These awesome aged looking crates were built by Craig Pearce at Union Wood Company. I printed the text using black waterbase. I love these, they would be great for vinyl records.

Livestock and talented Vancouver based artist Ben Tour recently teamed up to put out some really rad prints. Four different t-shirt designs in all printed with water-based and discharge inks. One of the designs I screen printed onto rag paper and then Ben Tour came down and personally embellished each one differently. The pictures below are ones I snapped for my personal portfolio, but if you check out the Livestock blog they have some really nice ones up taken with a far superior camera. They also have several snaps of Ben doing the embellishment of the 44 limited edition prints. If you wanna get these duds they are now on sale at Livestock’s Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver stores as well as online. Shout out to the guys who sign my cheques at Proper Design. Everything was done in their shop and Brian is MixMaster SEPS no doubt. Just look at that detail…

If you haven’t heard of the movie MACHOTAILDROP then you definitely need to…..
The film is going to be awesome and will be finally commercially released this spring, starring Anthony Amedori, James Faulkner and pro skater Rick McCrank.
This is the Willy Wonka of skateboard films.
The print that we did is the same “Man Wolfs” image you see on the backs of the gang, shown at the end of the trailer. We printed a handful of back patches to be used for new denim vests in an upcoming tv commercial advertising the new “Man Wolfs” skate shoe. Apparently, most of the original vests have been misplaced, so we took to the task of re-equipping the posse. Also printed were 100 or so t-shirts for inner circle cast/crew distribution and also for members of the real Man Wolfs motorcycle club. I’m rocking my honorary “Wolf” tee below. pretty stoked.
The print is a 5 color. Off-White, Red, Yellow, Blue and Black.
On the canvas back patches it’s a regular plastisol print, but on the tees the off-white base is off-white discharge. After printing the discharge I flash cure the ink completely before printing the remaining 4 colours overtop. The result is a nice light print instead of a heavy plastic mat.

I did this print a few weeks back at Proper Design. The company is called Stupid Jungle Animal and the’re based out of Winnipeg. You can view all the prints I did up on their site, but here’s a couple pictures I took of the most noteable design in the bunch. It’s a 4 color done in plastisol ink.

I did this print for the guys over at Sharks & Hammers in Gastown. It’s one of many designs we printed a couple weeks ago for their “Welcome to East Van” clothing line. The print is done with plastisol ink.
I did the print as 3 colors on the black shirts: White base, Grey and White Highlite. The black from the t-shirt creates the black in the image. On white shirts I printed a big black box in waterbase ink before printing the other three colors on top.

Here is a super rad Yoda screen print that was just released August 26. The 17″x24″ was available on Mondotees.com, but the limited edition of 385 seems to have already sold out.
Here is what Todd had to say about the piece:
“From the first time that I saw Star Wars, I was captivated by the mystery of Yoda’s species and home world. For Yoda, Dagobah was a place to disappear, and I see him as being at one with the landscape. For this print I wanted to camouflage him as a part of this murky planet using leaves, sticks, ferns and other flora found in the swamps. The image is printed on black paper with a shiny black varnish layer in the background. The varnished layer reveals even more of Dagobah and is shown as a transparency through Yoda’s face. The kanji (japanese characters) on the left side gives one word representations of the six stages I identified in Luke’s Jedi training: the meeting of a great warrior, the discovery of a Jedi’s strength, entering of a domain of evil, learning that size matters not, seeing the future and finally, the confrontation of Vader. The screen print is seven colors, which is the most I’ve done to date.”

I have recently decided to start making the time to post my work on this site. It’s been quite a while since I’ve done anything with this blog, but that’s going to change.
