A few portrait illustrations I’ve produced using digital and traditional processes.

Portland’s creative class has a strong affinity for all things DIY, and zine culture is no exception.  For the last 13 years the Independent Publishing Resource Center has been helping artists and writers of all kinds put indie ink to paper in Portland’s SW.  This month the IPRC starts a new chapter; crossing the river and growing into its new space in southeast Portland.

To help them celebrate, and for a chance to say goodbye to the old space, folks are gathering at Sizzle Pie (west), March 14th from 7pm – 10pm.  The event will also serve as the release party for the appropriately themed Stumptown Underground #21, Memory & the Past.

The art of dang is proud to be included in this historic anthology with this ink and digital piece, “time.”  Check out what the kids are up to at the IPRC and Stumptown Underground!

Here’s a look at some the painting and sculpture projects that I’ve had the pleasure of working on for Portland’s own ACME Scenic & Display.

The Ice Age Exhibit at The Columbia Gorge Discovery Center in The Dalles, Oregon features this life-size mammoth, easily one of the largest pieces I’ve been a part of.  Scott Foster, the immensely talented local artist and proprietor of good: a gallery, sculpted the maquette for this piece.

The Happy Hollow Park and Zoo in San Jose, California had a massive scenic and signage redesign including these happy critters who now live in the children’s play area and gift shop.

This Nike retail display was my first professional interface with the brand giant; a resume requirement regardless of industry for any Portlander.  Shown on the right installed at Jack’s Surf in Huntington Beach, California.
