I love patches. Designing and collecting them it’s one of the funniest things I do for sure. Normally I come up with new ideas every time my last stock is over, but this time at Eclipse we decided it was a good move to produce this particular one again. From darkness to light is an old christian motto I came across with when I was diving in an Odd Fellows book… By the time we made the first run, this little piece of cloth made a lot of sense to Carlo, Rotor and me. It’s still powerful even now and that’s why it’s back on the game.
We know many of you lost the chance of getting one or more due to the small production. Now it’s available again through our webstore. It’s rougher than the previous edition, with no plastic backing for ironing…like fucking good patches should be. Not perfect.
So, be fast if you want some of them. Remember that we always include patches for the big orders and specially if you are interested in our original artwork.
Thanks again for supporting us.
Later than expected but finally, both are here. “Saved by the Storm” and “Hard to explain” are now reproduced as a limited giclée edition. Only 8 copies of each one are available. Both printed on the finest Hahnemühle museum etching paper. Each copy is signed, embossed and numbered by me. I’m really happy with the result of these prints and the work done at impressionart Barcelona. Both editions are now more secure and hard to copy due to the Hahnemühle certificate of authenticity and hologram system
Each copy and it’s certificate of authenticity share a pair of twin holograms. And even the paper has it’s own security system. Please take a look to the previous link to fully understand what I’m trying to explain…It’s been a while since I was trying to improve the level of coolness of our certificates at Eclipse, and I think I’ve found the answer. I hope that if you are into a serious collecting dementia, you’ll appreciate that!
I have also designed a pair of new patches. “Lost Art” patch is based on two of my favourite songs from the Queens of the Stone Age. If you know…you know. “Time” patch is about missing something, missing someone…remember?… canine devotion time can’t erase…Oh shit, the Queens again…
Both are fully embroidered with merrowed border. No backing for ironing sorry! It’s easier to sew them on your jean or leather clothes this way, trust me. All pictures will drive you to my online store at Eclipse. All the info you need about the prints and patches is there too. So please, don’t doubt to share and visit!
It took long, but it was worthy to end up doing things like I really wanted to. Thank You very much for your support once again, hope You like them.
Finally here! Time Machine II print is available through Proyecto Eclipse webstore. It’s been my first time working with this new version of the old known museum etching paper by Hahnemühle. As you can see in the pictures, the edge is deckled, just like it was a handmade watercolour paper. This adds a nice, less cold touch to this limited edition of 8 copies. All of them are signed, numbered and embossed by me. They come with a certificate of authenticity and they have been masterfully printed at Impressionart once again. All the technical info about the print is in the shop.
You’ll see I have also designed some new patches and I’m very happy with the result! The moon and star patch, named as Cycle patches, are only available together. The big one, is a twisted reinterpretation of Milton’s cosmology diagram from his classic poem Paradise Lost. The diagram appeared for the first time in Homer Sprague’s 1883 edition, nearly after 200 years of the first publication…and it’s amazing. My first idea was to replicate the diagram as it was:
But! despite it is an amazing picture and idea, it would be a poor challenge to do it that way. So I started to think and later on I found out my own concepts to make this patch. By switching some words and using the death representation as a centre, my Milton’s inspired patch came up. Last part of the process was doing a good research into some books of military insignia from the second world war and Vietnam too. I really love that stuff you know… I have also had the support and advice from El Carlo and Rotor. Once again their expertise in this field solved many problems before they even appeared. Take a look:
Don’t doubt to get your patch as soon as you can. Once they are gone, it’s almost sure they’ll never be back. Limited editions help us to keep our minds creative but they run out fast. We also like to have new stuff as often as we can at Eclipse.
Thanks again for keeping an eye into my work. All the info about the print and patches is available in the online store. Worldwide shipping is also available, as always.
