I wanted to do something to help the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.  I was born and raised in Nashville, TN,  but I have lived in Boston for 25 years, so I grew up here.  I consider myself a southern Northerner and I feel a very strong attachment to both cities.

I worked with Cory at Hatch Show Print to design a poster to sell and raise money for the One Fund.

What is Hatch Show Print?  You might not recognize their name, but you may recognize their unique style.  Hatch is a legendary letterpress design studio in Nashville, TN.

Boston Strong

“If you follow music, art, and culture of the American South, sooner or later you’re bound to run into the letters, images, and unmistakable “look” of Hatch Show Print.  We’re one of the oldest working letterpress print shops in America, and over the years our posters have featured a host of country music performers, ranging from Country Music Hall of Famers Hank Williams, Bill Monroe, and Johnny Cash to contemporary stars such as Garth Brooks and Wynonna, as well as posters for the Grand Ole Opry.

We’ve done it all without losing that irresistible appeal of turn-of-the-century Hatch posters, which were used to promote vaudeville, circus, and minstrel shows across the country.  There’s a reason why music lovers, Americana buffs, graphic arts collectors and designers, and commercial advertisers of all persuasions continue to turn to Hatch for inspiration.  We are, indeed, a tonic for the information age.”

Each print is an original artwork and was individually hand-printed and numbered 1-200.

Dimensions are 12″ wide x 20″ tall.

You can purchase them for $15 each and the net proceeds will go the One Fund.
