Last week we asked all of our readers to tell us which painting or album cover from John Baizley they'd like to see us develop into a mult-color screenprinted art print. Well, the people have spoken and the print with the largest number of votes, by a considerable margin, was the artwork for Skeletonwitch's Permafrost album. We will be working with Mr. Read More

As you may have noticed, we've been printing quite a lot of prints with the incredibly talented John Baizley. We've been working closely with John to bring his watercolor paintings to the world as multi-color screenprinted art prints. From Black Tusk's "Passage Through Purgatory" to Tiger Tiger "Cut Them Where They Bleed" to the recent Kvelertak print, it's been a thrill to see Baizley's artwork come to life on our presses.
So what's next? Well, that's where you come in. That's right, we want YOU to tell US what to print next!

Pick up your copy Thursday at Red Rocks or in our online store on Tuesday July 31st.
Here are some behind-the-scenes sketches from the creation of this poster: Read More

We just discovered comic artist Ed Piskor's ongoing series of online graphic novel shorts entitled Hip Hop Family Tree, part of his Brain Rot series. These comics, almost too good to be true, cover the early early early days of NY kids creating hip hop out of nothing, putting on block parties, recording the very first rap records, and birthing legends like Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaataa, and Kurtis Blow. If you're a lover of hip hop and / or graphic novels, these are a must!
