NY • NJ • PA

Currently it is cold and raining here in Michigan, and so I thought I would search through my backlog of images from this past summer to see if there might be anything nice to show you.

If you've been following this blog for some months, you might remember my mentioning a harrowing time in June when BFGF, Daniel, Devin and I kept having car troubles trying to get back to Chicago from New York which extended our trip by several days. We hung out, we wandered around, we found free pizza, we thrifted while we waited for the car to get fixed. Here are some pictures from that trip.

It wasn't a totally fun time but now it is a fond memory and maybe a funny story.

Digital Gift Certificates

Just a little note to say that even though I can no longer take orders for posters/prints/postcards, I can still take orders for digital gift certificates. 

I will continue to send these out until Christmas day and after if you are a little bit late. (Totally normal! You're a busy person!)

Studio Tour: Dante Carlos

I've posted about Dante before on this blog so you all know how great my brother's work is and how proud of him I am.  He has this natural ability to take something you never knew you would like and use it to make something you love. It is as if his ideas come out of nowhere but now will be on your radar forever.  There is such a strong sense of play and yet it feels somehow perfectly restrained. It would be remiss of me not to say that so much of his taste and his work has informed so much of mine. 

 Dante describes his process as: "I read a bunch of things online or in books, and then start generating ideas while watching a ton of really bad television, like murder she wrote, or 24. There's a pizza in there somewhere." But that is his practice at its simplest iteration. 

When you walk through his home/studio, you can see his inspiration, reference materials and interests everywhere in stacks of books, prints taped to the wall, his music collection, little interesting arrangements tucked into corners. Everything is surprising, lovely. His collection is of the high and the low -- gay and straight erotica to maps to car engine diagrams to various other cultural debris.  A mixture both strange and informed, just like his work.
