carnival poster

When i bought the Brainchild at auction back in 2010, i also managed to purchase an original poster that was used to promote the attraction back in the day.

However, a whole load of my gear got ruined due to water damage in floods last year  including this poster. It was pretty much destroyed but i held on to it anyway. I’m so pleased i did, because i have managed to get a reproduction made which uses the artwork from the original poster.

This is a copy of the proof  that has been sent to me..


It is a 3 colour design for screen print, the lightest of which would be the base colour of the paper or cloth. The second colour would be a midtone [used for shadowing in the image above]. And the third would be a keyline [a dark colour, usually black] which would have all the linework.

I am having a one printed up at it’s original size (50x80cm) which should be here in time for the exhibition!
