Yee-Haw Industries has made my Monday morning – and don’t we all need something to do that?
YHI specializes in original art-like products – from letterpress posters promoting special events, music acts and theatre shows to handmade, woodcut, fine art prints. All of their work is custom-to-order, designed, set, and pressed by hand.
They’ve also managed to feed my obsession with calendars which is never a bad thing in my eyes.

The rough, blocky, mod-ish qualities are what initially struck me about Angie Lewin’s work. I love the textures which seem to almost jump off the page at you, they almost feel tangible.

She also has an interesting blog – All Things Considered – worth checking out.

I, personally, would like to say Thank You, Brady. Thank You very much. Here are just a few of the pieces that caught my eye…
