So I opened my Etsy shop a little over a year ago now, and I honestly don't know why it's taken me this long to announce it here. I guess I was waiting until I had it entirely stocked before I "officially" announced it, but while it's mostly stocked at this point, I finally realized I will never have it entirely stocked. Unless I stopped making things. Which would be stupid.

Also, I finally have a printer with which I can make archival prints, so I've started making and listing prints of my paintings. There will be more of those listings trickling in over the next few months, but if there's a painting that you'd like to see a print of, let me know!

Almost all of my original art is listed there, except for the pieces that are for sale at the Bad Apple. Which, if you're in Portland, you should definitely go to, no matter what. To make it even better, Guapo is right next door.

Lots of things are going on this weekend, mostly having to do with the Stumptown Comics Fest.

  • There is a closing party at Pony Club on Sunday night 4/25. I have a piece in the show.
  • There is probably something else that I’m forgetting.

A portrait show curated by John Isaacson just went up at Guapo. I contributed pictures of my cats, which are part of my collaborative pieces with Jesse Reklaw for Rina Ayuyang’s Pet Project. The show will be up through most of March.

The Bad Apple

I have some art up at the Bad Apple, a magical and exciting store run by Dylan Williams and Tim Goodyear. They sell obscure books and videos and work by local artists, among other things.

My Japanese mythology paintings (from MOME 15) are for sale there, as well as a collection of bird paintings from various shows.

If you’re in Portland and you want to buy some of my artwork, that is the place to go. You should check out the store anyway, though. It’s at 6340 SE Foster Road, just 2 doors down from Guapo.

Bird Hurdler

I did the cover and a two-page comic in Bird Hurdler (sequel to Nerd Burglar), a free comic book from Teenage Dinosaur, Tugboat Press and Sparkplug Comics.

Bird Hurdler is a free comic book of Portland, Oregon comic artists published by Portland-based publishers and printed at Brown Printing (also in Portland).

To celebrate the release on Free Comic Book Day (May 2nd), the artists and publishers will be signing, giving out the book, and presenting their own work at three local comics stores in the early afternoon (12-3pm).

Guapo Comics and Books will have Andrice Arp (Mome and Hi-Horse) and Lisa Rosalie Eisenberg (I Cut My Hair and Monsters Make Stew). Publishers from Teenage Dinosaur, Tugboat Press and Sparkplug Comic Books will also be at the store located at 6350 SE Foster Rd. Phone # 503-772-3638
