Keith Maclelland’s work has always been largely steeped in exploring the imagined notions behind the singing cowboys of the 1950’s – the Gene Autry and John Wayne types – who, with their fancily embroidered collard-shirts and leather chaps, could seemingly solve small-town problems from behind their wailing guitars.

Llew Mejia is an artist, illustrator, and maker. If you don’t recognize him by name, you might by his perfectly quirky and folklorish illustrations that we can't get enough of, or by his meticulously intricate designs that decorate the pairs of swim trunks for sale at your local Target store.

Our friends at Lot F Gallery have collaborated with the talented folks at Best Dressed Signs to curate a unique art show featuring the colorful works of sign artists and lettering enthusiasts from around the world.
