Perdition Art Board

Nathaniel Parsons

Perdition Smokehouse in Berkeley has this cool art/chalk board up that is mostly taken up by menu items. But a goodly 12′ x 30″ of space is dedicated to chalk-marker artwork created by a local artist. I had the honor of creating the first piece which you can see below. But my pal Nathaniel Parsons just put up a rather stellar piece. He was preceded by my pal Ashley Hinceman (see below). These are temporary installations, usually up for about six weeks, and chalk markers are fairly challenging to use in some ways. But you can see both artists nailed it!

Xmas Gift for Mom

hex-1

A while back I made some barn hexes for Perdition Smokehouse in Berkeley, CA. Although they came out quite nicely (if I do say so), it’s not my usual type of work. My mom loved them and she had a special request that only a mom could ask. Could I make a hex for her kitchen? Aaaannnnnddddd…. could I make the center of attention her shih-tzu Peaches.

This show at LeQuiVive in Oakland has pretty much ended but I did manage to grab some pics before it came down. Zio Ziegler ahas a number of paintings in this body of work, but I especially dig the drawings.
