We've been working with graphic artist Gordon Shaw to publish his latest comic book Bittersweet. The fourth instalment in the RICK series, Bittersweet is a funny & moving comic about living with an incurable brain tumour. Inside you’ll find heated conversations between Gordon and his own tumour, Rick, alongside observations on guilt, fatigue and mortality. An important, insightful and deeply personal account of the artist’s experience, full of brain facts and big feels.

There’s nothing more exciting than getting a new ink colour to play with! This is the one you’ve all been waiting for - we’ve had a lot of requests for a fluorescent pink, so here it is. Just like our fluorescent orange, this ink is unique to the riso process - you can’t get these kind of colours with CMYK.

Over the year of 2018, Out of the Blueprint is hosting residencies for young artists, co-ordinating exhibitions, and developing and delivering a programme of workshops, educational projects and monthly print events. This year long programme of activity is supported by The National Lottery via Creative Scotland.
