POTW Update!

03/28/14

Hello there! Been a little behind on updates. Today marks the 9th week of the Poster of the Week series with this new version of drunk bullwinkle. As of right now POTW#1 and #4 are sold out and there are only two copies of #8 remaining. Thanks for all the support and for following this crazy series. Cheers!

Second POTW is in the store

Poster of the Week Series!

01/17/14

A couple weeks late to the new year but I’m very excited to announce the Drug Factory Press POTW series. For the next 52 weeks I’ll be making an art print of some sort in a tiny edition of 15 which will never be reprinted. Prints will be announced each Friday morning via Instagram and my Bigcartel store. These prints will be sold for $40–a subscription to the entire series is offered until the first print sells out, at which point only individual prints will be sold. The first print goes up Friday January 24th!

I’m humbled and excited to share this short piece about me and what I’m doing at the moment. Shot and edited by some old friends doing cool things too. Cheers!

Holiday fair season

12/02/13

It’s that time of year again! Find me at Renegade Craft Fair this coming weekend (Dec. 7-8), Rebuilding Exchange‘s Holiday Fair Friday Dec. 13th, and finally at Peanut Gallery‘s Holiday Sale on Dec. 14-15. At each of these I’ll be selling concert posters, art prints, shirts, and other assorted nonsense. Among the new prints I’ll have is a 12″ x 16″ 3-color art print of the my painting that’s installed at the California CTA station here in Chicago. It’s also available here.

Low-Dose No-Doz

My second solo show opens tomorrow night at Johalla Projects in Chicago from 7–10 pm. “Low-Dose No-Doz” features 8 new paintings, 2 sculptures, and a small book. Lots of stuff coming along in the fall including a tour poster for Iron & Wine, a book cover, and traveling to Austin once again in November for Fun Fun Fun Fest.

Stacked Summer

07/29/13

Been lacking in updates around here. Flatstock 40 was a predictably hot and good time. Now onto August: Showing a painting in Detroit in the Whitdel Arts show “Fuck It,” showing some prints in the Civilian Arts Projects show “Permanent Summer” in D.C. alongside some really killer artists, and I’ll be slinging posters and talking on a panel of some sort in Minneapolis at Autoptic on August 18th. And for those of you in Chicago I have a solo show opening at Johalla Projects on Sept. 6th. No sleep ’til Christmas.

Parson’s

06/12/13

If you live in Chicago you’ve no doubt heard the rumblings about the awesome new chicken/outdoor drinking spot Parson’s. I was lucky enough to be asked to paint the restaurant’s official El Camino and there are some pictures from Claton Hauck floating around the web. You should really see it in person with a $2 Hamm’s in your hand, it looks even better that way.

Gearing up for summer festivals

05/09/13

So far it looks like I’ll be at the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival (Chicago: June 28-30), Flatstock 40 @ Pitchfork (Chicago: July 19-21), and  Autoptic Arts Festival (Minneapolis: August 18). Expect some new art prints, shirts, and fun junk as well as posters for Pitchfork acts Pissed Jeans and Mikal Cronin. Winter is officially dead, let’s party.

The wonderful design nuts/clothiers at Nothing Major posted an interview with yours truly this week. Read my witty and exciting responses here and while you’re there buy something from their shop. They’re always adding cool design items and clothing to the shop like this rad new hat.

The last three posters I’ve churned out are all for shows on April 20th which is also Record Store Day. Speaking of which, Saki has once again asked me to make a commemorative shirt for the occasion. Cats shit in your home and throw up on your bed, but people seem to like them anyway.

Rare butts

03/29/13

My extremely high-brow “Skatebutt” print is sold out until I print a new edition (soon), but in the meanwhile I remembered I made a super limited (12) run of them on chipboard. Available here. Good Friday indeed.

New Website

03/15/13

Welcome to the new site! Way more content to come, but for now enjoy the fact it isn’t the piece of shit it was yesterday. Oh and if your site sucks talk to Matt Soria.

Cheers,
Ryan
