Fred Lammers has somewhat of a cult following for his rough-and-tumble hot rod, surfer, and tiki-inspired art. His simplified mid-century style is super appealing, and his work depicting male-female couples was well loved by his fans.
Then one of his collaborators here in the States, Todd Kimmell, noticed that Fred was including male-male versions of his best-known themes. Todd was surprised at first, then delighted, and then curious to see if they could make a splash with Fred's work.
Tim has big plans: "Winnowing down from a pool of over 50 completed works in the series, we will debut a mere dozen of them as prints at Philadelphia’s Franklin Flea during the holiday season, held at the legendary original Strawbridge & Clothier department store building in Center City Philadelphia, and on the Etsy site for our Philly- based print shop, The Grand Review. In that environment, Target, Urban [Outfitters], and the like can send their representatives to watch the general public, straight and gay, respond with delight."
