We are getting ready to open our studio for East Austin Studio Tours over the next 2 weekends, November 12-13 and 19-20. Artwork by Sarah Presson, Nick Schnitzer and Jack Murphy will be displayed throughout the house. The property is 2 acres and we couldn’t help but arrange for a stellar party this year – En Route Production’s ‘Happenstance’ will be happening here on November 19th from 7-11pm.
The night will be ablaze with fire hoop dancers, yoga acrobatics, a live, looping violinist, spontaneous poetry, tarot card readings, tap dancing, bonfires roasting Dai Due hot dogs and s’mores, Live Oak Brewing beer, theatrical shenanigans, beautiful visual art, a DJ and dancing, and a bra burning protest. And it’s Free Fun in Austin! FREE! All are welcome! Viva Art!
2016 kicked off with a bang in our studio – we’ve had some outstanding opportunities to create with Austin’s finest this year… Keep it coming!
This was the opener created by Arts + Labor with our poster art. Music by the lovely and talented Adrian Quesada – from his new Echocentrics album Echo Hotel. Hitting the scene in May 2016.
Two of my pieces have just been accepted in the People’s Gallery 2016 Exhibition. Look for these on the walls of City Hall in 2016!
Both of these works were born from a collaboration with Nick Schnitzer – part of a series we created after our trip to India in 2014.
Kirby and I just returned from a 9-day inner city retreat in New York.
We traveled north to Hudson and the Catskills, stopped at the Center of Sacred Mirrors along the way, visited Coney Island and caught up with friends from college.
Most people wouldn’t consider New York a retreat, but it can be… if you can slow down and simply observe the chaos.
This was our 4th year at the Global Youth Peace Summit, but my first as a counselor.
I spent the week alongside some of our world’s most incredible and encouraging youth. Throughout the week we developed strong relationships and respect for each other and our respective cultures.
Big thanks to the Amala Foundation for allowing us to be a part of something so powerful. I have so much love for this community!
We have been teaming up with the folks at Urban Roots to evolve their brand and step up their even collateral. Misha illustrated a series of veggie icons that really helped amp up the color and tied everything together.
The event was beautiful. The food was ethereal. And the youth were empowered!!! It doesn’t get much better than that 🙂
Its been 5 years since I designed the Design Build Adventure website and it’s time for a little refresh. The original site has been showing its age for a while now and the responsive new site is well past due. Please enjoy the work of our dear friend Jack Sanders’ and his motley crew at the all new designbuildadventure.com.
Commissioned for Bob and Michaela Hachtel – this 6ft. piece was started in March of this year and began as a watercolor and ink wash. It slowly evolved into a mixed media piece. As I looked for clarity in foreground plants, I moved from detailed ink drawing to collage then added pressed grasses and leaves.
