gav beattie screenprinted poster planet x liverpool

Another event organised by Marc Jones was the Planet X Anti Jubilee Punk Special celebrating 25 years of Planet X. I think this is a good look for HRH, Charlie Manson eyes, a bit of crypt paint… A2 print again, silver and gold ink on black card. Hand numbered and signed edition of 60 posters. Really enjoyed making this poster too, made me revert to good old cut and paste for a change.

Marc Jones from Liverpool’s Medication got in touch last month about designing and printing a run of posters celebrating their winning of the national Smirnoff Battle of the Clubs contest which culminated in a big end of term finale on Friday 1st of June. Marc wanted a vintage 50′s sci-fi feel to the poster but with the City of Liverpool featuring prominently. Here’s the result, A2 print, silver and black ink on cherry red card, hand numbered and signed edition of 60 copies.

Melodica Deathship launch EP the sunken path gav beattie

April was a busy week for Melodica Deathship what with gigging & promoting the new EP “The Sunken Path”. Friday the 13th of April saw the formal launch of the EP with a gig upstairs in Whelan’s, Dublin with support from Estel, Magic Pockets and Pulled Apart.

I printed 200 brown card digipacks, one side only, more on those soon. Here’s how the poster turned out – it’s a slightly tweaked version of The Island starring Michael Caine (1980)
