John Vogl on his new print St. Louis to Benefit Students in Ferguson:
As some of you know, I live and work in Denver, CO, but, was born and raised in St. Louis, MO, and lived there until just a few years ago. I received my start as a poster artist in St. Louis, from a very supportive and encouraging creative community. I still have family, friends, and loved ones who live there, and proudly call St. Louis home. I'm sure you are familiar with the recent turmoil that has shaken Ferguson, and the Greater St. Louis Area. As a place that is so familiar to me, I have found myself physically uncomfortable and emotionally unsettled hearing of the events happening there. I can read, talk, and share endlessly about it, but, I want to try and do something more-tangible to help.
I did an art print of St. Louis a few years ago, the small edition is long-since gone. I will be re-releasing this 16x20, 2 color screen print, in a timed edition, starting today, for $25. For one week, I will accept orders, and print them immediately after that. All prints will be signed and numbered, with 100% of the profits going to the Ferguson-Florrisant School District, which resumes classes today.
You may purchase the print here, more details about the actual print are in the listing in my store.
