Office happenings / Exclusive new Horkey print sneak peek!
What the heck's going on around our office today? I'm wrapping up the poster and t-shirt design for Rock the Garden, an outdoor concert in the Walker Art Center's sculpture garden featuring The Decemberists, Yeasayer, Calexico, and local do-gooders Solid Gold. Wes is eating Big League Chew. Mike Cina strolled down the hall to say hello. The pizza place down the street doesn't like delivering to our building, so we started tipping the drivers with Dre Day sticker packs to make it more appealing. Whenever Cina calls to order pizza, they ask "Are you with Burlesque?" so he just tells them "Yes." Welcome to the team. Hey, here's the new Gig Posters book!!! Come celebrate the release with us this weekend! WHERE: Magers & Quinn Booksellers (3038 Hennepin Ave S, Uptown Minneapolis) WHEN: Sunday June 14, 6-9pm WHAT: Pick up a copy of the new book as well as posters and other goodies from Burlesque, Amy Jo, Aesthetic Apparatus, and more! WUT? It's free, stoopid! ALSO: Check out this great writeup of the book and feature on Minneapolis' uneffwitable community of screenprinted poster artists. - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + AAAAAAAAND NOOOOOOW! Are you ready to see an EXCLUSIVE sneak peek at a new Aaron Horkey art print? Are ya? Wes is working on the color separations for this beast and assembled this half sketch / half color mockup to share on our blog. Aaron originally created this artwork for an awesome collaborative 7" between Jesu and our dear friends Fog. Part of Hidden Hive's Kissing Kin split vinyl series, the two artists started working on songs, then passed them off for the other to finish. Check out the site for more info on the record and note that Fog's contribution will be released under a different artist name for this project. - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + HEY!
