Revenge by The Little Friends of Printmaking

July 1, 2011 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Free

You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd – their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their artwork is just as distinctive. Husband-and-wife team JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves by designing and printing silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whomever would pay them money.

In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, these art-school refugees continue their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies throughout North America, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen. Their awards include honors from the Art Directors’ Club, American Illustration, and Communication Arts.

Also, their work has been published in the books New Masters of Poster Design [Rockport], Juxtapoz: Poster Art [Gingko Press], and Handmade Nation [Princeton Architectural Press], among others. The Little Friends currently live in Milwaukee, WI with two very round cats.
