Gadzooks! A really smart fellow we know just alerted us to this project.
Luckily this informative post did not take as long to make.
You can buy the unhand made version
and of course if you have a a little more jingle in your jangle you can get the real deal from the printer himself!
What a beaut - I wish I didn't have to eat next month!

Someone asked me what's all this "As Seen on Nashville on TV" nonsense about the other day.
Well really they said, "Hey that's great why are you doing it?"
And I said, "Isn't it obvious?" And we both laughed!
But actually I think I gave a really long winded answer about public art and perception of self and ownership of ideas. And then I really went on a long time about what it means to be aware of a moment happening in the moment. And what that does to the moment.
And then I started talking about all the attention our city is getting and how it is changing so quickly and that we have to treasure the parts that make us unique and special as a people.
It is pretty fun to see your city in a semi made up way on tv. Since I didn't make the story up - it seems sort of like a dream I might have of a familiar land that isn't quite how I remember it. Though instead of Hayden Panettiere in it - it would be my Mom or someone I haven't seen in a long time since high school.
But I digress...
As seen on Nashville!!!!
We made these prints so that they could be used!
Today we stopped by a few places here in Nashville that have actually been seen on Nashville the show to give them they're real prize of fame!
It felt good to bestow our print that commemorated the event upon the people that are Nashvillians. It really makes the whole experience complete in my mind.
Reality to fiction to film to post production to the airwaves to my mind's reality back to shared physical reality again! When folks started making prints to convey ideas across space and time this all would have seemed like pure fantasy to them!
And now we bring it back into this other intra-space that we all time travel on together
What a crazy world!!!!
I'm happy it is still turning
And I'm glad we have something to smile about as a group
Let us know ...if you know of a place that has been seen on Nashville and we'll try to get over there to properly celebrate.
And of course don't hesitate to pick up your own copy! These projects are funded directly through your support.
Power to the people!

We are attempting to catch the digital lifestyle of electro sports monthly up with the real clock on the wall of life - hope you enjoy our trip down near memory lane.....
This print was commissioned as an original piece of art for the world premier of "HIlos" by the Latin grammy winner and Guggenhiem Fellow Gabriela Lena Frank.
Performed for the first time by Alias, the acclaimed chamber music ensemble from Nashville, Friday Oct. 1, 2010 to general acclaim and then released as a recording you can also hear via cd. What a night!
We were very excited to be involved in creating the visual representation of the music. It was a pleasure and as such I hope the art work shows that joy. This is just the sort of meeting of the minds I feel is very important to the arts and culture in general. Many thanks to Jennifer Lena and Jonathan Neufeld for making it happen.
When viewed together these prints form one of the larger pieces we have done as a multiple series to date. I like them separately as well.

Hello friends – Did you know that today the 7 billionth overly-designed word poster was posted on Etsy and then linked on pinterest?
Even though some of us can barely use the computer here at Isle of Printing – almost every night as we creep into bed - the image of today’s litter of “stay calm and do what your mama told you when you were little” spill uselessly out of our eyes and onto our pillows like little tiny typographic tears…..
Nay – It isn’t that we dislike language, type, or your friend’s designs…
We LOVE letters - and all the things they help us do. We LOVE printing and we LOVE posters.
We especially love that many fine people out there will support the folks that get up every afternoon and knock out a few prints for the fine citizens of the world-wide-craft market to enjoy.
Yes it was a nice ride and we all enjoyed the scenery – and we have lots of posters to remind us how and what we were doing or not doing or thinking about doing – in all sorts of typefaces and printing methods and from every corner of creation.
And now I can say that I don’t know about you but I am ready for my prints to quit telling me what to think all the dang time on really nice paper.
If you seek the honest and are sick of precious buy a poster and tell the world in a slightly snarky way! Fill that hole in the wall of your heart with our love. WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!
Poster measures 9"x12"
