The Stars Motel, one of several vintage motels on Chicago's Lincoln Avenue, was demolished last September, but its vibrant neon sign lives on in this bold daylgo-orange and black print by David Derr. David is an art director who photographs vintage signs as a hobby, then makes colorful silkscreen prints of his favorites. "I really enjoy working on the prints," he says, but I never put much energy into selling them." His "stars" print was printed in an edition of 35 on beautiful 100% cotton Arches Aquarelle archival paper.

Swap Meat Exclusive: Available For Purchase Sold Out
15 prints remain from a limited-edition of 35. 30" x 22" Signed and Numbered and Hand-Screened on Arches Aquarelle archival paper. $60 each.
