We wanted to create a print that reminded us of riding bikes when we were kids. The bikes gave us freedom on long summer days. Summer never seemed to last very long, so we wanted to make the most of it.
Arsenal Handicraft is a husband and wife illustration / screen printing studio based in Madison Heights, Michigan. We design and hand screen print everything out of our home studio.
We actually came up with this print concept while we riding our bikes around our neighborhood.
We've been trying to push ourselves to increase the amount of detail in a print while decreasing the number of ink colors we used. This print is two ink colors on blue paper. The blue paper itself functions as a third color.
People seem surprised when they find out that we're self-taught screen printers / artists.
