Pressing Matters

Greg Nanney brought his van, loaded with t-shirts, press and ink, to Western's campus the other day. Drive by Press was born out of a Masters project of Greg's and he has been on the road for the past 3 1/2 years hopscotching campus's around the country printing his artwork on T-shirts for $10 a pop if you bring your own shirt or $20 if you buy a shirt from them.
Nick Alley has been on the road with Greg for the past 4 months. Everywhere they go they collect prints from other artists and have amassed quite the collection of artwork from college's around the country.

The sale from these shirts is all that Greg and Nick use to fund their venture, but they have gotten help from other artists willing to support their cause. When their old truck broke down it was a donation that helped them get the van they now use to continue on with their business. "I think we got about another year in this." said Greg, "It will be nice to have a home again. Right now I don't even have a bed." he said laughing.
