Fundraising screenprint for StokeyLocal

I've just finishing screenprinting this 4 layer CMYK screenprint to help raise funds for Stoke Newington's Stokey Local campaign. It's a limited edition of 40 prints on 300g Fabriano paper, it measures 30x40cm and is available to buy for just £40.

Importantly, every penny from the sale of these hand-pulled screen prints will go to the Stokey Local Community Fund, helping them to take their case to the Court of Appeal.

So, if you'd like to buy one of this limited edition of 40 prints and contribute to a worthy local cause, please contact me via email:

*** UPDATE 15.12.2014: 30 of 40 prints sold so far... ***

(If you're not acquainted with the details of Stokey Local's ongoing campaign against the proposed housing and retail development in Wilmer Place, Stoke Newington N16, you can read all about it here.)

For those who are interested in the process, the screenprint was printed with yellow, magenta, cyan and black inks in the order shown below:

First layer - Yellow
Second layer - Magenta
Third layer - Cyan
Final print with Black

We Built This City - revolutionising London's souvenirs

Last night I dropped in on the launch party of We Built This City, a great new pop-up shop on London's Carnaby Street which aims to "revolutionise the souvenir offering of London", offering a huge range of individual and amazing alternative souvenirs, from screenprints to ceramics, tea-towels to books. The WBTC team have done an fantastic job bringing it all together and everything is really beautifully displayed.

I'm very pleased to have five of my London screenprints included - four of my "No Underground. Get Over It" series and one of my "Magnificent Seven London Cemeteries" - amongst such great design company.

There are prints and products by Neil Stevens, Lucy Loves This, Ursula Hitz, James Brown, Victoria Eggs, Hoxton Mini Press and Alfred and Wilde, and many others.

If you're in London's West End over the next few weeks (the shop is open until Saturday January 10th) then drop by to see all the amazing London-based gifts and souvenirs that Alice Mayor and her We Built This City team has sourced.
