Country Living magazine

Merry Christmas to us! Our City Skates card was recently chosen as an editor’s pick in the December issue of Country Living magazine.

The editor chose it because “the urban landscape reminds (her) of her neighborhood in Brooklyn“. She’s right! The illustration was done by Joel using reference from our old ‘hood in Williamsburg.

Sudbury Star article

Yes, we were finally discovered in our hometown! The National Post discovered us first but hey, who’s keeping track 😉 This article appeared in the Sudbury Star and, although a fine article,  features one of the most unflattering photos of Chantal ever taken (she’s writing this wondering where her chin went).

Could this mean we finally get a Sudbury client? Not yet, but you never know!

Troublemakers Illustrated Letterpress Cards

Troublemakers Illustrated Letterpress Cards

These four Troublemakers were illustrated by Joel to accompany some of his favorite words. Printed in black and a cool cerulean blue, the Troublemakers illustrations also include a description of each of the words. The figures themselves were inspired by Depression era characters.

Joel initially printed the cards to use as a limited edition of promotional cards for his illustration work. Thankfully for everyone else, the cards are also available in our shop as one of our illustrated letterpress packs (other sets include Tea Time and Seasons – more to come!).

Skullduggery : Crafty deception or trickery or an instance of it
Whippersnapper : An insignificant but pretentious or cheeky person

The cards were recently featured on Under Consideration’s great blog about print design, For Print Only.

You can also watch a video to see how Joel’s original Troublemakers promotional cards were printed. From the ink mixing to trimming and assembly, watch our press in action!
