Thomas Negovan poster by Malleus

Glow in Dark Variant

Ton of info from Malleus on this poster:

It’s the Thomas Negovan poster.
Beside being the owner of Century Guild gallery in Chicago, Thomas is a singer/composer and he’s recorded his new album “By Popular Demand” on WAX CYLINDER (bypassing all manners of modern electrical and digital technologies.)
And it’s great considering the period we’re leaving.
It’s fantastic to use old ways of doing things, it’s a way of touching our past, to create a link with what we’re now, what we have and the way we’re getting “computerized” and “empty”…

So, we worked on 4 different versions of the print.
The first idea was to use a glowing in the dark layer on all of them, but, while printing, we started in having a lot of doubts.
I know, phosphorescent is cool, but it’s also white and it popped out from papers in a terrible way.
So, while working on green, red and blue metallic paper with a perlescent ink, we decided that we wanted to do a version with glowing in the dark color, but it had to be on white paper.
But normal white paper is not so cool.
So we used the same incredible paper we used for the NEVE print (do You remember it?), a metallic iridescent one.
And the result is great.
Anyway, this is what we did.
First of all a regular version on green paper, 3 colors (silver, red and perlescent), run of 147 pieces.

Finally we have “Demoni”.
3 colors printed on white iridescent paper.
This is the only version glowing in the dark, revealing 3 skeleton demons coming out of an eye and an inscription saying: “The angels brought you progress, burned your flesh, watched your murder and called it art “
