I made this super quick print yesterday for two competing shows that are right next to each other.
Pegasus is the monthly queer party that I help organize. It is continually amazing, and I am always so surprised at the level of interest and talent that all the performers bring. Fucked up drag, good music, and one of the cosiest places to hang.
Pegasus: "Spring Fever" feat. the velveteens (they play beats on a typewriter), Lambs of God (boombox, vocals about catholic guilt), DJ's Gay Pain (that's me) and Tell it to my Heart.
Here's a 2 color poster I did for an upcoming art show I'm in.
it's called Flocked: a wallpaper project. the show consists of about 30 different artists who have created either an image in multiple (i.e. print) or some kind of series of 5 images. each "cell" will be placed at random on one wall of my friend Anna Tsantir and Nick's studio. Creating this huge checkerboard of all different small pieces. Should be fun.
the Poster was an attempt to illustrate that Covered feeling. I collaborated with my good friend Jessica Seamans of Landland. She drew the feet, I drew the dogs and did the layout and printing. I think it is pretty great for a quick, 2 color smackdown.
16'' X 16'' on super fancy crane offwhite thick stock.
more details about the show:
Flocked: A wall paper project
Location: Casket Arts Carriage House, 1720 Madison St NE #203, Minneapolis Hours: Fri 8-11pm, Sat noon-6pm, Sun noon-5pm
Opening Party 8-11pm Friday May 14th
This is not your grandmother’s wallpaper. Studio mates Nick Howard, Anna Tsantir and Vincent Murray invited 30 local artists to create prints, drawings and multimedia two dimensional works that will be combined to cover a 22’x10’ studio wall floor to ceiling. Each artist created at least five works no larger than 10”x15” that together will loosely mimic the repetition of a wallpaper pattern. So "flock" over to the Carriage House this art a whirl weekend, and see what they've come up with.
