Accompanying Papillae Paradise is the showprint "Tayst·bûd". I had wanted to produce a piece that summerized what a Tastebud character was all about. I fell in love with the idea of creating an anatomy chart which would showcase all their little eccentricites. I really dig the way this came out, especially since this baby glows in the dark!
Thats right folks, a hidden layer within the print reveals an "interior" skull chart--complete with different anatomical call outs that appear only when the lights go out!
This is the first time I've experimented using glow in the dark inks with any of my work and I must say it turned out beautifully. Many thanks to Los Angeles based printer Ohdanielsan for his precise and amazing work!!
Tayst·bûd is an 11'x14'' 4 color screenprint, signed and numbered limited edition of 50 on Classic Crest natural white (80lb. cover) *Glows in the dark and are $30
