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...
Draplin puts it this way-
'Inspired by our undying love for “all things Minnesota.” Man, we love that state. We did a stint there in the rollicking, wild, late ’90s, wrapping a high-falutin’ graphic arts degree at the acclaimed Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Sure, the city had a hold on us, but we were able to get out of town a number of times. To the north, to the south, way out west and up and down that Mississippi River. We know Minnesota.

We are back with a third edition of one of our most popular prints. Autumn 2011 is just about here, so Aaron Draplin came back to pay homage to Minnesota in bright blaze orange hunting colors! Don't let your computer monitor fool you - that orange ink is eyeball-burning, hunter-deflecting fluorescent orange! Maybe our favorite colorway of this bad boy we've done.

My friends invited my wife and I to their son's birthday party at the Firefighters Hall & Museum in Northeast Minneapolis this past weekend. I didn't really know what to expect, but was really impressed with the huge collection of antique engines, equipment, photographs, and especially patches from fire departments all across the globe. Here are some photos of my favorites (after the jump), but make sure to stop by the museum to see them for yourself!
Here's our brand new screenprinted poster for Minneapolis-based electronic soul outfit Poliça. Featuring a blazing hot who's-who lineup of some of our city's most beloved musicians, these guys exploded out the gate, taking not just the city but the entire nation by storm with their airy, dreamlike sounds.
Wes Winship's design captures the floating feeling of the group's music, perfect for a warm Summer night. This poster was released at Poliça's August 2012 concert outside The Cabooze where they performed alongside Supreme Cuts and Zoo Animal.
