Happy America Day

ShopDad at the excellent LBJ Presidential Library.

This Monday we had an amazing opportunity to go down to Austin. No matter what your point of view is, as second generation American, we feel unbelievably fortunate and appreciative to be here and to be able to voice our opinions freely. Later, we had a chance to visit the superb LBJ Presidential Library. We had an especially poignant moment when we walked through exhibit highlighting LBJ's contribution to The Civil Right's Movement. Our Dad pointed specifically to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, without which he would never have been able to immigrate to America in 1967. It was a pretty powerful moment for all of us. Happy Fourth of July.

Don't Mess With Oak Cliff Print


We've been getting a lot of inquiries on how the poster typesetting workshop works. Here's a step-by-step explanation of what we do during this workshop (more examples of our workshops here and here).  Also, want to thank Michael for being such an awesome student. It was super fun to make this print. There's nothing cooler than helping someone create something they've been thinking of.

01. Workshop runs the smoothest when you have an idea of what you want to say on your poster. Once we know that, we can help you pick the best type. Then we go through the process of setting your form and registering your paper. 

02. Next we mix the ink.

03. Using a brayer, we hand ink the form.

04. Then we start printing.

05. and print an edition of 20.

06. Then we let it dry overnight.
