friday monster

come out on friday. i'm in the 9-10 shift.

February 27, 2009 6:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Southern Exposure’s
9th Annual
Monster Drawing Rally

Friday, February 27, 2009
6:00 – 11:00 PM
Donation: $5 & UP
Event Location: Verdi Club
2424 Mariposa Street (between Hampshire and Potrero Streets)

Southern Exposure announces the 9th Annual Monster Drawing Rally at the Verdi Club, a live drawing and fundraising event featuring over 130 artists.

Providing the basic necessities of the drawing practice--pencils, charcoal, pens, markers, ink, and paper--Southern Exposure creates the context while the artists create the content of the drawings. The evening will consist of four one-hour shifts with approximately 30 artists drawing simultaneously each hour. As the drawings are completed they will be hung on the walls and available for purchase for $60 each. The Monster Drawing Rally promises to be an action-packed spectacle you won't want to miss!

The Monster Drawing Rally provides a unique opportunity to watch a drawing come to life, and to purchase a work of art minutes after it's completion. Proceeds from the event provide direct support for Southern Exposure's Exhibitions and Artists in Education Programs.

The evening will also provide a sneak peek of Southern Exposure's new home! Southern Exposure is moving to a new 4,000 square foot space on 20th Street in the Mission District in late spring of 2009. Plans, drawings, information and ways to get involved will all be available at the event.

Music will be delivered all night long by Bo Derelict.

Generous in-kind donations for the 9th Annual Monster Drawing Rally are provided by Trumer Brauerei Berkeley, Bridgeport Brewery, and Nectar Ales.

rejected drawing of sun ra

bloo grass

the hits just keep on coming, people.
it's been in the works for a while, but the new vetiver album comes out this week (i think?) on sub pop and i got to do the artwork for it. there is even a shirt.i highly encourage you to swoop down on this record like a swooping banshee. here, maybe?i am so very stoked to be a part of the whole deal. there's also going to be a UK single with art you will recognize as previously blogged. rad dudes unite.

i'm super honored to have some of my drawings and lettering styles grace the new album by Cryptacize. it comes out april 21st. if you want to read about it you could go: here

such sweet sweet radness

don't fear the peeper

so in an effort to not feel like a total scumbag trying to sell art on this blog and realizing that i will probably never finish a legitimate website of my own, i started putting up stuff on Etsy. drawings and prints and stuff like that. i'll be putting up stuff every week or so. if you are so inclined, you can go here and check it out. some old stuff, some new stuff, etc. not a ton up right now, but i think eventually i'll be putting all kinds of random nuggets up there with the occasional dollar drawing for the lurkers. now back to posting images of my cat and youtube videos.

again with this

it's like when you're listening to npr and it's pledge week, but way less annoying: it's me telling you again for real that the calendars are in hand and ready to be shipped! pre-orders have already shipped! (thanks, dudes!)

let me tell you about it:
-3 color silkscreen, 18x24, on recycled archival paper, printed by Bloom Press in Oakland, California.
-i'm always late on things, maybe you are, too? this calendar deosn't even kick in until the 15th of february, so you still have plenty of time.
-the theme of this year is helping out your fellow people. give a hand!
-signed and numbered limited edition of 100.

(low quality photo taken on an iphone because my real camera was stolen by a burglar)
this is the button to click on to get one:

$35 postage included.
still a handful left, with some heading out to a few exclusive retail outlets in such exotic locales as: san francisco, los angeles, brooklyn, indianapolis, and louisville.
word on those later on.

and thanks for the support and for looking. i always feel a little off about selling things on here so i try to keep it to a minimum and i promise to only post about this a few more times or until i run out.
