october 2017 - brent schoonover

CHUX COLLAB #10 with one of our all time favorites, Brent Schoonover.

Hailing from the epicenter of culture known as South Beloit, Il, Brent was on a one-way trip to normalcy until the fateful day he laid eyes upon his first comic book. He immediately grabbed hold of a pencil and never let go, dedicating himself to creating scores of characters and scenarios with a zeal that would make lesser men quake in dread. 

Now located in Minnesota, he draws upon a fertile imagination marinated in comics, old cartoons, classic horror movies, pro wrestling and face-melting metal to create distinctive illustrations with a retro feel that run the gamut from comic books to editorial and packaging assignments. So if you have a project that needs a fresh look, give him a call. He has plenty of ink to go around.

NOW AVAILABLE HERE and at both I LIKE YOU locations.

CHUX COLLAB #4 is with our bud Pat Peterson. He is an illustrator, graphic designer and screen printer living and working in Minneapolis, MN.  

CHUX: how long have you been creating illustrations and designing?

PP: I've been drawing ever since I can remember, and love creating art in any way that I can. I've worked with many different clients on a variety of projects, and am constantly challenging myself to approach projects in new and different ways.

CHUX: who are some of your influences?

PP: I feel like my art and style is constantly evolving and ever-changing. I'm influenced greatly by local artists, vintage advertisements and nostalgia and just about everything else. 

CHUX: tell us a little more about yourself.

PP: I'm pretty much a nerd. I'm a huge sports fan, and love cheering on our local teams through the good and bad. (Mostly bad lately.) I'm a huge music and movie fan. I like playing video games when I can, and collect screen printed movie posters.I enjoy spending time with my fiancé Andrea or hanging out with friends at a local restaurant or catching a concert.

CHUX COLLAB #3 is with our good friend Mary Bruno at Bruno Press.  Mary's hard work, humor and dedication to the letterpress are why we love her so much. Whether she is setting inappropriate type for a greeting card or carving linoleum block, she takes great pride in continuing the family business up in St.Joseph, Minnesota. March 2017 #chuxcollab is all about the analog! The plan was to start with a hand carved linoleum illustration to be printed on to film that we used to burn the screen to print this gnarly t-shirt. A collaboration of two great printing techniques. Letterpress meets screen printing. hope you enjoy!

FEBUARY 2017 - nick streine

mike ritter

CHUX COLLAB #2 is with our friend and CHUX designer, Nick Streine.  Nick has been with CHUX for the better part of two years now and has been a great addition to our shop. Given our heavy work flow at chux, it isn't very often that we get to work on projects like this together. The design is inspired by a few of our favorite things: hard work, minnesota outdoors, and metal.  Our goal was to combine a halftone photo with hand drawn type in a simple one color design and so that is what we did.

JANUARY 2017 - adam turman

mike ritter

Our first collaboration is with our good friend Mr. Adam Turman. CHUX has had the opportunity and pleasure of working with Adam on many projects. We are grateful to have him help us kick off 2017 with a brand new illustration. Adam is an absolute pro when it comes to art and business. His ability to visualize, sketch and finalize an image is impressive. It is no wonder we see his art so many places. January's COLLAB illustration is inspired by the Minnesota state seal, this design covers just about every symbol that our great state has to offer.  We hope you like it, ENJOY!
