I donated a piece made for the Ridin’ Dirty Show held at Masthead Studios recently. Two young Philadelphians, Jakie Berry and Cerise Kacensky, are trying to raise money so they can participate in the Bike and Build program this summer where they’ll help build affordable housing in the U.S. This piece is a little something inspired by Springtime bikes rides. Rides that I seem to almost enjoy more when it’s raining. I don’t know, after cold, grizzly winters a nice rainy bike ride in Spring just feels good.
On April 2nd we (Chernobyl Collective Arts) held our release party for Bam-Pow at Dock Street. We took the place over, hung up work and had No One And The Somebodies, TJ Kong and The Atomic Bomb, Da Comrade! and Mose Giganticus play during the opening. I also painted a mural installation in the restaurant which is permanent. I’ll have photos of that soon, but feel free to check it out and enjoy one of their freshly brewed specialty beers.
Here are some shots of the zine itself. (I shamelessly took included two photos of my pieces in the zine) The work was an edited compilation of some friends and fellow artists. I executed the design layout, but teamwork does make the dream work. Any feedback is appreciate, brace yourselves for the next issue in a few months. . .
