United Prints Of America - USA Print

I have been inspired for a number of years now by Sufjan Stevens’ grand but ultimately ill fated attempt to create a record for each state in America. He only got to two before he gave up and started alienating me with records about bridges but those two records for me are his finest. Straight away I have beat his two and I see this being an ongoing project, but only if I vista more places.


The first idea I came up with turned out to be the show poster and from that I came up with this variant. The name of the show “United Prints of America” seemed to make sense and from there it was an easy leap to this idea. The only tricky part was keeping it minimal enough and sticking to my unwritten two colours only rule. I ended up settling at three but I think the detail on making the frames pop out are essential.

New Shows

I will be showing some work at Flatstock SXSW in Austin, TX next week. There are around 100 artists so there will be so much amazing work on display. I have a load of new work debuting at Flatstock so if you get chance come along.

I have some pieces of work hung up at Flannels in Leeds as part of Flyposting 2. There is some lovely work from artists all over the world and it is a great space.

I have a new art print available from this weekend at Gallery 1988 as part of their Product Placement show. The idea was to create an advert for a product that only exists within a movie or tv show. I’m really happy with my print.

I also have a bunch of new shows coming up, first off it’s Manchester Print Fair, then Primavera Sound Festival.

See you there hopefully x

This is a response to Drew Millward's recent Keep Calm And Carry On idea. His was a lot less subtle but also lot funnier. This will never be printed, it's just a stupid idea that I did on my lunch and it checks off three bugbears I have in one poster; 3D, unlicensed movie posters & Keep Calm And Carry On posters. None of these things are funny or clever and they only serve to make the world a worse place. And now I've made one myself and contributed to the inevitable downfall of western civilisation. Rant Over!
Cheers,
