Exhibition:XXL Relief!

XXL Relief is an exhibition put on by my friend and constant source of inspiration, Paul Mullowney, of Mullowney Press. The event takes place during Southern Graphics Council International, hosted this year in San Francisco. I'll have one of my Cathedral Suite prints on display, alongside some over-sized prints by amazing artists. There's also an after party. It's gonna be BIG.

 

I've Launched a Kickstarter campaign to study Japanese woodblock printmaking.

Today I am launching a kickstarter campaign to learn the process of Japanese woodblock printmaking at the Mokuhanga Innovation Laboratory, in Japan. Throughout my practice, I continuously find myself drawing from antiquity to better understand present dilemmas relating to identity and the habitual dependance on technology. As my primary medium is woodcut printmaking, learning how to print in the mokuhanga style feels natural.

I expect this residency at MI-LAB to establish a solid foundation that I can use to create multi-color woodblock prints with water-based inks. I'm also expecting my carving and knife sharpening skills to shoot through the roof! Can't wait to learn how to sharpen the Japanese way!

I've launched a Kickstarter Campaign!

Hi everyone, today I launched a Kickstarter campaign to help pay for the travel and material expenses for my upcoming residency at the Vermont Studio Center. I've backed projects before (the incredible flipbookit tugged at my film and animation heartstrings), and it feels exciting to be on the receiving end of the process, now. 

Most of all it is exciting to have the support of my fan base of friends, family, colleagues, and art-collectors. Click the link below to check out the campaign page.
