I got asked to participate in the St. Louis AIGA chapter's 20th anniversary art show that is going on this Thursday. The idea of the show was to have 20 local artists design and make 20 of something, and I made this delicious screenprint featuring the famous St. Louis Slinger.
I had been wanting to continue my gross food series for a while, as well as my St. Louis icon series, so this idea pretty much came up with itself. I like the 'designer-ly' aspect of the Slinger's construction, and any good excuse to draw an exploded-style diagram. Plus I love to eat a Slinger. Here was my sketch:
They're big -- 20" x 28" -- 3-color prints (brown, white, yellow) on heavy burnt-orange Fabriano paper. The original edition of 20 will be given out Thursday at the free and open-to-the-public show, and could be yours! Maybe I'll see you there?! We'll hit Tiffany's or the Courtesy afterwards. (I'll probably have more prints for sale later. Perfect for any greasy spoon or classy kitchen.)
