Screens 'N' Spokes: Lars Krause

Lars Krause - Dresden, Germany

With the 4th of July in our rear view mirror we're now looking at 8 weeks before the opening of Screens 'N' Spokes. The creative juices are flowing, screens are being burned and the flatstock is being printed. We've begun to receive prints and we've seen previews of others, which means it's time for you guys to see them as well. Every week leading up to the opening we'll be previewing 3-4 prints on the blog, one per day. The mailing list will get to see them all first at the beginning of the week.

Our first print comes by way of Germany via Chicago, and I think it's a great introduction to the 2008 series. Lars has been producing amazing work for bands like Queens of the Stone Age, Rage Against the Machine and Band of Horses, but since he works in Germany I don't think his art has gotten the same attention as his American colleagues. The global riders are a great way to announce Screens 'N' Spokes' international contingent in 2008 and I love the hand-drawn text. These were printed in the good ol' USA by screen printer extraordinaire Steve Walters at Screwball Press in Chicago.
