Screen-Printed Gig-Poster : QOTSA – Michael Cowell

If we didn’t know for sure that Michael Cowell came from Nottingham originally, we’d have suspected he landed in London after a battle in Asgard. Often making posters for artists from the darker, heavier, doomier parts of the spectrum we are impressed that his eardrums are still in good working order…

Look for posters encrypted with iconography, totemic imagery and mystic runes, there is some deeper story locked in the symbolism.

Poster-Maker Profile : Jemma Treweek

Screen-Printed Gig-Poster : She Keeps Bees – Jemma Treweek

Jemma is one of only 4 female poster designers exhibiting in The Stick Up this year – we hope to address that balance in future shows, as this is not a totally male dominated industry… Anyhow, unashamedly girly, we think Jemma’s pieces will add a flavour that would have been missed in it’s absence…  parma violets probably.

Look out for bright attention grabbing colours and fanciful details that betray her background in textile and pattern design.
