Mid-year review. Is blogging dead? I’m okay.
Sorry I haven’t been around. It’s not your fault. You’ve been nothing but good to me.
Before I start, I have a question for you. Is long form blogging dead? There are so many pervasive, hip, services these days that, if you think about it, oppressively force us to be succinct. Can we stand reading anything other than a pithy comment anymore? I don’t even know if I can but I miss writing about how I make things and how I can help others make things.
So let’s stop worrying about everyone else. Let’s just go.
The past few months have really flown by. Some pretty fun things have happened:
Light Grey Art Lab
This will be the 3rd year I’ll be making work for these cool cats and their gallery. They usually have an open call for art and all their themes are diverse, interesting, and challenging. If you’re ever thinking about a good home to submit your artwork to for consideration, I can’t think of a better group of people. Above is my piece for their BOSS RUSH show, a celebration of video game baddies.
There’s also a new show coming up, Patches & Stitches, where I designed a new shiny patch. More on that soon.
Comic and Cartoon Art Annual
Cannibal Lane, a silkscreen accordion book about a street market selling human delectables, made it into the Comic and Cartoon Art Annual(Special Format Category)! The show lasts from June 16 – July 3rd, with the opening reception on June 19 from 6-10pm($15 entry free).
New books are coming along!
Check it! A lot of process pics on my Instragram. I try to post at least once a week so you’ll find faster updates there. But I’m going to keep this going for more specific process work. Either option works.
Okay? Okay. Let’s keep going.
