The People in My Neighborhood

A few months ago, David Huyck asked me if I would design a print for the first edition (Volume 2) of his ongoing Cloudy Collection project. The latest edition went on sale moments ago (Noon ET, 9am PT), and includes a set of 4" x 6" letterpress prints by 7 AMAZING artists: David Huyck, Dustin Harbin, Scott MacDonald, Laura Park, Claire Robertson, Dave Taylor, and myself. Read all about them on our bios over --> here.

This edition is available to purchase for $35
(free shipping US & Canada!!) -->

Cloudy Collection (Volume 2 Edition 1)

A portion of the sales will go to The Nature Conservancy.

You can also subscribe to receive all 4 editions in Volume 2 (to be released this year), and receive a cool t-shirt designed by David Huyck and Chris “Elio” Eliopoulos.

Each edition is a limited run of 100 print sets. Here's an example of the first edition from a year ago which sold out pretty quickly. We all work in the same color palette (light blue and charcoal), with a theme—this one being "Who are the people in your neighborhood?"

I had a blast working on this drawing. These guys are my friends! I inked it with a brush pen on paper, and prepared the color plates in Photoshop. You know, it's odd that the colors ended up being so close to the blue/gray/white palette of my Jinx the Monkey website. It makes the "neighborhood" that more familiar to me.

Here's a photo of the actual print:

Congratulations to everyone involved–I can't wait to receive my copy of the edition. Remember, there are only 100 sets! Maybe one of them has your name on it.
