Here's a couple of photos from this year's HANDMADE ARCADE! It was a long day, but fun and filled with a lot of fresh and familiar faces. There were a lot of photo opps and even an interview along with some positive networking. I finally finished updating my etsy shoppe, so if you missed the big day last weekend, you can check in on my 100+ left overs!

More zines!

Finally! I'm officially working on a new edition to the BABYMEAT series! Hoping to have it done before Handmade Arcade at the end of the month!

Also presenting my newest and 7th zine, PGH Can't Drive! Pittsburgh has the absolute worst drivers I have ever seen, and a lot of people agree, so i've vented my frustrations in comic form. Available on my etsy shop & at HA!

Voting has begun for the Pittsburgh City Paper's ART BOX Competition! I was selected as one of ten artists to decorate a newspaper box this summer and now they're out on the streets of Pittsburgh! I believe mine is out near the Omni William Penn Hotel. To vote, all you have to do is go to the City Paper's website -- here's the link -- type in my name (Jes LaVecchia) and then your name, email and a captcha and BAM, DONEZO! All/any votes and sharing is greatly apprecited!

**If you happen to live or be visiting the Pittsburgh area, stop by my art box, take a picture of yourself by it and then send it to me with your address and i'll mail you a surprise! (Buttons, stickers, zines, etc.)

Interviews and pictures of all the artists will be up on the site soon, as well as a feature in the Oct. 31st issue of the City Paper!

Not a whole lot of motivation this month, mostly because i've been slaving away on the art box for the PGH City Paper. Finally finished painting it this evening, applying a top coat of polyurethane tomorrow and taking it downtown this week for final submission! Its been a pain, and i've logged a ton of hours, but it looks great and its a cool project.

'Sinners Struggle' re-do

I saw the 'Sinners Struggle' painting on tumblr last weekend and thought it was hilarious. I decided to re-draw it and might do it again with some other weird old paintings.

August Updates!

Overhauled my ETSY last night! Lowered prices on older items and added all the new things i've been making lately! Alsooooooo, i'm getting more buttons made soon! Getting the orange 'Hapdog' buttons re-made since everyone wiped me clean of those and decided to make 2 new hot dog designs, since everyone seems to love hot dogs so much.

T'was a great show! Thanks to everyone who came out last night! Sorry, I was unable to stay longer, but that was the best turn out i've ever seen within the first hour of a show opening. Special thanks to BUCKBUCK for having me! The show should be up for about a month if you didn't get to see it.
