RETURN OF THE HAIR!!!

Hey, I'm back!
Lately, I've been learning the tricks and trade of screen printing! This is a pastime enjoyed by artsters and DIYers alike, but for one lazy reason or another, I never had a chance to be properly introduced to it until now! Yes, lots of exclamations, folks!

Next weekend, AUGUST 1st, I will be premiering limited edition organic cotton/ fair trade tees and totes featuring my Hairy series. I've got a partner helping me with the production of these items and we have yet to come up with a name for our tee and tote biz, but I will notify everyone when the right name does arise.




Here I am modeling my first printed shirt! Olfactory Hair Factory is printed with a water based black ink on a men's small, ecru coloured tee. There will be two images available on tees and totes, Olfactory Hair Factory and Hair Bawl. A small quantity of two colour runs will also be made.







The Homerton Artist Group will have a booth at the Hackney Wicked Festival in East London, where we will be selling our wares. The festival will feature lots of contemporary art and live music from July 31st to August 2nd. There will be numerous exhibition spaces around Hackney Wick and some big names taking part (word on the street is Tracy Emin is involved). The Homerton Artist Group will only be there Saturday, August 1st, so please come visit us at our tent. There will be everything offered from cupcakes and fortune-telling to tattoos!

This tee and tote business is dependent on reception and demand. If I get positive feedback I might consider setting up an online shop. If you are interested in ordering a shirt, please feel free to contact me and I will get back to you with further details.

  2. Thanks Richard! I will be printing totes next week. But it's a pretty standard, long handled organic/ fair trade cotton tote. Dimesions are 32 x 35 x 12 cm and it can carry 16 Litres worth of stuff!
