Oen JackJill

Here's another peek at ARTCRANK as we draw closer to Friday's event. This sad, kingly graphic is just a small section of the six color (yes, we said SIX!) silkscreen poster created by Oen Michael Hammonds for ARTCRANK. This lovely has been produced on the velvety surface of 100% Cotton, Neenah, LETTRA, 110 Cover, Pearl White at Coronado Studios. We'll give you a hint to the rest of the poster content - Oen has titled this "Jack and Jill".

Oen Hammonds is a award-winning art director who recently left Y&R Austin to become part of IBM Design. He is an educator of design at Austin Community College and past Education Chair for AIGA Austin. You can find him online at Visual Notepad. He is one of the designers you'll see profiled on Neenah's blog: Against the Grain following the event. You'll see his process as he created and produced his poster.

Join Oen and the other artists' handmade, limited edition works on paper that will be exhibited and for sale this Friday.

We'll have a Neenah photo station. Be sure to join us. Doors open at 5pm.

ARTCRANK Sneak: Roy Milton 2

Today's ARTCRANK sneak peek is by Roy Milton 2, art director at Sanders/Wingo. Roy's bike-inspired design has been letterpressed on Neenah's, Design Collection, PLIKE, Brown, 122 Cover. PLIKE is that "plastic-like" paper with a tactile, soft feel. We have to tell you that we have never seen this particular sheet letterpressed before. But that is just what Roy has done, with metallic inks, no less. And we love it. The letterpress work was produced by RedPress Printing. Intriqued? Take a look at the process video.

Please join ARTCRANK ATX tomorrow evening 5 - 10 p.m. at Fair Market. Take a work of art home with you. We'll be there, looking for you.

And visit Neenah's Against the Grain blog. They're talking pedal pushers.
