LUCKY HAND PRESS? EH?
Lucky Hand is a scrappy one-woman studio & printing press in College Park, Georgia. I focus on original illustrations that become fine art prints, home goods, and stationery. Sometimes they become tattoos or editorial illustration. Everything is handmade the hard way using both modern and time-honored techniques, from start to finish.
Lucky Hand is also a way of life. It's brazen. It's resourceful. It's creative. It's about diving in with your fingers crossed on one hand, and your middle finger up on the other. Lucky Hand is for the dreamers who want to do more, and the doers who want to dream more. It's rugged and refined; it's about heirloom-quality art and goods that you toss around and love for fifty-odd years before bequeathing to your kids. It's about saying "yes" to your intuition, then arm-wrestling the devil in the details to make life work for you, and work well.
Lucky Hand Press goods are crafted from ethically-traded materials. Raw elements are sourced from family-owned businesses and Southern artisans whenever available. Occasionally, we collaborate with the brilliant local textile printers at Danger Press for our fabric needs.
I'm known for my contemporary Southern take on Pop Art illustration, and for walking the line between fine art and consumer goods.
Studio visits to our light, bright, Scandinavian/industrial/midcentury-modern space are encouraged; a crow's nest loft in the studio will soon be available for short stays via Airbnb.
LUCKY HAND Q&A
HOW DO YOU TAKE YOUR COFFEE?
Early & frequently, and 'til the job is done. Black with sugar, frontier-style. Sometimes with whiskey!
A late October motorcycle trip to camp in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and do a little fishing.
The Bitter Southerner. It's a brilliant capsule for the storytelling of the contemporary South. True colors.
WHAT'S ON THE RADIO AT THE STUDIO?
We have an ever-growing Spotify playlist. It's eclectic as $h!t - no other way to describe it. It's important. Music can color your studio practice.
