Printing a Beach House Poster


JAMES - I've gotten great use of my new printing studio this past week, finishing three great posters for upcoming shows by the XX, Yeasayer, and Beach House. The last two days I spent printing the Beach House poster - a four color poster on beautiful "Grape Jelly" paper. I just made a quick little video roughly documenting the printing process. I'll elaborate on the creation of the poster once it's closer to the show date (April 30), but for now here's what I did this weekend:

Great video ,man. I love watching 'behind the scenes' type stuff. I think it gets us artists inspired to keep making art. Sexy wardrobe change too!

Great video and great poster. It makes me miss silk screening. I liked the peanut breaks, for me it's zebra cakes every few hours haha.
