Wishing you the Best & Brightest to you & yours this holiday season.
If you love your bike and you love your love, and you both love bicycles? Well, this is the print for you!
“Thinking Of You” is our 2011 contribution to the amazing Screens’n’Spokes (aka S’n’S) MS 150 Team and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of their efforts and art shows again this year to help raise awareness and money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. In just 5 years, the Screens’n’Spokes Team has raised over $200,000 to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society through enlisting top printmaking artists to create new art prints for sale through the S’n’S annual art show and their Etsy Shop.
Once again this year S’n’S will be organizing a month long art show in Philadelphia with hand printed art work from over 15 Gig Poster artists. Mugshots CoffeeHouse on Fairmount has graciously hosted S’n’S for all five seasons.
Check below for more details about the incredible Screens’n’Spokes team, their fundraising, the S’n’S show and the artists involved:
“Thinking of You” is our 3-color, all hand silkscreen printed art print, carefully printed one layer at a time, with soft cloud grey, bright love red, and black hand-mixed and non-toxic water based silkscreen inks.

This is a limited edition print, so once it’s gone, it’s gone baby!
Below are some photos of the hand silkscreen printing process, and feel free to hop on over to our Flickr page where tons more process photos live!
I woke up to a happy surprise today, the fantastic blog ohdeedoh wrote a really lovely piece on our prints! ohdeedoh is the perfect intersection of home & kid-friendly design, which is a really cool niche, as it insists on being very livable rather than high-concept focus. I love that. We’re just tickled that author Sarah Rae Trover at ohdeedoh found our work and wrote such a fresh post about us. With the hand silkscreen printing process being so labor intensive (a “simple” 3-color print, edition of 100 takes 6-10 hours to complete), I can’t tell you how refreshing and awesome it is to see that a great blog like ohdeedoh gets it. Thank you so much!
Here is a little snippet for you:
“When it comes to artwork for children’s rooms it can be rare to find actual screen printed pieces that most parents would consider affordable. These 10 items all come in under $25 and are all handmade, layer by layer and color by color.”

Spring is finally here! And to match the growing warmth and springy feel, here is a new silkscreen art print release! Going To See My Baby Yellow, a brand new colorway of my super popular art print about bicycles, love and that special glee. You know the feeling.
This hand-pulled & hand screenprinted happy day is a brand new colorway of a very popular print that I did in 2007, but in a super small edition for the Screens’n’Spokes fundraiser, now returned in fresh spring lemony yellow and soft sky-blue, just for you.
Going To See My Baby Yellow is my 6-color, all hand screen printed art print with fresh lemon yellow, bright bike red, dark grey, black and soft transparent sky-baby-blue hand-mixed and non-toxic water based silkscreen inks. And yes! The sky-baby-blue cloud breaks the margin/border just like a good cloud should, and it’s partially transparent over the white margin. Tweet! Edition of 200. Size: 16 x22 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: no acid, archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight.
Some of the previous colorways like Baby Blue, Orange, Lavender, and Sage are now all sold out, enabling us to donate to a cause we really have close to our hearts, The National MS Society. And, a portion of the sale of each of these prints is donated to The National MS Society as well .
Hey smartie-sweetie-cuties, what’s up?
Here is a “new” poster release! I say “new” in “quotes” as the show date was from way back in November of 2010 (that’s like a lifetime ago!), but I didn’t receive my copies of the poster until just a few weeks ago, and somehow posting this little baby up slipped from my to-do list. Apologies!
Onward & upward: We were commissioned by the legendary Fillmore in San Francisco to do a special show poster for Ingrid Michaelson’s show there on 11/1/10 with The Guggenheim Grotto. In the classic Fillmore tradition, they print and give 1,000 copies of the posters created for their shows away at the end of the night to the fans as a big thanks. And this is that poster for Ingrid Michaelson’s show.
More about this poster:
The Fillmore hosted the multi-talented musician, signer / songwriter Ingrid Michaelson, and as their tradition, which dates back to the 1960s, they handed out copies of this poster to the audience at the end of the show. We’re so proud to be a part of this incredible legacy and are tickled to do this poster for The Fillmore & Ingrid Michaelson.
This poster is an offset print, not screenprinted, it was printed by The Fillmore for the show. It’s a 3-color, design with an edition of 1,000. Of that 1,000 given to the fans at the show and to the bands’ members. Artists’ Edition of just 75 posters, each one hand signed & numbered by me, strawberryluna. Size: 13w x 19h inches (33 cm x 48.3 cm). Paper: thick and heavy white stock.
This poster was given away at the show in San Francisco and I have just a portion of the run available (less than 70!) for sale here, so they will go quick!
