ArtCrank is “a poster party for bike people”. Basically, creative types around Austin design bike-themed posters to sell, and the proceeds go to charity (the LiveStrong Foundation) and the artists (me). I participated for a couple of years, and it was always a fun creative outlet.
Each year I tried something different with printing techniques. The first year I did oversize letterpress (and genetic equine manipulation). Then I mixed it up with metallic inks and then laser-cutting.
The black poster was the grand prize winner of the 2013 Neenah UnShow, so it got a little shout-out in HOW magazine. The white poster was also selected for the UnShow the year before, and the green poster was featured in the 2015 Print Regional Design Annual.
