Condition: Very Good, some creasing...

A different sort of travel poster. In this latest Bad vamp illustration, 'Los Angeles', I played around with using some of the defects that you sometimes find in mass produced printing, including: off registration, dot patterns, bad cropping, color overlap etc. I also incorporated more of those great worn effects (creases, folds, chips, sun fading etc) that often add character to the vintage paperbacks and posters that the Bad Vamp series is partially inspired by.

An Infographic Tale...

I found this great vid posted on a friend's Facebook page. It's an updated version of Little Red Riding Hood using infographics,with added details like the nutritional value of Granny etc. The concept comes from a Royksopp music video that also uses information graphics.

Deconstructing Lucha...

Planning on finishing the color separation of my poster Lucha de Gato( detail above) this week with Spencer at Loose Limbs Press. This involves building a new Photoshop document with the elements arranged according to the 4 colors that will be used. The tricky part of the process will be re-creating the textures and smudges from the original file on the prints. Spencer's got some tricks up his sleeve for this. Once we screen print the 17x24" posters (sometime this Spring) they will be available on the Loose Limbs site, and here.

Also working on another Bad Vamp image with a Los Angeles theme which I'll post when it's done.
