Toolchest prints

I've been learning to screen print and have done a (very) short run of prints of my Toolchest illustration, which I'm offering up for sale because a few people asked me about it at about the time I was doing the T-shirts (http://www.lfgss.com/thread73849.html). I'm really pleased with how they came out.



Whereas the T-shirts were outsourced, I printed these myself with my own bare hands, at The Print Club in Dalston (http://www.printclublondon.com/). The ink is ultra-high quality metallic silver and the design is printed on two different heavyweight paper/card stocks: brown (270gsm GF Smith 'harvest'... think Muji) and white (270gsm GF Smith coated off-white). The print itself is the same size on both stocks, though the brown card is A4 (210x297mm) and the white a bit bigger (251x356mm). I was going to trim them up but thought better of it as I dunno what people would want to do with them. They're unframed, obviously. There are 17 of them and they're numbered accordingly.















I'm not looking to profit from this particularly, but at the same time I'm aware that 'art prints' usually sell for good money (often inexplicably IMO). I'm just looking to make enough to join the club permanently and buy the bits I need to start making some more bits and pieces...

So, they're 20 each if anyone's interested. I really want to avoid posting them for obvious reasons, but they can be picked up from me somewhere around Old Street. Please add your name to the list and drop me a PM to confirm pick-up etc. Cash would be best I suppose.

Thanks once again for your support, it means a lot.

Josh

I'm asking, because there's a chance I'll venture west to see B&D on Thursday , so not too early.
Also I might go to see Nhatt's vernissage on Friday which starts at 6PM in Finsbury.
