Parallels Collide

Isn't it funny the smallest things in life connect? One occurrence this morning... Friend at work shows me the beautiful book entitled 100 Posters, 134 Squirrels: A Decade of Hot Dogs, Large Mammals, and Independent Rock: The Handcrafted Art of Jay Ryan about the work of screenprinter (and musician) Jay Ryan. His worked looked so familiar so I googled a bunch of images and, low and behold, I already had a Jay Ryan WILCO poster saved in my pictures folder. His work is wonderful... I love the way he handletters everything and the fact that everything comes out of his Chicago printshop The Bird Machine (I love birds!).
