Printing with Charlotte. First things to be printed in the new studio.

Little print job for Charlotte.  I printed her ace drawings onto some t-shirts, which she made as presents to take to friends in San Fransisco. Jealous!

New studio in Hope Mill, Manchester.

So my good friend Jannine Obermaier(proffesional seamstress and general top guy) and I, have teamed together and got a pretty spectacular studio in Manchester's Hope Mill, Ancoats. We've been there less than three weeks and it already looks like we've been living there over a year. Hoarders. Mass hoarders. Some seriously big things are going to be produced here, hold onto your pants guys, the world isn't ready.
So the plan is : Myself  - Design killer patterns and hand screenprint these onto fabrics
Jannine - Turn these fabrics into wonderful handmade garments, such as dresses, shirts, capes, bags...

This is all too exiting, and i must get back to work. I will update you all on our first piece as soon as.

 So the Sheffield football derby is fast approaching, and joshua Fenton Thomas thought it be a grand idea to prepare - by making some special sheffield wednesday silkscreen print t-shirts, complete with 'tango man' emblem.

Together we combined our skills and created these beasts. lets see how many people will want them at the match.  Hopefully, it'll be a brawl! Or they'll be covered in pie and beer within the first hour.

A new Psychedelic Screenprint!

I used some pretty delectable colours; turquoise, copper, fluorescent red, silver, and 'glow in the dark' - but thats a surprise until you get them home and slap them on your wall!

Apologies for the hairy photos - taken on an old blackberry camera. Professional i know, but you'll be able to see them better, up for sale in the Grotto! Go on take a look. 

So, despite the lack of space in the bedroom, i managed to print 25 six layer Silkscreen prints, ready for sale at the soup kitchen market, and Grotto at the chinese arts centre - Northen quarter, Manchester. (£25 - would make a sweet christmas gift!)
