Juke Joint Band Print
Methane Studios' process is hands-on and personal. Each piece is done individually by hand and they don't rush the process. They carefully choose their colors for each layer of printing. The ink is custom mixed and hand printed through screens onto high quality paper. Each color is applied, one at a time, and checked vigorously for accuracy to maintain consistency on every poster.
About the Brand: Methane Studios
Hello, Come on in. Don't mind the smell or dust there's plenty of goods here collected from the Methane barn. We have plenty of limited edition silk screen prints, cards, books and more so take your time and look around and thanks for stopping by. Methane Studios got its start in 1998 when Mark McDevitt and Robert Lee formed a partnership to produce silk screen posters for the East Atlanta club The Echo Lounge that featured some of the best independent bands in the late 1990's. The roots of this partnership started in the mid 1980s at Columbus College of Art and Design located in Columbus, Ohio. Robert and Mark,both from small Ohio towns, majored in Illustration and bonded over bad 80's haircuts, corndogs, good music and creating art to form a friendship that would transcend into creating award winning artwork recognized worldwide. Our status as well-known designers has led us to win awards in design competitions in How, Print magazine, and the Graphis poster annual. In college we learned in a more traditional way which allowed us to explore techniques that we use today. We never let our posters "look" computerized. We use the computer like a pencil or paint brush. The computer has allowed us to speed things up and to explore more options for sure, but we still belly up to the drafting table often. We draw inspiration form many artists be it musical or visual and our work tends to have a vintage influence and is shipped from our secret haunted studio.
