PRE-ORDER CLOSED: I’ve known Ben for a good number of years now after first seeing one of his early illustrations and making a swift purchase. Drawn in by his traditional style I was a fan from the first moment I saw his work and the chance to do a collaborative piece together was something I jumped at.
All of Ben’s intricate work is completely hand finished from the first stroke of the pen, to cutting each design in to Lino or wood and then creating the final print. This process creates a beautiful and unique finish to every final print. The process of this exclusive TLV x SICCo design was no exception and working closely with Ben we have developed his original artwork in to a beautiful 3 colour hand screen printed tee and signed digital art print which is taken from his original indigo blue wood print. Each print comes on heavyweight matte finish paper and is signed by the artist which is exclusive to this pre-order.
The final design is an awesome collaborative mix of Ben’s traditional style mixed with our early SICCo ‘Branded’ anchor, especially with the distressed look and feel of the final screen print. We’re both really happy with the final design and stoked to be able to launch it as an exclusive Pre-Order on men’s and women’s tees with a signed A5 print.
“I experimented with a few different mediums and materials before finding techniques and processes that worked for me. My work has evolved to primarily focus on lino cuts which I hand print, mostly using hand made, recycled or wood free papers.
Gradually over time this has expanded further to include wood cuts and custom skateboards and in doing so I have discovered mediums that I am truly passionate about. Carving in particular helps to focus my mind and channel my energies positively, releasing me from the pressures of the day to day.
I draw my inspiration from a variety of sources with traditional western tattoo art a major influence however my love for music and skateboarding can often be seen throughout my work.
It is also important to me that my artwork has a low environmental impact and where possible ecological values remain at the core of my work, utilising handmade, fairly traded and sustainable materials. Most important to me however is that my work is enjoyed by others and that is as much as anyone can ask for.”
