Fundraiser for Jonathan Reynolds Help Fight Cancer

No comments:

Alison Fujimoto contacted me the other day to help spread the word and help with her husband's (Jonathan) fight with cancer who is battling Stage IV rectal cancer. He was immediately dropped by his insurance (claimed a pre-existing condition) and bills have risen to over $100,000 in only four months of chemo treatments. He still has 1 more month to go before 5 weeks of radiation and then surgery to remove the primary tumor and mets in his liver.  Many artists and galleries have begun promoting his gofundme page at and are sending prints to auction on ebay to raise some money, and the fundraiser will begin today and will run until they have no more prints to list. They will be found here: An Auction for Jonathan Artists include Laurent Durieux, Eine, Fairey, Mau Mau, Ansin, Edmiston, and Faile. About 30 more prints will be posted as they become available in the next few weeks. Here is the the thread on ExpressoBeans for the prints to be auctioned off. Also the members on Daves Posters are listing items as well.

Tim Doyle has also thrown his support behind the effort as well.

Details from Tim

I’ve never met Alison, and most likely never will. I don’t know her, but she is a person in need. And that’s all that matters. 2013 has been very, very good to me and my family- while at the same time being very cruel to so many others. I want to pass on my good fortune to her and help out. And to do so, I am donating 100% of my cut of my print sales from the recent ‘Evolution’ exhibition in Chicago to Alison. I’ve instructed Brian Merel of the Merel Gallery that when the show closes, whatever funds that would have been going to me- to pass those on to Alison instead, in the form of a check. I’m not going to lecture in detail on the unfairness of our Health Care system here in the US, or how medical bills are the leading cause of bankruptcies any more than I just did in this sentence. But what I will say is- if you’ve had a good year, good fortune, or just want to pick up some art and feel good about it at the same time, buy something or donate directly.

So visit the Merel Gallery Website HERE and pick those prints up- get some good art and help out a good family in need.

Also- for the remainder of the year (through December 31st at midnight Central Time) 50% of all sales of my prints on the Nakatomi Site will also be donated to Alison. That means all the prints in the DOYLE SECTION HERE.

If you want to make a donation, but don’t like Tim's art (that’s okay, really) you can do that directly HERE, on Alison’s GoFundMe page.

There’s a lot more info on Alison’s gofundme page, do check it out.

Tatiana Suarez Happy Happy, Joy Joy Print and Original Artwork

No comments:

Tatiana Suarez's charming style is distinctive -- the trademark eyes draw the viewer into a beautiful and surreal world. Rich with symbols that stem from her Brazilian and El Salvadorian heritage, subjects appear as if they are under water, frozen in lovely stillness. For her latest 1xRUN she has returned with Happy Happy, Joy Joy an homage to one of her favorite 90s cartoons.

"This piece was inspired by Ren & Stimpy, which I loved so much growing up. The idea for this piece came about after watching some of their most recent Lost Episodes. These are much grosser, risqué and perverse versions of the show, geared towards adults rather than children. They weren't as great as the past episodes, but it still sparked inspiration for a a piece. Also, the fact that my dog is the embodiment of Ren, it's an idea that's been floating around for while now. The original painting itself is no longer available, it sold very recently during Art Basel a few weeks ago. This was the first piece in a long time that I started for myself, not for any shows. It was meant to be a fun, experimental piece, full of more expressive brush marks and a complex composition." - Tatiana Suarez

 Happy Happy, Joy Joy and some original work will all be on sale Saturday at NOON EST at

Shark Toof Guilty Pleasures Prints Release

No comments:

Shark Toof is back at 1xRUN today with a series of 3 prints titled Guilty Pleasures.

"The name Shark Toof and the original Shark Toof Icon were developed at the same time. With my Graffiti Art roots, I know how important it is to establish and own a tag name, and more importantly an image to remind the viewer of that tag name.

After a good full year of establishing the Shark Toof Icon on the streets, I didn't quite know where I wanted to move the Icon. It took some isolation to really stand behind my own beliefs without becoming a political artist. Thinking of iconographic shapes, I thought the cigarette pack is an easily identifiable shape which lead me to the idea of "Guilty Pleasures" and the Shark Toof Cigarette Pack. Although, I am not a smoker myself, I support every individual to indulge in whatever pleasures them as long as others aren't effected.

The Shark Toof Slot Machine was a natural progression as the slot machine is also an iconographic image on its own. The twist on the image is that the jackpot are cigarettes which ties into the Shark Toof Cigarette Pack print. In other words, by indulging in your guilty pleasure, the jackpot will be more guilty pleasures. I think the main selling point on these was to make them as sexy, flashy Old Las Vegas swank!" - Shark Toof

All 3 prints are 18 x 24 Inches Screen Prints on 140lb Archival Fine Art Paper

All 3 will be on sale today at NOON EST at

Chuck Sperry Widespread Panic Atlanta Poster New Years Eve 2013

1 comment:

Details from Chuck Sperry on his beautiful Widespread Panic poster for the Atlanta show on New Years Eve.

Here’s the poster I’ve been hinting about on my website, on Instagram and through Facebook since December 11 (here).

I set aside the entire month to work on my poster for Widespread Panic New Years Eve. Starting in late November, I have been working diligently on my poster design for Widespread Panic’s New Years Eve show. Months ago, Widespread Panic asked for an asian themed poster. I answered that I am very influenced by Japanese art, and that I would love to create a Japanese styled poster for the band.

I own an original Hiroshige, I have it hung right above my drawing board. It is my talisman, a beacon to guide me to work harder, an acme to reach for. I have pored through literally hundreds of Japanese prints over the years, until I have gotten good at distinguishing the different artists, 17th, 18th and 19th Century prints from each other, and in the process learned quite a lot about Japanese prints. One general idea I respond to in the history of Japanese printmaking is: the prints were produced and sold to the broad general public. Editions were very limited, usually 200 prints were produced, the woodcut technique limited edition size; the blocks would become ink-soaked, water-logged and distorted if more than 200 prints were produced. This also matches my belief that my prints should be as limited as possible, popularity of the band or event permitting.

I love the handling of space in the classic Japanese woodcut, the use of tight composition, and the use of pattern to break the space and add interest. One would have, no doubt, noticed this approach in my design and printing by now. I love the dynamism of the line work in Japanese art. Again, my love of this line quality carries through most of my work.

I worked on the sketches and preliminary designs in late Novemeber, started to create all the pattern designs and ink drawings into poster form from Dec 1 through Dec 11. On December 11 I started dropping hints in public, posting a cherry blossom photo on Instagram and posting a cherry blossom video on my website and linking it to Facebook.

I felt it would be a nice surprise, to break from the themes that I have been working on lately. To make this poster a surprise.

My poster is inspired by the 17th Century concept of Ukiyo-e (literally: floating world) “living only for the moment, gazing at the moon, snow, cherry blossoms and autumn leaves, enjoying wine, women and song, and in general, drifting along with the currents of life…” according to the Buddhist priest Asai Ryoi, the famous Japanese author. I portray a geisha playing a shamisen. A visual pun has this traditional musical instrument plugged discreetly into an amplifier hidden behind a screen (the cord runs from the shamisen under the screen and is plugged into the amp). I felt that this affirmation of carpe diem (seizing the moment) would be an appropriate note to strike at New Years, and a good note to ring us into 2014.

Most of this poster was color to color registration, where all six colors meet without being hidden by the black lines. In fact the black line only delineates between differing patterns, but does not hide or mask where the colors meet each other. I aspire to make a pure kind of print, where the technique is shown, and the artifact of printing is apparent, not hidden by black ink placed over where the colors are meeting. It’s an expression in form of clarity.

I created four custom patterns for my poster (see below). Three run as themes throughout the design, and the fourth, the cherry blossom pattern has four sub-patterns that interlock throughout it’s design. One note about the cherry blossom pattern, is that there are about 75 individual cherry blossoms in each repetition (not counting buds), and my custom geometrical patterns behind the blossoms are interlocking, repeating with each reiteration of the blossoms. The cherry blossom pattern was in itself many days of designing.

Widespread Panic, New Years Eve 2013

Edition of 625
6 colors on archival cream paper

Widespread Panic will release this poster at their show in Atlanta on December 31, 2013.
