long time no update. i actually have a movie print making its way through the approval process, plus some smaller things printing, my goal is by years end to have two movie prints available, an artprint, some sticker stuff and handbill stuff, and a lunar calendar. not all at the same time, but spaced between now and then. so stay tuned if you’re on my mailing list.

til then, heres some links that caught my eye. my buddy tom sends me lots of links, so thanks to him for some of these.
- blade runner cuts / blade runner dos
- cameron on aliens
- trailers Border & Vice. man that vice one, thats how you cut a trailer.
- my buddy kyle posted a pretty neat process video. he’s the king of beer labels.
- some inspiring art: al parker / charlie allen
- longtime portlander will vinton has passed away. local legend.

thanks for all the kind words recently, always appreciated. our family lost our Uncle Chuck today, not suddenly but taken far too soon at 74. as i grow older, my role models start passing, and he was one of them - gave great advice, loved people, loved listening, loved fishing (he was famously a catch & release guy). served as a captain in vietnam, worked for Washington State’s Fish and Wildlife service almost his entire life, volunteered as a CASA worker. incredibly gifted with woodworking. our neighbor. just an amazing human being (or “wonderful” as he’d say). my kids love listening to this on repeat and today it struck me how much Life really is the greatest show, and he was part of our show. seeya on the other side, Chuck.

hey all, its that stressful time of year again. i have some prints for sale, go here to read more info.

i actually have a few different things going on, so definitely if you have a chance to peruse that whole blog post, give'r a read through.

edit: looks like some prints have already sold out. always worth mentioning, bands only let me sell a very limited amount. they sell the majority of the prints at the show. i wish i had more prints to sell, i like making money sometimes, but i only have what i have, when they're gone they're gone.

edit part II: hopefully sarah has been responding or will respond to any queries, i usually stop checking emails during sales  because i have whats known as 'weak constitution' when dealing with people that may be upset. so sarah deals with the emails, good and bad, while i watch Fright Night on the tv. that Brewster, he's so cool. anywho, sales pretty much over, this will continue through the night (but no more surprise drops). make sure you check out this letterpress, printed in the hills of hockinson by adventure storeys, i think it'll be a nice one. they also printed this one, awhile back.

captains log 0144

hey all - just a heads up that this week i'll be sending out a mass email regarding poster sale stuff. no reason to keep hitting refresh, the email will arrive and all will be well. if you're interested in a poster i mean. it's ok even if you're not interested, i think.

til then, enjoy the apocalypse.
- rip harlan ellison. this advice from him has stuck with me for years as a freelancer. too real.
- batman ninja. yeah, nuts.
- yer war face.
- interesting article on those that died at mt st helens.
- jurassic park vehicle replica. nuts.


captains log 0143

well shoot, i'll have a sale eventually, sorry about the delay. soon as i finish a poster, i'm like 'lets do it!' then another poster deadline crops up and the kids are wrapping up school and sarah can't ship stuff and it all goes to arizona. i'll go bankrupt eventually.

BUT, its in the works, probably not next holiday week, but definitely the week following, TREY, KENDRICK, IMAGINE, FOO F'ers, another band, art print, some older stuff to pay for dog vet bills. it'll happen! it has to, right?

til then, enjoymo
- average & expert. didn't love that movie but that guy can frame a shot.

i've had a few emails about trey and foo fighter prints, they only let me sell a fairly small amount, so i figured i'd save up prints to have a sale worth checking out, if that makes sense. appreciate all the emails though! soon, soon.

also - unrelated (or related) - i'll have some older prints for sale down the road as well, my dog iggy had some serious medical issues and it was either spend more money than a person should spend on a dog or realize that everything is temporary and there are more important things in this life than household pets that have lived to the ripe age of 9. so yeah, i got some credit card bills to pay. iggy's fine though, so there's that.

til then, smoke em if you got em.

greetings from the year 2018. or for the dyslectics out there, BLOZ. its going to be a good one, i can feel it. course i liked 2017 as well, even though everyone tells me it was terrible. i've got two kids on the swim team, sarah started selling her paintings, my friends continue having new babies, we've continued being blessed as foster parents, i can't complain. sure there's bad stuff, but that's every year in the history of the earth. as monty python says....

anywho, hopefully everyone has a great 2018, keep my uncle Chuck in your prayers with health related issues, get some travels under your belt, one year closer to the apocalypse.

captains log 0131: Fire Sale

UPDATE NUMERO TWO: sale is winding down, just calendar preorders left, and those will end tomorrow (thursday), so thanks again for all the orders and kind words. important note: if you requested a shipping refund and don't get one by end of thursday, drop us a note, sarah's taking care of them currently. lotta figuring stuff out on her part, we can't combine all orders because somethings (pins) don't ship great with other things (posters), so its kinda a balancing act, what can ship together and what can't. appreciate your patience and if you don't get a refund by friday, drop us a note.
UPDATE: hey, thanks for the orders, hopefully everyone's having an ok experience with that new store. sarah's going through emails and trying to get back to people as soon as possible. let us know if you see specific problems. til then, this is great. great job joe.
so, i have a bunch of stuff for sale, head over here to check it out. i actually have two stores, one with posters and one with pins and patches and other smaller items perfect for stocking stuffers. and let me tell you, any kid under the age of, like, 18, is going to be bummed to get those as stocking stuffers.

let me know if you have any questions, i tried to set things up correctly but its a lot to manage, and sarah usually runs the sale itself while i run off into the woods. if you see a weird shipping cost, or accidentally purchase two of something you meant to purchase one of, let us know and we'll get it fixed. thanks again for the years of support, means a lot to me and my family.
