Our Show at Kafka’s in Vancouver

K-A-MlChmp

We’re finishing up our work, getting ready to hang it tomorrow in time for the opening on Thursday, August 15.

My pieces are all large-scale woodblock-style prints based on the “heavy sky” series I did during Thirty Days Project last November.

Aya’s pieces are large, abstract works based on explorations from her Thirty Days Project work.

We would love to see any of you at our opening event on Thursday night, from 8pm, at Kafka’s Coffee and Tea, 2525 Main Street at Broadway.

Aya is doing her magic catering and Tim Gerwing will be playing his own amazing music, much of which will be based on his own Thirty Days Project work.

Début in Preview

Preview magazine is the go-to resource for gallery shows and art events on the west coast from Portland to Vancouver. We were happy to learn that our upcoming show is listed in their summer issue:

Preview-Mag-2013
A small thing, but it is our first appearance in this well-respected publication.

Free copies are available at most galleries on the west coast.

Kaiju Book: Some Pages

Some very kind people have asked how they can see more of the self-published book of my Kaiju series.

There are two copies currently at different points on the planet, but if you are not within reach of either, I’ll be adding some pieces to this blog over the next few weeks.

Here are four to start:

Printmaking: Further Tests

Land.
11 x 10 cm.

I’m still combining tools, materials and techniques, seeing the results with different subject matter.

These are really fun to do, and I’m looking forward to selecting a set of options and producing a series.

This coming Thirty Days Project is going to be great.

Kaiju: Photobook Work In Progress

I have been editing and compiling my Kaiju pieces into one collection, and have just sent them off to be published in a photo-book .

I’m using the software supplied by Photobook Canada which we used for our Thirty Days Project books.

There are almost 100 pages in the Kaiju book after editing it down. It feels great to get this collection done and I can’t wait to see the book in a few weeks.

It would be amazing to have this kind of thing done for real some day and to be able to offer them for sale on this website.
