Both in their art and their attendant values these artists work tirelessly to sustain cultural entities. They blanket space with meaning and convert square footage into bold proclamations. The music world reaps the rewards of Sonnenzimmer’s subtle, painterly gig posters while the apparel industry appropriate’s Mike Perry’s electric zine hallucinations into backpacks and Nike dunks. Both Dan Funderburgh and Seripop explore the limits of spatial adornment, Dan through the design of delicately intricate wallpaper that balances Moorish mosaic with American op art, and Seripop via enormous street poster collages, a medium they have evolved from their monstrous rock posters and describe as “the ‘skin’ of a city, growing and shedding organically.”

Not long ago the good people at gravis sent me some samples of a luggage collection that I contributed to. The lining pattern is based upon passports and passport stamps. After some recent voyaging I’m happy to report the bag held up well overseas where I grabbed this sweet looking visa stamp. More on this soon.

I made a cuckoo clock you can buy. And by ‘made’ I mean I drew it up. The good people at Furni in Montreal actually did the making and it’s much better for that fact. This is the first in a series of clocks curated by the unstoppable B.Solomon of Kitsune Noir . Thank you, Bobby ! Thank you, Mike ! completely worth the wait.
More information from the Furni site “Neverend is a series of clocks created in conjunction with a select group of incredibly talented artists and designers. Each piece features artwork that is laser-etched onto a 3/8” thick piece of high quality russian birch plywood to create a bold graphic interpretation of the quintessential wall clock. Each installment in the series is limited to 88 pieces and will only be available through furnicreations.com. “

My friend Mike was kind enough to gift me with a stamp he had made after I advised him on the font choice [ egyptienne bold ] . This professional Trodat self-inking “meh” stamp is really useful for labeling things about which I feel indifferent. Here I’ve applied it to some half-baked sketches for a letterpress print I’m working on. Thanks Mike !

From the Factoria de Santos website...
“San Honesto is the patron saint against corruption, bribes and defender of truthfulness. Mission: To make a positive change in the world we have to start with ourselves. San Honesto’s mirror face reflects the image of the person praying to him. Citizens of the world can give San Honesto as a gift to corrupt individuals to awaken a change in consciousness and improve their behavior. If you believe people make miracles happen, start praying to San Honesto for a more honest planet. “
The Facoria de Santos is based in Mexico City, but has been manufacturing new saints for a world that could use a few more. And if looking into the mirror face doesn’t provide quite enough truth, a bottle of the San Honesto fair trade Mezcal should probably do the trick.
Eyelevel BQE is hosting a San Honesto group show starting December 11 Featuring works by myself, Vena2, Ciler, Bang Buro, Dr. Morbito, Monica Ruzansky, Gabriela Alva Cal y Mayor and Luisa Gloria Mota-Velasco.
