A New Day

Even though I post updates here fairly regularly, it has been about two years since my official website has been updated. I was pretty happy with the layout and function of the old versions of the site but they were very limited when it came to adding new content. I spent the last week or so implementing a wordpress theme to the site and tweaking it to my specifications. It should be pretty easy to add documentation of any new work I might pull together. Now I just need to get cracking on a new body of work. I think I'll continue to use this blog as I have been while updating the website only with completed projects and current events.

So anyway, check out the site at goodfeets.com and see if it actually works. I've only tested it so far in Firefox, so there could still be some kinks to work out.

Littlest Prints Ahoy

Our friend (and print exchange fill-in hero) Pilar Nadal posted some nice unpacking photos of her Littlest Print Portfolio. I think this is the first review of the 2012 exchange. Pilar is pretty awesome. She's involved with a lot of print related activities here in Portland, not the least of which is her Tired Press, a bicycle outfitted with everything you need to run a tiny print shop. Look for her around town biking and printing postcards.

Littlest Print Exchange 2012

The 2012 Littlest Print Exchange wrapped up last week when the last of the portfolios went out with the post. As usual, it was an international affair with participating artists from twenty states and eight countries. The most represented state was Ohio with six submissions. The most represented country (other then the U.S.) was Canada, again with six. If you want to see how the portfolio came out, I have updated the exchange website with a gallery of all this year's prints. A lot of them are also available in the store for the ridiculously low price of only $10, shipping included. I'll be officially announcing another LPE side project sometime later this summer so be on the lookout for that.

Here's the first image from a new collaborative art project I've just started. This five inch by five inch wood panel will travel through the mail from one artist to another. Each artist is asked to add his or her own work to the panel, either altering the previous image or covering it completely. Photos will be made to document each iteration. In case you don't know, "palimpsest" is the term used to define a parchment which has been scraped clean in order to be written on again. Over time, evidence of the original writing may reappear or be uncovered through the use of modern technology. Just as with these ancient manuscripts, the richness of our traveling palimpsest will grow with the addition of each layer of artwork. As photos of successive layers arrive they will be posted for viewing at passthepalimpsest.blogspot.com. Keep an eye out for the second layer soon, added to the panel by Jonathan Stewart in Texas.

No Press Print Exchange

A few months ago I participated in a print exchange which forbid the use of any kind of press. That was good for me since I don't currently have access to any kind of press. I think I posted my submission back then, but here's the portfolio that I received. These pressless prints were made by Anna Reser, Rachel Donnelly, Jaime Tillotson, Achim Nicklis, Ren Adams, Addison Eaton, and Daniel Stromberg.

Half Tony

Just a little stack of some prints I'm trying out. Hand printed with the back of a spoon from a laser engraved plywood block made for me by the helpful folks at Sawdust and Noise. Modern age and bronze age technology meet.

Easy Listening

After the last 57 Splits release, the conceptually unlistenable ode to record sales, All Time Best Sellers, I thought it might be a good idea to make something a little easier on the ears. This new release is made up mostly from easy listening, lounge music, AM pop, and light rock. I think it came out pretty good. I hope you like it and download it.
