These posters, some simple offset copies, others multi-color screen-prints, were created between 1995 and 1998 in what could only be described as "make-do" studios.
My first studio was the uninsulated top floor of a small standalone utility barn, barely tall enough for me to stand in upright. I used a single hand-stretched screen that was way too big and way too coarse. Between the kerosene heater and lacquer thinner, I'm surprised I made it through my first winter alive. For reference, the Vircks and Angel Record Show posters were both printed with lacquer stencils and Hunt Speedball inks. I advanced to a slightly better screen with a slightly better mesh for the Boxer poster. For some reason I used Pavonine textile inks for this one. I switched away pretty quickly.
My second studio was light-years better yet still not perfect. I moved into a proper space in Northeast Minneapolis, upgraded to custom aluminum frames, bought a massive drying rack, built an exposure unit, and utilized indoor plumbing. I also upgraded inks. I used Ink Dezyne's Hydra Plus line until the end. My personal favorites: Radio K, D-Day, Arial, Animal Farm, and Alias 8 Diner.
Anyway, this is a tiny glimpse into my brief but intense poster "history". Thank you for reading and enjoy the posters.
