Jon McNaught in the SPX Collection at the Library of Congress
Jon McNaught is a master print maker and his Dockwood by our really good bros at Nobrow, is one helluva book IMHO. So when he agreed to to the program guide cover for SPX 2013 AND bring us the original, we were indeed honored.
Now check out how he did this, He used 2 layers of acetate, did half the drawing on one and half the other. When the top overlayed the lower layer, it set the black ink drawing on the lower layer to a nice shade of grey. Which he then colored into the blues used on the program guide.
One real difficult piece of work, if you ask this un-artistic person.
And he based the design on a real cool mid-1930’s sports ad he found.
Jon’s is MUCH better…..
And Sara Duke is once again happy with her latest addition to the SPX Collection at the Library of Congress….
