Chromeo and Cut Copy at Red Rocks!

Funk travelers, take note! Chromeo and Cut Copy took over the historic Red Rocks Amphitheater on August 5th, 2014, and we designed the poster. BOOM. Taking cues from West Coast psych legends like Rick Griffin and Randy Tuten, Mike Davis and Wes Winship went all the way in with this brand new design. All of the prints at the concert sold out and we are releasing our own edition in our online store on Tuesday August 12th!

Make Your Own Cuckoo Clock art print
Artist: Mike Davis

Here's a blast from the past. This cuckoo clock art print was designed by Mike Davis and screenprinted in our studio way back in 2009. The poster can be enjoyed as-is, or cut up and configured into the form of a cuckoo clock. We liked it, but there wasn't something quite right about it. After keeping it on the back burner for five years, we finally moved it back onto the presses to add some final touches, mainly in the "structural integrity" department.

Well, it works perfectly now and you can make this print your very own right now!

Fond Memories of 2013

That was a pretty cool year. Here are some of my favorite things that happened, in and outside of Burlesque. Thanks to all of my family, friends, and teammates who helped make 2013 worth writing about on our blog.

BRLSQ for Doomtree Blowout 9

It's that time of year again... Minneapolis' own Doomtree crew is taking over the city for the ninth year straight with sold out shows at Triple Rock Social Club and First Avenue's mainroom. We were asked to design and screenprint a poster to commemorate the festivities and here she is... one creature face for each year, designed by Mike Davis and screenprinted in super bright colors on French Pop-Tone Hot Fudge paper by Ben LaFond. Grab one at any of the remaining First Avenue Blowout 9 shows or in our online store in early January 2014!

Here are a few rough sketches from the creative process...

From the Cutting Room Floor: Burlesque for Target

Earlier this Summer, I designed five graphics to help Target count down the final days of Summer. Unfortunately, although the art was approved, the powers that be didn't end up fitting these into their daily Tumblr schedule and they got shelved. The good news is that I'm now allowed to share them with everyone right here on our blog! As things are starting to get chilly around Minnesota, we don't mind taking a quick glance back at Summer. Enjoy!
