One of the first projects I had to complete at the Transom Story Workshop was a show promo. It needed to be 30 seconds long and be for a fake show. I chose to do one for Neighbors as if it were on WPLN in Nashville. Let's just say I'm casting a vision for the future.
Here stands Carl Carbonell in the bowels of Hatch Show Print. My wife and I showed up this afternoon because he told me the Neighbors prints were done. We were graciously let in to see the inner workings of the place. He generously offered to make these prints as perks for the Neighbors Indiegogo campaign. I had no idea they would be this involved and turn out this well.
You can see that in one hand he holds the woodcut, and in the other the finished print. He would apply one color, then carve some more, and apply another color. The process can never be repeated. What we have is a one of a kind poster.
If you plan on coming to the Neighbors Live! event this Sautrday I will raffle off one or two of these!
