Yesterday we said there’s a project we were going to unveil next week.
But thinking that there’s “Black Friday” coming, knowing that Xmas is coming and that we love You a lot for following us so much… we decided to show You what we’ve done in the last weeks here in “Big Cake”, our small town in the north of Italy (apparently free from a 20 years nightmare since today…).
As You can surely imagine, working on illustrations since about a life (well, the first silkscreen came more then 10 years ago), we’ve collected so many drawings You cannot even figure out.
We’ve pencils everywhere and, looking at them, we notice how different they’re from the final prints we’ve realized at the end of the process.
It’s a pity cause, during the first years, we were used to ink on the pencils, so a lot of them are missing, but there’re quite a lot of “variations on a theme”.
We decided it was time to give birth to a project that, hopefully, will last for a lot of time, a serie of line art little prints, very simple ones, taken from the pencils designs of our posters (and more).
We’ve worked on the first four pieces for now and they’ll be available from friday on our webstore (so, take advantage of the 20% discount!)
All the prints are, of course…, handprinted on white raw paper, numbered and signed.
Stamped on the back and titled too.
And they are all 34 x 49 cms (we liked the idea of respecting the size of most of our original drawings)
First one is called “Tentacola” and it’s a limited edition of 105 pieces.
It’s the ink of the “Independent festival” poster we realized in 2007.
Gold to red shade and black inks.
Above the final shape and below the line art compared with the original print.
Second one is called “scintilla” and it’s limited to 71 pieces.
It’s iridescent gold (difficult to see it on these pics) and black ink.
It’s the pencils of the OM print we realized for OM at Roadburn festival in 2009.
Here below You can see the iridescent gold layer

Third print is called “Preghiera” and it’s limited to 79 pieces.
It’s the pencils design of the Black Keys poster we realized in 2012 for their show in Milano.
It’s a silver ink layer and a shade from black to red.
Above the final design and below the comparison with the original poster.
Last line art print is called Demonia and it’s limited to 83 pieces.
It’s a silver and black inks print and it’s the pencils design of the Goblin poster of 2011.
Above the final print and below a crappy pic (sorry) of the original poster and the line art.
And here are the 4 line arts together.
Hope You’ll like the idea.
So, don’t forget these prints will go on sale starting this friday on our webstore.
And our “black friday sale” will last till sunday (so all the weekend) with a 20% discount on all our prints.
