Huak – Yorba Linda vinyl record

The first record I got to design and screen print. Huak‘s – Yorba Linda. Printed on Kraft paper and is a 2 color print. I also designed the record sticker. I think 200-250 of these were made. I really love this record and am super happy with how it looks! Still available through the band if you want to grab one!

Portland Patch Project update!

Portland Patch Project

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.

Picnic Summer 2014 Re-cap

Picnic Summer 2014 was almost 2 weeks ago now but I’m just getting around to looking at the pictures I took. Picnic was great this year! One of the best for sure. Sales were great, set up was pretty easy, customers and seeing friends was great and also amazing bands played all day!
I had lots of new things available this year and was happy to offer things besides just prints. Thanks to anyone who picked up a tshirt or balsam fir pouch, I was most excited for those! Also if you grabbed a $5 print you win for deal of the day!
This was one of the first time I took my camera around and shot some pictures. I will never claim to be a good photographer but I do enjoy documenting events like this! Please enjoy and share these pictures if there is someone you may know in one of them.
