This video was created as a part of my senior capstone project for my BFA in Communication Design at Harrington College of Design. The project focuses on the amazing, vibrant and tight-knit screenprinting community in Chicago. Ideally this will be the first of many interviews and profiles of printmakers in Chicago.
This interview is with Steve Walters of Screwball Press. Steve is largely responsible for the growth of the screenprinting and gig-poster community in Chicago. To find more information on Steve visit http://screwballpress.com/
