What could me more fitting for a book celebrating collector’s edition graphic design than a limited edition, hand drawn artist series of its own.

Puck Collective returned to Pick me up this year with their dope transfer Tattoo Studio “Puckleduster” – beautifully set up (of course) with framed designs and chairs inviting the public to get their own tattoo. I was also lucky enough to bump into the amazing illustrator John C Thurbin who was busy working on a Lino – print. The Middlesex university graduate is a London based print-maker and illustrator who makes staggering imagery with attention to detail and precision through his strong focus on Lino-cut and ink – definitely one to watch Feature
This week we have the guys from Catalogue Studio in Leeds contributing to the site. Both Tom and Oliver know what they are talking about when it comes to anything print related. We are very fond of their work and are very happy that they are adding to People of Print.
Luke Frost is one third of Heretic and two thirds horse, or so we are lead to believe. Either way, he is this weeks contributor and he will be cooking up some delights for you all. Luke has a really impressive portfolio of screen prints, but that’s not all he does. Illustration, design, printmaking and general creative idea generation (often nonsense) are all in his skill book. We are very excited to have him contributing.
Do you have a passion for print and a flare for editorial work? We are looking for a new person to be our contributor.

This coming week we have Charlie from Beach London contributing to our site. He has a lot of awesome things lined up for your viewing pleasure. He clearly has an eye for all things that are awesome because he directs what is on display in his store. We are very fond of this guy and he likes to make a strong punch at his private views.
