Through A Plastic Lens

I’ve been promoting this event for a few months now in the Akron area. But if you weren’t already aware, I have an art opening one week from today. The show is called Through A Plastic Lens, and it is a show of photos that I took on my toy cameras. You can find out all of the necessary information HERE. There will be prints & zines available for sale. That evening, my good friend, Jesse Strother, will also have an opening, next door, for his new show, Birds. So we’re doubling up on the event, and following it up with a DJ’ed after party at our favorite bar (four doors away from the opening). So if you’re in the area, please consider coming by!

Crafty Mart 2010

Unlike last year, Three Bears will not have a table at Crafty Mart this year. We didn’t have enough time to prepare for it. However, my friends at Bark & Hiss offered to sell anything that I might be able to conjure up between now and then. So I will again be selling the little needle-felt owls that I made for last year. So, if you’re in the area, you might stop by and check them out. Also, check out the photos I just found of our table last year, from Amanda Johnson. Lastly, credit for the postcard design by my friend Andy Taray.

Square Records T-Shirt

Here’s a new shirt I drew up for my neighborhood friends, Square Records. I wanted to make a classic shirt for them that felt like it was from a previous decade. So I hand-drew all of the text, which is made to feel like some kind of abstract vinyl-texture for the main letters. I opted for them to be printed on American Apparel’s 50/25/25 track shirt, so they are really soft, and have that vintage feel.
These may, or may not, be available in time for my art opening in their in-store gallery space.

White Pines Promo Photos

Just shot these promo photos for my friend Joe, White Pines. He’s got a new record coming out in a couple of months called The Falls. I don’t usually do promo photos, but he particularly requested that I shoot with my Holga, and since it’s just one person, I couldn’t turn him down, especially considering the colors of the leaves right now.
