Andrew Bannecker's Prints Available at Urban Outfitters
Two of Andrew Bannecker's illustrations can now be purchased from Urban Outfitters. "I attach myself to anything nautical, and I wanted to do a piece with a ship in a bottle," said Bannecker of "No Way Out," available online only. "I turned it on its head and created a scene inside the bottle, instead of having the ship sit there."
The "Black Bird" poster is adapted from an artwork he made for a gallery show in L.A: "It was initially about The Beatles and 'Blackbird' was one of my favorite songs, so it evolved from there." Each is inked on archival, acid-free, natural white paper with a matte finish, and hand-trimmed with a one-inch border.
And each is priced at $24. "It's a matter of having a couple of pieces out there that are easily accessible," Bannecker explained. "I used to sell my prints myself; however, I ran out of time to do it, so I closed my shop. I get e-mails all of the time asking for them, so the partnership with Urban Outfitters is a great solution."
He last collaborated with the retailer about five years ago on a selection of canvas prints that sold in the U.S. and the U.K.
