A first time for everything! My art is available on a skate deck!
"Skate or Die: A Macabre Skate Deck Exhibition" at Light Grey Art Lab in Minneapolis, MN is now on view for the month of October! It had a very successful opening night! 60 artists, 60 beautiful works of art, and 60 different gorgeous limited edition skate decks available to purchase (and, very affordable all things considered) on the Light Grey Art Lab online shop here: http://shop.lightgreyartlab.com/ CHECK OUT ALL OF THE BOARDS! REALLY IMPRESSIVE STUFF!
Each skate deck is $65 dollars, but if you’d like just a print of the artwork those are in the $30 range and are available in different sizes. Available in limited quantities for a limited amount of time. The artwork decals are printed, applied, and varnished by hand in the gallery.
Light Grey Art Lab, if you’re not familiar, is an illustration gallery/workshop/event space in Minneapolis, MN, run by a small team of people. New collaborative shows roughly every month feature artists from around the world, with a new and innovative theme each month that always seems to top the last one. A unique part of LGAL’s process is that artists are selected from open calls for art, then the show-specific artwork is created- none of it exists beforehand. Past projects have involved playable video games, zines, published card decks, books, temporary tattoos, sci fi book covers, illustrated jewelry, typographic posters… and, all work from current and past shows (including the free and playable artist colab video games!) is archived and viewable on the LGAL website: http://lightgreyartlab.com/skate-or-die-exhibition/
Items (books, card decks, prints) from past exhibitions are also on the online shop: http://shop.lightgreyartlab.com/ (Artists receive a portion of the proceeds, of course)
Calls for art are open to everyone to apply! (LGAL is a supporter of a range of artists, young/developing artists as well as established ones) These are posted on the gallery blog every so often http://blog.lightgreyartlab.com/ so keep an eye out for them if you’re interested! The application process is simply submitting a name, email, and link to your online art portfolio when the calls for art show up.
