Tag Archives: The Shroom

Here’s a Haiku about getting ready to live in a temporary city in the middle of the Nevada desert:

you can smell the dust
on your hands and all over
packing up the car

The last time I found myself in that situation I was pleased to have already contributed some dang art to Burning Man 2011.

Black Rock City’s “Least Best” Newspaper The Shroom asked me to work up DJ Passive Aggressive for the two on-playa issues:


My partner and I had fun painting two side panels and a stair riser for Portland’s ThunderBridge; one of 22 regional collaborations for Burning Man’s Circle of Regional Effigies (CORE), and with all of them burning together, one of the largest fires I have ever seen.

thunderbridgeI volunteered with the ARTery department, mostly as field-ops (kind of like Placement for art).  Before the event they took submissions for logo design’s and the ARTery staff selected these dang designs for the team and for the 2011 event:

Last but not least, it was an honor to design Black Rock Spatial Delivery’s shwag for the “Rites of Passage” theme:

I’m happy to have provided some dang art to so many of my favorite people and groups that have been throwing down in the desert for years.  Thanks to the Portland C.O.R.E. crew for doing most of the work and letting me steal three panels for thier bridge.  Thanks to ARTery for the excuse to chat up artists and for letting the new guy draw their logo.  Thanks to The Shroom for my first published comic strip. Thanks to BRSD for being the best camp on the playa, and huge thanks to k8 for all of her patience, help and visual expertise.
