"For British illustrator and print designer Abbey Watkins, drawing has always been the primary form of expression. Her work is grounded in realism created in graphite, but pulls on the strings of surrealism with it’s mix of human, animal and spiritual worlds. From her studies in Textile Design for Fashion, where she achieved first class honours in 2011, Abbey developed her work from functional illustrations to a more uncertain and personal place, often drawing on mythology and archetypal themes. The fight between the conscious and the subconscious is boiling beneath the surface of her most recent work. Where her print designs are concerned, a language between the pencil and the digital world has been developed to create both simple and elaborate pieces.”

Confuse the Spirit

image

"The illustrations were inspired by the myths and legends of  Native American culture; confusing the bad spirits by not being able to pin point the body to infiltrate the mind. I was also inspired by their use of peyote and transcendent spiritual visions. "

Insta Slow Jams

image

"A collection of typographic gifs based on rnb/hip hop lyrics…It was Valetine’s Day! I decided to celebrate with a whole lot of 90s rnb/hip hop lovin/cheatin/cryin/trying tracks, releasing a series of typo based gifs on Instagram called ‘INSTA SLOW JAMS’. All the type and pattern work was hand drawn, then built up digitially to animate.

More to come and I am obviously very single with the time to do this.”

Never Ending Bummer | Solo Show

image

"‘Never Ending Bummer’ is a series of illustrative, hand generated type based artworks that visualises cycles of anticipation, observation and reflections of a spent summer.

These monochromatic works develop experimental compositions where letters and phrasing are deconstructed from a cyclical theme, allowing each phrase to become an exaggerated visualisation of anticipation and disappointments. While each work is unrelated to the next, the final collection is layered with details of rhythm, repetition, and sequence, further shaping the sense of dramatic change within seasons, relationships, time, and fortune.”

She studied graphic design at Troyes before embarking on a freelance career and is now working on many projects with 83a studio, specializing in video-projected imager…The works of S†ella feed the huge zoological diversity and question the living through the prism of anthropomorphism. Animals are guinea pigs for her which she methodically dissects materials, and body movements…her works are related to medical illustration, anatomical portraits, made with care, humor and precision.”

"It can be hard to find a card that has the perfect sentiment – that’s why we created the Blank Collection. A series of floral woodcut illustrations and vintage styled sans serif typography is offset by your sweet, silly or serious handwritten message. With a little bit of guidance along the way you can add your own words to create a truly unique and original card that will really let someone know how you’re feeling.

The blank collection cards are A6 (105 x 148.5mm) and letterpress printed on Stephen Smart White 330gsm, a 100% carbon neutral stock.”

Flynn’s Anaglyph Letterpress Print

image

"A place where you can pass from one dimension to the other, Flynn’s is the home of the fabled Tron arcade that, in 2010, transported Sam Flynn into a digital world. Our print is an homage to that moment – put on a pair of classic red / blue 3d glasses and the anaglyphic print comes to life with another dimension.

Created for the ‘Directors Cut’ Look Hear exhibition 2013, Flynn’s was letterpress printed by hand on our Asbern proof press in two colours on Crane Lettra 300gsm.”
