Down here in Texas, we’re not used to going weeks without seeing that big orb in the sky. We were glad to see it pop out from behind the grey clouds yesterday, so I thought I’d do a blog post to commemorate.

The year is in full swing and I’ve got a bunch of irons in the fire, but feel free to let me know how I can help you out this year on some art and design projects.

A few updates to share:

Upcoming show in Los Angeles

If you live in LA, make sure to hop over and check out this show by LAND Boys. I’ll have a few goods in the Texas Makers Market along with a bunch of patches. Stoked to be a part of this one, for sure and wish I could make it.

Alongside the exhibition will be a Texas Makers Market featuring goods by: Cobra Rock Boot Company / Fort Lonesome / Botanicals Folklorica / Ana Klausmann / Traveller Denim Co. / Mason McFee / Fortuna Monsoon / Marfa Brands / Miranda Bennett Studio / Folk Fibers / and PFAU

Happy New Year

masemangraphicsocrates

Welcome to 2015.

Last year was a roller coaster of the best highs and the lows of freelance design work. My work took me to San Francisco and New York in the same year, and I collaborated with the type of companies and projects I’ve wanted to since the beginning of my career. Along with a multitude of rad shows and gigs working with a wide variety of people, we made it another year.

Cheers to all who have pushed me along the way.

2015 is a mystery as to what projects will come along, but early this year, I will have a select group of products for sale at a pop-up shop in Los Angeles, curated by Busy-Being a shop here in Austin. This particular project has pushed me to create my own line of goods, mostly printed materials and patches sewn onto selected vintage clothes and hats.

Stay tuned for updates :)

Thanks and more thanks

Huge thanks to everyone who came out and celebrated with us at Bearded Lady for Public Private.

We had a great time and enjoyed seeing everyone of you. If you didn’t make it out, you can stop by the shop and see the work for the rest of the month of December.

I’ve been working on some fun projects, but none are ready to show yet! Here are a few shots of some things I’ll tell you about soon! Hope you had a great extended weekend for Thanksgiving and are ready for the final push of the year. Let’s knock it out with a bang!

Project LOOP: 50/50.2

Project LOOP is a fundraiser to build the skaters in Taylor, Texas a skatepark.

Project LOOP LLC. (Lesson’s On and Off The Pavement) is a 501(c)3 non-profit that consists of a network conceived to benefit youth through lessons in creativity, exercise, and hard work in a real world experience outside the classroom. We are a network comprised of creative professionals that have a desire to give back. Our goal is to build confidence, motivate, and give kids hands on experience in order to teach and prepare them for the future. The LOOP is not just for kids but adults who yearn to see community enhancement and improvement.

Here’s my take on the board which will be for auction at the upcoming event:

This year’s exhibition will have some heavy hitter art folks from around the world and from right here in Austin. The decks were displayed at FFFFest this past weekend, so here’s a sneak peak of some of the art action and you can catch the show and auction coming up November 21 at VUKA.

News, news, news

I’ve been neglecting my web log because I’ve got a bunch of stuff going on in my world. Here’s an update in real life stuff that’s been going on. I’m hoping to start bringing more random updates on projects I’ve got in the works, just too busy to get them in just yet. Here’s the big stuff right now:

I proposed to my best friend. We’re gonna get married. That’s big news right? We’ve been together for a long time and I couldn’t imagine being with anyone else.

I also started a new job/apprenticeship with a builder in town to fill to gaps in my freelance art and design world. It’s a part time position, so I still have time to do my art and design work, but it is going to inspire me to do new and bigger things.

I’m working on some new swag to be printed up including some one of hats, patches, and some screen printed shirts and stuff. Stay tuned for these as there will be very limited quantities.

FELIZ-postcard-04

Thanks to the good people working to put on FELIZ, I got to make a card for their upcoming event November 2nd at The Palm Door here in Austin. Thanks for the fun project! See you all at the event.

I’m also working with Jessica on a zine to be included in the Graffix Festival in Antwerp. Good Press our friends across the pond are entering the fest and taking a bunch of pages from people around the world so that participants can make their own bootlegged zine.

As always, if you’ve got something rad going down and need some art or design, contact me! Let’s finish off the year right and make something great.

Project LOOP Mural

Tribeza put on a benefit for Project LOOP at Revival Cycles this year. Three artists painted murals for the event, which are planned to be installed in the LOOP warehouse down the line. I was lucky to be one of those artists.

Here’s a quick rundown of the events and happenings.

Brian Phillips and Tim Kerr were the other two artists involved, both super rad guys who are always pushing the envelope and making stuff here in Austin and beyond. Here they are in a picture from a show in San Antonio earlier this year.

Brent Humphreys put a lot of effort into making the event a success, pictured with Tim and inky hands in this photo:

I made a sketch to try and get an idea of what I wanted to do. The idea was to just kinda “Go with the flow.” and make a colorful piece.

We met up out in Taylor to work in the LOOP warehouse because we’ve been getting a lot of rain lately. It was a pretty cool set up to be hanging and painting in the middle of small town Texas with Tim Kerr. We worked the day and then painted a bit together at the event the next night.

Very happy to have helped the good folks at American Canning get a new website up. We worked with their existing brand and cleaned up a few things, but focused on creating a simple site. We came up with a few new brand graphics to start to shape the brand and did some photography of the cans.
