    **FREE PRINT** Hayden Print Release

    420mm x 297mm £.01 Each **FREE HAYDEN PRINT** Size: 420mm x 297mm £.01 Each

    Check out these cats at artichokeltd, they believe in sharing the love of art and not just capitalizing of the soaring value in art.(thanksy) They represent some bangers too, most notably Hush and Jeff Aerosol (love his tunnel work) Here is some of the fun stuff they are offering to all of us art lovers.





    "We will be doing the £1 print again shortly….but a pound is a bit steep in the current economic climate I reckon. Read on. I started this company through a genuine love of art and so have decided to add a couple of features for the New Year to keep things fun. The £1 print will ‘pop up’ on a monthly/bi-monthly basis and so will ‘I wanna trade’; If you like a print we have but don't have the funds to buy it you can trade me for it. This can be either a piece that you have done yourself or a piece in your collection you no longer want. I’ll add your piece to my private collection (if I like it). Just email me through the ‘contact’ button on the homepage with your suggested trade. Look out for the £1 print going live in April. The background on the website will go ‘red’ to indicate it’s live and ready to purchase. Some of you on the forums have also discussed the £50 print and what you can get so at the same time the £1 print goes live we will also have a selection of £34 prints (my age)and under….................... but only for an hour." Pete

    "Oh, I meant to mention….look out for the ‘1 pence print set’ coming soon. The new variation on the £1 print."

    Devo Mark Mothersbaugh Postcard Art



    16.25 x 14.75 Inches 'Jocko Robot' Edition of 12 Size: 16.25 x 14.75 Inches

    I love this print, it is very amusing to me!!

    During his downtime on early worldwide tours with DEVO, Mark Mothersbaugh began illustrating on postcards to send to his friends and family, which he still creates, and has been creating every day for over 30 years. It's an obsessive habit/hobby which still yields anywhere from one to a couple dozen new postcard-sized images per day.

    The cards were originally created as his personal diaries, and were never intended for public viewing. That all changed when Mark decided to share his postcard works in his critically acclaimed solo shows during the 1980's & 1990's. Since then, he launched his worldwide Homefront Invasion! tour in '03, and the Visual Art of Mark Mothersbaugh tour starting in '05.

    Mark has archived nearly all the original postcard-sized works, filed neatly in spiral-bound folders at his home in Hollywood, CA. It is an astonishingly obsessive collection of private thoughts featuring Mark’s plethora of provoking & unusual imagery.

    The 2009 Gallery Tour features high-resolution, limited edition digital prints of Mark's works. Each original postcard diary sketch is scanned and altered especially for the tour, often with the addition of text, digital effects, photos, etc. Each customized image is printed on quality archival Lysonic paper in a very limited edition (usually editions of 3-20, each embossed and signed by the artist). Mark archives one of each print edition for his own archives, which further limits distribution of each postcard diary print.

    -Mark explains, ”Usually, the only way someone can get an original sketch is if I give it to them myself. I’ve sent a few in the mail, and handed others out to friends and family. I’ve probably got around 30,000 of them filed away now….and I keep making more every day. The limited edition prints are my way of sharing these personal images with other people around the world.”

    Alex Pardee Awful Homesick Book




    Awful Homesick Awful Homesick

    From the twisted artwork of Alex Pardee comes “Awful Homesick,” a collection featuring the fine artist's favorite works from 2005 to the present. Mixed with the dark, bizarre, and horror-inspired characters, “Awful Homesick” also shows Pardee's influences from a comic book and graffiti-inspired childhood, with an exploration into the different styles of line work that he has worked on over the past few years. “Awful Homesick” features a foreword from Jeben Berg. Now that you know the basics, just remember that the next time you are dreaming of waking up in a pool of your own blood. Remember the man Alex Pardee, because he probably has drawn the scenario better than you can think it. The book has 96 pages and comes with a hardcover.
