Audiophile Series

Like everyone else on the planet I happen to love music. Finding a late 70’s RadioShack turntable a few years ago got me into collecting those vinyl discs to play on it. It’s such a thrill to have the 12″ album artwork and the music in a format i grew up with. While listening to records a few months ago I decided the turntable itself would make a great print, and set out to create a series of audio hardware inspired monoscreen prints.

Analog

Vintage Turntable design over reclaimed double Cadillac poster. 5-Pull

Royal blue streaks break up the black nicely and give a sense of reflective highlights.

All those little dots were holes punched by hand with 2 sizes of handheld hole puncher. Keeping everything evenly spaced, and rolling up the stencil to get the small punchers access to the entire circumference was the tough part.

From different angles, the Cadillac artwork comes forward or recedes into the background.

Here you can see it pop!
