Uhh Yeah Dude: Brooklyn 10/17/09

UYD_Final

The most amazing podcast known to man, Uhh Yeah Dude will be recording tonight at Public Assembly in Brooklyn. It was my honor to design a screen print for said occasion(3 color including metallic silver and a glow in the dark orange).  Seth Romatelli and Jonathan Larroquette take it out and chop it up….it’s like greasy sinfully delicious fast food for your ears that’s trans-fat and cholesterol free and is saturated with your daily dose of vitamins and electrolytes…UYD is an experience, a happening, a  phenomena not easy described or explained…All I can tell you is it’s a breath of fresh air, if you have an ipod get on your itunes and find Uhh Yeah Dude in the podcast section, subscribe to that shit. Change your life. It’s free, most podcasts are, there are plenty of great podcasts out there but there is none I would recommend higher than UYD.

I like to think most poster art fans are tech savvy so I apologize if I’m preaching to the podcast choir, but if you don’t know now you know homeboy.

Last Friday, today.

Happy Friday internet, it’s been too long.

I’ve been working overtime at the shop, got a lot of catching up to do here goes: one week ago today was the opening of Something’s Better Than Nothing at the Greenwood Collective. A fine time was had by all, there was a bunch of shit going on at the Collective that night which made it a great time to slide my first ever gallery showing that wasn’t primarily consisted of concert posters. It was a collab show with my pal Owen, big ups to him for helping make this happen and of course thanks to Kate for letting us use the space.

A new art print was created for this show, if you were there you saw it, if not I’ll be making it available online next week….

I didn’t take a load of pictures so I’ll have to get back to the space this weekend or something to take better shots of what’s on the wall. Pieces ranged from stencil work by Owen, collabed screen print/stencil mash up pieces and straight screen prints by me.

Here are the pictures I do have:

No idea who this is, I didn’t take this picture. Now that I think about it there were a decent amount of ladies in the house on Friday and I’m pretty sure I talked to none of them, classic Jon Smith.

A rare photo of Owen, didn’t take this picture either.

That’s all I got as far as photo documentation of last Friday night. Thanks to anyone and everyone who made it out to the show including(NAME DROP ALERT) one Jesse LeDoux. Oh and I forgot Tom Dewar was there too, was nice to catch up with that guy. My roommate Josh was there of course…look at the time internet, I gotta go to work! More updates to come over the weekend and in to next week, I have made some changes to the store, more to come as I say….fuck, gotta run, take care brush your hair.

SOMETHING'S BETTER THAN NOTHING: This Friday(SEATTLE)

Greetings internet. For those of you in Seattle, I officially invite you to join me this Friday night at The Greenwood Collective for the opening of an art show I’m putting together with my pal Owen. There will be new prints, test prints and new prints made from test prints, you’ll have to show up to really see what I’m talking about.

It’s Art Walk this Friday in Greenwood anyway so there will be other folks in the house with purty new art all over the place anyway and word on the street is that Mad Rad are going to be performing upstairs. I have no idea what to expect but it ought to be a fun night.
