There're tons of ways to use a spare room, from making it into a workshop, to a home theater, to a study in which to counsel the Brady kids on puberty, getting plowed in the face with a football, or Sam the Butcher's alarming love of sausage.

LM's a graphic artist set up across the river, taking a break from creating posters, CD packaging, logos, and illustrations for corporate clients and indie labels to knock out limited runs of local concert poster reprints and screenprinted canvas artworks in a multitude of styles, from German Expressionism to pop art, but not Pop Rocks art, so Mikey from the Life commercials doesn't explode from sipping a Coke while viewing it. Reprints include local show posters for acts like Minnesotan slowcore Low & Pedro the Lion (half a pop-art-chick's head with a parabolic hairdo), the folk/lo-fi Magnolia Electric Co. (a black bird perched on an orange hammer), and a lady stretched across a muddled background for post-hardcore Sparta (this is ART-A!!!!!). The art prints -- multi-colored screenprinted jobs on canvas -- include "Wino" (a deconstructed man looking enthralled by his magenta beverage), "It's The Rabbit" (a text-heavy bit for an art show with a Monty Python-inspired killer rabbit at its base), "Salome" (Deco flapper girl made largely from a photo from the Library of Congress archives), and an old school top-hatted gent called "The Boxer" (so...Ricky Hat-ton?)
If you're browsing through the posters but don't like a band, they also do art-ified prints of the heart pastiche print done for Feist, the forelorn-looking Brighteyes woman, and a National Eyes number featuring a crudely-shaped idol -- making your wall look so good, you'll forget you don't have curls, and also aren't Marcia. Yeah, you're Jan.
