No Bones For Halftones 2

It’s Fall! And that means it’s time for the 2nd Annual No Bones for Halftones Show. This Saturday, grab a plain t-shirt and come to St. Johns to get a free screen-printed design/illustration on your shirt.

Last year we had an amazing turn out and it was tons of fun. This year, there are 12 artists. That’s 12 different t-shirt designs. All for free! Did I forget to mention, there will also be free beer from Captured By Porches?! In addition to the free stuff, there will also be merchandise, tons of vinyl stickers, and lovely art to view, also don’t forget to make a donation. Art supplies aren’t cheap.

Yours truly will be one of the featured artists. From 6:00 – 6:30 pm you can get a screen print of this image I drew:

Come check it out and go to the website to find out more about the event: No Bones For Halftones Website and Facebook. See you there!

Hot One Inch Action RESCHEDULED

Last November, a button show created by Jim Hoehnle and Chris Bentzen called Hot One Inch Action was scheduled to take place at Backspace, but due to some issues at the borders, the U.S. would not allow these nice Canadian fellas and their buttons enter the country. Sadly, the show got canceled. Good news: The show has been rescheduled!

Here’s how it works:

The original work of fifty different artists is presented on one inch buttons. These one inch buttons are displayed on the wall and the audience is offered the opportunity to buy randomly selected buttons in mixed bags of five for $5. If the bag purchased does not have the desired button, trade with the people around you.

It sounds like tons of fun! I have a button in the show. Come and check it out! Buy a bag of 5 and get your trade on.

Christmas Shopping

It’s that time of year to stress about what to buy your friends and family for the holidays. I have a solution. Get them some charming artwork of people with boxy looking heads drawn, inked, painted, or screen-printed by yours truly. If you’re like me, you procrastinate ’til the last minute, but don’t you worry, there is still time. There are 3 places in Portland you can find me.

1.) Jam On Hawthorne

2239 SE Hawthorne Blvd. Portland, OR 97214 // Open Weekdays 7:30am-2:30pm; Weekends 7:30am-3pm

This month, on the walls at Jam, there is an array of artwork from different artists. Everyone who showed this year was invited back to be apart of a group show for the month of December. The work I’m showing is brand new, and best of all, affordable. Jam is a great place, good food and friendly people. Check it out!

2.) Benjamin Benjamin

1720 NW Lovejoy #102 Portland, OR 97209 // Hours are Tuesday-Friday 10-5, Saturday 10-2

I have some old prints chillin’ in the gallery. They are original limited prints that I screen-printed myself. They haven’t been cut or cropped, so you can trim them down to a size that fits your needs best. Also, while you’re there, take a gander at the Print Show taking place right now. And if you’re from out of town, it’s okay. You can shop online! Pay Benjamin Benjamin a visit. Good people. Good gallery.

3.) The People’s Art of Portland

3rd floor of Pioneer Place Mall // 700 SW Fifth Avenue Portland, Oregon 97204

Four galleries called The Settlement recently emerged on the 3rd floor of the Pioneer Place Mall, one of those galleries, The People’s Art of Portland (run and curated by Chris Haberman and Jason Brown), invited me to be apart of the project and I couldn’t be happier. There will be an exhibition open to the public this Saturday, Dec. 18th from 6 PM to 10 PM. As soon as I find out more details I will post them. I’m excited about the show. Check it out, folks!
