Jay Ryan Chicago
Jay owns and runs his own workshop, The Bird Machine . He began learning to screen print in 1995, working under Steve Walters at Screwball Press. Jay printed posters for his own band (Dianogah), his friends' bands, and the clubs they played at. In 1999, Jay started the Bird Machine print shop in the basement of his apartment building. In 2007, the Bird Machine moved a final time, to a small building in Skokie, a near-north suburb bordering Chicago. Poster Cabaret, as a going business interest, was probably most inspired by the great art of Jay Ryan. Jay has made posters for Modest Mouse, Built to Spill, the Decemberists, and Death Cab for Cutie, to name a few.
