California Society of Printmakers Show at Bridge Storage and ARTSpace

I have a linocut print in the current California Society of Printmakers' show titled, Points of Departure. The exhibition is at Bridge Storage and ARTSpace in Richmond, CA and runs until May 25, 2018. There's a reception on Saturday, May 19, from 3-6pm. If you're interested, you might read the nice writeup of the show in the East Bay Express. Hope to see some of you at the reception!

Mt. Tam T-Shirts, Tote Bags, Phone Cases, Pillows and Cards from Society6

Some of you might remember the linocut print of Northern California's Mt Tamalpais I did a few years ago. Mt. Tam, as it's usually referred to locally, is a classic San Francisco Bay Area hiking spot. It has one of the best day hikes around called the Dipsea - Steep Ravine - Matt Davis Loop Trail, which can include a stop at Stinson Beach.

I'm thrilled to say that this Mt. Tam design is now available on t-shirts, tote bags, iPhone and Galaxy phone cases, pillows, stationary cards for gifts or friends, and other items through Society6.

Working on a new VW Vanagon linocut print
Lately, I've been focused on a new linocut print featuring a Volkswagen Vanagon. It's going to be printed as a 16"x20" poster when I'm done.  Here's a sneak peek of the project.

Making a few minor changes to this linoleum block this morning. Hope to print it later this week. #printmaking #linocut #wanderlust

Lake Tahoe Block Print and T-Shirt

Made some of these Lake Tahoe linocut prints today...good to be back at the press after too long.

Feels good to be back printing. I'll have some of these #Tahoe #linocut prints in my shop in February. #laketahoe #California #travel #printmaking #art #print #artist #outdoors #nature #hiking #camping

Last month, I took the same block and printed a long-sleeve t-shirt for myself.

Airport Code Art Posters for the West Coast

One of my most popular linocut prints over the years has been this small West Coast map. I've always wanted to make a much bigger one and it's finally done. This new map block print features the airport codes of major cities on the West Coast, including San Francisco (SFO), San Diego (SAN), Los Angeles (LAX), Portland (PDX) and Seattle (SEA). The limited-edition print comes in two different colors and was made by the reduction method (on the first block) plus a second block for the text and flight path design.

New Linoleum Block Print - Port of Oakland & Deconstruction of the Bay Bridge

A couple times a week, I'll spot the 77-year old, double-decked eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge in the distance. A new, seismically safer span has been constructed and they're currently demolishing the old section.

I have a soft spot for the aesthetics of the older one and I think it's fascinating to watch how they orchestrate the take down of such a huge bridge. Before it's all gone, I wanted to make a print. It's a project I've been excited about for a while but it took a lot of sketching and planning for it to come to fruition. This is how the linocut print turned out and it's available in my Etsy store.
