Drove to Sacramento today to deliver the artwork for this Saturday’s Gallery Show. Stuck around for a while to watch them hanging the work, took some shots. Should end up looking nice, there will be some new stuff in there along with five large format pieces and some as yet unreleased work that’s just been printed for the first time. All the work is limited edition printed in Giclee on watercolor paper. Try to make it out and say hi…There will also be a live Tycho set and the whole thing is free for all ages. Info
I’ll be battling Rob Cordiner in Layer Tennis Tomorrow. I apparently won the coin toss so I’ll be going first. The whole thing kicks off at 12pm PST (GMT -6), details are here. Should be a good time, you can comment along in the forums of the Layer Tennis site.
I’ll be doing a poster show at Sacramento’s Artisan Gallery this Saturday, 11/10/07. There will be large format Giclee versions of many of my prints on display as well as a lot of 12×18" show posters. All will be for sale along with prints from the shop and t-shirts. Afterwards I’ll be doing a Tycho set with visuals and all. Try to make it out, it’s free and it’s a very cool venue so should be a lot of fun. This will be part of Sacramento’s "Second Saturday" art walk which is always a great time. The show runs from 6-11pm.

Heading back to San Francisco tomorrow after another amazing experience at the OFFF festival. It kept me pretty busy over the past week so I haven’t had much time to post up here or respond to comments, but I will be right back to it once I make it home and get some much needed rest. Again, I want to thank everyone who came out to my presentation, the workshop (pictured above), and the booth. It was great to meet and talk with so many people who are so passionate about design. Hope to see you all again next year.
Today is the final day of the OFFF festival in New York. I want to thank everyone who came out to see my talk on Friday and the workshop on Saturday. I’ll be around all day Sunday so if you haven’t already, stop by the ISO50 booth (right in front, no OFFF ticket needed) and say hi! I’ll also be playing a Tycho set Sunday night at the OFFF after party.
Tickets for the OFFF festival in New York (and, consequently, the ISO50 workshop) have sold out. Sorry to anybody who missed out. I will however have an ISO50 booth with prints, shirts, music etc. in the public area (no ticket required). I’ll be around all 3 days (Nov. 2, 3, 4) so stop by and say hello, ticket or no ticket!
Alternate version of Svenska 2. All you Danes out there please correct my grammar!
The 1971 Print has been reprinted and is now in stock at the ISO50 Shop.
A lot of people have asked me what the significance of the year 1971 is (no, it’s not the year I was born). Hunter S. Thompson’s “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” first appeared as a two part series in Rolling Stone magazine that year. Wikipedia sums up the main theme of the book which was based on these articles:
“It explores the idea that 1971 was a turning point in hippie and drug culture in America, when the countercultural movement no longer had momentum and its innocence and optimism of the late 1960s turned to cynicism.”
This print sort of juxtaposes the design ideals of the 60’s: the earth-tones and swirling, psychedelic, patterns; with the harsh, solid forms of the gothic lettering.
Oh, and also 1971 just looks badass all stretched out like that.
