A Nice Surprise! - 'Art of the Day' on Artfinder

Some good news to tell you about... I just received a nice email from informing me that "A Dayglow Summer in Owlers Wood" is today's Art of the Day!

It's a screen print of Owlers Wood (in Slaithwaite) that I produced in 2012. I would tell you the full story behind the print, but you can read all about it over here :)

Screen Printed CD Covers for Matt Robson

I was busy at West Yorkshire Print Workshop on Monday, screen printing CD covers for Matt Robson's new album. It's very limited - only 20 copies available (with the decline in record sales that should be enough to get him into the album charts). You can also get it as a digital download.

I've been designing Matt's sleeves for many years now - since 2002 (back then he was recording as randomNumber).

I used to provide live video projections at his gigs too. The sleeve art and projections I was doing for him back in the noughties have had a big influence on the screen prints I produce now – so, it's nice that I'm now screen printing his sleeves.

Printing went like this...

And the finished product looks like this...

I'm very pleased with how they turned out :)

The album will be out very soon on Squirrel Records.
