It is once again the time of the year when I get to share our new print series with you. This is always so much fun. Over the course of the next week, leading up to the Opening at Mugshots Fairmount on Saturday, October 8, I'll be previewing the 15 new prints. If you live in Philadelphia, and want to jump the gun, you can go to Mugshots or Green Line Cafe, where the prints are already hanging.
This year's prints will first be available for sale at the opening, and then will go online for sale through our Etsy Shop on Monday, October 10.
So without further ado...
1. Clinton Reno's first Screens 'N' Spokes print comes to you on the wings of birds. I often wish I had a few helpers to carry me across the finish line at the end of long rides. Clinton has a great illustrative style which I've admired for years, and I'm really excited to finally have him involved.
2. We were originally going to working with Minneapolis designers Landland last year, but things didn't work out. I'm really glad they did this year. Landland tend towards a more abstract, sometimes even surreal style than much of the Screens 'N' Spokes oevre. Their first Screens 'N' Spokes piece almost feels like a companion piece to Mark Forsman's 2010 print.
4. This first preview is filled with new S'N'S contributors. Brooklyn-based illustration team Two Arms Inc. designed two killer helmets, one for the man in your house, and the other for the lady. I'll let you decide which is for which, no judegments. Each print is 12x12, LP-sized, and you'll be able to order them seperately or as a specially-priced, matching-numbered, set.
