"the great lakes was founded in 2007 by rose lazar as a way to continue doing what she loves, printmaking. it all starts with an inspired phrase and then things get popping. influenced by fleetwood mac, charley harper, rob ryan, louise bourgeois, 50 cent, the shakers, campfires, simon and garfunkel, tina fey, massive amounts of candy, nature and nurture (equally), ms. josephine, sweet romance and good ole fashioned nostalgia."
i can't say enough how much the great lakes cards speak to a part of me that no other card line ever has. it may be that they too, are fond of neil young, or that their sentiments are captured both simply and cleverly. whatever the reasons, they are original and i love them.
