Pick Me Up Fair 2013..Process

For this years Pick Me Up Fair I was asked by Nelly Duff to produce a print on the theme of Flowers. I thought this was quite fitting as their Gallery is housed on Colombia Road, which has the famous flower market on the Sunday. I had already been working on a pair of prints […]

Making of: Bruce French, Now or Never

“Now or Never” is the second Screen Print Edition I have printed for the talented Bruce French via the Scream Gallery. This print was to coincide with Bruce’s solo show at the gallery, which opened last November. As expected with Bruce’s last print I did, I knew that this was not going to an easy […]

Making of: Remi Rough Notorious

This print had been in the planning for a while and I knew I could’t promise to print it unless I had proofed it and was happy enough to pursue and finish it! You ask why, but all is not that appears to be with this design. Like most of Remi/Roughs art work, everything has […]

Mobstr- “This One” Screen Print

  As per usual, I swear to go into semi-retirement of producing commercial prints for artists but as per usual, something always entices me to get my special squeegees, and large pristine screens out and make an edition for someone. This is my first screen print for the artist, that I actually got one of […]

Making Of: Emperor Yes

Recently, I had the pleasure of printing for a very nice independent  East London based studio, ‘House of Strange’ for their new venture Emperor Yes headed by the lovely Ash Gardner. The print was to coincide with the  release of their first single on Tape Club Records and to celebrate have put on an art/music inspired special type […]

Making Of: Lennie Lee, Dark Angel & Specsaviours

I had been on a well deserved break from screen printing when I received a surprise call from what I call the original “wild child”of found/trash/sculpture/performance/instillation…..the list goes on for the artwork of Lennie Lee. You would think with so much experience and knowledge Lee would have had a Screen Print out by now! But I […]

Making Of: Bruce French (Monument)

I recently had the pleasure of meeting and printing for the lovely artist Bruce French, who is with Scream and Whisper Gallery in London. The print is titled “Monument” and is a 4 colour screen print on to Somerset Tub Sized paper. I really love this screen print for it’s simplicity and honesty, which made it […]

The “Sweet Heart” is especially appropriate for you lovers out there with Valentines fast approaching…. “Sweet Heart” and “You Got the Power” are now available from The Ben Oakley Gallery (London), both are […]

Making Of: Remi/Rough Known

It was about a year ago when Remi/Rough released his first ever screen print Edition “Phenomenon” which was printed right here in The Glorious House of Brag by the infamous, talented screen printer Sam from Mula Printing. After the success of the last print, Remi was ready to release his second print edition called “Known”. […]

Making Of: Credit Crunch Wallpaper

I can see why making money can be so addictive as I think I have definitely developed an addiction to “Printing Money”. As I lay there fantasising how great it would be to be surrounded by money I had a epiphany! Make some wallpaper, this was the solution. As it shows in the photographs, it […]

Making Of: Otto Schade Amy Winehouse Print

There were spooky going on’s in the studio when these Amy Winehouse art works were being printed . As the layers of the art work were broken down, with each layer I printed, I could almost see in to the soul of the subject….never mind all the things going missing and being moved around in […]

Print Yourself Out of Debt

It’s any printers long term dream…how to print money! So here at Brag Towers we thought we have a go and try to beat that nasty old Credit Crunch with the revival of our “Credit Crunch Note” Each $100 note is worth $50, with the exchange rate of:  50 USD = 32 GBP. It’s not guaranteed to […]

Making Of: Hood Thingamajigs

Million hours in making but they are back. The famous Bragacalavas from the good old “Brag Boutique” winter staples. I had actually forgotten how long they take to make, start to finish. Luckily, I had found a batch of the fabric already cut out in one of the storage bags, so I only had to […]

Making Of: Limited Edition Black ZeVra

So, I had a happy accident one day whilst cutting out my Pink ZeVra’s, one fell onto some Black paper which was lying on the studio floor. This was the start of my mission to try and pull off a print on Black paper. I knew it wouldn’t be easy as this colour can soak […]

Making Of: Otto Schade: Message to Environmentally Unfriendly People

I had never met Otto Schade but had seen his work around the Truman Brewery  and around East London. So, I was intrigued and a little nervous to be making some prints for him at the beginning. It’s always a bit weird to meet someone for the first time who’s work you have seen and […]

Making of: Ludo’s e-Lepidoptera Print

I was so excited to be asked to print for Ludo for his first solo show in the UK at the High Roller Society which opened last Friday. I really enjoyed printing this image, it was such a precise image with lots of delicate half tone dots so I had to make sure that the […]

Making of: New Scarves

Well done to those of you who managed to buy a preview of the scarves at White Cross Street party, I think it was the classic case of ‘the early bird catches the worm’. So, as of last week, the scarves have gone up on the Brag shop. There are lots more different designs and […]
