Continuing on with this harebrained plan – here is the next stage, the comp. This is where we end up when all the Shift, Squint, Re-Size, Shift, Squint, Shift part of the process is pretty much done… a lot of the dusting and colouring is done too and there’s just a little Separating/Splicing left to do. The colours will no doubt change – this’ll be a good print for doing different colourway versions of actually – so look forward to that!
As you can see, we ditched the flight case and made the she wolf (inspired by Esben’s ‘No Dog’) as big and strong as we could in the A2 composition. The new album was recorded by Steve Albini in a simple stripped down way to convey a sound that was tempestuously heavy in places while fragile in others – we kinda wanted to do the same thing with this print – nothing fancy or gimicky, big and strong and simple. We are toying with one extra focal detail that may well make it in – a locket …we’ll see.
Those colours are gonna change by the way – we just showed a near monochrome version here – we seriously hope we can get nice strong opaque irises like that though.
Fingers crossed everyone – hopefully there will be some shots of the print looking something resembling this in a couple of days!
Once again it’s time to get a sweet black tea on the go – cheers!
