Little Friends of Printmaking Lecture Poster

You can spot The Little Friends of Printmaking easily in a crowd–their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway! Their work is just as distinctive. JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves through their silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for anyone who would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they have continued their fine-art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to those inclined to listen. Their awards include honors from the Art Directors’ Club, American Illustration, and Communication Arts; 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.
