Posters


We’re heading down to Austin for our first pilgrimage to Flatstock, the big poster convention put on each year at SXSW by the API. We’re hoping to sell some posters, swill some margaritas / eat real mexican food, and attempt to see some music.

Some of the people who’s stuff we are looking forward to seeing: The Decoder Ring (these guys actually did the graphics for all of SXSW this year–way to go, F2 Design / Dirk Fowler, Lure, and Methane Studios.

We’ll be printing up some of the above posters to send down to Austin ahead of time to promote the show. If you live in Texas you should come.

Brad and I spent the last couple of days leading up to our show putting together a letterpressed, oversized “matchbook” that contains a checklist of our first 50 posters. We finished these about 20 minutes before 7:00 on Friday night. Click here for more pics (more…)

Big Diffy was a hit (check), we sold a couple of posters (check) and people appeared to be enjoying themselves(check). Friday night at White Hills was fun. Thanks to everyone who came out. Click here for more pics. (more…)

To celebrate our 50th screenprinted poster and our new print studio digs, we are throwing a little shin-dig at White Hills on Friday February 9th. If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by for a beer or four. We’ll have everything we’ve ever laid down put up in chronological order, plus a couple of test prints and art prints just for the show. You’ll also be able to check out some of Dovetail’s handmade wares and see the world premiere of the Big Diffy live musical act–singing and song-writing by 1/2 of our friends over at Milk Baby.

A friend of mine who happens to be both an OSU alumnus and a poster fanatic recently asked if I’d be interested in designing and printing a series of posters to commemorate some of the big games this year. I said yes, and the project has resulted in three posters so far. This poster, a three-color silkscreen, was done for the upcoming national championship game. If you’d like, you can see the others here and here. Production of this print was made possible by Pabst.
