Love cleaning up my work area after a print. Never know what kind of test print goodness I’m gonna find. Like this here Bert Grimm hula girl. She’s about 3 1/2 inches long. Done in spot varnish, and part of a job I did for @kingpintattoosupply test printed over a @jeffhotrod piece. Had to tilt the paper just right to capture her in the light. #testprint #itsthelittlethingsthatmatter #handprinted #printmaking #screenprinting

tinybirdpress:

"Moonshot"

July 20th, 2014 marks the 45th anniversary that man first set foot upon the moon.

Almost everyone recognizes the names Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. Not many people know the name of the third astronaut who was also along on that historic flight. His name was Michael Collins. He travelled all the way to the moon, but never set foot on lunar soil. He stayed behind in the command module, pictured in this print.

This is my tribute to those 3 brave men, that trip and everyone who helped to get them to the moon and back safely.

Notes:
- hand screen printed
- 18″ x 24″ on 100lb American made Cougar white cover weight paper 

- Printed with water-based inks, including silver metallic ink.

- Forty-fifth anniversary edition of 45 pcs.  Signed and numbered. $25.00 each + shipping. 

- “No text” edition of 5 pcs.  Signed and numbered $45.00 each + shipping.

These (and a few Artist Proofs of my SOLD OUT “One Small Step” 2nd edition print) will go online tomorrow (July 16th) at 6PM EST in the Tiny Bird Press webstore.

A section of a test print which I’ve been adding to since I printed my Rosie the Riveter piece. Crazy amount of layering going on here. Oh yeah, it also happens to be printed on metal. #testprint #rosietheriveter #pfflyers #stingray #screenprint #handprinted #garageprinter #oneofakind #artifact
