The Pop-Sub 7″ print club is here!
The Pop-Sub is an ongoing series of mini-prints, each set having at least three 7″ square prints, packaged in a 45 rpm record sleeve!
This series is put together by none other than AYE JAY- and here it is straight from the horse’s mouth-
” Many a music fan was turned on to new bands via Sub Pop record’s 7″ singles club, so I had a thought… Why not make 7″ screenprints and do the same thing? So here we are, thanks to Tim and everyone at the Nakatomi print labs, I can proudly introduce the POP SUB 7″ print club. Each set will include a couple of prints by me, one by a special guest, and follow a loose theme. Friends that were kind enough to sign up for future suites include Michael Munter, Munk One, John Baizley, Jay Ryan, Justin Bartlett and Aaron Horkey. No lineup or theme info will be given until right before onsale date, and runs will be small. I’m not your pappy, but you may want to subscribe to make sure you don’t miss out!
For the first suite (at an introductory low low price!) I chose to do print versions of shirt designs I’ve drawn for shirt companies Shirts and Destroy & Pony Attack. These marry my loves music, comedy and pop culture juxtapozition. I was lucky enough to convince Nakatomi overlord Tim Doyle to add to the funny with a great portrait of my main man Don Rickles. Great work, ya hockeypuck!” -Aye Jay
Aaron Horkey has agreed to have his print somewhere within the first 6 releases, so if you MIGHT want to lock in on this one and get a subscription!
The subscription will bring one little packet of awesome to your door about once a month for the next 6 months- Volume One is available now, or included with the subscription.
And- is there a better X-mas gift than 6 months of awesome little art delivered to your door? I THINK NOT!
Please note- Volume 1 is in an edition of 100- each print is numbered out of 100 and each set is put together numerically. (meaning all 4 prints numbered 38 are together, and so on). That doesn’t mean that each future set will have 100 sets though- some may have much, much less.
Available for purchase HERE.
UPDATE-9-15: we had a huge response to the subscriptions, and decided to open it up to more than 20 total subscriptions sold. The total edition sizes will be unaffected, but now more people will have the chance to pick up a sub to the first 6 releases and lock them in at the lower price. If enough people purchase subs, I guess none of the individual sets will even make it to the site!
YOU asked, and WE listened!
