Jon made three new prints for the Thursday, October 6th opening of High Above the Street, a retail space in Leeds, UK featuring over 80 brands and over 40 artists. The prints are signed and numbered in an edition of 25 each. They’re printed on Photo Rag Satin, 308gsm, size A2 (42cm x 59cm) for £100 (a 20.0% VAT will be removed for non EU customers). You can pick up Eeeny Meeny, Never Let Me Down Again and Love & War online here.
Jon created this poster inspired by Devendra Barnhart’s “It’s a Sight to Behold”. From The Independent UK:
For the past five years, the Yellow Bird Project’s Montreal-based founders, Matthew Stotland and Casey Cohen, have made it their mission to connect, as they say, “indie musicians, charitable organisations and T-shirts”. They have now enlisted 30 leading illustrators to create an artwork each, inspired by 30 songs – all, naturally, by cool indie bands – and collated them to create The Indie Rock Poster Book (Chronicle Books, £15.99). The royalties from every copy sold will go to a series of charities, all supported by musicians with impeccable taste. The book is, of course, a perfect addition to your coffee table, but it’s also a potential cure for a bare wall.
I’m late on the game reporting Jon’s Totem print for SAFEWALLS, but I did just find out that if you order now, you can get 10% off by entering “AM10POFF3D” at checkout. Does that make up for my tardiness?
Enjoy this feast for the eyes alternative poster by Jon Burgerman for Cirque du Soleil ® TOTEM™. Giclée on Epson Enhanced Matte 192 gsm. Paper size 24″ x 36″, image size 22″ x 33 1/2″. Printed in Canada.
Here’s a bit more about SAFEWALLS:
Each month, SAFEWALLS is pairing up with three cutting-edge artists to create original art posters inspired by Cirque du Soleil shows. With these artworks, SAFEWALLS tours the world following the trail of Cirque du Soleil shows to hold a monthly exhibition that grows in size as works from previous cities are added to the collection. By bringing Cirque du Soleil and visual artists together, SAFEWALLS celebrates street art and culture—the very roots of Cirque—and breathes new life into the time-honoured art form that is the vintage circus poster.
The term “safe walls” refers to legal spots in the urban landscape for local graffiti artists to do their work without the fear of sanctions.
Jon’s print is available now for $55 (don’t forget the discount code!) here.
Jon has a new print at the Victoria and Albert Museum:
The print, entitled ‘We Play at the V&A’, is about the exploration experienced by visitors to the museum. There are references to modern day culture and fashions in the characters as they dance around a selection of exhibits from the museums collection. The characters are caught contemplating the worth of the trinkets and clutter they surround their modern lives with and whether they will hold any value in hundreds of year’s time. Perhaps that’s not important now though; perhaps we should enjoy, learn and play whilst we still can.
The print was created exclusively for the V&A, and every purchase supports the museum. It’s an A3 risograph print (which translates to 11.7 x 16.5 inches), signed and numbered in an edition of 200 for 25 Euros (which translates to ~$36USD) available here.
The Art Below and The Sun newspaper in London invited Jon to participate in a group exhibition and charity event for Breakthrough Breast Cancer on December 13th. His piece is called “I Melt In The Sun”. More about the event, which took place at the Victoria & Albert Museum, can be found here.
Jon’s Happy Hour screen-print was first shown by Concrete Hermit at Christy’s South Kensington as part of the Multiplied show. Oil based inks make the colors really vibrant. Limited to only 50 copies, signed and numbered for £145 here.
“Clean air is lungtastic!” Truer words were never spoken. Today, the American Cancer Society launched the “More Birthdays” campaign. Jon has contributed a poster, print and wrapping paper featuring this new “Lungtastic” design. Each item is priced affordably, and you can’t argue that your dollar is going to a better cause. What do “more birthdays” mean to Jon? “The chance to eat way more cake than your fair share.” Check out products by Jon here.
About the movement for more birthdays:
For nearly 100 years, the American Cancer Society has been working to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. And we can’t do it without your help. The movement for more birthdays is about everyday people, just like you, coming together to make a difference. This year more than 11 million cancer survivors will celebrate another birthday, thanks in part to the progress we’ve already made. But we can’t stop there. With every person who joins the movement, we can get closer to the day when cancer never steals another year from someone’s life. It all starts by helping people stay well and get well, and by finding cures and fighting back.
Let’s take one more trip in the wayback machine, and we’ll catch up on current stuff tomorrow. This goes back to 2004, when Seismic, a UK-based creative design studio, developed the marketing campaign design for Rizla’s music festival ‘Inspired By’. The campaign received heavy rotation. Jon did the doodles.
Vomit Comet is Jon’s latest design for I Dress Myself: the Eco-Friendly Screen Printers. It’s is a limited edition three-color art print, hand printed using water based inks on A2 size on recycled paper. Each one has been signed and numbered by Jon. There are 60 in the edition for £45 each here.
