Renowned Japanese artist Usugrow is releasing a book with Upper Playground, and will be signing copies at their San Francisco location this Sunday. The artist is also busy finishing work for his solo show “Inkflow” opening at Fifty24SF Gallery on October 4th. He might be my favourite letterer of all time. Have a look at some more process images below.
I’m excited to finally announce our “Drawing On The Past” project with Herschel Supply will end in style next Thursday, October 2nd, with a gallery show at Burrard Arts Foundation (108 East Broadway). We will be packing in as many of the incredible submissions as we can fit. The show will run until October 5th. Beverages will be provided by Vancouver Urban Winery and Postmark Brewing.
If you plan to attend please RSVP the Eventbrite HERE. We may get really busy so there may be a line at some point during the night. If you’re on the list you’ll have an easier time getting in.
I also want to officially announce the winners of the very special Booooooom x Herschel Supply bags. Congratulations to the three on the flyer above: Lucy Drury, Maria Nguyen, and Mallory Lucille Rose. I know I said there’d be three winners but I actually picked a fourth winner, Rachel Hines. Her submission below is maybe my favourite of the entire project. There were many beautifully rendered portraits of people, places, and things but I was struck by the small moment that Rachel described. This is what a drawing made of honest lines looks like:
Thank you to everyone who submitted a drawing and shared a story. It’s going to be a really amazing show, we’re displaying all the drawings on custom made clipboards. I hope to see lots of you there! Following the show I will post an online gallery of all the digital submissions we received so stay tuned for that as well.
Once again, if you wanna come to the gallery show next Thursday, 6PM, October 2nd, please RSVP the Eventbrite HERE.
“Déguisement” is the lead single from Sam Tiba’s Samuel EP. Directors Nick and Chloe provide some stunning visuals for the track. Watch it below.
