LEDOUXVILLE PRINT, AS PRINT #5
Working over seven years as an art director and designer for Seattle-based Sub Pop Records and founding member of Patent Pending Design, Jesse LeDoux created iconic album and poster artwork for such artists such as The Shins, Iron and Wine, and Hot Hot Heat before launching his own illustration/design firm LeDouxville, in 2004. With work in the permanent collection at the Experience Music Project in Seattle, his art has been exhibited nationwide and abroad. He is also the mastermind behind Kidrobot’s most eclectic and hands-on blind boxed series to date, Critter Splitters. A Grammy Awards nominee, LeDoux currently works out of his studio in Providence, RI, where he continues to combine his avant-garde design sensibility with the basics, “pens, pencils and a few sheets of paper.”
This is a special print, employing an old printing technique called a "split fountain," or "rainbow roll," wherein two (sometimes more) inks are printed at the same time, blending where they meet in the middle. This makes each print unique. There is also a small blind-debossed image thrown in for fun. Blind-debossing is when an impression is made into the paper without ink or foil.
