Portland Patches are now available at Ferdinand, Kurier, the Portland Museum of Art Shop and Pinecone+Chickadee! All in Portland, ME. Please feel free to send me links to shops you think should carry the project or if you have a shop and are interested!
Last night my friend Greg from the band blood warrior hung out and made some diy patches on fabric and some pins. I recently had the pleasure of designing his new album for the band which will be released in a few months and we have been brainstorming little merch ideas for him to have until the record is released. We are also working on a tshirt design that will be printed at a later time.
Greg also sings for the band o’death which have been a favorite of mine for awhile. If you are a fan of that band you will probably also like blood warrior. It is much more stripped down and has less instruments. Take a listen here, and look out for the new album Letter Ghost.

For the last few months I have been working towards to launch of my new project called the Portland Patch Project. It is basically a project where I curate 12 different artists to create a design in which will be getting made into sewn patches. 1 patch will be released every month by a different artists and between 100-300 patches will be made of each design. I will also be adding surprises throughout the year including screen prints, pins and possibly more patches!
The first patch in the project for January 2015 is Steve ‘Stivo’ Zittel‘s Maine Makers Club patch. I have just received these in hand and they look great! You can purchase these here and can choose between buying all the available patches individually or in a subscription which saves you money and gets you a few extra goodies. All patches so far are $6 and shipping is free.
I also have a older Maine patch that I designed and a screen print of Steve’s design available. Free is you order a subscription!
Other artists that will be making designs include… Ryan LaMunyon, Eric Hou, Hannah Rosengren, Kris Johnsen, Reuben J. Little, Amy Teh and a few more to be announced!
After this weekend patches will be available at the stores Pinecone+Chickadee, The Portland Museum of Art, Ferdinand & Kurier in Portland, Maine if you would like to purchase these in person. Pricing may change slightly at stores.
