Haus of Godspeed

The other day, my friends over at the Haus of Godspeed, opened their studio to the public. A tour of the whole building revealed that a furniture store on the first floor and art studios on the second floor, with multiple art collectives and creatives inhabiting the art space. The Haus of Godspeed belongs to multiple creatives that I’m fortunate to know. They all have a strong bond and relationship having known each other for years, each with their own creative niche. When you walk in, you can see that each person’s space is catered to each individual’s personality and craft. With friends and fellow creatives around you, it’s hard not to be working on something and after only a short time in their space, they’ve made a lot of progress. More…

35/365: Ontask Family Show @ The Gaskill

The Ontask Family show at the Gaskill was a great success. There was a great turnout, thanks to everybody who came out and supported. Friends and strangers alike came through and looked at what we had up, the love was tremendous. If you weren’t able to come through the opening, I believe our work will be up for another month. It doesn’t stop there though, we have another show coming up the 17th, details will be out soon! More…

27/365: Mike Giant

Mike Giant from Rebel8 came to the school to talk art and graffiti. None of the guest talks have really interested me than this one. Anyways, he showed us a catalogue of his extensive graffiti work from around the world, throughout the span of give or take 20 years. What I really got from the talk was that for every piece, he had a story, a memory behind it. That’s truly something that appealed to me, that everything he had done had some meaning to him, that it meant that much to him to photograph every piece and remember every story that came along with it. That’s definitely how art should be, not a mindless activity to create something out of nothing, but to have it mean something to you.

23/365: Epiphanies

To my surprise, my first day at Writing for Artists and Designers has provided some insight, self-realizations, and epiphanies. We were told that we would have to form an artist statement of some sort over the course of the semester and to start the class off, we wrote short answers on various aspects of the life an artist and designer. In no way do I believe that I am an expert of some sort, nor do I write this in hopes to preach to whoever reads it. I simply thought that sharing the thought behind the way I think would greatly aid those who try to understand Happen. More..
