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.

Been really needing to do a good old nonsensical post for a bit, so here goes. I’ve been really busy the beginning of this year. It might not seem like it because I haven’t been updating after each project, but there’s a bundle of stuff in the works.

Been dreaming of this baby for a bit. Love the tank colors against the raw metal.

I’m posting on Doodlers Anonymous for the month of May. Get over there and read some entries. I’ll be highlighting other doodlers in town and around my circle of rad creative people.

Also, Bearded Lady printed up a couple Beardos for an upcoming project: BYOBeard. There will be some TV action on PBS of the printing and me babbling about the artwork. I think I had toothpaste on the side of my mouth during the filming, so I may or may not tell you about it when it comes out.

Things in motion

Over the past month, I’ve been working on getting the art vibes moving. With that idea, I’m also trying some new things. Distressing pixels, forgetting about what I’ve learned, using the computer as a tool to get results I couldn’t get in real life. I don’t know that I’ve found the answer, but it’s fun experimenting and looking for new things.

I’ve also been trying to get myself to loosen up in many ways. For a long time, routine ruled my life and was a comfortable blanket to get wrapped up in, shielding me from any changes that might take that away. So, I made this reminder for myself:

I also got the chance to check out the Misprint magazine at their launch party. It was a bunch of fun. Here is the ad that Yellow Jacket ran and I designed and produced and helped concept. Turned out real nice.

And my contribution to the changing face of Misprint. Good luck with the Misfits cover band ya’ll.
