Rockets Screenprint

Today I'm very happy to add a new screenprint to my online shop. It's called 'Rockets' and it's bloomin' massive (well comparatively, for me at least). It was handsomely printed by Julie and Natalie at Early Griffin Press and I have a small number of the limited run of 50 to shift here. So, let the shifting commence!

'Rockets' is a two-colour screenprint printed on very nice, archival quality, acid free 200gsm white Heritage paper. It measures 40cm x 50cm (a good size for framing) and comes to you, friend, signed and numbered by the artist (me) for just £40. It's so highly detailed that the photos don't quite do it justice as, honestly, it's pretty hard to take a picture of without it looking all compressed and weird.

If you don't know Early Griffin, check them out here. They're a small screenprinting company who work closely with invited artists to produce a series of screen prints in limited editions of 50, with 3 artists in each series. My print, part of series 5, sits alongside some awesome work by Hannah Waldron and Christopher Bettig.

Actually, this print has finished for a wee while now - I've just been delayed in posting about it because of the whole moving house thing and, strangely, some difficulty in finding decent cardboard tubes to post them out in. Well delayed no longer! I've got my tubes at the ready should anyone wish to pick one up, you can do so: here.

One more thing, to celebrate the launch of 'Rockets' (ho ho) I'm planning a special 'Rocket Launch' giveaway next week (from Monday 18th October), so stay tuned to the blog (perhaps subscribe?) and my Twitter (perhaps follow?) for more details. Also, I can't pull any favours for tweets / links / blogs pointing this way, but maybe doing so would increase your karma and therefore your luck a little? No, no, I kid. I'll be fair. I will simply love you forever if you shout me out.
