Taxi Studio – B-sides

An invitation…

I was invited by Bristol’s Taxi Studio to create a ‘b-side’ for their event celebrating the Festival of Print. This came in the form of a poster invite (the ‘a-side’) with a blank ‘b-side’ to get creative and bring along to the show for display.

What followed was a good few evenings with my 7″ record collection, getting nostalgic and listening to a lot of tunes I hadn’t heard for a while…

Desert Island Disc

After digging through my records, it was actually listening to desert island discs on Radio 4 that made me think of an idea for a print. I decided to create a ‘mono-print’ using stencils and worked with the record shape to create a goldfish bowl with something nasty lurking under the water.
