Best Silk Screening - 2011
Iron Forge Press
The silk-screened concert poster lives, and it's a sight to behold. Long after their neighbors in Fort Lauderdale's budding FAT Village arts district have gone to sleep, Chuck Loose and Ian Rowan crank out original designs showcasing South Florida's hottest touring acts (they have an exclusive contract with LiveNation, the country's largest concert promoter). On FAT Village's art walks, you can tour the studio. It smells like ink and vinyl and is bedecked with posters for sale: a perfect and inexpensive way to ease your apartment walls into cultured adulthood. Two years after they nabbed our first Best Silk Screening award, they're still the best little print shop in town.
