I have recently expanded my online vending presence to the music webzine http://www.cvltnation.com’s designer marketplace, Cvltnation Bizarre. You can buy a limited selection of my work there as well. It’s proved to be a good move so far, and during the month of May I have reduced prices on patches to $2 (available through Etsy for the regular price of $3. The audience at CvltNation is certainly more directly in touch with the aesthetic I have been cultivating in the images I print. Natural History, Morbid Anatomy and Deathpunk Streetwear. So visit their site and have a look at some of the other vendors they host, many of which make and sell a lot of enviable wares.
The 3rd bi-annual Meow Day was Sunday May 24th, and thanks to my good friends at TheSkullNextDoorNY for representing for me while I was working with Obscura Antiques. The event was held at The Silent Barn, in Bushwick Brooklyn.
“Meow Day is an event for cat enthusiasts, crafters, activists, and rescuers to celebrate their love of cats while supporting local TNR & adoption efforts!”
Adoptable cats & kittens from A Tail Of Two Kitties, DJ, Meowmosa Cocktails, and vendors supplying vintage and handmade, especially cat-themed objects, like the Anatomic Cat Skull patches that I print.
TheSkullNextDoor and I have been working together since 2009 in Milan Italy, selling jewelry and accessories together at markets and collaborating on projects together like our limited line of Bottle Imps. Their jewelry is made of bone, tooth and claw combined with jewelry and repurposed metals and findings, woodwork and these great jawbone bone handled knives most recently.
