Forget the latest desktop printer from HP or Epson, what you need is a new miniature printing press designed by the traveling open source design studio Letterproeftuin out of the Netherlands. Created for the International Poster and Graphic Design Festival Chaumont earlier this year, the miniature screen and letter printing presses were created so that Letterproeftuin could create smaller prints while on location at printing shows. While it doesn’t look like they have any plans to mass produce the presses I imagine such a thing could be extremely popular these days. See much more here. (via Quipsologies, Printeresting)

For my first guest post here at Colossal, I have to share the work of one of my favorite artists of all time, Conrad Botes. Growing up in South Africa under Apartheid, Conrad’s work tackles serious issues of race and the human condition with a twist of post-pop cartoon imagery. As one-half of the brain behind Bitterkomix (the other being Anton Kannemeyer), Botes also used the format of the comic as a critique on Afrikaner culture and policy, branching into criticism of South African society in general (resulting in being banned in his own country at one time). Taking printmaking beyond simple decoration and comics beyond simple entertainment, Botes is a true example of what an artist should be.
