Ode to Ink Saturated Paper

Now in Production | The Making of Tide Runner Series
In the time of prevalent digital media and easily accessed full color printing, the screen print medium addresses a hand crafted approach to finished graphic work. The average millennial brain in the 20th Century is programmed to a life of instant gratification and quick results. Looking at the end results most people don't realize how much time goes into every detail of a hand crafted piece.

Each sheet of paper is measured, scored, trimmed, printed, sewn and bound by hand. There is something about methodically making each piece the sucks you in to this vacuum where time is lost. You blink your eye and three hours have gone by but at the end of the day you have something tangible that you can hold. Below is a small glimpse into the world behind the scenes of the Tide Runner Series.

I am drawn to the inherent tactile quality of raised ink, the thin layers of translucent colors, and the smell of ink drying. If you are of the same mindset visit Bows & Arrows MRKT and pick up a limited edition item. All Posters, Pocket Notebooks, and Tees were designed, printed and bound by Scott Wyss. There is no we in Bows & Arrows, nothing has left my hands. Photography: Casey Allred, Gary Benzel, and Scott Wyss
