A strange text popped up on my phone today, informing me I’d be getting a delivery from ‘Award Framers’. I had no clue what this was about but as predicted, the package arrived and I opened it to find…
Wow! I was genuinely shocked! A British Phonographic Industry Silver Record Award. I don’t tend to put too much stock in awards but I just held it up, staring at it, smiling but completely baffled!
I don’t know how these things work, whether the BPI always sends these out to whoever is credited with the artwork for the record, or whether the band or management create a list of people they felt contributed to the record’s sales, or whether I’ve just been presented with this by mistake…?
All I can say is I’m sincerely flattered to receive such a thing and very pleased that the artwork is considered to have contributed in however small a way to the success of the record.
As I have said before, I’m proud of the work I put into this, especially since it’s an independent release. The Public Service Broadcasting guys are decent, thoughtful people and deserve every success.
I’m very pleased to announce my 3rd screenprinted poster for Public Service Broadcasting.
This print commemorates their forthcoming appearance at Green Man Festival and is a 3 colour, hand-printed silkscreen print in a very limited edition of 60.
For festival goers, this will be available at the UKPA Poster Tent along with posters for some of the other acts playing the festival, other gigposters, artprints, tshirts, bags, and other goodies.
Last year we had a fantastic time showing, selling & talking about our work, so myself and my fellow artists are really looking forward to it once again – if you are headed to the festival please come and say hi and see our work!
If you aren’t going to the festival, I will be keeping a small number of posters back which will go up on my online shop when I get back. Keep an eye on my Twitter stream for when these go live.
As well as a new poster for PSB, I also produced a poster for my lovely Leeds friends HOOKWORMS:
Same deal as above – available at the festival with hopefully a few left over for the shop.
Here is the full set of posters our group have designed for the festival. Read more about the artists and the set on this UKPA blog page here: http://ukposterart.com/post/126506941113/ukpa-poster-series-for-green-man-2015
