Alley Cat Patch, 2014. Linocut on fabric, 5x7”
Vickie and I are getting subconscious messages from each other or something, because I made a cat patch as well. Mine is much less regal. I’ve been referring to this design as “Bad Pussy,” but my mom reads this blog, so…Alley Cat.
Since we’re making patches, this month’s QuickTalk question has us dying to know - what would you name your motorcycle gang?
julia-lavigne: The Black-eyed Susans
stephaniecraneart: The Mad Maxi Pads
jadejohnsonillustration: My gang is The Jive(ing) Turkeys! We have dance battles with rival gangs, and we wear turkey helmets when we ride.
vickie-v: The Moist Menace
flamingolines: Childless Volcanoes - ”Childless” because my gang wouldn’t be tied down by family and “volcanoes” because we’d be wild and contentious. Also it’s a period joke I made one time.
anticipatricia: The Delusions
zoelotus: The Raging Hormones
kentonblogs: Bunch of Timid, Pacifist Bikers Who Just Want to Ride Motorcycles and Not Get into Any Trouble, Please and Thank You.
paige-money: Rattlesnake Queens
emilydraws: This question is so hard for me because I have a motorcycle and actually could use a good gang name… I’ll go with the Daughters of Destruction because I already have a shirt that says that.
jessicaroux: The Harpies
What I’m Working on, August 2014:
1. Hanging out in Colorado and still getting settled. I moved into a new apartment about a week ago and I’m getting part of my room set up as a studio. Photo by gflunchhacker
2. I’ve been invited to participate as an artist at Pallet Fest, Denver’s upcycled arts and crafts event. I scored this pallet and now I have to turn it into art somehow.
Since moving to New York this month I’ve set up my place, caught up with friends in the city and made a visual catalogue of technical illustrations for RedShift, the couture label I was working for in Chicago over the last year.
Above are some of the color tests I ran for the small collection of tee shirts we made along with the reclaimed leather which makes up much of the rest of the label - I’ll be posting some of the images this weekend!
I’ve been working on a t-shirt design, doing the whole full-time thing at an art store, and healing from wounds. A couple random projects on my plate, certainly keeping busy.
