- Terry Fan Collaborations: Leviathan and Very Fine Hat - Aug 2015
This is my collaboration with Terry Fan, an exceptional artist based in Toronto, Canada. His work gives insight into his unique style and vision. Antiquated Press is pleased to offer these editions based off of two original works by Terry, exclusive to Antiquated Press. In the collaborative spirit of the project, I’ve translated these images in my own style using the intaglio printmaking process. This involves painstaking etching on to copper plates. The result is a series of beautiful, limited-edition intaglio prints which are a unique blending of our two distinctive styles. Each print has subtle variations and is signed by both myself and Terry. These are the first of the Collaboration Series at Antiquated Press.

- Treehouse and Kodama - November 28, 2014 -
The inspiration behind treehouse comes from my own personal love and fascination with tree houses. When you are in a treehouse, there is this magical feeling.. it is quite unlike anything else. Being up in the trees with a slight breeze. The leaves whispering, the calm sway of the trees. It is one of a kind, and without fail it brings simple inexplicable joy. I remember building my treehouse with my dad when I was a child, and then as an adult I built a treehouse with my kids. The memories and feelings of wonder were just as familiar playing in the trees with my kids as when I was a little guy. The magic of being in the trees is only a climb up a ladder away. I have considered these houses in the leaves, and how attractive it must be for the forest sprites. A place for the spirits, the kodama to enjoy. I imagine the countless abandoned tree houses in the woods. Or the ones that are all quiet at night being irresistible for them to occupy and more than likely a big part of the magic one feels in a treehouse has to do with these guys. It is a little place where the tinkerings of man and the natural way of the woods come together. So I made this edition, and its little companion. To celebrate the magic and wonder. I went with an antiqued white arches paper that compliments the woodland mood of the editions. - Joe
Important note: each edition of treehouse includes a matching numbered edition of Kodama. Kodama is made to be a companion edition to treehouse. I printed up a few extra to offer for those who perhaps would just want the little one, or who cannot afford treehouse.
