Print Cabal

Tomorrow night is the launch of the prints I have making during my resident week with Print Cabal down in Cork. From about 6 - 8.30pm in Camden Palace there will be a cafe event with tunes, hot drinks, and a screen printing demo at 6.30.

Here's some info on Print Cabal's monthly Cabalista project:
"November 2012 saw the launch of the Cabalista project from Print Cabal.
Every month, Print Cabal features one emerging artist. We work with that artist to select one of their pieces, and produce a limited edition run of screen prints. Some artists work will be on t-shirts or other wearable items, some will be high quality art prints. It will vary month-to-month.
The limited edition prints will be sold through the Print Cabal online store.
In addition to the limited edition prints, each month an additional 50 screen prints will be produced. These will be a basic one-colour version of the artwork, printed on newsprint. They will be given away for free as an 'Art Drop' in a different Cork city location each month.
Our first Cabalista of 2013 is Dublin artist, illustrator, and cartoonist, Karen Browett. Karen is also our first visiting artist - she will be working at the Print Cabal studio for the whole week, and will produce her Cabalista print along with PC. We'll printing as much other stuff as we can too! "

Time has been tight for full updates, so here's some pics for now!

The plan is a postcard set of black line drawings. On the reverse will be parts of a 4 colour image that you can choose to line up as a long poster.  Here are previews of parts of the images and some of the process so far. If you are around Cork please do pop in on Saturday. After the launch night the prints will go on sale on the Print Cabal big cartel page, for which I shall add a link when it goes online.
