Little low on words tonight. But, it’s all good because
1) I’m heading off for four days of retreat–meditation with a small slice of art–tomorrow. No necessito las palabras. Just the cushion and the paintbrush.
2) I got sumthin’ neat to show you.
I went to visit an old friend from high school today. Haven’t spoken in, oh I dunno, eight years. Turns out he’s running a super rad business here in town. Brothers of Industry–check it out! Even the name is cool.
They make furniture that’s like art. They also like art. They also have a store where they like to show art with their furniture.
They’re interdisciplinary. Can you tell?
Don’t these guys remind you of the Pixar lamp? It’s a whole family of adorable handmade table lamps.
In addition to adorable lamps and arty furniture, Brothers of Industry have also started producing handmade vintage-inspired skateboards. To kick their interdisciplinary-ness up a notch, The Bros are inviting local artists to paint one-of-a-kind skateboards for an exhibition at their store.
Guess who’s got a sweet-as, raw-wood, handmade board waiting for an image?
Yup. This girl. That’s mine on top; it’s almost too pretty to paint. But don’t worry, I’ll find a way. See you on the other side, with pictures.
