We are looking for a few more artists to take part in the Demo Prints at this year's Bumbeshoot Flatstock. Presented by the API, Squeegeeville, the Vera Project, and the participating artists, the demos allow the poster fans to watch live screenprinting and see how we produce a print, ask questions, and get a better understanding of the process, and how everyone (kind of) makes their posters. We will produce around 8 editions over the weekend, with more or less continuous printing.
With the participation this year of the Vera Project, we are hoping to do some onsite drawing and printing collabs, as they have a complete studio on the Seattle Centre grounds so we can make screens.
Some of our past artists include:
Uncle Charlie Hardwick
Sei Rey Ho
Kunny Van der Ploeg
and a few more!
If you are interested, contact me andy AT squeegeeville DOT com and I'll 'splain the deal.
Hope to see everyone at Flatstock in Seattle. Want to thank Vera Project (esp Eric Carnell) for stepping up and getting involved in presenting the demos this year, it will make it easy on Laura and Rick who have helped with equipment the last few years.
We also want to thank the groups and companies who are helping us put the demos together: A.P.I. without whom it would never happen, Kelly Paper for paper, Kiwo for emulsions and cleaners, Speedball for inks, Sefar for screens and a coater - (Sefar are also donating 2 Greenscreen starter kits for a giveaway, drop by the booth to enter) and Ryonet for inkjet film, squeegees, and some screenframes.
Finally, a shout out to the artists who create a little something special to help us demonstrate the art of screenprinting:
Continuous demos over the 3 days. Schedule? We don't need no stinkin' schedule.
