Bashir also makes drawings using salt (which you can see below) but I’d like to request more penguin animations.

It’s my favourite time of year again! Pow! Wow! Hawaii 2017 arts festival is set to take over Honolulu February 11th-18th. The 2017 artist roster has been released (view the list here) and really I’m looking forward to meeting all the artists!
If you find yourself a cheap airline ticket make sure you get out there in time for the massive gallery show on February 12th, curated by Andrew Hosner of Thinkspace. There are close to 100 artists showing work in it (full list here) and the show is always a highlight for me. Also, on February 15th I’ll be doing a talk with one of my favourite artists, Mr. Jago, so maybe come for that too!

Musician Anna Bulbrook (The Bulls, Airborne Toxic Event, and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros) recently launched GIRLSCHOOL, a Los Angeles-based music festival and collective that celebrates female voices. A portion of proceeds from each event go to a girl-positive organization, and this year’s festival (Jan 27-29) will support Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls LA, a 501c3 social justice organization using loud music to nurture self-esteem and self-expression in young girls.
Society6 has joined forces with GIRLSCHOOL to pair up musicians and artists to create visuals inspired by the music, to be displayed at the event. See a few more of the collaborations below!
