Now nothing says a little early 1970's Haight like a black light poster. Our February 2009 Juxtapoz cover artist, Mars-1, just released a black light print through San Francisco's Electric Works. The Blacklight Flocked Poster is hand-silkscreened with fluorescent UV inks and black velvet flocking.

Here are the notes at SF Electric Works:

Each 32" x 25" poster is signed by the artist and due to the hand printing of the silkscreen each one varies just a little from the other making every one unique.

This is a limited-edition signed and numbered blacklight poster. The color background was applied with a process called "Split Fountain" in which all 5 colors are put on the screen and mixed into the gradient in one pull as the squeegee goes across the screen. Each pull mixes the inks a little differently so each print is unique. The fluorescent inks are UV reactive so the poster has one look in the daylight and totally different colors under blacklight.
