In another time’s forgotten space

Holy moly, it's time for an update.duckhat

I've been busy, man! Between Elmer Gomer and design projects, I've been strapped for time.

Not to mention, I started a new job that I'll tell you all about soon to help fill the freelance hills and valleys. I'm not giving up on anything, but just changing up the pace of life during these weird times and keeping my brain busy and learning some new stuff.

Fun times!

Check out the buds at Yellow Jacket and their 6th Anniversary Party coming up. Stoked to have spent a majority of those years cranking out posters for the bar.


 

Read about a couple other projects I just completed below:

Fairless Works

-1

I helped build a brand for artist and builder, Hazey Fairless who does metal and wood working here in Austin. We built a website for you to learn more about her work. Go take a look and hit her up for any artful construction work for the home.

Cactus Construction

CACTUS-final-logo-white

I also finished another logo for builder and good homie Ryan Christiansen who is starting his new company in Arcata, California.

Stay tuned for more developments with Cactus.

elmer-gomer-volcom-patches

Here are a few patches for Volcom that I worked on for their new shop coming here in Austin. I've got some other rad news coming on that front, but you'll just have to wait a bit.

Year in the Rearview

Adios, 2016. We won't miss you all that much.

Whether you were bummed on a celebrity passing, you were broke, you didn't vote, you stepped in gum or you realized what a piece of shit the world truly can be, there's probably some reason you're ready for a fresh start. I go between the idea of next year either being way better or way worse. Either way, it's a chance to try to be something different or try something new.

Let's be real.

We've had some wild things happen this year. Basically, time keeps moving on. It's been tough to keep my head up through it all, but I know next year will be better. All I can do is continue to make work and look for new ways to keep afloat in this town that keeps changing and getting more expensive each day. I'm trying to be smarter, more open to change and wiser with my business. It's hard being an artist and also run the business side of things, too. I'm still learning.

This year has brought me much joy in learning a new craft of sewing and embroidery. I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd be obsessed with sewing, but you never know if you like it till you try it. It inspired me to create Elmer Gomer, a project I've had in the back of my head for a long time. I can't wait to see how it develops and morphs in the next year.

I'm in my new makeshift studio.

After learning that I'd be losing my space earlier this year, I decided to build out an existing shed on our property. It's something that I've schemed on for quite a while and dreamed about even longer. As it turns out, Austin's real estate market is out of control and we've got a limited time at our place. It's a bummer after spending money and time to finish it off, but I'm going to make the most of my time here and really make some art and memories in here. Stop by and check it out soon.

As always, this time of year I like to thank all those who help keep my creative fire alive. If it weren't for my clients and supporters, I'd be a much grumpier person. Thanks to my friends, family and fellow artist homie domies for keeping me going. It doesn't get any easier, but you make it more bearable.
