This one turned out to be a total pain to print, but, in the end, was well worth the effort. Bright and vibrant in five colors on white. I was hoping for an edition of five or six, but due to my exacting – and slightly OCD – standards, I settled for three.
A long overdue “thank you” for a stellar Cherokee Heights Arts Festival 2019! I got to spend the day with this lovely lady and a steady stream of art lovers that didn’t let up all day long. We had our best year yet! The planning committee and roadies did a superb job of making this a seamless and memorable experience (as always). Great music, food, drinks, and crowds with the most artists participating in fest history! We’re excited to see the momentum and enthusiasm for CHAF continue to grow while being a part of it all. We’ll see you there next year!
The changing* of the seasons has really lightened my mood. Sure, I love summer for the beaches and mountains and pools and ice cream and general carefree fun, but the soul-crushing heat and humidity has finally pushed me to the breaking point. Summer 2018 seemed especially hot and, though I’m not certain we broke any records, it definitely was long.
Now it’s time to get back back out to the workshop and make it happen. And I’m ready. Seriously, that statement can’t be circled, underlined or highlighted enough. My summer days were filled with sketching and color studies in anticipation of that very moment the clock struck Labor Day. Each day arrived filled with ideas and inspiration. Nights were filled with dreams awash in weirdo, day-glo colors.
So humidity, if you hear me, get your act together and move along. My screens are prepped, colors are ready and it’s time to get to work.
*Autumn does not actually begin until September 23rd.
Just locked in two colors on this new screenprint for 2018. I’ve been very much looking forward to exploring more hard-edged, geometric abstraction this year and Untitled was an awesome design with which to kickstart the season.
Seriously, is there anything more exciting than designing a multi-color piece and locking in that final color on the print run? It’s like putting in that last piece of a jigsaw puzzle. The thrill never gets old.
