A selection of posters screen printed at California Institute of the Arts with various collaborators.
Redcat Children’s Film Festival 2019
Collaboration with Jessica Peng
10 layer screen printed poster in an edition of 34. Printed for the presentation of the children’s festival at the Redcat theater in Downtown Los Angeles. Jessica and I set out to make the most complex poster printed at CalArts. Over the course of one week we designed and printed the 10 layers, consisting of 14 custom mixed ink colors of varying opacity and three split fountains.
Twisted Candyland - CalArts Halloween 2019 Collaboration with Jessica Peng.
4 color screen printed poster in an edition of 70. The BFA4 class at CalArts traditionally is commissioned to design and print a set of posters for the annual halloween party. We wanted to make something complex that didn’t look like the cliche calarts halloween poster but also didn’t want to match the intensity of our children’s fest poster due to budget and time constraints. We secretly printed a secret fourth layer that glows in the dark.
Redcat The Oyster Princess 100 Year Anniversary Collaboration with Gian Montes
3 color screen printed poster in an edition of 25. Printed for the presentation of the children’s festival at the Redcat theater in Downtown Los Angeles. Initially when choosing the event, Gian and I saw “Flat Earth” and thought it would be a great opportunity to make a funny poster. When we got the brief and realized “Flat Earth Society” was just the name of the performer we had to rethink our concept. However, we still had fun with the design and turned many heads in the halls. This poster is featured in Inside Out & Upside Down: Posters from CalArts 1970-2019, at the RedCat Theater in Downtown Los Angeles running from August 25th 2020 to November 29th 2020.
Sponge Hollow Event Poster Collaboration with Gian Montes
3 color screen printed poster in an edition of 30. Printed for the presentation of Zach Dorn’s multimedia show titled “Sponge Hollow”. We were contacted by Zach after he had seen the Oyster Princess poster around the halls of CalArts. We wanted to go outside of our comfort zone implementing an illustrative style neither of us was comfortable with, but played with the child like wonder and cardboard structures in the show.
