Hello. My name is Nick Butcher. I'm an artists and musician living in Chicago, Illinois. I moved here about five years ago from Murfreesboro, Tennessee where I attended college. I studied graphic design and printmaking in school and have since tried my hand at many other mediums. I'm originally from Dyersburg, Tennessee, a small town near the mighty mississippi river. I miss the open space of Tennessee but thrive on the energy here in Chicago's art and music communities. Since the summer of 2006 I've been sharing a studio space / printshop with my girlfriend, Nadine Nakanishi. We call the place Sonnenzimmer (german for sun room) and since February of last year we've been trying our best to turn this place into a bonafide business. The focus being poster design and printing. We do a lot of other things here too, of course. Make art, graphic design, print editions for artists, and host the occasional exhibit. Feel free to drop by sometime if you want to take a closer look at what we do.
