– PPG #32 – Dan Murphy. You won’t find much of a personal internet presence from Dan. Most of the news about his many endeavors are generated thru 2 steadfast pillars of the art community – ICY Signs and MEGAWORDS magazine. We can’t express enuff how happy we are to finally have a print from Dan, his work speaks for itself, loud & explosive, subtle & simple, wild and untamed. Another local named Steve Gunn, is longtime olde friends with Dan Murphy, so pairing these 2 Philadelphia artists together with this great 4 color screenprint, synched up perfectly. Hoist one into yer shopping cart, or grip one at the gig. Either way, when you support PPG, you are supporting local artists & musicians. Get to the show early and catch Spacin’ & Nap Eyes.

“I don’t like to speak badly of people. I have grown up thinking and being told that if you cannot say something nice about someone, you shouldn’t say anything at all. But I must break that rule because I hate Hulk Hogan very much. He is a big ugly goon and I want to squash his face.” – Andre The Giant

-PPG #25 — Jim Vail, also known as – FNU Clone, slayed this wild Watery Love poster much to their liking…This particular print is great for many reasons, least of which is the known fact that this is PPG #25, a good solid number to take us into a summer hiatus. Furthermore, this is the record release for Locals beyond Local band
Watery Love‘s “Decorative Feeding” LP on the stalwart label – In The Red Records…and some re-released 7″‘s on another Philadelphia Local Locale Richie Records//Testostertunes. At the top of that list of reasons is Jim Vail, Jim is one of the most formidable Collage-ers in the lower 48, as well as a wicked painter, illustrator, and musician… responsible for the Philly by way of San Francisco – FNU Ronnies. Shimmy down to PhilaMOCA and grip one of these badboys for cheap! We got 1, maybe 2 of these savage Blacklight prints available, 1st come, 1st served. Stick around before-hand and enjoy Montanans – Mordecai, & Philly-heads – Igneous Eyes.

– PPG #23 – We tried a few times to get a poster done for this radical Philadelphia band… and you know us, we are local, and we like to support our local bands. After a few setbacks, and the clock running out of time, our grunt worker Rodger Binyone struck a thought, and then a sketch which turned into this poster. All funds received from this print will go to the PPG coffers to help support future projects and prints. drop over to Union Transfer, grip a copy of The War On Drugs new LP, and take home a (4) color, 18″ x 24″ screenprint.
