Cannonball off ‘yer back

My shirt gets printed
Cannonball Press at work–Mike Houston on the little Vandercook (vintage 1938) letterpress, and Martin Mazorra (the blur)stabilizing it

Saturday’s free The Shirt Off ‘Yer Back event at Space 1026 offered a double freebie–Cannonball Press was there with a tiny little press, printing woodblock prints–you supply the t-shirt (if you didn’t have one, they’d sell you one for $2). And Space 1026 supplied silkscreen prints for those who preferred.

There were no bad choices.

Here are our his and hers typewriters

Murray and I both went for a woodblock print of an old-fashioned typewriter. I’m thinking about adding some studs or something on the jeans shirt to complete my tough-girl image.

Check out my Flickr set for a sense of the event.
