My friend Chris Bilheimer has an upcoming retrospective show of his design work from the last 20 years. That's a tremendous amount of art ranging from CD covers to posters, shirts and promo pieces for bands like R.E.M., Green Day, Widespread Panic and many, many others. Chris has received many accolades from the music industry for his cutting edge designs. His show is sure to be a visual feast for the eyes!
I have printed quite a few of his posters in the studio. In fact, the first job we printed at Drowning Creek was a Mr. Show poster for HBO that Chris sent our way when we were in desperate need of cash as a struggling print shop. I will be forever thankful for his kindness and support of the studio throughout the years. I am proud to be able to print his commemorative posters for the upcoming show. They will be sold and auctioned to benefit Nuci's Space. Some will be signed by the bands.
To make it even more fun, He has planned another concurrent show with Lance Bangs and Dan Donahue. They will both be showing a collection of their work from the last 15 years.
