A team of Up The Mesh Count printers is in the studio today working on the posters for the upcoming exhibition, opening at Artspeak Gallery on October 24. Get details here: https://facebook.com/upthemeshcount
Our new co-op student Karla has only been with us for a few days and she’s already picked up the screenprinting like a pro. Check out some of the work she’s already helped print!
We’ve just finished up our last print job for the month, this client-designed poster for some upcoming concerts by local musician Allison Brown. Allison took part in our June session of Up The Mesh Count where she designed the screenprinted red background, and I added the letterpress text afterwards.
We just finished these two fun new greeting card designs with linocut banners on screenprinted backgrounds. They’re available now in the studio shop!
Another great session of Up The Mesh Count is in the can, as evidenced by our very full drying rack!
