Printing Griffin!

I've wanted to screenprint a design of mine for a lonnnnng while now — and what do you know, it finally happened. Recently, I got the chance to work with my friend Jake Dugard on this 11 x 14, 3-color limited edition print on Speckletone Starch White French Paper...super-fancy. And, as you can see below, I brought along a camera to document the process. Hope you enjoy seeing the magic happen! Video edited by the awesome JR Ramsey.

Makers Fair Fall 2012

Shreveporters came out in full-force last weekend to support local independent artists at the biannual Texas Avenue Makers Fair  it was a beautiful day and a great time (AND only fifteen minutes from my house). Read on for photos and commentary! Many thanks to Aw, Snap Photography for the use of the images below. More sweet, sweet Makers Fair action here and here.

The Makers Fair volunteers were a huge help  they made set-up and break-down and
everything in between run smooth as silk.
My buddy Travis and his family were in town from Houston, so he and Jonas stopped
by to say hi. Check out Trav's awesome artwork 
Who are the Port City Staches, you ask? Our team is growing some killer facial hair during
the month of "Movember" to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer research.

My talented pals Dylan Hillman and Nathan Treme slinging shirts and posters.
They only wear the masks on days that end in "y".
A quick look at the crowd  there were a ton of folks in attendance and over 160 vendors
this time around.
...and then there was this guy. AND IT WAS AWESOME.
