We continue our BRLSQ Spotlight Series with a feature on artist Brandon Holt. On Tuesday, May 21, we will release Welcome to Hell, a limited edition art print designed by Brandon and screenprinted right here by Ben LaFond. When we first saw his artwork, we were instantly blown away and worked out plans to produce an art print with him. Here's a look inside the mind and world of the one and only Brandon Holt...

You may remember a year ago when this happened... a loyal Minnesotan had Peter Bekke's awesome Minnesota Pride print / shirt design expertly recreated as a tattoo. Well... this just happened.

If you were here at CO Exhibitions for Cinco De Mayhem this past Saturday, you know what an incredible night it was. From the completely over-the-top piñata designs to the elation of the crowd all night long to the tissue paper and glitter-splattered aftermath, this was definitely one for the history books.
And if all that wasn't good enough, here's a little bonus: Thanks to everyone who paid to swing at the piñatas, we raised about $300 which we will be donating to Second Harvest Heartland! Thank you Twin Cities! For those of you who missed it, we will now attempt to recreate the magic through photos and video, captured by our awesome gallery attendees.

While I was in Cambodia this past March, I became fascinated with the Khmer alphabet and the signs featuring those letters (See my earlier post about the signs and visuals I found in Cambodia and Laos). While shopping in Phnom Penh, I found a great book entitled Hand-Painted Signs of Kratie filled with photographs of signs found in Kratie, a small, rural city in Central Cambodia. Check out a few pics from the book and then order a copy! It makes a great companion to the popular Faythe Levine & Sam Macon Sign Painters book released last year.
We proudly present the latest in an ongoing series of sticker packs from the one and only Todd Bratrud. If you love skateboards, boobs, ninjas, laughing, blood, hatred, Smurfs, and Smurf boobs, there's really no way you'll be able to say no to this one.
The last two packs didn't stay on our shelves for very long, so don't miss this one!
