Teamwork, 2014.
Hi everyone! Here’s something that I made for Gallery 1988’s 10th Anniversary Show, “The Subtle Art of Pop Culture. You can see it and all the other artwork here.
I highly recommend checking it out—there is an incredible variety of work being shown, and I’ve learned about some new artists’ work I want to watch.
As for this piece…around the time I was invited to participate in this pop culture show, Twitch was comeditragically playing Pokemon. Hence, the piece. Twitch Plays Pokemon (and the hype/enthusiasm surrounding it) made me understand sports fans (both e- and regular) a lot more. So many people yelling at the same thing on the internet at the same time! What a glorious wonder. 
Thanks so much to the folks at Gallery 1988 for letting me participate!

g1988:

We’re gearing up for our ten-year anniversary, which is actually this week! Keep in mind, 10 years on Melrose, is like 100 years on other streets. We were recently told the average length of time for a business on Melrose is about 14 months - so don’t mind us if we have a beer at the opening. Speaking of - if you plan on attending the opening reception for our 10 year anniversary show this FRIDAY NIGHT at G1988 (West) - RSVP by emailing rsvpgallery1988@gmail.com. That’s the only way you can get in! It’s an alcohol thing.

For Friday night, we’ve invited back some of our favorite artists from the past ten years to create pieces that subtly involve the pop culture elements our gallery has become synonymous with over the past decade. We figure it’s a good time to scale it back a little, but still have pieces where you have to study to figure out it’s inspiration. And what we’ve seen so far is incredible.

….

We can not THANK these artists enough. Not only for participating in our anniversary show, but for just being with us and supporting our business.

When we opened ten years ago, there were no pop culture art galleries, which we understand is hard to imagine now. When we did our LOST poster campaign, nothing like that had ever existed before. These were uncharted territories and it all could’ve crashed at any moment. But these artists were loyal, professional and excited - and knocked it out of the park time after time. We’re literally only as good as the art we hang - and after ten years, it’s safe to say - the artists are very good.

Join us this Friday night as we celebrate 10 years as the world’s first pop culture art gallery, this time in a slightly muted voice. 7-10 PM at 7308 Melrose Ave.

Hi everyone! I am thrilled to announce that I got to participate in Gallery 1988’s 10 Year Anniversary show! I wish I could be there (alas, representing from the east coast), but if you are in the area do stop by and check out the art!

My piece in Banquet, the Hannibal art book! Got my copy the other day— really impressed/dwarfed by the other artists in it. Great work, everyone!
(I’m putting a #nsfw tag on this one because that seems…prudent.)

I’ll just cut and mat and frame all the prints myself, she says. This definitely won’t make a huge mess, she says.

Things are quiet around here, I know. Got some nasty nerve damage in my arm and neck. Attempting to deal with it.
