Whoops!

We forget to tell You that we are back!
Aren’t You happy?
What?
No, no,no… we didn’t go on holiday on a secret Island in the middle of nowhere…
Well, we did, but just for a few days…
01

We’ve been on a lot of ferries, it’s true… But we’re back.
And even if it seems like that, we didn’t drive it.

03

We didn’t spend our time drinking beer.
Well, at least not so much.

02

Neither we took good care of ourselves…

04

And we didn’t  go out to try to figure out what happened to some super heroes now they’re too old to continue in fighting evil…

05

We tried to eat some brain (yes, this is a cake!!!) to see if it could improve our memory…

07

Or we had some powerful drinking…
But the result was not so good…

8

Surely we met good friends.
And we had a very good time on the road.

06

We basically spent the entire month of october with our band Ufomammut, playing all over Europe.
That’s what we did.

09

But we’re back!
And even if it took about 10 days to write some posts here, we’re ready to show You some great works we’re realizing right now.
There’ll be posters, illustrations and posters again.
We’re already printing 2 of them in these hours, for 2 gigs that will happen here in Italy during this weekend.
Name of the band?
We’ll tell You more in the next days, once the posters will be finished.
For now, just a sneak peak of them.

Curious to see more?
Don’t worry, we’ll be back very soon!

MONO

Posted in **News**, Art Prints, Music, Posters, Prints with tags , , , on November 19, 2014 by malleus

Mono are a very cool japanese band.
They are touring Europe and they asked us to realize their official tour poster.
And it’s been a pleasure, our collaboration lasts since a few years.
Their last album is called “Rays of Darkness” and “The Last Dawn” (it’s an album in 2 parts)
We started from there and our imagination lead us to the vision of a woman cut through by sun rays.
We wanted something very iconic, simple but at the same time very detailed.
We used a green raw paper and we printed a double shade of colors.
The screens used are three but the colors are actually 5.

01

 

First we worked on 2 yellow inks, a lighter one fading into a darker one.

02

Then we printed and orange going to red.
We wanted to give the idea of the light as much as possible.

03

04

Third color, for details and inscriptions, has been a black ink.

And here below You can see the result.

We realized 333 copies of this print.
300 are on tour with Mono and You can grab them during one of their shows in Europe.
Check here for the tour dates.

Then we realized a very limited art print called “Shine”.
It’s on a gold metallic paper and it’s 45 copies only.

No inscriptions on this one and a few differences from the regular edition.
Posters will be on sale on our webstore this friday.
So… stay tuned!

Europe

Posted in **News**, Events with tags , , on July 9, 2012 by malleus

It’s a very very busy moment here at Malleus headquarter.
It’s summer, so it’s warm like hell and our brains melt.
Then we’re keeping on with so many stuff we don’t have enough time to put our little fingers on the keyboard to write we’re ok.
Moreover we’re leaving town in a  couple of days with our band Ufomammut.
We’ll be in Holland, Belgium, Germany, Austria and Poland, check the gigs and come to say hi.
Check the gigs HERE.
In most of the days we’ll be there with our posters too.
Then, once back we’ll do our best to come back to You and write nice posts about what’s going on.
For now, just consider we’re designing the new Ufomammut, a new Argento print, a new Black keys poster, then Swans, Melvins and many many more things…

And today, we’re happy to announce that the second part of Ufomammut’s ORO wil be out on the 14th of september via Neurot Recordings.
Check this:

So, be patient and we’ll be back soon!

In the meantime… BAD ASS!

Touring

Posted in **News**, Events, Music with tags , on September 6, 2010 by malleus

We’re on the road since only 5 days and it’s like we’ve been out of Town for months. We’ve done a lot of kms and we’re leaving Denmark right now.
We’ll be’ in Stockolm this night, then tomorrow Finland.
It’s been rad till now, lots of people, great shows, poster lovers and an incredible amount of crazy things…
Like for example the ones below…
Different names for the same thing, a strange name for Vodka, an evil Messner, a present from our friend Martin (Naming himself Don Cazzo…) and the saddest pet ever…
Ok.
We’re on the road again.

Listening to the Beatles right now

HOME

Posted in **News** with tags , on May 24, 2010 by malleus

We’re back in Town, even if next weekend we’ll be in Poitiers, at le Confort Moderne in France.
On the 29th of May we’ll have a gig with Ufomammut and an exposition at La Fanzinothèque .
Very nice place, so we’re looking forward to be there.
Moreover, it’s been a real blast touring in the last days, we’ve met  a lot of fantastic people and we’ve really enjoyed  everything.
Now we’re planning some new works and the final works in the new studio, before entering it in July.
More coming soon.

And remember:
There’s always someone which will help You

And someone else that will try to poison You with strange food

But at the end, after You’ll meet the French police, the light will show You the road to follow

And when You’ll think to know a lot of things, You’ll discover, hidden behind Your friends, that Jimi Hendrix was a bass player…

… that dogs smoke really a lot while waiting for their owner…

… that Karl Marx is not dead and he’s a small shop in Berlin…

…where dangerous people live.

So, when You’ll see the Alps on the horizon, even if it’ll be sad, You’ll be happy to be home again

Listening to AssJack, cool as hell!

Posted in **News** with tags , , , on September 12, 2009 by malleus

While packing all for Europe, we’re preparing stuff for the USA and printing the last things.
If there’s something You’d like to see in the USA, please tell us.
I mean, some particular poster or such.
We’ve to number the artprints we’ve done for TRPS before unveiling them.
I hope a lot of You will be happy. They’re really nice and one of the 2 is glittered like hell.
Today we’ve started to print another print for a show we’re plenning is San Francisco.
I hope to be able to tell You more soon.
In the meantime check these pics of the first 3 colours.
It’ll be a 6 colours, so only 3 pics to see the complete design:-)
Colour 1This is the dark red colour.
colour 2This is the metallic green, look carefully and You’ll notice. Mmmhh… guess what these 2 spots could be…
colour 3And this is the third colour, a dark blue.
Well, with a little imagination it’s possible to understand.
I think that with the 4th colour it’ll be a little more clear.
So, we’ll be back with the confirmed dates for San francisco and all.
It’s all for today, our Premier is still alive, so there’s nothing to be happy for.
