TWO RABBITS STUDIOS : “Buy Product” Series
Two Rabbits Studios is a design firm, commercial screen print shop, and fine art studio ran by Los Angeles-based artists Mike Thacker and Bob Motown. Since 2007, the pair have designed and printed hundreds of rock posters and promotional pieces for movies and video games. Two Rabbits started small in a North Hollywood backyard—less than five years later, and they’ve been featured in galleries, Flatstock poster shows, and craft fairs in the United States and UK. They’ve worked with Warner Music Group and concert promoters Goldenvoice for artists ranging from Skrillex to Wu Tang to Portishead. Recently, Thacker and Motown’s focus has been on fine art pieces that reflect upon their hand-printed process and design.
“Buy Product” Series:
“Our work lately has been drastically focused on the repurposing of our by-product. Running a commercial print shop, making printed products all day, yields a lot of excess and leftover material, and we don’t like to see anything go to waste. From our test prints to our mixing sticks, we see the chaos and beauty of our artistic endeavors in everything that’s left over. We have taken what many consider to be useless and turned it into beautiful works of color and shape”
