New Screen Print! Stacey’s Dragon

Our friend, Stacey, has a birthday coming up and I made her a print! It’s a 19×25″ 2-color screen print on 100lb stock—you know it’s French Paper!

‘S’ for ‘Stacey’ seemed simple enough. The dragon’s an Illustration I did with micron, blown up to fit on the poster and I made the type by using a micron to write as tiny as i could, then blowing it up real big like.

I printed a few of just the dragon and a few with the “This city is just too small for you” type (a quote from the book, Mad Science Institute). And now they’re added to our wall of prints making our studio space look awesome!

This was tons of fun to print. We had a few of our friends chill at the studio and we had a healthy amount of vodka flowing around. Once they saw how dope screen printing is, I let them all do a few pulls—everybody remembers their first pull. Next time you’re in Seattle, come print with us. Just be sure to bring lots of sweet sweet hard liquor :)

Screen Print: Sorry For Your Moss

As mentioned in this post, our boy, Bloomstar, had the genious idea to just print whatever we wanted to get our print process down. So I did a drawing based off of this Kate Moss pic.

She’s a four color, ~9x~10 print on French Paper, 100lb stock, in a run of 19. I did the separations with pencil and once I had the transparencies printed, I locked up in the studio for 8hrs tearing down stock, burning the screen, mixing the ink, and printing. Selena and Bloomstar came around to help out (thank you), and Selena took most of these pics :)

Say you want one in the comments and we’ll get a hold of you.

Free BnB Screen Print!!

To get a limited edition print: be among the first to tell us what we’re gonna be for halloween in the comments, like sunshine, a unicorn, or a heavy/medic pair—first come, first serve until these prints are gone.

A while ago, we kicked off this giveaway on our instagram (@bossnotboss) but we still got some prints left over and want to give one to you since you’re awesome :)

It’s a one color screen print on 100lb French Paper, roughly 6″x8″. It’s an amazing deep grey on slight-cream stock—there’s also an alt print which is black ink on black stock. You know it was hand printed and hand cut with the love of a thousand mother bears.
