Summers a Dancing
Johnny Dimas has produced another sweet poster for Lotus. Lotus is having a Summer Dance this August. This should be a great jam fest with headliners Eoto, which is a project from members of the String Cheese Incident. This is sure to be a hot festival for those in Ohio. This Screen Print is a 3 color print which was inspired by the rock quarry where the fest is to take place. Johnny hand inked the whole poster. That is right he took his time to draw out each individual rock that forms the summer dance text. It is practices like this that show how even with today's technology the best program to design in may be a pen and paper. Each layer was hand printed in Austin, Texas at Under Pressure Screen Printing. This poster is another limited edition print with only 60 pressed. The last layer was printed with the help of pills. We have found that in order to achieve very fine line detail it is best to print with a pill gap between the screen and print table. This gap spacing helps separate the screen from sticking to the paper when we have a large cover area. Also you avoid double stamping the paper.
