SPD Awards

It has been a walk down memory lane this week, with several awards bringing old favorites up to the top of the blog.

This week I heard that both my segway lobster spread for SKI Magazine and the contractor disaster piece for This Old House won Society of Publication Design Awards of Merit.

Congratulations, John. You are having a good year.

For the 'This Old House' image, did you use a sponge to get that nice texture in the background?

Hi Kyle

I did a block print without anything cut into the block. Just inked up a piece of linoleum and printed it a bunch of times. My inspiration for that look came from an amazing book of old NYC drawings called "UP and DOWN New York" ... look her up. You'll find all my secrets.
