Flatstock Hamburg, Germany

September 18, 2013

Clintprints is once again traveling abroad to exhibit across the globe. This time I will be traveling to three new countries…The Netherlands, Germany and Turkey! While in the Netherlands I will be spending some time with the awesome artist Mirjam Dijkema, visiting Vera Studios in Groningen and taking a trip across the German countryside with artist Joris Diks. In Hamburg the American Poster Institute will be hosting the 10th European flatstock at the Reeperbahn festival and I will have a booth featuring the work of myself, Clint Wilson. If you happen to be around during Reeperbahn please stop by my booth and say hello. Check out this amazing poster created to advertise Flatstock Hamburg this year:

After visiting Germany I will tour Turkey for a good week.

I intend to document my travels and adventures with video logs that I will upload to clintprints.com. If you would like to follow my travels please frequently visit my “Adventures” page. Also friend me or like Clintprints on FB to see my travel logs. Bon Voyage!

Bernard

September 17, 2013

September brings us a whole new type of animal…or rather a plant. Bernard is a Saguaro Cactus and he lives in Marfa, Texas. He is a little lonely given that there aren’t many choices in friends in the desert…also anyone that tries to become his friend is usually prickled. If only little Bernard were given a good home to rest in. That’s where you come in! Bernard will be available at both Parts and Labor and Nakatomi very soon.

Vincent

September 17, 2013

Here at Clintprints things have been rather busy, so I must apologize in advance because Vincent is a little late to the release. Vincent was born at Clintprints in August and is a very sly fella. He is a Bushmaster Pit viper and he lives in the deep jungles of the Amazon in Santarem, Brazil. Vincent will soon be available in both Part and Labor in Austin, TX and on Nakatomi in sets of a 12×12 print, a 5×5 print and a sticker. Say hello to Vincent:

Ryoko the Red Panda

July 29, 2013

Ryoko made her debut this month at Flatstock 40 in Chicago, Illinois. She is a Red Panda from Southwestern China. She is very intelligent but prefers to be alone with her thoughts. Very much an introvert, she spends much of her time by herself in trees contemplating. You can give this little critter a new home soon:

Welcome to the month of June. We are now a little further than half way through the month and my friend Keiko is just dying to meet you. So without further ado, meet Keiko the Koi:

Keiko WEB

Keiko is actually a Ryukin goldfish. She lives in Japan where she has been adopted by families of Koi. The Japanese tea gardens offer Keiko a plush life with plenty of food and good company. She often wonders what life would be like in the oceans. Someday maybe she will meet a special someone from the ocean to tell her all about it.

As a special treat, please enjoy this video of the making of this print featuring the music of local Austin band, the Bumping Uglies:

On another note I would like to take a second to speak about the ocean. Illegal whaling, poaching, litter and a multitude of other issues face our friends of the seas. There is a lot that we can chose to do to help, it starts with being responsible. Using reusable bags, placing our trash in the appropriate places and taking care of this world we live in. If you’d like to know more about some of the issues the face the ocean and how you can help please visit PangeaSeed:

PANGEASEED

PangeaSeed is an organization that I can get behind because they have a great message and support the arts in their effort to make this world a better place for both humans and the creatures we share our lives with.

Here’s a little info on PangeaSeed straight from the source:

Established in 2009, PangeaSeed is an international movement uniting and educating individuals across the globe on the importance of protecting sharks and preserving the oceans.Pangea derives from ancient Greek meaning entire Earth. It’s the concept of the super continent surrounded by a single vast ocean that existed about 250 million years ago before the current continents were separated into their now recognizable forms. Sharks balanced and controlled the oceans then and they continue to now…but for how much longer?PangeaSeed aims to unify and connect individuals around the world, opening a dialog to share ideas and develop a better global understanding of our connection with sharks and the oceans. Through education, awareness and action we are working together to solve this environmental crisis. No matter where you are in the world, your lifestyle and consumptions habits positively or negatively effect every animal (including humans), plant, and ecosystem on the planet. In short, like Pangea, we are all connected.Usually when someone thinks of the word “seed”, it conjures up an image of growth. Through the PangeaSeed network, we strive to grow together to develop a better global understanding of the need to protect sharks and preserve the oceans.The “seed” in PangeaSeed is also an acronym meaning Special Education Ecology and Design.

Sustainability represents a core value of PangeaSeed. Continuously educating youth and adults the world over to consume more responsibly and consciously, PangeaSeed strives to be a positive and proactive example of sustainability in a world of rampant consumerism and ecosystem exploitation. Whenever producing merchandise or aligning for a partnership, we make it a priority to choose environmentally friendly materials and like-minded partners to ensure our products have a smaller impact on the Earth’s natural environment.

Education is a major goal. Providing people with the necessary information and tools they need to work toward managing and solving the plight of sharks, threatened marine life and the oceans. Also, by actively conducting research, we aim to better inform ourselves and the general public of the realities and status of the issue.

Ecology promotion raises much need global awareness regarding our relationship with the natural world and the direct effect we have on marine biodiversity and the ocean ecosystem.

Design, art, film and photography we believe can transcend cultures and borders. Raising awareness and uniting people across the globe regarding key issues such as the plight of sharks.

Save the sharks, save the oceans, save ourselves.
