Tonight is the opening of Characters Welcome 5 at Tattooed Mom‘s in Philly! The show, which features sticker art from around the world, starts at 7pm (21+), with an all ages show Saturday 1-5pm. Plenty of my stickers will be in the show,  and as in previous years, the boards of stickers are available for sale and 100% of the profits benefit youth art programs.

I was lucky enough to have been asked again to help set up for the show, which involves hours of peeling stickers from my favorite artists and sticking them on boards (with the occasional poutine break). This year, the sizes of the boards vary (12×12 to 2ftx4ft), so you’ll be able to find a board that fits your wall space.

A few of the stickers I made for the show.

The best part of this show is that it brings in street artists from all over the place (Philly and beyond) for a night where the stickers flow freely.  I’ll be giving stickers out to anyone who wants one, as well as some new block prints!  See you there!

Junta Visualized

Posted in Art, Paintings with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 12, 2013 by josean

I’ve been continuing the Phish theme in my art this summer.  Last weekend was their 3 day run at Saratoga Springs, NY (I made it to 2).  I’ve spent the week recovering from those shows and preparing for 2 nights at Merriweather Post Pavillion in Coumbia, MD.  During this time I’ve worked on a couple things, including some paintings and sketches for possible show posters.  While working on sketches for Gamehendge, I’ve also been sketching random songs as well.  I eventually ended up with a series that covers their first album, Junta.  I’ll be giving these out/putting them up this weekend, as well as a few in Philly. Time permitting, I’d like to draw other albums, although some of the songs can be pretty abstract.  Any requests?  Just add a comment with your song choice, and I’ll try my best!

I also made this painting that sums up my weekend at SPAC, with the highlight of Sunday.  They played one of my favorites, You Enjoy Myself (YEM) shortly after it stopped raining, and included an unique Run Like an Antelope (run like a meatstick!)  I was debating making prints of it, but for now it hangs on my wall.

Keep an eye out for my Antelope signs on the lot (They’ll be hard to miss!)  If you miss me, I’ll have them up on etsy as well.

Find me in the lot at Merriweather, and I’ll give you a sticker as long as they last!

2013 started off on a roll (pardon the pun).  I had been previously making some simple block prints (mainly examples that I’d use in class) which I’d make stickers out of, but I hadn’t really worked seriously with lino blocks since college.

Getting some new blades motivated me to work detailed again.  My first couple prints were more studies than anything, making block print versions of several drawings/paintings I had done previously.

Fun with Stickers III

Posted in Art, Drawings with tags , , , , , , on August 2, 2012 by josean

I recently picked some USPS labels and decided among other things to draw up some new dinosaurs.  It’s been a while since I’ve drawn some terrible lizards, and along with the state of the Postal Service right now, it seemed more fitting than ever.
