Ghostland Observatory at The Warfield poster by Frank Zio

Artist Frank Zio created a 6 color silkscreen poster completely hand illustrated and printed on uncoated Cougar 100lb. stock for the Ghostland Obesevatory concert at The Warfield in San Francisco, CA on August 20, 2010. This poster measures 14″ x 25″ and comes from an edition of 160, signed and numbered by the artist.

What we have here is a beautifully grotesque 6 color silkscreen, 3 colors of which are blends, meaning that the ink is mixed in the screen to create a (hopefully) nice, smooth gradient. It is definitely my cleanest print work, with air-tight registration and sumptuous color. I went all out on this one, the art for the poster being completely hand drawn with ink by pen and brush. I also ordered some special natural white uncoated paper stock, made with 10% post consumer waste, so feel good, O Patron of Posters! – Zio
