Screens 'N' Spokes 2010 Print Preview - No. 2

We're back with the second installment of previews from our 2010 Screens 'N' Spokes show. Today I've got 5 totally new prints to share with you including a crazy collaboration between old Philly favorites Tim Gough and Greg Pizzoli.

1. John Vogl, the crafty and creative mind behind The Bungaloo joins Screens 'N' Spokes for the second straight year. Fresh off a turn on the Tiny Showcase, John has given us what looks to me like the yeti as a commuter biker. I love the little birdie on his shoulder.

2. Dan Khulken and Nathan Goldman, aka DKNG Studios, collaborate daily on everything from websites and packaging to incredible gig posters. In fact, they've been the resident poster artists at the world famous Troubadour in Hollywood, CA since 2007. For Screens 'N' Spokes, they've interpreted the City and the Shore of our Bike MS ride as a crisply rendered road bike and cruiser.

3. Cricket Press has designed awesome prints for Screens 'N' Spokes in the past, but we've always worked with Brian. This year, Brian and his creative partner/wife Sara both decided to get into the fun. Today I'm showcasing Sara's really beautiful print. The light from the fort really feels like it's glowing, leaving you to create the story of what's going on inside. It has youthful fun written all over it.

4. Adam Turman has been crafting his illustration skills through screen-printed gig posters since at least 2003. His two favorite subjects? Bikes and beautiful women, so he was a natural fit for Screens 'N' Spokes. For his first S'N'S print, he combined the two subject matters in a print that could easily commemorate the MS Society's other major bike ride: the PA Dutch ride.

5. Back in 2007, Greg Pizzoli and Tim Gough met for the first time at our inaugural opening. They had both been printing in Philadelphia and had exchanged admiring emails, but hadn't yet met in person. Fast forward four years and they're opening a joint show in mid-September. When we announced that we were interested in collaborative prints this year, they were a natural fit. Their 2010 Screens 'N' Spokes print is a completely hand-rendered wonderland.

I hope you've enjoyed the previews thus far. We still have 10 more prints to unveil before our Opening Night on Saturday, Sept. 11 at Mugshots CoffeeHouse.
