This Friday sees the opening night of two shows that I have work in. Expect another blog post before the week is out, but for now, here is my contribution to the Mike Mitchell curated Space! show at everyone’s favorite art space, Gallery1988.
Mike has assembled an incredible line up of artists for this show, so if you’re in the area, get yourselves down there on Friday (or for the rest of the following month), and if not then get your F5 fingers ready when the work goes online over the weekend because you’ll want some of this on your walls.
My piece is a two color screen print (and i am indebted to a super short turnaround by the mighty Danny Askar), in an edition of 30 for $40 of your dollars. For whatever reason, tumblr is freaking out when i try and post it as a single image, but it is supposed to be a whole thing (9 x 24” at full size). I suppose you could buy it and cut it in half to replicate the effect of this tumblr post, but i wouldn’t recommend it.
Up next: Adventure Time for the Mondo Gallery. And my contribution will be unacceptable….
After long long hours of sitting at my desk or computer my body has grown increasingly dissatisfied with this routine of mine…so yoga has been happening in my life to amend the situation! Here is a little gouache painting inspired by this new part of my day!

Yuki Hikosaka and Izumi Morito of Hikosaka Woodblock Print Workshop.
All around the world, perhaps the art works that says “Japan” more than any other are the famous ukiyoe woodblock prints. As you all know, to make ukiyoe, you carve an image into wooden boards, and print it onto paper — woodblock printing. This time we’re going to show you one example of how wood prints are carried on today, at Hikosaka Woodblock Print Workshop. But instead of kabuki actors and giant waves, the motifs Hikosaka use are, bread. Yup, delicious looking, freshly printed, bread. via pingmag
A quick short comic I made at the Sismics festival in Sierre last week, for a kids comic workshop.
A full page illustration is for the last New Yorker fiction “Mayfly” by Kevin Canty.
Big thanks to AD Jordan Awan who suggested that we could create an edge to edge butterfly piece focusing on the first paragraph of the story: “Driving across the Utah desert on I‐70, James hit a butterfly with his car. Then another. Then a shower of them, hitting the windshield like hail, wings trapped in the wipers, orange and black. The noise of them, muted but steady, woke Molly from her trance, and she looked out the windshield, at broken wings and yellow smears.”
You can read the process post on my drawger.
