Here is another print that will be on sale at Pick Me Up - a very limited edition.
The dark HOPELESS EMPTINESS sentiment is balanced by the simple beauty of Gill Cameo Line.

The Problem with... blind bedossing.

I designed these cards for Pick Me Up - they'll be available during the show and were inspired by Catpowers exquisite version of Wild is The wind. Currently there are 2 versions - one printed black the other is a blind deboss - just like a whisper.

The Problem with my 8x5...

While I was printing some business cards today, the press broke.. I had no idea what was going on till I gave up and cleaned the press..

Fear not though, I have already ordered a replacement from Jeremy Winkworth which is due here on Sunday.
