Updates and New Design!

It's been pretty busy around artbymags.com-land lately, which, frankly, feels really good. I seem to have finally hit that critical mass of traffic between this site and my Etsy shop that has orders rolling in regularly, and when stuff is flying out the door, it inspires me to want to make more!

To that end, I have been wanting to make a design of some sort to pay homage to the NOLA Rising campaign I reference so often via this blog and with which I feel aligned and part of, even though I'm not in NOLA right now to be partaking in. With the success of the concept of doing stencil prints on paper via my Obama design, I was inspired to make a NOLA Rising stencil design specifically meant to print on paper or wood (as opposed to tshirts or a clock). To that end, this is what I came up with:

nolarisingstencil

This particular piece is on debris-pile scrap wood from NOLA. I've made a few more prints on paper that I will be uploading to my Etsy shop for sale later today, but this wood piece I am sending down as my entry in the "It's Yours, Take It" art show that's happening next Saturday, June 7th at a currently undisclosed location in the Marigny. Stay tuned to the NOLA Rising blog for more info as to the location, and get all the current details here. (It's not too late to enter it - contact ReX via the above links for info.)

In spoke card updates, they continue to heat up the blogosphere, from coast to coast , including Politico.com! They were even mentioned by Shepard Fairey in an interview he did with the Washington Post! At last count over a week ago, more than 800 had been shipped out via the website obamaspoke.com, and thousands more were hitting indie bike shops around the country. Folks in New Orleans can stop by Bicycle Michael's and ask Tim for them - I sent down a stack last week. And folks in Louisville can still get theirs at Derby City Espresso downtown, or from me directly.


One last quick think, for now - mark your calendars, Louisville, as I'll be having my last official public festival appearance in late June (the 28th to be exact) at the Germantown Shotgun Festival. I'll be hauling out all my wares and sharing tents with a few of my sister Louisville Craft Mafiosas, who are trying valiantly to resuscitate the Mafia here under new leadership. More details about this event coming later, but just wanted to get it on your calendars for now.

OK. That's a lot, I know - almost like writing a newsletter. Hmm, maybe I ought to do that, since way more people read my newsletter than this blog... guess I better get on that!
