DLB delivers even more inspirado your way. This time we dive into the world of printmaking with some great relief prints.
Here at Design Less Better, we have a strong preference for images with strong contours and high contrast, qualities one often finds in printmaking. Today we have some fine examples of this craft.
First up, we have a couple of prints from Stephen Alcorn’s Modern Music Masters series.
I love the geometry in this piece, especially the mountains. It’s so well composed. The viewer’s eye travels from the symmetry of the train engine up to Johnny’s gaze. Is it just me, or are his eyes meant to be part of the stars?
Then there’s this Woody Guthrie print:
There’s a lot to like here. The sense of motion and fluid lines are great, but I think what attracts me most is the setting. Flanked by corn, walking the highway, it’s like Guthrie is traveling the Midwest somewhere close to my hometown.
Letterpress is usually associated with stuffy business cards and wedding stationary, but Yee-Haw is bringing it back down-home in style.
