Pinball Art Prints is a series set up to celebrate the bold and vibrant art of classic pinball machines.
Along with fellow print making artists Luke Drozd and Drew Millward, I was asked to create a design to be made into a silkscreen art print.
Here’s what I came up with:
And here’s some blurb about what I hoped the piece would capture:
“There’s something really compelling about the space under the glass on a pinball table. Like a miniature theme park or haunted house, full of lights and trapdoors and moving parts, waiting to be explored. I wanted to reference the feeling of that sealed, otherworldly environment and decided depicting it as a space scene would be a good way to go. Initially I started sketching out designs as if they were to be used as an actual table layout but they seemed too flat to me, like they weren’t adequately conveying the space that I wanted them to. So I came up with a more lively space battle scene in a style that might have been used as cabinet or scoreboard graphics, and the vibe seemed to click. As a designer I often have to be rather restrained with colour and composition, so it was actually a lot of fun to pile on all the elements to give it that really frenetic ‘multiball’ feel. I really enjoyed creating this piece of art and I hope it goes some way to capturing part of what makes pinball tables so enticing.”
This print is limited to a regular edition of 100, a foil variant edition of 20, and includes a signed Certificate of Authenticity.
18″ x 24″ 5-color print on archival, acid-free paper.
