  • D-CON 2016 RECAP

    If you've been following along. D-CON 2016 has come and gone, but all the fun still lives on in our hearts! Why? Because it was awesome, that’s why! What was so awesome about it you might ask?

    dcon1

    Pictured Above: This is why I'm broke.

    If you’ve ever been to Comic-Con before they started air-dropping celebrities in to promote their lackluster super hero cross-over movie sequels, the edges of the convention center would have more homegrown offerings ranging from cool posters to collectible toys.

    dcon2

    Batman and Robin looking a little.... ambiguous.

    As Comic-Con began to grow in popularity, so did the big corporations and their booths. This expansion started to push out the smaller vendors to the point where all that’s remaining of the art-geek scene congregated into a small sliver roughly 3 aisles wide, in addition to a handful of booths peppered across the entire convention center.

    dcon3

    Pictured Above: The intellectual equivalent of my teenage mind.

    Sure, standing for line for 4 hours to get Nicolas Cage to sign your t-shirt is fun and all, but for me, the best part of Comic-Con was looking for neat things to slap on my wall or pose on my bookcase. To make a long-boring story short, Designer Con is awesome because it takes that small sliver of indie artists, custom vinyl toys, and all sorts of one of a kind art and wraps an entire convention around it.

    If advertisers we're honest.

    Spanning over 90,000 square feet, D-CON packs a myriad of Artists from all walks of life… be it graffiti, low-brow, toys, or clothing, you’re guaranteed to see someone you recognize if you’re into this sort of thing. If you’re not, then we promise you’ll still see all sorts of awesome merch and collectibles.

    dcon5

    Don't know what that is... but I WANT one!

    As a sponsor of the event and also a vendor, we at PRINTS ON WOOD always feel at home when we attend. Granted, we sell limited edition art prints, but more-so because at heart, we’re all a bunch of art-nerds! Best part is we got to spend an entire weekend with some of our favorite artists!

    D-CON / PRINTS ON WOOD Booth 2016

    This year we had some of the biggest names from the industry were signing their exclusive POW/D-CON limited editions prints at our booth. Saturday we had the pleasure of hosting ...

    and Matt Gondek, "blowing it up" at our booth (Haha... get it?)

    Sundays at D-CON are always a little more chill, but just as much fun. We had Tara McPherson kick it at our booth, promoting her awesome print release, The Fountain.

    dcon11_tara

    Last, but certainly never to be considered the least, we had Jermaine Rogers signing his exclusive D-CON/POW wood print, Tell Me How To Help You...

    dcon12_jermaine

    While we love all those people and think they're super cool, we have to be honest. They weren't the only important guests at our booth this year. That's right. The people that make us the happiest at D-CON this year, and every year, is ALL OF YOU!

    dcon13_fans

    Pictured Above: Some of you!

    Prints On Wood wants to thank each and every one of you who came by our booth at D-CON 2016. Those of you who bought a print, shook our hand, asked for a sticker, told us we had a cool logo, and yes... even those of you who rolled your eyes when we told you how much some of the bigger prints cost! You are what makes this company and what we do great!

    dcon13_fam

    Although we've got a lot of people on the inside who help with that too!

    --------------------

    For those of you who couldn't make it out this year, stay  tuned to Prints On Wood as we'll start release some of our limited edition, exclusive D-CON wood prints shortly!

  • DesignerCon 2016

    For the past few weeks, our staff has been hard at work with assisting various artists print their artwork on wood pieces to prepare for DesignerCon.

    With Designer Con quickly approaching, many artists have asked for our help with creating wood prints. Typically, these artists send us their designs and we take care of the rest of the work.

    Why wood prints? Well to start, they're a truly unique canvas that adds another beautiful dimension to artwork. It enhances and transforms the original piece with a natural, more vintage feel. The wood grain gives the artwork a unique appearance, so in a way - no two pieces are the same. Printing art on wood creates a durable, beautiful image that these artists can proudly display anywhere.

    The photos above are just a few examples of the awesome pieces we've created for previous artists. These pieces will be displayed at DesignerCon, so keep an eye out while you're there!

  • PRINTS ON WOOD: D-CON 2016

    For our third year in a row, PRINTS ON WOOD is rocking the house at D-CON 2016!

    dcon_logo

    What is D-CON you might ask? Besides sounding like a Transformer with a 2.0 grade average, D-CON actually stands for DESIGNER CON. Although that might sound like a bunch of bearded hipsters wearing plaid shirts, congregating at their local coffee shop to argue the merits of Arial Vs. Helvetica, I assure you it’s way less pretentious than it sounds!

    punchable_face

    Underneath that man-bun, he’s secretly judging your font choices.

    D-CON is kind of like Comic Con... minus the long lines, summer heat, and gender neutral / body positive cosplay. It’s an annual art and design convention taking place November 19th & 20th at the Pasadena Convention Center, featuring 150 different Comic Book Artists, Graffiti Artists, and… uh.. Artist Artists. The best part is that all these weird wonderful people get together to sell awesome looking toys, posters, dolls, t-shirts, and… *drumroll*... PRINTS ON WOOD!!!

  • "Seahorse" by Emek Timed Release

    seahorse_emek_wood_print

    For the last twenty years, Israel-born artist, Emek, has been producing gig posters for some of the world's top alternative bands and festivals.  He has made a name for himself as a true creative savant. While working on the art work for A Rollins in the Wry with former Black Flag vocalist, activist, journalist and all-around cool dude, Henry Rollins, Rollins famously dubbed Emek, "The Thinking Man’s Poster Artist."

    All of Emek's gig posters are originally hand-drawn, then hand-silkscreened in limited runs for each individual concert or event. His attention to detail has made him a famed industry favorite, with the clientele roster to prove it. Some of Emek's clients include the likes of TOOL, Erykah Badu, Bright Eyes, Death Cab for Cutie, B.B. King, Queens of the Stone Age and Coachella Festival.

    His work has touched television airwaves -- in shows such as That 70s Show and New Girl --films, gallery walls and magazine pages -- such as Juxtapoz, Rolling Stone and Wired Magazine. His posters are popularly revered for having socio-political undertones, and he is acknowledged for his proactive approach utilizing art.

    seahorse_emek_print_on_wood

    Emek's very first poster commission was in 1992 for a unity rally and music concert which took place in Los Angeles as a response to the Rodney King verdict. The poster was part of a grassroots effort to acknowledge the acquittal of the Rodney King verdict and help soothe and bring a sense of healing to the fiery riots that followed. The poster depicts a scratchboard visage of Martin Luther King Jr. rising above a concert crowd, and was stapled to the city's burnt-out buildings following the unrest. It is speculated that no copies of this poster exist today.

    Now -- for his second Prints on Wood release -- Emek presents us with "Seahorse," a 9 x 12 in. print showcasing the artist's signature attention to detail. "Seahorse" is available between January 4th and January 11th and is purchasable with or without a custom frame. To make your purchase -- and to avoid that dreaded FOMO Effect -- simply click here.
