"Wayfarer 515" original drawing available

I am auctioning off the original drawing for the recent "Wayfarer 515" print.  It is currently on ebay and can be seen/bid on right here.  Check it out.
All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Israel/Palestine chapter of Physicians For Human Rights.  It is a non profit, non government organization that works to promote health care, solidarity, and non-violence for people in both Israel and occupied Palestine.  More info.

End the occupation.

Flatstock Europe 8 ended with impossibly beautiful weather.  I spent the following day hanging out with other poster artists (including some very awesome newcomers from Mexico City), eating pizza, drinking wine, and seeing Boy Division deafen a tiny club on the Reeperbahn.
I was touched by the generally warm reception I felt in Hamburg.  I spoke with people who had attended or purchased work from our show at Feinkunst Kruger last year or who had bought prints from me at Flatstock in previous years.  I stayed with friends who I realized I don't get to see nearly often enough.
I'm in Istanbul, wrapping up a second long layover here.  I watched Al Jazeera all morning and had some food from a pretty fancy continental breakfast.  
Time to head home!

Bagels, pakoras, architects, tea, and chilly evenings

It's a pretty cold morning in Hamburg, and the last day of Flatstock is upon us.  It's a bit rainy, and I'm sure I'm not alone in hoping that it clears up soon.  It's harder to sell paper to other people when it's raining.
I've been staying with my friend Ralf, sleeping on the couches in the office of his gallery.  As usual, I have been finding lots of great food in this city.  There's a Loving Hut right across the street from the gallery, which for those who are unfamiliar, is an excellent place to get an entirely plant based meal.  I had some excellent spring rolls and a red curry yesterday.
I fly back to Istanbul for another extended layover on Monday, then back to Chicago.  I'll be home for about a week and then I am off to Minot, North Dakota for MSU's NOTSTOCK.  I'm really looking forward to this event, as it sounds like a lot of fun.
For those who have recently ordered prints, I ran into a bit of a schedule overload and was working tirelessly to finish some posters before getting on a plane across the Atlantic.  So, this means I will be shipping all orders out as soon as I get back to Chicago this coming week.  Also, I am going to be posting a bunch of new items in the store on my site this week, as well.

Havuç Suyu!

Greetings from Istanbul!  It's been a while since I've done a post, but I am going to make it a point to start posting more regularly.  I'm wrapping up a long layover in Turkey and am about to head to the airport to get to Hamburg for Flatstock Europe 8.  I'm also drinking some excellent tea right now.  I'll post more tonight!
