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

Interview with me? Whatever, get over it.

The all round good eggs at Crewkoos have decided in their infinite wisdom that interviewing me would be a good idea. Bless them. The questions were good, it’s just the answers I have issues with. I suggest reading it, then setting fire to your computer / future phone and eyeballs so you never have to read it again. YOU CAN NEVER UNREAD THIS!

I expanded the daft idea to breaking point as people were getting bike pump/mascara confusion. It has gone to print, they will be available first in Chicago and then online.

Sharon Van Etten Poster

I made this process video on my iPhone last night and added a few elements in iMovie. I’m pretty happy with the results for my first try.

The poster is for Sharon Van Etten’s upcoming European tour and will be available on all dates and then from my Print Shop afterwards.
