Eloy Morales :: Hyperrealistic selfies

Eloy Morales :: Hyperrealistic selfies

I usually have no time for the constant stream of cringe worthy selfies people inflict on us through the internet however Eloy Morales has taken the selfie to the next level gaining it some credibility with his INCREDIBLE hyperrealistic paintings.
Based in Madrid, Eloy’s insane paintings take detail to a whole new level, however this strong focus on detail is not what his concentration is about. Choosing to use himself as a subject (or occasionally his close friends / family) enables the artist to depict his emotions and thoughts at that exact moment in time, and he does it very, very well.

Thanks to our good friends over at Boko Creative, we have an awesome video that documents the fun we had at the last printmaking show. Have a look and come along to our next one. Feature


Video :: Mr Smith’s Letterpress Workshop

Kevin Smith talks about letterpress as a manual process away from the digital Mac driven white paper print out. He likes to get hands on and build things and this wonderful video shows just that.


Video :: 1/1

1/1 is a collection of experiments with letterpress printing. The constructive elements of IKEA® products substitute the traditional wooden printing letters and they become the printing die for limited editions. So can a stool or a door be used to impress their outline railtracks can become typographic, figurative or abstract compositions. The same elements can then be assembled back in the objects they belonged to. By doing so they get back their functionality, but they keep a sign of the printing process, they took part in and become themselves unique industrial products.


Video :: Jack Daniels Letterpress

Ok, so this video is also amaaaazing! A splash of Jack Daniels goes into the final black layer of this tremendous handcut letterpress poster. Yee-Haw Industries all the way!

Video :: Letterpress

A beautifully shot instructional video for letterpress by Naomie Ross. Sorry for the overload on letterpress at the moment, I may have gone a bit bonkers about it.


Video :: Handmade & Bound

Here is a lovely little video from the Handmade & Bound, book-art and zine fayre. Shot by James Devereaux-Ward.


Video :: Letterpress Coasters

The cinematography in the video is awesome. It’s from 2009 but hey, the letterpress process is far older. It makes me want a nice whiskey.


Video :: Typeface

In rural Wisconsin, a lone employee waits in a cavernous old museum for visitors to come. A few individuals straggle in every few days and then, come Friday, the museum fills with life. Machines hum, presses print, artists buzz about. One weekend each month, the quiet of Two Rivers is interrupted as carloads of artisans drive in from across the Midwest. The place comes alive as printmaking workshops led by, and filled with, some of the nation’s top design talent descend on the sleepy enclave.

A little something that all of you creatives might be interested in regarding copyright and sharing.


Video :: Glitches

I am very inspired by data bending, glitches and datamoshing in the digital world, and how this can be translated into the world of print. Check out this VideoGlitch page.
