3rd Rail At The London Illustration Fair In Pictures

The London Illustration Fair came to a close this Sunday after hosting 69 exhibitors, dozens of workshops and showcasing the work of countless creatives. As well showing a selection of Artist Beer Visions screen prints we also used this as an opportunity to give the screen print series we released for Pick Me Up a bit more air time. It was also a great excuse to release a few more products which included festive tea towels and Christmas jumpers designed by Kristyna Baczynski, a new t-shirt and matching sticker sheet by Tony Riff and a fresh 5 colour screen print release from Hattie Stewart. All new products will be hitting the web store tomorrow (Wednesday 7th December). If you didn’t get a chance to make it down fear not! We’ve compiled this gallery of photos of the highlights across the 4 days.

3rd Rail x Malarko

We’re super excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with street artist Malarko for the second in a series of print collaborations. Conceived to showcase the most innovative in-house screen and garment printing techniques we want the limited edition t-shirt boxes to deliver unique and beautifully made art products released on a quarterly basis. This ongoing project will encourage participating artists to reimagine the humble t-shirt and screen print for a final interpretation that’s sure to be completely original every time. Initially gaining notoriety by adorning shop shutters with his vividly colourful and jazzy characters Malarko’s body of work now encompasses a whole range of media and has been commissioned by the likes of Adidas and the V&A to name a few so we’re pretty chuffed to have him on board.
