Join us in Denver Saturday, September 4th for the Opening of ARTCRANK DENVER 2010. We are putting together a proper little bike poster party with the artwork of 60 Denver artists on display. The show will be hanging for a week following the opening and run in conjunction with BFF Denver!!
We’ve got a few interesting partnerships/collaborations in the works… and will drop more details around the event over the next month leading up to the show… you’ve got plenty of time to work on the perfect pair of cycle legs.
It’s official! Celeste and I are moving to San Francisco in May. We will be selling everything that we can’t fit in a pod and taking off in search of adventurous life-changing mischief. We will more than likely be having some sort of “Minneapolis, Good Bye” event/drinks/food push off before we leave, so check your emails and Twitters for information on that.
We’ll also be stopping in Denver for a week on the way, to see friends and family and cause some ruckus. Stay posted for additional updates in the mean time.
ELM&OAK first event, LIFT OFF takes place tonight in Denver at City Hall. Show starts at 9PM. You’ll be able to catch a grip of excellent music, art and even some new apparel from the ELM&OAK line, some of which will be designed by yours truly. Make sure to drop by and get down.
“With our events we strive to bring you some of the most forward thinking musicians, beatmakers, artists, graphic designers, MCs, lighting/visual designers, and DJs from all over the world. LIFT OFF will feature performances by Alex B, Two Fresh, Mux Mool, Devonwho, Fisk, and live art by Berkvisual. Elm&Oak’s new clothing line will be available for purchase at the event so make sure you stop by the booth and check out the new designs.
Also, our good friends from clothing company Grassroots California will be making the trip out to set up a booth showcasing their newest line. Check em out!”
As you may or not already know, the Bordo Bello show is less than 2 weeks away and with the ever approaching deadline to finish and submit work, you get sneak peeks. Here is Josh’s peek at his delicious golden glory. Needless to say, Josh has been whoopin’ ace on a ton of artsy projects including his mural work over at Boulder Digital Works with Mike Scarano.
As you may or may not know, one of the foundational elements to the Denver creative community recently closed its doors. For 6 years The Fabric Lab had been throwing fashion related events and art shows while continuously inspiring others to go out and do it for themselves. Their DIY mentality was a driving force for not only Celeste and I but the hundreds of others that would come to each and every show or event.
But alas, this is not the end, but the beginning of the next chapter in Josh & Tran’s creative scurge on the sub-cultural crevices of Denver’s nether-regions. The Shoppe (their cupcake & cereal cafe) is going strong and there are a plethora of other plots, plans and schemes in the works, soon to reveal themselves to the masses.
Celeste has been hard at work on her scheme/ hustle. She’s recently added some delicious new projects to the mix as well as gave the site a tiny facelift. Make sure to check her out on Flickr for most tasty treats.
Etcetera is now available for download on my recently updated site. If you haven’t peeped it yet, you’re behind the times and the only thing you can do to catch up, is to take this font and make fantastical something or other with it. Now get over to Lifter Baron and grab it.
I’m not much for spending money on whatever, but when I see a good pair of sneakers or a book, it’s coming home with me. On my recent trip to Seattle / Portland I came across a multitude of options for both, sneakers and books resulting in a couple purchases here and there.
It’s up and running… Probably a couple things here and there so don’t piss yourselves if something winks back. I spent far too much time in too small a period to not assume I will make adjustments and add more things. Regardless of my weary ramblings, please take a look and pass it on. Thank you my dear readers…
The font has yet to be completed but will be available for download along with other tasty treats as soon as the new Lifter Baron site goes live (hopefully this week). I have plans of doing the numerals as well as standard punctuation in a bundle. Keep your eyes peeled for info on the launch of my new site as well as the date for download on this and more.
Here’s a quick peek at a tasty little collabo between super fantastic sock server, AshiDashi, and the Villain. Look out for updates on this and other delicious side projects and diabolical dealings coming up. Muahahahahah!!!
Celeste and I took a quick adventure across the Mississippi to the NE side of Minneapolis to check out what the gentle people of Pink Hobo had up their sleeves this time. The venue has had some really great shows and there was no doubt that this one would have some interesting things to check peruse. We didn’t have much time to stick around and hi-five or slap ass, so we popped in, took some flicks, winked at the DJ and sneaked out the back. We had a 9:15 appointment to catch MOON so our mission was succinct. (Awesome by the way.) If you haven’t, make sure to pop in and take a peek for yourself. It’s most definitely worth a visit.
My soon to be famous wife (Celeste Prevost aka designisfine) and collaborative creative partner in crime has recently been awarded placement in a new business card book entitled Business Cards 3: Designs on Saying Hello. 272 pages of inspiration and somewhere near 1000 illustrations and designs, the 3rd in the series is just as, if not better than the first two. Make sure to check it out. Hi-five loverpants!
So… a month or so back, I was asked by Tony & Tuyet of FM Magazine if I would like to do some live painting during the Launch party for the 6th Issue of FM Magazine. Above is a video filmed by the Lockerpartners documenting all of the events that took place throughout the night. My wife and I both make brief cameos! A huge thanks to the FM crew for bringing me on to paint, the Lockerpartners for the filmed radness, and to the guys over at DVLP Clothing for letting me make sweet acrylic love to one of the walls in their space.
