devil_worship_04

After last year’s great experience with the Cliver/Charles Manson and Todd Francis/Nature’s Revenge prints, I decided to go ahead and do one print a year from now on, honoring artists that really made skateboards not look like skis or frying pans over the years…

Also, let’s face it, it’s kind of a way for me, you and everybody else to display the sickest board graphics ever without spending 4 Grand into an actual NOS board found on Ebay.

It went through a few tribulations, which definitely contribute to fuel the strange curse theories around this graphic (ever got your test print shipped to Texas mysteriously? Me, yes), but finally, yes, it’s here! Just saying, the two last ones sold out in two weeks… Feel me? Without further ado, and quite a pride, and an eternal gratitude for Natas’ and Marc McKee’s support on this project, let me introduce you to this…

Memory Screened Print Series # 3 :

« Devil Worship » graphic (1991)
 
by Marc McKee
 
Run of 100, signed by Natas Kaupas and Marc McKee

This will is a unique run of 100 prints, all numbered and signed by both Natas and Marc McKee –there won’t be one more printed after these run out, so don’t sleep ! Last time they pretty much sold out in two weeks, to give you an idea.

Quality-wise, the seps were all re-drawn by Marc McKee himself especially for this print, and we decided to work with the amazing workshop Something Ill (Already responsible for the super sick job on Marc’s Dave Hackett tribute prints).

Paper ? Of course, a classic 270 gram Velin d’Arches, inked from actuel silk screens (because, well, fuck digi/laser bullshit, to put it in layman terms).

Tech stuff

MEMORY SCREENED PRINTS SERIES # 1 / SEAN CLIVER and TODD FRANCIS (LIMITED EDITION OF 100) SILK SCREEN PRINTS : SOLD OUT!

OK, so that was the big surprise that was pathetically hyped up in the post below -need some work on my marketing skills, I know. Regardless, here’s the deal: last summer I was curating a few chunks of that huge skateboard art show in Paris called Public Domaine -Thrasher Peabody cover et all.

Besides picking the photographers exhibited on the fourth floor, I was in charge of a deck exhibit downstairs under the moniker Agents Provocateurs -an anthology of offensive/controversial/political/message-charged skateboard graphics from then (1990-ish) to now.

So that could have been that. But the venue in question bares a souvenirs-type of shop, and I thought it’d be cool to pick a few of the graphics exhibited and make super high-quality silk-screen prints of them, just a run of 100 prints for each. The two chosen ones ended up being the Sean Cliver “Charles Manson Brown” done for 101 in 1993, and Todd Francis’ “Nature’s Revenge” deck for Julien Stranger out on Antihero.

To make sure this awesome art was going to be treated right, I really wanted to work with Anagraphis/Les Freres Lumineux, whose outstanding portfolio print work for legendary alternative cartoonists (Robert Crumb, Gilbert Shelton…) is mind-blowing, albeit of course not cheap at all. Prints were made, they looked great, a bunch sold at the show… But the leftover was pretty much promised to rot in the shop’s basement (as in: exposed to water leakage! Unbelievable) once it was over. It killed me to see it going to waste. So in superhero fashion, I went and salvaged the about 50 prints of each graphic left. The only thing I forgot is that I was broke but fuck it, I bought them all back. And here they are now. Once these are gone, they’re gone, and now they’ll be for sale from Memory Screened. Once this post is pushed down, they’ll still be available while supplies last by clicking on the “Print Shop” page up there.

So, if I was you I’d hurry ’cause these will be going fast and there aren’t a ton left, they will never be re-printed, they’re hand numbered (the Sean Cliver one is also hand-signed by Sean) and mind you that I’m selling them at pretty close to what they cost me.

On a final note, I really wanted to thank all these people involved who accepted just prints as compensation for having their art/name/companies associated to these -and who understood that that whole project is far from being a money-maker: Sean Cliver, Todd Francis, Natas Kaupas, Jim Thiebaud, Julien Stranger. Thanks, dudes!
