Poster-Maker Profile : Clint Wilson

We have a treat for the pop-pickers who are heading along to our poster show – how about some posters for Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift gigs? Yes yes yes!
That’s not the sum total of Clint’s work but it’s certainly worth a mention we feel…

Clint hails from Austin Texas and was one of the very cool and hospitable hosts to the travelling poster-makers who headed that way to take part in the Flatstock convention… so you know, there was an awful lot of bbq and beer going on over there – every night! It was actually tricky to get to see a band over there for all the ale and cooked meats flying around – wow.

So yes, we hope y’all will extend a hearty welcome to the posters of our transatlantic friend, come and grab a tube-full.

Look out for very professionally printed wares on good quality stock, they feel real good and are registered perfectly… there’s a real range of formats, including portraiture and textural space vistas

Screen-Printed Gig-Poster : Crystal Stilts – Fritte

A riotous German invasion is under way, employing the simplest of methods to secrete themselves onto British soil – the postal service – and it was us who invited them ladies and gentlemen!
What with Hamburg having played host (most hospitably) to Europe’s biggest poster expo (Flatstock) for what must be approaching ten years now, it would have been quite wrong to not include work by these guys.

Screen-Printed Gig-Poster : Metz – Mitchum d.a.

The 5 artists who are participating have sent some real treats in their own various styles…

Look out for Fritte’s dynamic graphic style, perhaps the result of his woodblock and lino-cut skills… for the vivid and somewhat deranged imagination of Mitchum d.a. (he’s quite a tinker)… for the long tall whimsical wall-pleasers of Grace Helly… for the soft and carefully considered blends of Senor Burns… and for the strong, traditional and frankly masterful graphic communication of Lars Krause.

In their own words :
“Churchill said ‘The Huns are always either at your throat or at your feet’ 

…If we might add, now you can also put them on your walls.”
