Chris Fritton just recently finished a gig poster for art-rock lovelies Deerhoof and Xiu Xiu. They'll be coming to Mohawk Place in Buffalo on October 8th.The poster was printed using an intricately constructed form created entirely from border material, ornaments, and assorted small cuts; the letters in DEERHOOF are only defined as negative space. It took over 600 individual pieces (380 printable pieces, 210 spacers, 31 pieces of wood type, 29 pieces of 6pt metal type) to finish the print, including the outline wood type and the tagline.

The poster was printed in fluorescent orange and pms 223 pink on Cougar White double-thick stock. It measures 14.5" x 18.5". Printed in an edition of 100, signed and numbered, with a special edition of 25, signed and numbered - the special edition features an overprint of the ornamentation in pink (see photos). This poster will be available soon in our boutique and at our Etsy shop.
