Work in the VALVE show at Paper City Studios in Holyoke, MA, opening Friday 10.11.13 10.10.13No Comments
I’m psyched to be joining artists like Bruce Fowler, Gary Hallgren, Adam Mulcahy, and Dean Nimmer, for this steampunk-ish show in Holyoke’s Paper City Studios, 80 Race Street, Holyoke. It opens tomorrow, Friday, 10.13, 6pm–9pm. I have four paintings and a sculpture in the show (these are terrible iphone photos). That’s my poster, too.
I’m excited to be showing several paintings in an exhibition at the creative agency 50,000 Feet . The opening is tomorrow night, Thursday, October 9th, at 1700 Irving Park Road, Chicago. I’ll be sharing the space with some extraordinary artists, including Darlene and Debra Delbecq, Karolina Gnatowski, Jordan Martins, Rachel Ritchford, Nathaniel Russell, and Michael T. Vollmann. My pieces in the show will be from my recent series of narrative diptychs painted on salvaged book covers. These are terrible photos of some of the pieces… but they capture their flavor.
Cotton Bureau is featuring our Roc Jetpack Laboratories t shirt design as part of its first wave. We created the design as part of personal project linking fictional narrative with design. Learn more here, and at the Roc Jetpack site and head over to Cotton Bureau.
Northampton’s FOE gallery has been a life-saving pillar of insanity in this otherwise sane and respectable land of Western Mass. I’m thrilled to have been invited to join the upcoming group show “Piece A Cake,” which opens with a 6pm reception on Friday, June 14th, and runs through July 7th. It’s going to be great to have a piece hanging next to work by artists like Bwana Spoons and Rick Beaupre and Martha Rich. My contribution is a watercolor/ink/collage on paper piece called “Just like Mom Used to Make.”
I am joining mighty metal comics man Colin Panetta for another free comics workshop for kids in Northampton, Mass. The Paint and Pixel Festival presents this workshop, which will happen every Thursday afternoon in April, from 4 to 5pm, at Modern Myths comics store. Bring your kids or borrow one and show up ready to create. Check out the poster, a collaboration between Colin and my own 9 3/4 year old Ben.
The project my son and I collaborate on, Wandermonster, is featured in the latest issue of Natural Child World magazine. I share some thoughts on creative parenting and being a father, and there’s a pair of full page “before” Lunch Posts for anyone to finish.
We’re pretty excited about it, so grab a copy. You can find it at Barnes and Noble, Target, and Whole Foods, or from their site.
If you’re not familiar with Wandermonster, check out this quick video.
Our sister blog, Wandermonster, is hosting a free Robot Art Lab Workshop this Saturday, March 9th, at FOE Gallery, a bastion of middle brow epicness in Northampton, Massachusetts.
For the past five years, my son and I have created collaborative comics we call Lunch Posts. With this free art workshop, we’ll bring the parent & kid madness to the masses. We’ll be joined by Colin Panetta and Adam Connor, two wonderful comic artists. Thanks to Jim and Nicole Shea of FOE Gallery, we’ll be running the workshop surrounded by epic robot art, the Rise of the Robots! show.
We hope you’ll join us.
Our friends at the Empiricist League have come up with another great line-up for the their fifth event, Tuesday, March 19th: three smart people talking about insanity, cancer-fighting warriors, demons, and miasma, otherwise known as “My War: The Immune System’s Never-Ending Battle Against Disease.”
No better way to get your science on then with a beer in your hand. I hope I can join you there.
