Circa Survive, circa NOW!

Prepare yourself for RAZZLE DAZZLE. I am happy to let you all in on my newest band poster, this time for Circa Survive. The poster is currently for sale and I made an accompanying process video that documents the drawing that went into making this particular poster.

For starters, here’s the image:

This poster is a 3 color, screen printed poster on 17 x 22 inch 100 lb Steel Grey French cover paper in an edition of 100. The fire effect looks preeeetttayyyyy, prettttyyyy good and the pencil marks really come through quite nicely. This poster costs $25 and is currently available for sale at my online store.

I get lots of positive feedback on my process videos, which is great because I really have a good time making them. This newest one is no exception. This video shows the actual drawing process more than other videos I had made before. I usually don’t cover that area much because drawing requires focus and trying to operate the camera and draw can be difficult. Thanks to Jenna Puente for shooting the footage. Enjoy. Please leave comments in this blog if you have ideas for process videos or comments in general, I love hearing from you all.

    If I may, do you use any sort of special pen for your drawings? It looks like it might be a specialized utensil. Thanks.

    Just wondering if there will be an AP version?

    Hi mus42, there is no art print version of this print. In order to make something an art print, the text has to be separate enough from the rest of the image to be able to tape it off while printing. That limits the types of designs on can do, so i don’t do art prints all the time.

    Hey Dan!
    Good question AND you may. To answer your question, in that video, I am using a mechanical pencil, no different than any other mechincal pencil.

    I prefer to use mechanical pens because they don’t need sharpening. Also, for screen printing, using a wide variety of tonal pencils, like 2H and HB and 4B and such is hard to screen print, so sticking with one tone helps me out a lot.

    When I get a chance, I’ll make a blog post here soon detailing all my tools.
