Sweet Oblivion

Have done quite a bit of printing this year for a very talented designer called Billy Thorpe who runs clothing company Sweet Oblivion. Here are some of my favourites from the past year. You can buy them from his online shop but you will have to be quick as he always sells out of them!!

 Transept are a Norwich band who are way beyond my descriptive powers so definitely check them out. They also run a record label called Dronehenge and I helped create their latest release 'Buff as Fuck'
The band created the monoprinted backgrounds then I screen printed the details over the top meaning that each record / cd sleeve is COMPLETELY and UTTERLY individual and unique. NICE!
