  • You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd—their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their work is just as distinctive. JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves through their silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whoever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they've continued their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen.

  • "In publishers’ terms, Shock and Awe – a hefty, intellectual book about glam rock – is timely." - Jude Rogers, The Guardian

Lorenzo Hurtado Segovia: 2011-12 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

The Faculty Development Grant award contributed toward the publication of an artist book entitled “by Deborah Calderwood” in May 2012. This book completes a conceptual and critical component to my first major body of work exhibited professionally. It serves as an analytical document of the work which makes up the eponymous body of work.

The exhibition ran for a month at CB1 Gallery in April 2010 and was well reviewed by Art Ltd. magazine and flavorpill.com. While these publications make insightful commentary, one missing aspect of the exhibition is brought forth: What is the relation to the original drawings? Where can they be seen to asses such appropriationist endeavor?
