The Night Bison Approacheth
POSTER-FINAL-773x1024

This looks like a wild, wild ride.

“The Night Bison will run for the third time on August 31st, leaving the back lot of NCC at Civil Twilight and winding through 55mi of every terrain possible. For us at Axletree, this is a fun one. They’re all fun. They’re all for fun. But this one is different. It has a neat feel to it that separates it from our other events. And they’re pizza. And posters.

This year, we collaborated with the talented and kind Mr. Jake Early of Tucson, AZ. Jake became a faraway friend of NCC and Axletree when he surprised us with a run of prints earlier this year. We threw out the idea of working together to create a run of Jake’s beautiful serigraph prints to promote and celebrate the event. Our napkin art was slid (emailed) across the table (across the country) last month, and he sent us his print design this week.”
