This is primarily a screen printed clothing line.

We are based in Urbana and make unique designs that catch people's eyes and resonate with them.

The designs start in my sketchbook, and I eventually end up printing them myself.

At Scobar, there is no greater satisfaction than knowing we have put a smile on your face or made your day better, even if just in a small way.

The Institute 4 Creativity (I4C) was founded in September 2012 to help people of all ages and backgrounds understand, develop, and utilize their creativity by providing a dynamic synergy of education, arts, humanities, science, technology, and ecology.

About Larry Kanfer:
A longtime resident of Champaign-Urbana, Larry graduated from the University of Illinois in 1979. Immediately afterwards, he opened his own photography gallery, which he has maintained since then. With a career spanning over thirty years, Larry has had the rare opportunity of making his art his profession.
Larry's works are shown in galleries, museums, and private and corporate collections across the United States. Praised by ARTnews, the Associated Press, and the Washington Post, he is primarily known as the pre-eminent photographer of Midwestern Prairiescapes. This collection has garnered comparisons to the works of Eliot Porter and Ansel Adams. His portfolios also contain major collections of other American landscapes and cityscapes, along with collections featuring Southern Europe, China, and India. To date, Larry has published six critically acclaimed books and award-winning calendars for the past thirteen years.

Figure One is a laboratory that supports projects, exhibitions and events stemming from all areas of study at the undergraduate and graduate levels at The University of Illinois School of Art + Design.

As an off-campus venue, Figure One is a public test bed for new ideas to take shape in the space between the safety of the classroom and the rigor of the professional world. The goal of the space is to fuel critical dialogue between students of the School of Art + Design and the broader University and local communities. As such, all programming of the space seeks to broaden the scope of discourse for student activity at the School.

Figure One achieves these goals through student-initiated programming and productive synthesis with existing School of Art + Design initiatives such as the Visitors Series and other public programs.
