“Last Run” is a head-on collision of the passions of artists Erik Foss and Joe Roberts. A piece of cardboard floats in mid-air, its shape reminiscent of an amulet. The energetic marker drawings mix sketches of aliens, smiley faces and peace signs with a one-point perspective drawing of a temple. Rainbow stripes radiate outwards and everything comes to a point at a cheeky image of Mickey Mouse. All this combines to create an image that could be an artifact from alternate dimension, or from a break in the space time continuum.
Erik and Joe met in 2011 and were immediately inspired by each other’s work. They set about collaborating soon after. They worked side by side at Erik’s New York City studio and once Joe returned to San Francisco, they mailed drawings back and forth, creating a bi-coastal studio practice.
Their collaboration is rooted in a shared interest in and inspiration by politics, comics, conspiracy theory, skateboarding, psychedelic, and counterculture. The contrast of innocence and degradation is a central vein in their work.

Frame Styles in Black or White
Gallery Frame full bleed means framing to the edge of your print.
Shadowbox Frame with a spacer is a method of framing to keep the art fully visible in the frame, edges and all. This gives the illusion the piece is floating within the frame either on a mat or on a foam core lift. A spacer is added to the frame to keep the artwork from touching the plexiglass. When floating, we add 1.5” all around for all art sizes.
When you should expect delivery
Once you place the order we aim to ship completed custom frames in 5 to 7 business days. We send the finished frame by FedEx Ground Delivery. It takes about 2 weeks to create your new frame and deliver it to your door to be hung and enjoyed. Prices include all shipping within the contiguous US and a signature is required. Because each frame is made by hand specifically for every order, we regret we cannot offer refunds or exchanges.
Why we use Plexi
We use UV-filtering plexiglass for all frames. Why? Because that is the best option and has become the industry standard. Chances are you will be moving and plexiglass is lighter, scratch-resistant & shatter-resistant. It also provides more UV protection and less-glare than glass. While a bit more expensive than glass, the quality and protection plexiglass offers is so good, most art sellers and galleries are using it and so should you. Our standard UV plexi filters ~ 85-89% of UV and 92% of light.
What we are made of
Our frames are the highest quality, produced by manufacturers here in the U.S.A. Our frames are made from woods like maple, walnut and oak. The mats we use are completely archival: 4-ply, acid free and contain a white core.
We always love to see where the posters find a home.
