General Strike poster

Two colors, 16” x 24”, printed onto reclaimed paper. I’m handing these out (FOR FREE) at Oakland’s Art Murmur tonight (April 6). If you’re in the Bay Area you should come find me and take some.

Of Course Not at Swarm Gallery (again)

New poster!

This Saturday. Copies of the above poster (WHICH ARE SCREEN PRINTED) will be for sale. Or, if you are me, you can just go take one down from a electrical pole in Oakland/San Francisco. Bring a stool!

Jessalyn and I are doing our first duo exhibition at Swarm. I’ll have a number of BRAND NEW prints. Read all about it here.

One-Arm Printing

August 26, 2010

arm

So I DIY engineered a one-arm bandit/squeegee (as seen above). If you are REALLY interested in also building one a complete breakdown of the build can be found at this extra cool individual page. It’s kind of long.

Useful Information!

August 4, 2010

I made an EXTREMELY useful graphic explaining an excellent installation technique for wall mounting posters utilizing pushpins and paper hinging tape which PREVENTS poking holes through the poster itself (although if you harvest my show posters from a telephone pole you’re already raging with multiple staple puncture locations). There’s even a caption at the bottom of the graphic in case you forget the subject of this IMPORTANT document.
