"My inspiration comes from my surroundings - textures, colors, emotions, thoughts and feeling all strike a match in my heart. My creations are my response to that…they are my innermost, purest, most sincerest reaction. In everything I make, there is a piece of me - in every brush stroke, splatter, arrangement and pen line. I never cease to question and challenge myself, inspiration makes my heart beat and lucky for me, it is abundant in my life. Every intricate cut brings me peace and every finished skull piece brings me immense satisfaction." — Myranda Escamilla

Leslie Ann O’Dell is a visual artist most known for photo-illustration. O’Dell’s work is comprised of haunting imagery… Ranging from dark imposing landscapes to mystifying portraitures, that evoke sensations of vulnerability, demise and the fear associated with such sentiments.” -SHK

Stay Hungry | 360 x 500mm letterpress print on Wild 300gsm (35% cotton stock).

“’We are a studio that believes in the narrative that drives us all. We hold in equal regard the process, craftsmanship and origin of every aspect of every project.’

Simon and Jenna Hipgrave established The Hungry Workshop to deliver this passion for storytelling through design, process, craft and collaboration. They’re hands on with many aspects of each project, often quite literally rolling up their sleeves and getting elbow deep in creating a perfect execution.”

Blank Collection

image

"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.”

Artist Statement

"The Victorian/Edwardian eras have always captured my attention. For years I’ve collected vintage photographs of men of the period. These men for me represent a masculine ideal, if largely a constructed one. Their bearded faces and distinguished attire are spectacular, while their stiff poses and serious expressions belie a certain vulnerability. My recent decision to translate these small colorless photographs into monumental, expressionist portraits is an attempt to ruminate on these contradictions. I also want to draw parallels between the rituals of initiation found in western culture and those practiced in tribal cultures by painting these gentlemen with colors inspired by Bird-of-Paradise and the extravagantly decorated Huli Wigmen of Papua New Guinea."
