Industry and Inkslingers
The first of two weekends of Austin’s N-th annual East Austin Studio Tour was in full effect this past Saturday and Sunday. For their part, Industry Print Shop invited a bunch of local and semi-local print artists to throw an Inkslinger’s Ball in their spacious parking lot. I stopped by on Sunday to check out Industry’s newer location on Tillery (not exactly sure when they relocated) and see some prints. Sunday was unusually windy, not exactly ideal for an outdoor print sale, but there was a healthy crowd of diehard print-lovers mulling around and the exhibitors were in good spirits.
The following photo essay is part printshop tour and part open portfolio…
People rifling through stacks of flatstock posters. Industry is a design studio and production shop- squeegees-for-hire and producers in their own right. They had a pretty big catalog of posters for sale but also t-shirts, pillows and all manner of printed matter.
All pictures below are from the Inkslingaz Ball in the parking lot. As I mentioned above, it was a semi-local crowd. Iron Frog Press was down from Dallas and Ryan O’ Malley and Julia Curran were up from Corpus. Apparently, there were more out-of-towners from Dallas and Houston on Saturday but for whatever reason, they didn’t stay for the whole weekend.

Aubrey Carroll. Texas-style print sales: selling prints from the back of a pick-up.
The Amazing Hancock Brothers were on the scene.

Matt from Iron Frog Press was showing lots of woodcuts, some shirts, and stickers, too.
