    Screens N Spokes 2010 SNEAK PEAK Part 3


    I hope everyone is enjoying their last summer weekend. Down here in North Carolina I don't think the heat is going anywhere, but sadly classes for us start on Monday. Just a little reminder... Screens 'N' Spokes 2010 Opens Next Saturday, Sept 11 at Mugshots CoffeeHouse! The show is being hung tomorrow evening, and if you'd like an in-person preview by all means check out Mugshots this week. The Opening will be next Saturday, starting at 6:30 PM. We'll have snacks and drinks, and yes lots of prints. If anyone has been to our openings before, you know this is the best time to purchase framed and unframed prints in person. We will primarily be selling 2010 prints, but will also have select prints from previous years with us as well. That said, you still haven't see all the great prints this year, so allow me to offer you preview #3 with 5 more for you, right now!

    1. Last week I showed you one half of Cricket Press' contribution to Screens 'N' Spokes, and today you'll see the other half. Brian Turner has been a long-time contributor to S'N'S, designing prints in '07-'08 as well as designing our jerseys those two years as well. For those of us whose bikes are less transportation and more in-house (or apartment) statues, this one is for us.

    2. A newcomer to Screens 'N' Spokes family, Justin Helton and his Status Serigraph studio has been pumping out fantastic posters for the past 5 years. Recently he's memorialized gigs for bands like Phish, Wilco and the Avett Brothers. In his S'N'S debut, Justin gives us a seriously sweet cruiser.

    3. Columbia, South Carolina's The Half and Half have supported Screens 'N' Spokes from the beginning. Like Cricket Press, they are upping the ante this year with two excellent, and completely different prints. Today I'll preview one of them. Everyone knows riding in the rain is rarely fun, but sometimes you just have to break out your umbrella and keep on moving.

    4. I've got two Collaborations to share today. The first comes from officemates Kevin Mercer of Largemammal and Dan Judge. This print feels like Mercer's style, but with Judge's flair for color, and as Dan told me: "Two bikes for two guys."

    5. Our second collaboration comes from previous S'N'S contributor Mike Munter and his recent partner Jessi Preston. Mike always ties his Screens 'N' Spokes prints to the ride, and has done so again with Ed Roth style caricatures of Philadelphia forefather Ben Franklin and, well... the Devil.

    We've got 5 more prints to go, including a fantastic collaboration from Jay Ryan and Dan McCarthy. That'll be coming at you right after you get back from your Holiday Weekend.

    Screens N Spokes 2010 SNEAK PEAK Part 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.
