Flatstock enthusiasts may have noticed a new booth at this year's event, an up-and-coming local named Mike Klay (www.powerslidedesign.com) whose spacious, vector-drawn poster designs manage to stay gritty and humane with textures and rough patterns. On this particularly lovely oversized screen print for Neumo's, Mike explains, "DJ Krush has two sides to his music—the abstract rough hiphop beats and the gorgeous Japanese-inspired instrumentals. I decided to take the latter approach to the poster. A koi pond instantly came to mind." Swing by Bazr Gallery before September 30 to see a collection of his recent show prints, and maybe even add one to your collection. Mike Klay is someone to keep an eye on.
