We’re really loving the thick, painterly brushstrokes of artist Erin Fitzpatrick. How she creates mood and personality in such a minimal amount of strokes is really refreshing.
Here’s the deal. One of our favorite artists is currently exhibiting at one of our favorite galleries. If you haven’t seen Casey Weldon’s work, or have never been to Distinction Art in Escondido, put this on your “must see” list. Casey’s newest show, Supernatural, is currently on view until May 3rd.
Dane Danner x Gym Standard
Saturday, July 20th from 6-10pm
Celebrate the grand opening Gym Standard (a new kicks store) with an art show featuring one of Yeller’s finest beasts… Dane Danner. Music by Question (analogue studies) and Scott Jones (Creepxotica). No twerking allowed (before 9). All ages are welcomed.
I had the privilege of receiving an advanced copy of The Beginner’s Guide to Running Away from Home by Jennifer LaRue Huget; illustrated by Red Nose Studio. We’ve been big fans of Red Nose studio since we started Subtext, and have even been fortunate enough to feature some of their creations in one of our earlier exhibitions. In this new book, published by Random House Kids, it reminds me of why why fell in love with Red Nose Studio’s work in the first place. I read this whimsical tale to my 5yr old this weekend, and he absolutely loved it. I have a feeling it will be one of those “go to” books for nighttime reading. The writing is fabulous, and of course, the artwork is stunning and unique. If you have kids (or even if you don’t), I’d encourage you to pick up a copy and experience it for yourself! Pick one up here.
