Dune Night

Last night was Dune Night at Cafe Racer. Oh what a night. I love me some Dune draw sessions. If you've never been it happens every 3rd Tuesday of the month at Cafe Racer in Seattle's University District at 5828 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle, WA  98105 . To get a copy of Dune you have to submit a page . So come join us for some draw session goodness. I was able to nab the cover drawing for this months issue #39. I know I've said this before but Dune is my favorite night out in Seattle. I have met so many amazingly talented artists and made some good friends along the way as well through Dune. A huge thanks to Max Clotfelter for all his hard work putting together these  books every month. As a participant sometimes we don't realize how much work this is for Max. We just draw some stuff put in a few bucks and poof next month there's a new book. This is all because of the dedication of Max. You're awesome dude ! Thank you! 

This month is pretty rad too because Dune was written up by Robert Rhee in Art In America magazine. I would link to the article but it is only available in print form. So check it out at your favorite news stand. But here is their website just in case.

Connect Four - Opening Night

I'm still thinking about the opening of this show. It was incredible! Thank you Vera, Rob, Dave, Claudio & Axis Pioneer Square for coming together to make such a great show in a Beautiful Venue. I had a really good time at the opening. It was good to see all my friends new and old. Thank you for being there with me. Till next time. Cheers.

Puzzled By Puzzles No More !

I made some puzzles ! I want to do more of these. They were so much fun to work on. One of a kind hand painted puzzles . These are not printed but hand drawn/painted custom on each puzzle. The boxes are also hand painted paper mache. #Goodtimes !

New Website and Best Of The Northwest.

Hello everybody :) I have a new website (as you can see) I also have a new place to update my blog. I still have www.FacesAndStuff.com up right now but this will not be for long. I am transitioning everything to this page where I can have an overall better website that represents what I do more accurately.  So enough about that. 

 

This weekend I had a blast thanks to Molly Bryan and NW Art Alliance. Andrew Miller and I painted some great mini murals live at Best Of The Northwest . The weekend crowd of art fair goers seemed to enjoy the show. It was fun meeting all the people that came out and talking with some of the other artists in the show. It was nice to see some familiar faces with booths and all the great artwork that people had for sale. The show was very diverse and eclectic. They had painters and glass artists , jewelry makers , fine chocolateirs , carvers, wood turners, clothing designers and fine crafters alike. It really was a good show. The finished murals will be auctioned off in November to benefit NW Art Alliance so they can continue to put on great shows like Best Of The Norhwest. They will have another show with another group of 82 artists in November. That show will have Ryan "Henry" Ward doing some live painting work like Andrew and I did today. Good times, good weekend, and Good Night!
