Great Weekend

APE was really great. Two whole days surrounded by art and artists. First time doing a show not in my studio and we "made table" (covered the cost of the table) on day one. We did spend some of our profits on art and comics though. We had great neighbors and a bunch of friends stopped by. I was so nervous about it being the wrong kind of show for me, but by the end I didn't care. I had too much fun. It's a really great atmosphere to hang out in. I'll do it again if they'll have me back. If you didn't make it out, don't forget I'll be at Artist Xchange this Friday, see last post for details. I don't have any shows planned until Spring. If something comes up I'll be sure to post it as soon as possible. Thanks to everyone for making APE a really great experience. See you next time, Jason

November Events

Well, we have a couple of things going on...

Crittershop Open

You can finally buy my stuff online at Crittershop. Crittershop is my personal online store hosted by Etsy, an online community of artists and crafts people. You can access Crittershop through my new and improved website. If you saw something at my studio, or don't see something you're looking for, email me at

APE Nov 1-2

I will be hocking my wares at APE (Alternative Press Expo) this weekend. I recommend it as a great way to spend the day if you're into independently produced books, art, toys, and stuff. There will be celebs from the indie comics scene (Chris Ware!) taking part in discussion panels. Some of my favorite artists are usually there signing their books. I always spend too much money. Local 303 founder, Josh Ellingson has a table. Come on by and say hi. I am booth 258. For more info check out the APE site.

Artist-Xchange Through November
The nice folks down at Artist-Xchange have given me some wall space through November. There will be a reception on Friday the 7th, 7-10pm. There are a lot of really good artists there. And there are so many great resturants near by you can have a nice night out. I'm just sayin'. The Artist-Xchange is located on 16th between Valencia and Guererro.

Fall Open Studios 2008

I really want to thank everyone who came out to the 303 this weekend. I figured with the election and market the way it is, people weren't going to be thinking about art, let alone buying it. It just goes to show how great of an art town SF is. Great party Friday! Thanks to SOMA FM's very own Megan for tending bar and everyone who tipped her. Thanks to Josh, Matt, and Dave for making the 303 a great place hang out. Most of all thank you Jennifer (my wife) for keeping on top me to actually have things ready for the weekend and for hanging in there while I got ready. I also need to thank Arcadia Custom Framing in San Francisco, so good to me, and the best framers in SF, maybe the world.
My son Dexter had a great time. He smiled the whole time. The whole baby mob was there. Sydney, Lucy, Max, and Wiley all stopped by. We had a special visit from the Drunk Lady that left by way of Ambulance last spring. She was escorted out before she could get a drink and able to leave under her own power. I hope she is OK. Elise from SOMA FM interviewed singer/song writer Django James on Saturday so he hung out. I wish I would've spoken to him. Come back any time. Anyway, I had a great time. Keep checking in and come out and see us when you get the chance. I'll be at Artist X-Change and the Alternative Press Expo in November. Cheers, Jason
