Aaron Horkey’s Retrospective Letterpress Series: detailed photos

October 21 2010 . 04:38pm

Dead Arts Publishing is pleased to announce the second installment of Aaron Horkey’s Retrospective Letterpress Series.

Releasing on the 25th of October, Suite 2 of this 6 part series features exact scale reproductions of 3 selected illustrations from Aaron’s body of work to date.

The prints in this suite will be letterpress printed on Somerset Velvet Radiant White 330 gsm fine art paper and masterfully crafted to the highest standards for beautifully precise reproductions.

Included in the second installment of this series are; Cecropia, Megaloceros and The Sentinel.

With Cecropia and Megaloceros previously published as large format serigraph posters for Boris and Cable and The Sentinel serving as the foreground imagery in Aaron’s classic art print ‘Whale Bone Grove’, these new art prints showcase Aaron’s beautiful illustrations as he created them. Absent their event related text treatments and produced in a sharply beautiful black ink letterpress format allows for a wholly new presentation for these images.

In continuation of Aaron’s chess themed works for this series, we’re very excited to introduce a new illustration entitled ‘The Pawn’. This complimentary bonus print is included exclusively with all Suite 2 purchases and represents the second of six installments in this series.

Suite 2 is priced at $280 and will only be offered for four hours on October 25th, from 10am until 2pm Pacific Standard Time. These editions will be limited solely to the orders received during this ordering period and will not be reprinted.

Purchasers of our initial Suite 1 offering of the series will also retain their personal edition numbers to continue their number matched sets. Due to logistical constraints, this service was unfortunately only available with the initial offering.

PLEASE NOTE: As this ordering period will determine the edition size, please allow approximately 6 weeks for production and fulfillment of this pre-sale release.

Additionally, the prints included in Suite 2 are also offered for purchase individually with the exception of The Pawn.
DA008 – Cecropia (Boris Smile):

EYEDEA – Rest in Peace

October 17 2010 . 06:32pm

One of the Twin Cities most beloved musical talents has passed away. Micheal "Eyedea" Larsen, a longtime Rhymesayer, singer, lyricist and fixture in the indie hip-hop scene died early this morning, just a month shy of his 29th birthday.

Friends of Larsen said his mother, Kathy Averill, found him this morning.

"It is with great pain and sadness that I tell you my son Mikey (Eyedea) has passed away," she wrote on his personal Facebook page. "At this time we kindly request your respect and our privacy as we process this devastating loss. On behalf of Mikey’s family, close friends and fans, thank you."

Part of the Rhymesayers crew from its early days and a creative force to be reckoned with behind the mic, Eyedea painted beautiful and often abstract pictures with his lyrics, revealing the raw, serrated edges of emotion. He and his DJ, Abilities (a.k.a. Max Keltgen) were champions of their crafts and best friends since the age of 14.

Eyedea’s mom, with whom he was very close (and who also was like a second mother to Abilities) has set up a
