I created a 3 color poster silkscreen poster for the band Starfucker. In print they often use the letters STRFKR. This poster has a very graphic shapes which will make printing alot easier. Here are some pics from the process:
Creating the letterforms separations.
After burning the screens > mixing the first color:
Layer 1 light pint, there seems to be quite a bit of show through with the pink on the black paper this is going to require a few hits to make it opaque. Its going to be a long night.
Layer 2 darker pink:
Layer 3 metallic silver:
Done and Done!
Nostalgia used to be so much better . . . to paraphrase a quote from John Hodgman. Here are a few shots from my limited skateboard abilities when I was a younger upstart. The animated gif was made with a toy camera photos by Ken Richardson.

Ever wanted to run away with the circus? Let the band Cirkestra be your soundtrack with its brand of eastern European circus music. I worked with Cirkestra on their winter tour poster that I hand lettered (the main type) and made a 5 color silkscreen. Check them out if you get a chance but don’t forget your fez.
Delia Richardson stopped by the studio to be on press for her 6th birthday invites. She wanted a butterfly with the number 6 on it, and we used a transparent yellow so when it overprinted blue to get the greens. Delia helped out with the printing process with the racking of the paper and pulled a few prints. Photos by Ken Richardson check out his work at www.kenrichardsonphoto.com
