There’s still time to sign up for my upcoming class at the Feast Art Center this Saturday. We’ll be exploring lino-cuts through an easy to learn white line format. Sign up at the link below and feel free to ask me any questions.
Today along with my partner Lance Kagey of Beautiful Angle fame, we wrapped up our public art project in the Lincoln District of Tacoma. It was super cold and snowy this morning setting up our tent for the Lunar New Year Festival, but the crowds stills came out to celebrate and we had a chance to send off the last of our 100 Flowercloud kits into the community. Many thanks to the City’s Office of Arts & Cultural Vitality and the Arts Commission for funding our project! Take a look at our project from start to finish in the pictures here. It was lots of work, but super fun to be a part of the revitalization efforts of this beautiful neighborhood!
This is the 13th year of the wayzgoose and my 8th year of participating. It was tough to find the time to fit in the carving required for my second steamroller print, but it turned out well and was worth all the hard work! Thanks again to my sister for helping me ink and to Sweat Pea and Jessica for all their efforts in putting this event on year after year! Here are some process shots and of course the final product.
As I’m rounding up my 9th year living in the city of Tacoma, I’m happy to call this region of the country and the city of destiny my home! As one of my fellow Tacoman, Tom Llewellyn, wrote today in the TNT, Art Saved Tacoma and the project below is a small bit of my contribution to the vibrant arts scene of Tacoma. I hope you get a chance to see or find one of these creations out in the wild!
I’m very humbled and excited to announce that I have been nominated for the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation Art Award for 2014! Tacoma is an amazing community and I’m proud to be a part of the creative scene here. There are many other amazing Tacoma artist nominated and you can check out the list here.
I was also highlighted on the GTCF blog the other day. Check out the post here.
I guess we will see what the news will be in June, but for now I’m just excited to be a part of this small group of people making Tacoma a great place to live!
