Scion AV Installations recently set up a really cool gallery and shop space on Melrose Avenue in LA. Featuring artwork and products designed by a rotating roster of artists (French was first, and SSUR currently has a show up), the space also carries goods produced by artists who’ve worked with Scion AV Installations in the past as well as a curated selection of items handpicked by Scion.
We were super excited to contribute a number of products to the store, including tote bags from Part of It, some of our bookends, as well as a tote and two small books we’ve created for our newest endeavor, Draw Down Books. The photo above of the shop space has a number of these items on display, including Luck (a photo book by Isaac McKay-Randozzi published by Draw Down), our 16 pp. tote bag (celebrate small press publications!), and a Make Art Now! tote bag by the awesome UPSO, the great brain behind the ultimate art zine, Faesthetic.
If you’re in LA, check it out!
Hey! The layout we did for Scion’s xD Interactive Brochure is now up and live! Features a bunch of awesome stuff from other folks who’ve been involved with Scion A/V. They are the best at getting awesome artists and musicians to do cool stuff, and this brochure showcases Anna Taratiel, Best Coast, Plastic Flesh, among others.

Last night we attended the opening of Cut It Out, a great new show full of scissor-friendly magic at Open Space in Beacon, New York in the very beautiful Hudson Valley. The show was curated by the fantastically prodigious Mike Perry, who coincidentally also has a solo show, Patterns Found in Space, at Giant Robot in New York. Lots to check out! Cut It Out is chock full of work by great folks like Maya Wild, Damien Correll, Wyeth Hansen, Garrett Morin, Anna Wolf, Jim Datz, and loads of other talented paper fiends. We were thrilled to contribute some work too. The show is up until April 5, and makes a great destination for a day trip!
As long as we’re previewing some of the new Part of It tote bag designs, let’s take a gander at another sweet set. You may recognize the DIY bag from our last post; coupled with it here is Jim Datz’s most awesome “No Grief for My Reef” tote. Aw yah. Stay tuned for the actual launch and your chance to snatch up one of these lovely new totes!
We’re very happy to announce that Part of It will be celebrating Daniel Eatock’s “Best Before October 26, 2008” project, which he created to coincide with the closing of his exhibition at Arcadia University in Glenside, Pennsylvania (just outside of Philly). We’re hosting a sale of Eatock’s “Alphabet” shirt at a special price but the sale will end on October 26.
This weekend we stopped by his exhibition, “Extra Medium,” which is Eatock’s first solo show in the United States. Happily, we also were able to pick up his new book, Imprint, which features his life’s work thus far and, to our happy surprise, includes his Alphabet design for Part of It!
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no!…. it’s the latest issues of Faesthetic, one of the best arts magazines on this planet!
Gluekit submitted two spreads of green screen fun for this issue, which is chock full of UFO themed art. Above is a peek at a detail from one of our spreads. Remember, the aliens are coming any day now!
Hey there, friends! A great new project for a super good cause– the Friends of P site is now live!
The brainchild of Yvonne Jukes, Garrett Morin, & Ryan Waller, Friends of P is an awesome project to raise funds for the Lupus Foundation of America, in honor of their mutual friend P. The site features a great cover of The Rentals song “Friends of P” done by Toyko Police Club (watch the little record-player spin!) and the first fifty donations of $15.00 receive a complimentary (and hottt!) tote bag with a limited edition design by Garrett and Ryan, both highly admired contributors to our Part of It project. Help out a good cause and donate today!
And for those who aren’t among the first fifty donations? The tote is now available at the Part of It site.
Faesthetic #7 just dropped and is now available, friendly folks. Buy it now and check out the reams of great art, including our piece above. The issue is a super doomsday art feast and is guaranteed to rock your world in red, black and white. Isn’t that a zebra reading a newspaper?
Here at Gluekit, we are really stoked about our submission. Honestly, Doomsday was a little dark for us. So after grappling in the dark and at the sewing machine, we went back to our roots. It worked for us, and we hope folks will enjoy the finished project.
Gluekit likes hand-drawn pattern-making, photography, and default graphic design!
Oh, whoozy whoo! Gluekit has finally gotten it together and launched a GLUESTORE! (About time we gave peeps a way to purchase our fine tees, prints, and other doo-dads.) To launch this exciting affair, we’ve priced everything, including this awesome and amazing Mountains Rock tee (a collaboration with Miss Amy Jean Porter) at a most excellent and affordable price of $14.00. Yes, that’s right, fourteen buckaroonies!
There is a small catch. A number of the items come in limited sizes or colors. For instance, Mountains Rock is available only in Women’s Medium/One Size Fits All (oh, and we know that claim isn’t true!), on the seemly gold shown in the pretty pink publicity shot above. It’s how the apple rolls in Gluetown as we’re sorting out our affairs. As an upshot, you get a super limited edition kind of product.
Mountains Rock does make a snappy tee for small stature mountain-climbing enthusiasts and ladies who love cute rockin’ characters. Perhaps someday we’ll reprint for all the gents out there who love the alpine heights.
Gluekit likes Amy Jean Porter, collaborative projects, and making our things available at long last! Hurrah!
