Austin Zine Fest

Jess and I took our trove of Crummy House books, zines and posters up to Mass Gallery where we met and ran into a bunch of nice zine makers and creatives from around the Texas area. We got a few good trades and sold a couple books, but overall had fun just hanging out and talking to people.

FFFFest Mural

Birds Barbershop hired me to paint a mural for their Cuts for a Cause booth at Fun Fun Fun Fest this year. I tapped my buddy Rich Cali for an extra pair of hands and his creative vision to help me execute this 200 square foot panel. We ended up coming up with some cool, desert, space-landscape in a limited color palette. It was a bunch of fun! Thanks, Birds and Rich! That as FUN!

Love from Texas at Busy-Being

Literally a day after the mural, I helped hang Alexandra Valenti and myself’s show at Busy-Being. We were super excited about the way it turned out and anxious for the next day’s opening. It went great and we had a good turnout and fun time hanging with the great homies on the steps of Busy-Being.

If you’re still interested in seeing the work, the show will hang through December, so get by there or check out some of the work online here.

Oh yeah, and know what? East Austin Studio Tour is this coming weekend and the opening of David Clark‘s show at Common House on Saturday from 6 – 9 PM. Looks like it’s gonna be another busy one. I’ll have some updates about EAST and where you can find some of my stuff, but for now, that’s all folks.

Neu Folk Revival at Lequivive

Our first full day in California was spent getting our bearings. We rode the MUNI and BART and found it pretty easy to get around. First stop, the haul to Oakland for the Neu Folk Revival show at Lequivive Gallery.

On our way, we wandered to a street gathering where we saw more art at a new spot called Naming Gallery. We met some rad people who swear they knew Jess and I from somewhere else. After a long talk about past places and faces, We could never figure it out, but there was some good music playing, so we just hung out with them before the show. Also, a sweet interactive music performance by Zach Huston was enjoyed by all.

Then we walked over to Lequivive Gallery where we hung out and checked out the early end of Neu Folk Revival’s opening night. We met Rich Jacobs, a great inspiration of mine and Max Kauffman, who curated the show and also an amazing artist. Thanks to Max and Mike at Lequivive for all the hard work on this show. It was really great.

Neu Folk Revival

Exhibition: October 5th – November 2nd

A Group Show Curated By Max Kauffman

LeQuiVive Gallery & guest curator Present, Neu Folk Revival a group show exploring notions of traditional art making. The title refers to a new movement working in these confines, or rather a cross section of artists from different realms that make work that speaks to this tradition. By celebrating these techniques, it is hoped that new appreciation for work done by hand, done for the simple act of creation is looked at in line with great artists spanning back to the dawn of civilization. At its core, it is visual storytelling, done by the everyday man, the craftsmen, the self taught, and the sometimes obsessive.

Birds Barbershop mural

Birds Barbershop needed some new artwork in the Burnet location, so we made this collection of rad musicians and their hairdos and hand painted that sucker up on a nice white wall. The contrast brings some new energy into the space and gives everyone a little something to look at while their hairs get trimmed.

I did a little signage on the door as well. I’ll post some better pictures one of these days.

Thanks for the commission, Birds!

I’ve also got to send major props to my homies Abi Daniel, Aldo Ramos and Anna Gogusey. They were troopers and help me get this shit painted on the wall and looking tight! Thanks you all!
