I'm in Minneapolis for a wedding, and had a moment to visit this mural from a couple of years ago. Still one of my favorites from the #endangeredspeciesmurals series. #art #mural #streetart #migration #migracion #monarch #butterfly #justseeds

This is the first print I made on a letterpress, and it inspired a variety of new directions. Three wood blocks, lots of transparent base, geometry, and predation. I'm setting aside the month of July this year to try to delve deeper into this sort of printmaking. This print is up on @justseeds!

When you produce a calendar, you should start in May. Planning for the 2018 Justseeds/Eberhardt Press organizer got off to a great start today, and I thought it would be neat to look over the last eight versions we've made. Looking forward to September assembly! #art #print #organizer #politicalart #justseeds @eberhardtpress @justseeds

Looking through the flat file drawers, thinking about things to redress and reprint. July is going to be all about camping and printing new editions, just need to pick out destinations and details.

Shrugged my shoulders and went back to Lake County. This fellow and I are looking out over the Warner valley from the front range of the Hart Mountain Antelope Refuge.

Just sent three new prints off​ to @justseeds, quick and dirty split fountain graphics. Income from these will fund future propaganda parties in Portland, keep an eye out on the site!

This is one of the four panels from my installation at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, a scene from the deep ocean- a collage of cut paper and block prints on a 48" circle of masonite. Hydrothermal vents in the lightless depths support communities of strange and wonderful animals, and unfortunately are also sites of intense mineral concentration- and so there's a desire to mine the shit out of them. This is the ultimate NIMBY situation, so far from our ken and so incomprehensible, but we owe it to deep time to destroy capitalism before it destroys these places. Pitchforks up, torches lit.

I learned to drive this winter, after I got back from Standing Rock, and bought myself a car. Not really sure anymore why I never drove- it was more the power of inertia than it was any political position, that and a moderate terror of machines. I just returned from the first ever road trip that I drove myself on- from my art show in Newport down the coast to the land where I used to live, up through the high volcanoes to hot springs and dry calderas in the sagebrush steppe. It was strange and wonderful to be so many places all by myself. Every other time that I've been somewhere far from the city, it's been with other people. It's magic.

Lo, I have hewn this from the forest. Little log cabin is doing alright- fourteen years old this year.

One of my favorite spots on the entire West Coast. #darlingtonia. #mustachioedmeateatingplant

"Bereavement", a collaboration with @swoonhq, hanging at the Newport Visual Arts Center along with a ton of other new work. I'll be blathering about all this stuff this afternoon at 6 if you happen to be in town. Show's up for a month!

Installed at the Hatfield Marine Science Center! A four-panel piece looking at some of the parts of the ocean most affected by human activity. Copepods and Pseudonitszchia on top- marine microorganisms that are drastically affected by warming seas, and the deep sea (left) and reef (right) environments at bottom, one threatened by mining, the other by bleaching and by acidifying waters. Bottom right is a collaboration with @swoonhq. Details to come- but meanwhile you should put the Hatfield center on your list of places to visit- they have chimaeras!
