Proud Papa

2012’s ARTCRANK Minneapolis poster “Proud Papa” was inspired by my son Griffin who was born during the design phase. In fact, the sketches were done in the hospital. The first edition sold out and found new homes as far away as Chile, Italy and Australia. Prints have been spotted at the Pearl Isumi headquarters and Single Speed Brewery. Thanks to everyone who shouted “encore” I printed a second edition and a few prints are still available on Etsy.

In 2015 I was asked to print a special edition of Proud Papa for the launch of the online store. I mixed a different custom blue and added in the Minneapolis skyline as seen from the Stone Arch Bridge to celebrate the birthplace of Artcrank.
