Arsenal Handicraft The Last Days of Summer Print for Artcrank Detroit

This past weekend Artcrank came to Detroit for the first time at the Shinola headquarters and Arsenal Handicraft created a stunning print for the show. The print is called "The Last Days of Summer"  It is a three color screen print on French Banana Split Paper.  It measures 16" x 20", has an edition of 30, and is priced at $50.

The back story to the print is:
When we were younger, a bike symbolized freedom. Especially in Michigan, bike time meant summertime, no school, and late nights. By its very nature, riding a bike is something you must do alone and it’s part of finding your independence.

This boy’s feet took him once again to a familiar window. But the days were getting shorter now. I think she was waiting for him this time, leaning a little further out of her window. School would be starting soon.
The print is available in the Arsenal Handicraft shop here:
