Our February shirt is kind of special. It was designed by our amazing screen printer Dan Padavich. He owns Vahalla Studios in Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District. It’s an amazing shop that primarily specializes in posters, letterpress and other types of old-school printing craft. They’re the ones who’ve been hand screening our prints every month for the last ~2 years.
Graduated 2004 from the University of Kansas. Visual Communications Bachelor degree, emphasis in Graphic Design and Printmaking. Bringing years of experience as a printmaker and designer, Padavic has printed work for just about every band and musician you could care to mention. Dan prints work daily for artist such as Hydro74, Frank Chimero, Meg Hunt, Blake E. Marquis & A. Micah Smith, of course his own work and all that they do together with pal Tad Carpenter under the Vahalla Studios name. Dan’s continual attention to detail as a printer is evident in his designs that show strong examples of typography mixed with unexpected compositions.
Check out Dan’s site (especially the poster section!) if you want to see some amazing modern art.
All that aside, this month’s shirt is called “Eye Drops” and it’s another one of our design’s that I can’t wait to wear.
