I have quite a few cycling jerseys and the ones I like best are the all-over patterns. They don't show dirt and they are striking from a distance. For my concept, I was inspired by the idea of Scottish Clans; which is kinda how it feels to be a biker, part of a prideful community ... a family, really. So I created a "plaid" made out of bike chains. Park punk rock/part braveheart. In girls and boys colors. Available now at grouchosports.com.

I've been a uber fan of Artcrank for awhile, so I was totally stoked when I was asked to create the graphics for this year's show. Art and bikes have a wonderful relationship as many bike riders see not only their machine but their commute as a work of art. So I incorporated Minneapolis' most iconic work of art into the design. So ... to art & biking, cheers!

When I think of politics I think of yelling, conflict, dissent. But when we take a step back, we realize we are all connected and almost dependent on each other. I created this poster for the upcoming Poster Offensive–October 29 at the Frank Stone Gallery. Come out and show your love. www.posteroffensive.com

Ooh it's that time of year again. Time to get the two wheeler out and head to Artcrank! This year Shelter Studios (2112 Broadway in Northeast) is hosting this wonderful event. It's April 10, and I am so excited because some of my favorite artists are making work this year.
This year I wanted to illustrate my wonderful biking city of Minneapolis and all the beauty that can be found on one ride; lakes, animals, trees, neighborhoods, rivers and even friends. It's a four color hand screened print on recycled paper. See you there?

My favorite toy growing up (besides the Sit-n-Spin) was the Fisher Price Little People. Their constant smiles let me know that, in whatever situation they were placed, they were having fun. Be it in a sandbox, the bathtub or under the couch cushions.
This year I have the wonderful opportunity to participate in the Toys in the Attic show at the Soo Visual Arts Center. The show opens the evening of December 4th and will showcase prints from local artists ($30) and custom toys from national artists (silant auction). All of the toys and door donations, plus 25% of print and toy sales, go to Toys for Tots.

This summer I had the opportunity to take a road trip through the great plains, stopping in small towns along the way to camp and explore. Many towns we went through were reservation towns and for-sale were these amazing star quilts made by Sioux women. I was struck by their graphic quality and how much they reminded me of Nordic patterns. These are my interpretations of the traditional design.

Starting July 1 Winterborn will have a new home. After 2 wonderful years in Northeast at Microbrew Artist Coop, I have decided to move the studio to Highpoint Center for Printmaking. They have a beautiful new facility that has everything an aspiring printmaker could ever want. Look for some new work in August.
