I’m a multi-disciplinary designer living & working in Chicago. Not long after I had graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where I was first introduced to & fell in love with letterpress printing, I was offered the chance to be given a Chandler & Price platen press. While I had never used anything but a Vandercook cylinder press, I threw myself into it and have been building up a mini studio practice by the name of Ulterior Press.
Description of Process
These days I find it’s important not to mince words, and the punk band The Dead Kennedys said it best. Wood type printed on Speckletone French paper. The splatter was achieved using loosened ink and a tooth brush.
