Kevin Tong’s Ladytron Poster and Art Print

If you follow this site, you have watched Kevin Tong’s posters get better and better right before your eyes.  His newest one for Ladytron and The Faint has me pretty blow away.  It’s a 14″ x 25″ screenprint, has an edition of 70, and is $25.  If these bands aren’t your thing, there is also a very limited art print version.  “The Vultures” is a 14″ x 25″ screenprint, has an edition of 20, and is $30.  Visit TragicSunshine.com.

  3. That’s nice of you to say, but I don’t do it for ratings, I do because I love the art so mu-, wait, I do want be be loved. Why won’t the world love me? Why won’t any of you love ME?

    Just kidding. Like anything worthwhile, it takes time. I guess I’m still the kid out there, shuffling his papers and such.

  4. god damn i love this. i looked at it and hoped that there was one done with out the band names and look at that. Kevin takes care of it. Ordered!

  5. LOL

  6. I’m gunna steal Kevin’s brain so I understand colour better….

  7. You guys’ll shit, but I learned a lot about color from working as a staff illustrator for Lakeshore Learning Materials in Carson, CA. They make kid products, but have some of the most talented illustrators on staff there. The old guys knew color and color standards for printing like it was written in their DNA.

  8. Kevin,
    Love your stuff over at tragicsunshine and I have your iSteam Phone AP hanging on my wall.
    To be honest, I would have about half of your stuff if it was in the 18 X 24 format. Custom framing is a killer…

  9. I hear you on that end. About the framing. I have had others tell me the same. It might result in more sales, but I feel like standard frame sizes kill my art. They flatten or misshape the composition.

    I am trying to figure out a happy compromise, because I appreciate the sales and hate for you to have to spend extra money.

    You don’t necessarily have to have the frame fit perfectly around it. You can leave space around the image and have the poster mounted on a nice mat.

  10. That’s always a dilemma Kevin. But I agree with you, the reason we have never asked for standard sizes for Screens ‘N’ Spokes prints, is because we don’t want to compromise your ideas or art.

    Of course it does mean a bit more work on our end doing the framing… but so far it’s been worth it.

  11. This is really incredible stuff. I’m so happy i saw this. Great job to all involved.

  12. Thanks Nick. Who’s this all?
    I worked alone on this one. I drew and printed it myself.

  13. Sorry about that, I was reading your blog about danny askar and writing this at the same time.

  14. Oh yeah, Askar helps occasionally, but works as a web developer. Right now, he’s doing that stuff, so I am rolling alone for a while.

  15. So the art print is sold out? Don’t see it on there? Too bad, really cool design, but don’t want to be a walking billboard for a band I don’t know.

  16. Forget it, Scratch that, the posters are just in 2 different sections. dohhh, carry on.

  17. Yeah, I am working on making my site more user friendly. I designed and coded it myself, and it shows.

  18. I picked one of these up the moment that I saw it. I was thinking of picking up the concert edition as well, but I’ve held off. I might come around. Brilliant print!

  19. Hey Kent. No worries. If you change your mind and the concert edition is sold out, you can send the art print back to me, along with a check for $60 and I’ll screen print the text onto it. Instant conversion!
    Just kidding, the numbers wouldn’t work out.

  20. I didn’t go to the show, but my friend Fez did. He said Christina Aguilera was there. So i guess I didn’t miss much.

  21. Nick, could you please tell Danny Askar that Jonny Olsen has been wondering how he is. If possible I would like to have his e-mail. I’m an old friend of his who has been out of the country for a while. Thanks for passing the word along.
