U of M Graphic Design Student Sells Prints of His Final Project
After an overwhelmingly positive response online, a Minneapolis-based graphic design student has begun selling prints of his U of M final project.
According to the post's caption, the print was supposed to be part of a screen printing studio final at the U of M. Due, no doubt, to the coronavirus shutting schools down prematurely, he didn't get a chance to show the piece publicly. So he posted it online to platforms like reddit and Instagram instead. The response was overwhelmingly positive.
"I love this!" praised on reddit user. "I'm gonna be taking some printmaking classes to get my art minor at the U, and this makes me so excited to do so."
"10/10 would buy," said another. "I have a small collection of Loon themed things and this would fit right in. Looks great."
"Yo dawg do you do commissions?" asked a third. "I have a North Dakota gallery wall that this style would be perfect."
With so many people interested in purchasing prints, Surface Dweller created a Red Bubble account where people can buy online. He also released a second print of Minnesota's state fish the walleye and is taking suggestions for more Minnesota state symbol print ideas.
