Ryan Duggan is an artist living and working in Chicago, with a love for illustration, design and screeprinting. For the last ten years he has made concert posters and art prints under the name ‘Drug Factory Press’ while also making “fine” art under his given name. You might know his concert posters for bands like Iron & Wine and Plan White T’s, own a copy of his Dare To Be Stupid book or have cracked a smile seeing his ‘with shitting dog’ art prints.

Known for his use of hand-drawn type, economic line work, and tacit humor, Ryan’s work has graced many fine surfaces of this great city and he’s been featured in the pages of The Chicago Reader, The Chicago Tribune, Nylone Korea, Alarm Magazine and Newcity.
