Pulled: A Catalog of Screen Printing

Parsons Illustration adjunct faculty member Mike Perry has just published a new book–Pulled: A Catalog of Screen Printing.  Pulled is a collection of design by various different designers working in the medium of screen printing:

“Popularized in the 1960s by Pop artists like Andy Warhol, screen printing remains a favorite among artists due to its versatility, duplicability, and relatively low cost. In Pulled: A Catalog of Screen Printing, best-selling author Mike Perry (Hand Job, Over and Over) collects the work of more than forty of today’s most talented designers who are, in their own way, pushing the boundaries of this dynamic medium.”                                               – description from Mike’s website

Mike is also the author/curator of Hand Job: A Catalog of Type, and Over & Over: A Catalog of Hand-Drawn Patterns.

An exhibition related to the book’s release is at Yes Gallery in Cincinatti, OH through July 27th.

Mike Perry designs for Semigood

Illustrator Mike Perry is a new addition to the Parsons Illustration stellar roster of adjunct faculty!  For those of you not in his Materials and Methods class, and as a way of introduction, we’d like to highlight a project Mike participated in recently.  Here’s the scoop:

Boutique furniture company Semigood Design, based in beautiful Seattle, boasts an impressive lineup of products….With a nod to the past and to Danish styling, the furniture is functional, locally-sourced and sturdy. And with the new flat pack ready-to-assemble line, it’s put together in about 5 minutes.

Semigood recently collaborated with Mike Perry for a customizable, limited-edition asset to their Rian collection (see image above!). Adding to their already colorful product line, Mr. Perry left his singular mark on the stools in the form of a playful surf-aquatic theme. Playful and appropriate: Semigood is donating considerable proceeds from the sales to the Surfrider Foundation.

In addition to this project, Mike always has a lot of other things in the hopper.  You can check out his website for more!  Welcome to the Illustration neighborhood, Mike.

The Exquisite Book
More details on the book:

In The Exquisite Book, one hundred indie artists play an ingenious version of the Exquisite Corpse drawing game. Each adorns a page with artwork—having seen only the page of the artist immediately prior and using a single horizon line to connect the two. Some continue the “story” quite literally while others build on the previous page in more fanciful ways. This astonishing volume’s format is as unique as its content, with each of the book’s ten chapters residing on a ten-page accordion pull-out, allowing readers to view the art continuously. With an illustrated foreword by Dave Eggers, and art from such luminaries as James Jean and (Parsons Illustration Alum) Jill Bliss, this charming book is, simply, exquisite.

You can pick up a copy of the book here.

Jill isn’t the only Parsons Illustration-related person in the book: Illustration faculty members Jordin Isip and Mike Perry are in on the action as well!  Congrats to all.
