EmpirePress' Shop Announcement

Empire Press is illustration, design, and screenprinting in the heart of Texas. Empire press is located in scenic South Austin and includes equal parts Farley Bookout and Mark Pedini.

Pedini has always been a practitioner of pen and ink illustration. His love for screenprinting began in the in the post-bachelorette days of wander and wonder while a resident artist at AS220 in Providence, RI. With limited resources and a whole lot of inspiration, he began to create printed posters for events on AS220’s stage. After moving to Austin, TX in ’99, he met the local handful of like-minded individuals and soon after joined the online community at gigposters.com. Ever since he has been compelled to print.

Drawing from her first love of war propaganda illustration and Victorian history, Bookout is driven to create imagery of pensive women in lonely spaces. For the last few years she has worked diligently to couple these images with her favorite bands and many wonderful prints have resulted.
