Another month of pandemic-era work has included a LOT of work behind the bar at Porchlight, but also some fun design projects.
Early in the month I released a series of four 8" x 10" screen prints: a little bit of a punny play on my favorite "Washington" abbreviation, a little reading and coffee-drinking guy, a romantic night drive and a motel. They're all available over at Porchlight Design Co. for the oh-so-low price of $15 each.
April brought the release of the latest Mid Seattle and to promote the new issue, I made a weird little stop motion video and took some photos. I recorded the background music from home as well. Volume 4 features the Pacific Science Center, which is one of my all-time favorite places in the city, designed by Minoru Yamasaki who graduated from Garfield High in the 30s. You can grab a copy at Porchlight, or online at midseattle.com or Porchlight Design Co.
Across the world, pandemic-relief funds are gathering donations, but not many folks are raising money for small DIY spaces–but luckily, The Vera Project is doing just that. Makeshift venues are important safe spaces for all-ages music and give a voice to those that deserve to be heard. I designed this poster for Vera's event featuring a whole bunch of lovely musicians playing from home in order to raise money for Seattle's DIY spaces. The event was a big ol' success and raised over $10,000.
Stay Inside The Lines has made a downloadable coloring book to keep folks occupied during their time at home. I adapted a poster I made for Sera Cahoone a couple years ago into a timberwolf coloring page. You can download the book right here.
Lastly, some of my favorite photos of the month...
