The Great Northern Bicycle

This year, I am lucky enough to have had a print design chosen to be featured in a local show called Pinchflat.  The premise of the show is bike-themed posters created using any printmaking technique.  So I combined my love of bikes with my love of space and created a constellation - The Great Northern Bicycle.

Luckily, I know a lovely lady who works at a local print shop, Igloo Letterpress, and they agreed to allow us in to print after-hours.

 We hand-brayered each print to give them a more spacey look.  This means that every print is just a little bit different.  All of the text on the print is also hand-carved, which I think looks really cool.  The prints will be for sale at Wild Goose Creative in Columbus on May 4, and at Paradise Garage for the rest of the month.
