About this Poster

If being a cyclist has to take a back seat to anything for me, it’s being a foodie. And you’d be hard pressed to find a better candidate for a Minneapolis food bike than a Jucy Lucy. I thought it would be fun to give the cheesy champion a human counterpart, and wanted her to embody the same balance of sense sultry and off-the-cuff-ness.

Meet JC Lovely

Minneapolis, Minnesota USA

I've always been drawn to posters and screen printing as my perfect intersection of art and design. I like to focus on the ideas behind my posters, and let the concept drive the style and spirit of the work. I love experimenting with new styles and techniques, challenging myself to step out of my comfort zone, and getting my hands dirty.

Back Story

Thought, Pencil, Paper

Every poster I design starts with the basics: A thought, a pencil, and a sheet of paper. I wanted the poster to embody the spirit of a retro pin-up, but have a modernized design twist to it. The end design would up being a duo of mash-ups, with the retro / modern theme, and the two different art styles of graphic / illustrated.

Retro With A Subversive Twist

The original concept for the poster almost didn't even have the "Lucy" part at all, and was just focused on the Jucy Lucy food bike. I really felt it needed that human element to complete it, and that opened the doors to explore what I envisioned as the human embodiment of the iconic food. Old fashioned and retro, but with a subversive twist and a penchant for fun... That's Jucy Lucy.

Take Another Look

I tend to like things big and bold, and I love to sneak in little details wherever I can. It brings me joy when people can revisit my poster a second time and notice something in there that they didn't see at first.
