The Weekenders!

This is a limited edition screen print of “The Weekenders,” taken from UK artist Pete McKee’s latest exhibition “Great Moments in Popular Music.” I just love the Northern Soulie aspect to this scene, all the red and white and the little heart on the girl’s helmet … (clearing throat) which makes it perfect as a gift for Valentine’s Day. These special prints are individually hand printed, and finished by the artist. Each is also signed and numbered. There will only be 75 copies made and the prints measure 60 cm x 60 cm. Cost? £345.00

This Week’s Rare Bit O’Swag:
Los Vesparados Die Cut Scooter Card

This letterpress printed scooter pop-up was used to promote “Los Vesparados” – a scooter themed art show in Minneapolis circa 2009. By folding it together, you could have your very own paper scooter to ride around on your desk. Must have cost a fortune to do but oh was it worth it.

The art work and design was created by illustrator/photographer/designer Sean Tubridy:

Here’s one more thing to covet. The poster for the event:

“25 Scooter Drawings”

Christine Berrie is a Scottish artist and illustrator and has a real knack for detailed drawings fetishizing technology. In this print she captured the vast assortment of vintage Vespas, Lambrettas and other motorized bikes (25 to be exact) she sees on the streets of London.

This print comes in two sizes. 14″ X 11″ at $50 in an limited quantity of 500 and in 20″ X 16″ at $200 in an edition of 50 prints.

“Scoot On” Posters

So just how would you gift wrap a scooter?

I can’t help but think the guy looks more impressed with his package than does the lady. But maybe that’s just my overactive imagination. You can buy this print from the “Vintage Magazine Company” on And if you search under “Lambretta Art Print” or “Vespa Art Print” in Amazon you can see all of the different scooter prints they offer. It looks like the size of the advertising will be slightly larger than when it was published. For example this magazine cover is 11 x 14″ and printed on thick art card. I am curious about the quality so if any of you order from this company, let us know how it comes out.
