Are Those Eames Bucket Chairs?

At the July Artwalk, I participated in the SALVAGED art show, along with a numerous of other extremely talented artists. My entry for the show was a Bucket chair that I cleaned up drastically. I spent a few days just sanding it, trying to get all the rust off so I could paint and draw on it. Although I only submitted one chair for the show, I actually did two chairs. I have been wanting to draw on a bucket chair ever since I saw the Eames Bucket Chairs that Mike Perry did a while back. Not sure if the ones I did are actual Eames chairs or replicas, but either way I’m stoked I got the chance to do them.

Mitch’s Macbook

So a couple of days ago, my friend Mitch was over hanging out and he came up with this awesome idea of letting me draw on his Macbook. Any chance I get to draw on something that isn’t paper, I make sure to take. I have fun drawing on random things, such as furniture, shoes, and in this case, Mitch’s Macbook. I’m pretty stoked with how it came out. Since his Macbook is black, I used Silver pens on it. Check it out.

Jacksonville Magazine Hipster Fashion

This month is the Essential Guide to Life in the River City 2010 Sourcebook edition of Jacksonville Magazine, the magazine of northeast Florida for over 25 years. This issue is an overview of everything Jacksonville. Under the shopping Retail Therapy section of the mag on pg 68, our shoes from the shoe show at Underbelly, which we collaborated on a few months back, are featured under the Hipster category. I want to drop a big thanks to the wonderful ladies over at Anomaly / Underbelly for putting on a great show, and to Jacksonville Magazine for including us in this issue.

The Foul Mouths

This past week was the annual AIGA Cocktails & Creatives Bowling Night. This event brings together members and non-members for an evening of competition, fun and camaraderie. I have taken an interest in doing more with digital illustrations, and took this event as an opportunity to practice by putting together a team name, the Foul Mouths and creating a poster for our team table. Our team didn’t win.. or even come close for that matter, but we had a lot of fun and it was great to come out and see everyone as always. Check out the winners on the AIGA Jacksonville Chapter blog, and pictures form the event on their Flckr account.
