Live screen printing at Millers Junction

I was recently invited to the opening of the new design studio “Millers Junction” in Dalston (associated with Print Club London). I worked producing simple 1 colour screen prints live for the audience, both showing off my own work and promoting the art of screen printing.

Back to drawing…

Just got back from traveling around South America (photos to come soon) and noticed that the blog is looking horribly neglected! Currently in the process of clearing and organizing the studio and stumbled across these drawings I did before I left for SA…

This last image is a oil stick drawing produced for a lithography print.

I always forget how much fun drawing is!

DJ Shadow Vinyl Cover

DJ Shadow come on riding

Designed as part of the Talenthouse Secret 7 competition taking a song and producing an album cover for it without depicting the artist or have any reference to the name.

This work is designed to capture the obscure feel of the song. The strong rolling movement of the bass and the drums creates a motion which is cut through by the vocals. I Imagined a herd of horses running under the stars… but in some sort of Hollywood slow motion like something important is happening.

When I grow up I want to be…

Finn O'Brien when I grow up... pilot

This is the first print from a series of work I am doing based on childhood notions of jobs, what is seen as a good job? Tongue in cheek look at the aspirations of the young and the crushing realization of the old that they never achieved their childhood fantasy!

More to follow in the new year!

Screen Printed Wrapping Paper

Finn O'Brien Christmas Paper

Hand printed festive wrapping paper. Gold on cream paper complete with red tags. I printed over 40meters this year to be sent out to friends family and other people of interest. Queuing up in the post office clutching all 40m divided into individually wrapped 2m sections, it was a long process!
