The Explorer End of Year Update

As 2013 winds down, I'm excited to announce that my Explorer project is getting closer to a final form. I've been working out this piece since about April of last year, and over the past several months, I think I finally have the story I want to tell.

I decided to take a few moments and scan in some updated concept images to share, and I hope by the end of this week to have more finished work. I'm still debating on what that will be, and how to get there, but there will be a book, and there will be screen printing involved. More on that in the New Year! Till then, take a look ( and the new and the old if you haven't seen them) and let me know what you think.

Not dead yet...

I'm still kicking around out here, making some changes, working on new pieces and finding the right path to organize and complete up the explorer concept. Stay tuned...

The Explorer

I've been cranking away at sketches for a new concept, "The Explorer." I don't quite have the story worked out, or if it will even be a standard narrative, but I'm fascinated with the concept right now. I'm also not sure how I'll actually make the finished work, but for now I'm sketching with pencil, pen, ink and coloring with copic markers. Which I'm really enjoying working my ideas out with. 

In case my scrawl is to messy, the text box under the title "The Explorer" says " I was searching for something, but I don't remember what... Did I already find it? Should I keep going?" As I continue to sort out the imagery and story, i'll update more.

As always, thanks for looking around.

Bumming Bird Feeder

A sketch based on a drunken conversation, whilst on a friends back porch. For those that don't know, the bumming bird lives mostly in the pacific nw, as we all commonly have wine based feeders in our back yards.

Portland's 15 Minutes - 52 LTD and Designspeaks

I was approached by 52 LTD to create an illustrated and screen printed poster for their upcoming event, Portland's 15 Minutes - Where is Portland in its 15 Minutes of Fame. We had a super short turn around, but with some help from Melissa Lang, I was able to get the design and printing completed j.i.t. for their event!

Each of these posters features a 2 color hand screen printed original illustration by yours truly. If you'd like one of the 100 posters, they are giving them away to the first 100 people who show!

Resting Place - 2013 Chair Affair Poster

This will mark my 3rd year participating in the Community Warehouse's Chair Affair Event. Last year I created a poster called "Pieces of Home," that quickly sold out during the silent auction, and the year before a night stand called "Night Yeti." 

This year I decided to create another series of posters called "Resting Place." I hand screen printed each of the 20 12" x 18" posters, that feature my original illustration/design, using water based inks, on 140lb French Construction paper. If you'd like to get your hands on one, you'll have to attend the Chair Affair event on March 21, 2013. You can get tickets here.

If you want to learn more about the Community Warehouse and why they are great organization to support, check out this awesome video!
