Jay Ryan is an artist that draws and prints daily. He opened the Bird Machine print shop back in 1999, and after falling in with the right crowd, the business took off. Jay has built a stellar reputation for his hand-drawn text and computer-free design processes. His gig posters have the same intentions as others, but he utilizes images such as toasters and raccoons rather than breasts, skulls, or fast cars. In other words, Jay's works can be more family-friendly for households with children. Also, they often prove to be more appropriate for a person to hang in their office. Besides drawing and printing, Mr. Ryan regularly travels to universities and conferences showing off and speaking about his work. Those interested in purchasing one of his gig posters should read further to learn about a couple of available ones.
This is a first edition signed and number poster out of 300 printed. It is 18×24-inches, which means you or your guests will be able to see it easily. The gig posters were created to promote Pelican's 2009 performance at the Empty Bottle in Chicago, Illinois. This particular unit features a purple and black raccoon holding bluish-green pom-poms. Additionally, there are brightly colored lightning bolts protruding from behind the animal. The vivid shades are ideal for brightening up a dull, lifeless room.
2. Jeff Tweedy
This limited edition screen printed poster is also signed and numbered. However, there were only 230 created for Jeff Tweedy's A Benefit For Letters To Santa concert, which took place at the S&S Hotel in 2010. The unit is 18×24-inches in size too, so once again, it is easy to view from different distances. A singer holding a guitar is at the front and center of the banner. There is an unusual element though. He has tons of yellow, red, and brown leaves falling upon his head. It is a great choice to be hung in a home or office.
