I know I’ve been posting a lot of Ballet Under the Stars stuff…but it is the 25th Anniversary of this special event and this year they will have a limited run of these wooden ornaments and pendants…made by us based on the dancer in the 2013 poster.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, Ballet Under the Stars is one of Central Kentucky’s most anticipated events of the summer. This unique festival allows audiences to enjoy the beauty and grandeur of a professional ballet in a relaxed, casual setting of the park. 
Ornaments are limited to 100, pendants are limited to 50…both made from either maple and cherry.

Here is the poster we designed & screenprinted for…
Dream the Electric Sleep 
As they travel to Loreley Germany for Night of the Prog!
This was a fun poster to print as the purple and black has silver ink mixed into them and the yellow has gold ink…making the entire print shine. A subtle detail you can’t appreciate digitally.

We’ve been away for a little while. Took a beach break with family and then friends…full of sand, sun, laughter, and lots & lots of beer.

As nice as the chill time was…we are so happy to be back in action!

And this week we’ll start posting some of the projects we finished up before the summer break.

Yay! We’re back!
