Rock Poster Artist, now back from Chicago to bring the art to the Funk Zone!
Today on the show we have poster artist and screenprinter Alana Bailey. Back in February I went to a show at Studio 111 here in the Funk Zone and that’s when I first saw Alana’s work, over 90 rock posters, all screen printed, limited editions. As I say in the interview, seeing these all came from her time in Chicago, it really made me realize how in need of a poster culture is Santa Barbara. And that turns out what Alana Bailey is back in town to do.
This is early days yet, but we have so many talented artists here, that we could conceivably to do that. And it’s not just up to Alana, it’s up to us out there to get this thing going. What’s the worst that can happen? Rock posters, man!
In this interview we talk about her work, her life in Chicago, what makes a poster culture, her life, her family, and her hopes for our town.
You can find a little bit of her work at alanabaileybrand.bigcartel.com.
I mention a Periscope broadcast in the interview, but the original link is dead. But I saved it to YouTube.
