From the artist-
“There’s few storefronts that still resonate ‘old Austin’ to me, quite like the I Luv Video on Airport Blvd did. The murals, the sign, the building- all completely incongruous and unique in the rapidly evolving Austin retail market. I Luv’s very existence- a video store in a streaming-video world…it’s like finding an unused ’57 Chevy in a barn out in the sticks. “How is this still here and how is it so perfect?” But Covid and real estate has claimed another victim, and I knew I couldn’t let this business go by unlamented. I’m releasing this print through another local Austin business that has survived despite the challenges- Parts and Labour. Parts and Labour is the unsung linchpin of the working Austin artist community. Literally 100’s of artists in Austin can pay their bills, continue their craft, because of Parts and Labour. If P&L ever goes away, expect to see a mass exodus of talent and charm and general weirdness from Austin. So here’s to I Luv Video, and here’s to Parts and Labour. Keep Austin Weird, and this year- shop local, because without local businesses, Austin will be as culturally empty as a foreclosed Blockbuster Video.” – Tim Doyle
Prints are available now for $35, and are exclusively available online at Parts & LabourHERE.
