Old school classic video game characters done with screenprint. Enough said!
From her site:
3 colour risograph prints for the Turn Up The Colour exhibition at Analogue Books in Edinburgh, produced after a trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles in June 2010.
So quirky and nostalgic… somehow she manages to make it look “sketchy” and less precise, yet it has the nice bold colours of a silkscreen print. Inspiring to me because it confirms that doing things by hand (and not computer) is sometimes still the way to go!
“Like a souvenir from a roadtrip, Youngna and Jacob wanted me to create an object that would serve as a lasting momento of adventure for their guests. Because their venue is a remote mountain-top home, the handkerchief had to function as accurate way-finding tool—while simultaneously preserving the journey’s idiosyncratic visual landmarks for future memories.”
Amazing wedding invitation! Also a really nice “making of” on her blog.
I bought my first print! Which is the amazing “Fox Print”. I first saw the illustration in Nobrow magazine, which included many amazing screenprinted images using only 3 colours… and it happened to be mostly blue, which is my favourite colour. Anyway, I love his illustrations, they have a fairy-tale like feeling to them, but are still modern. I like the restrained use of colour.
