Europe

Posted in **News**, Posters, Prints with tags , , , , , , on April 17, 2015 by malleus

What a period!
We’ve worked so much in the last weeks that we’re pretty exhausted.
In a good way, of course.
We’ve printed a lot of posters, worked on plenty of illustrations, covers and t-shirt designs… a lot to do, really.
We’ve a lot of posters coming out in the next days, while we’ll be on the road for an european tour with Ufomammut, our band.
You can come and say hi, of course, during one of the next gigs (check them out here).
And if You’re not in Europe, You can come and say hi next month while we’ll be in the States and Canada.
C’mon, don’t be shy!
So, as I was saying, we’ve a lot of posters coming out in the next days and weeks.
You probably already saw some of them (like Desert fest in London and the Blues Explosion US tour).
Then we have Asymmetry Festival, the Black Cobra, ASG, Mudhoney and more.
Today we want to show You the tour poster for Ufomammut’s new album ECATE.
It’s a very very sparkling print, popping out of the paper, lots of glitters and metallic inks.
It’s a representation of the ancient goddess Hecate.
And it looks like this:

ecate

ecate01

ecate2

ecate03

 

It’s a very precious print, a sacred object, I must say.
We’re very happy with it, it came out exactly the way we had it in mind.
If You like it, You can grab Your copy from HERE.
Or You can come at one of our shows, of course.
Stay tuned and keep following us on things like Facebook and Instagram for more news about the new prints!

The new Prodigy is a great album!

Some news

Posted in **News**, Music, Posters, Prints with tags , , , on March 13, 2015 by malleus

Hope You won’t be angry with us if we didn’t write anymore on the blog.
It’s been a very hectic period and we worked very hard on a lot of project and really didn’t find the time to put our fingers on the keyboard to share what was happening with You.
Of course, there are a lot of other “social” way to reach You, but it’s fun to be on this blog.
So, little by little, we’re gonna show You what’s going on at malleusdelic headquarter.
And what has happened there in the last weeks, of course.
Before showing You the new poster coming out in the next days, we want to remind You that Ufomammut (the band featuring Poia and Urlo with Vita) has a new record coming out in a couple of weeks and You can preorder one of the limited edition vinyls going HERE.
Moreover, I’m happy to announce we’ll be in the States and Canada in May (again, with Ufomammut… but never knows… we could be there as Malleus as well… You know we’re magic people!).
And of course, we’ll be in Europe too!
Check the dates HERE.
Said that, let’s go with the new print coming next week.
It’s for a Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Manfield gig in Nashville.
They’re touring the States supporting the new album in which they cover 12 Elliott Smith songs.
So, we took inspiration from a picture we found on internet of Elliot playing a mask on his face with his hands.
So we decided to pay homage to him, in our way.
The poster is on a light cream thick paper, it’s a 6 colors handprinted silkscreen and it’s a limited edition of 130 pieces.
First color is a red ink.

Red

Then we worked on a shade from a metallic green to a gold.

The third screen has been for another shade, from a scarlet red to a blue.

And finally we used a dark brown to define the image.

Posted in **News**, Art Prints, Posters, Prints with tags , , , , , on January 29, 2015 by malleus

Today we’re talking about the third eye.
We showed You the brand new print we’ve realized for the show of Monster magnet in Germany next week.
And now we’re ready to go and present You AJNA, the art print we worked out on metallic paper, with fluo, metallic and iridescent inks, taken from the Monster Magnet design.
Are You ready?
It’s called Ajna, that is the name of the sixth chakra (the third eye).
It’s on silver metallic paper and it’s a very limited edition of 42 pieces.

We printed a gold ink, then a fluorescent red and finally an iridescent metallic gold ink.

Back

Hey all!
It’s been a loooooong time since the last post.
We’ve been closed in our studio forging new ideas, preparing screens, paper, inks, brainstorming and sketching new things on paper and so now we’ve starting the engine to run again, ready for printing a lot of stuff.
In these days we’ve put our hands on the first silkscreen of the year.
It’s for a gig of Monster Magnet in Germany, in Frankfurt, on the 3rd of February 2015.
It’s a 3 colors limited edition handprinted silkscreen on raw light brown heavy paper.
We’ve worked on a run of about 130 pieces (we’re numbering them tomorrow) and we’ve also realized an art print version with different colors and on different paper (and we’ll show You this tomorrow!)
100 pieces will fly to Germany for the show and the other ones will be on our webstore on the 4th of february.
The first color is a gold ink, as You can imagine watching the pic my cat took…

Then we worked out a blue ink.

Then we printed a transparent white layer with the name of the band on top of all.

2014

Posted in **News**, Events with tags , , on December 30, 2014 by malleus

We’re at the end of another year, another 365 days passed between a lot of projects, drawings, prints, videos, music, vibes, dreams and nightmares.
And it’s been a cool year, thinking back at it.
I can’t tell You why, but I feel like it’s been a cool one, if I think at it.
As always, we’ve done a lot of things we had in mind in the way we wanted, no rules, just the feeling we need to do something in that moment for some reason…
Hope You’ve enjoyed this year too and I’m pretty sure we’ll spent the next one together again.
Keep us following us!
Have a great great new year from Lu, Poia and Urlo aka Malleus.

Solstice

Posted in **News**, Art Prints, Events, Posters, Prints with tags , , on December 18, 2014 by malleus

It’s almost winter.
And the end of the year is getting closer.
All of a sudden will be 15 years ahead to 2k.
I remember when it was going to turn from 1999 to 2000… there was this fear of the millenium bug… all the computer had to shut down, we were supposed to enter a second middle age… well, not for the computers maybe, but it happened.
Anyway, sunday will be the first day of winter, we’ll move from the darkness to the light.
Days will start in getting longer and this is a good thing.
But, like every year, when we get close to the end of the year, I start in thinking about what we’ve done in these 12 months.
We did a lot in this 2014 and I’m happy about everything.
So, we want to celebrate with a last print.
It’s an art print and it’ll be released on sunday the 21st.
Obviously it’s called “Solstice”.
It’s a very limited edition of 77 copies and it’s a 9 colors plus glittered ink on very heavy black paper.
Let’s go and see it!

We started with 2 colours at a time, with a shade from a browny purple to a light violet, both metallic inks.

01

 

Then we moved on with a brown and then a gold ink.

03

 

As You can see there’s a door, a very heavy wooden one.
And the 5th ink has been a metallic one again, a light blue silver.
04

 

The sixth and seventh colors came into a shade again.
And now You can see there’s the shape of a woman outside the door.

05

Eight color is a black, to define the details of the wooden door.

06

 

And then the nineth color is a white ink.
Snow, a lot of snow, like there’s a storm, the wind opens the door and outside a woman is staring at us.07

08

09

Then we added more power to this iconic print with some incredible glittered ink.
It’s very difficult to make it appear in a photo, it’s a translucent ink, shading from white to silver to green and blu.

10

 

And this is SOLSTICE, the final print of this 2014.

solstice

Hope You’ll like it.
It’ll be on sale this sunday, on our westore.
Have a great Winter Solstice!
