Studio Shots, Matt Butler, Raleigh, NC Printmaker

Whisky Early, Whisky Often Print

Matt Butler is a Raleigh, NC based printmaker who cuts linoleum blocks into graphics that he prints onto TOMS shoes and posters.

His cheeky prints were a big hit at Kindred with phrases like “Whisky Early & Whisky Often” & “Either You Love Bacon Or You’re Wrong” proving to be the most popular.

A few weeks ago I visited him in his home studio to take promotional photos for the upcoming Rock & Shop Market that I produce. He’ll be participating for the second year in a row. I also made a video which I will be posting later which gives insight as to why he makes things and his process.

I love these little sneak peeks and this box above of his cut linoleum blocks.

A lifelong North Carolina resident, Matt even has a cool poster of his Grandfather’s mayoral campaign hanging up beside his printing station.

For more on Matt visit his etsy shop or stop by his booth at the Rock & Shop Market on Saturday April 6th in Durham.
