Our latest commission, delivered today, was for Indica, a beautiful shop in St Peter Port, Guernsey. It is packed with homewares, art and gifts, which are handpicked by Amie, who asked us for the papercut.
We were pleased with it, but the main reason for sharing it with you is to give you some idea of how to go about a paper cut. We’ve been a bit screen-print crazy recently, what with the Arts Sunday workshop and all, but papercuts are the starting point for all of our screen prints.
They start off as sketches, drawn in reverse, which we then cut, using a scalpel.
Research for this latest project was easy — it involved listening to Jack McGahy’s songs over and over again. And he’s good!! (Though he is family, so we’re bound to like him.) He describes his music as folk pop and his tunes are extremely catchy.
So the album is called “Scary Love” and the design is Hammer-Horror style. Have a listen: http://jack-mcgahy.bandcamp.com/track/scary-love
And if you want to hear him live he is playing at our studio launch, 7th September, 2:30-6:30 at the Studio, Rex Stationers building, Ruette Bray, St Peter Port, Guernsey. Everyone welcome.
