I can't believe it's been over a month since I posted anything! Having a full-time job can make blogging difficult... I've been tweeting and all that other stuff, but taking the time to sit down and purge hasn't happened until now! So just to clarify, I don't have a job at the moment...
I spent the first half of December working with my girlfriend Jen on her holiday event at Kaze Gallery, home to painter/tattoo artist Sandi Calistro.
13 artists showed work: Alan Bader, Chris Huth, Delton Demarest, Karma Leigh, Lui Ferreyra, Magnet Mafia, Matthew Clark, Rafa Jenn, Sandi Calisro, Sandra Fettingis, Scot Lefavor, Zachary Kuhlman, and Myself. The show was extremely successful, $990 was raised for the local non-profit, Slow Food Denver.
I sold an individual piece and also a handful of Magnet Mafia magnets with Matt Feeney.
I spent a week or so working on magnets and producing the arist plaques for the show, which came out awesome! The plaques were made of old fence planks and smoke acrylic pieces, cut on a flatbed cnc router... Thanks again to Alexi High and my son.
We had some fancy grocery bags printed up for the show too, Delton Demarest did an awesome caricature of my girlfriend standing in front of the 16th Street bridge.
I have also been working with my fabrication partner, Brian Greer on developing concepts for a public art project, we recieved good feedback on our idea and we'll be presenting physical mockups this month... Fingers crossed, I'm ready to share my work on a large scale! For now the concept is a secret, if it gets a green light I'll post plenty of pics, I'll post pics even if it doesn't get approved.
The site is in the River North neighborhood, a little industrial, a little urban, a lot cool...
Check out more work that Brian and I have done: Monolith Fabrication Studio
I painted a mural for Root Yoga Center two summers ago, but they have expanded since then so I had the opportunity to paint an interior piece on their new studio door... It was pretty fun to remember how I painted the first mural, which is visible from the north side of the 16th Street bridge. I have also done all of the signage for both of their studios.
I feel like I'm forgetting something... Oh well, Happy New Year everyone! I hope it's a great year for all of us-
