Winter Guide Illustration for The Pittsburgh City Paper

Happy Winter Pittsburgh!

We’re really excited about our first illustration gig for The Pittsburgh City Paper, and doubly stoked that it’s the cover illustration for the 2013 Winter Guide.

Our chilly, sled loving bird in the ChillyBurgh is an olde timey Steeler fan as he graces the cover. The issue came out Wednesday, January 15th and will be around for one week around the city. And there’s even a digital edition here too.

Covering arts, music, theater, dance, excercise and cool things to do all around the city the Winter Guide is loaded with information about the things that make Pittsburgh so darn awesome. Don’t miss the much anticipated Pittsburgh City Paper Winter Guide!

2 New Art Print Releases: Be Kind Always

“Be Kind Always”, Introducing 2 new art prints in 2 fresh colorways!
“Be Kind Always”, so nice, we designed it twice. Both versions of “Be Kind Always” are sized at 12×12 inches, aka Record / LP frame size and are open edition, Indigo art prints in bright sky blue and lime green.
What we can say? Could be Allison’s Quaker school education showing, we just think life should be that simple. As humans, we might not always get there every day, but we believe one should always try. And here’s a friendly little cheerleader to remind you.
We decided to experiment with this design, and these two new art prints are Indigo prints, rather than silkscreens. Following a bolder and brighter illustration route than we could with screen printing we’re exploring a more modern printing technique by utilizing the Indigo press format. After all, screen printing is a lovely and ancient tradition, but we love having a foot in both the historic past and the ever-changing future at the same time whenever possible. With incredible detail & vibrant colors and archival inks and archival, eco-certified 100lb cover paper (see details below) we think you’ll love this addition too.
Both colorways of “Be Kind Always” are now available in our webshop here and also in our Etsy Shop here $18 each.
Specially designed and sized to slip right into an ubiquitous and inexpensive frame. Square never looked so hip.
  • Edition: Open. Each print is hand signed and titled.
  • Size: Paper size – 12 x12 inches (30.5cm x 30.5 cm.) Image Size – 10×10 to allow plenty of room for a matte, if desired.
