The fine folks at WeMake in Portland put on a little poster show to coincide with their annual birdhouse fundraiser. The theme if this poster show was “Celebrate Making”.
My illustration was an attempt to talk about the two most rewarding and most contracting aspects of making. 1). That simple, single idea at the beginning that brings the most basic elements together (In this illustration, it’s the fire, water, anvil and steel: the basic tools of a blacksmith). 20. And the end result: the glorious, complicated, detailed work-of-art that comes from combining the simplest elements with the magic of an artist (the intricate chain mail and suit of armor).
This poster in all it’s WeMake orange, blue, and yellow glory; along with an amazing series of others, can be purchased through WeMake here »

Dudes! We don’t just talk the talk, we’re walking the Big Cartel walk too. By that we mean, some of us BCers have our own super awesome shops where we operate as working-artists. Case and point, our own Dan Christofferson, aka Beeteeth. He’s been working hard behind the scenes to get some new works into his shop, and today’s relaunch does not disappoint.
