A few weeks back I sent the third edition of my Quarterly mailing, #003, a poster collaboration with my friend in type, Erik Marinovich. Well, to be fair he did most of the work. I while back I tweeted a little something that was stuck in my head, the phrase, “Life is fluid, make waves.” I’ve spoken about my fascination with water before, and I thought this line had a poetic beauty to it. So I asked Erik to illustrate this phrase in a fluid way, bringing it to life. As always he did an amazing job, making the phrase flow and move; I couldn’t have been happier.
With the artwork done, I hit up Erik Hamline of Steady Print Co. to get it printed. Based out of Minneapolis other, Erik is a screen printing maestro who I knew would do an amazing job. We ended up running a split fountain of blue and turquoise color, giving the print a subtle gradation on a creme colored paper, which in Erik’s own words “gives it a Beach Boys sort of vibe.”
Currently my Quarterly subscription is sold out, but I’m hoping to get it open again so that more of you could subscribe to what will be my final maling. It will be another great poster collaboration, though I’m keeping the details mum for now. That said, there will be many more collaborations coming in the near future.
