We’re always open and always working here at strawberryluna HQ and here are some of the things up on deck in the near future that you might be interested in. Yep!

New website! Yes yes! It’s officially in the works and I could not be more excited. We had our first big meeting with friends & fellow Pittsburghers Val of North Maple Media. She’s smart, creative, adept at multiple platforms and just plain gets it. So of course we’re teaming up to create a much better, smoother, modern and integrated strawberryluna site experience from shopping, shipping, portfolio-looking, blogging, and more. It’s a bit of an undertaking, but we’re hoping to have it completed and launched seamlessly by June. Fingers crossed!

Well well! Here were are drawing to a quick tour of the holidays this year. I hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving! We’ve been busier than ever this year, and it’s been a whirlwind of activity. One of the things that I foresee for December & the early part of 2011 is an art print slam. We have quite a few designs raring to go, but hadn’t had much time to print them this year with posters & design client work being at an all time high for us here at strawberryluna. So, I hope to get into them and share a brand new slew of work with everyone over the next few months.

And now, ahead with the news!

Events

Upcoming Craft & Poster shows:

Renegade Craft Fair Chicago Holiday Sale, Chicago, IL, 12/4 & 12/5 from 11am – 7pm both days at the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse in Wicker Park, Chicago. For more info & a map of the event, click here. We love this show and can’t for next weekend!

Handmade Arcade, TBA, I’ve been asked quite a few times over the past months about the when & where of the next Handmade Arcade show here in Pittsburgh, and sadly I don’t know when it will be yet. Hopefully in the Spring of 2011, according to the HA gang. The biggest issue is finding a space large enough to accommodate the vendors, shoppers and parking, so if you have a space or know of one? Please give a shout!

Upcoming posters:

12/2/10 – 1221/ 10 Belle & Sebastian, UK Tour Poster – Eeeeeee!! A companion piece to our North American Tour Poster. Going to a show? Look for it at the merch tables and tell Fiona we said hello.

Upcoming art prints:

Tons throughout this winter. More info coming soon.

Whoa snap! Where did the time go? It’s April? I don’t have to shovel snow for at least another 8-10 months? Awesome!

Since my last News update, things have been super busy here. Let’s see, to recap:

News

New Friendship Studio: I finally finished my new solo studio space in the Friendship area of Pittsburgh, and it’s great to have my own spot. I printed my first successful print there in February, being a poster for my good friends Sarah & Scott’s band The Wreckids, and it’s been pretty smooth sailing ever since. Which is good since it took us about 6 months to get it all up and running smoothly. I love it! Details and a big fat blog post and process photos of that to come soon. I promise!

New Design projects: We worked a whole bunch in December & January not just on prints, but on some purely design projects for a couple of great bands and we couldn’t be happier with how it all went.

Upcoming posters:

5/30 – Vetiver @ Sasquatch Music Festival, George, WA

6/16 – Beach House @ Diesel, Pittsburgh, PA

6/19 – The New Pornographers @ Terminal 5, NYC NY, with The Dodos and The Duchess & The Duke

Upcoming prints:

4/18 – “Let Love Grow”, a new pro- happy love, anti-negativity print. To see my newest handscreenprinted art print, click HERE! And to see the story behind the print, click here.

May – “Spring 2010”, coming soon!

Shorty month! Coming and going.

Since lots of bands don’t tour much in the winter, this is the quietest time of year for poster and band work. Which is a really nice way to get recharged and gather my thoughts creatively. However, it’s still been busy around these parts, and that’s always nice. I worked on a few book cover/jacket design comps, sent out final files for yet another couple of new books about posters and poster artists that are to come out later this year, and kept busy with orders and emails from old, new, and prospective clients. A few prints are almost sold out too, so thank you very much. That’s great and it means I’ll be working on s0me new prints and posters.

One of the newer clients that I am crazy excited about is The Fillmore & Big Picture Design. Yup, that Fillmore! My first poster for them is for Brett Dennen and Angus & Julia Stone, details below. Another is my favorite band that you really need to hear, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, aka SSLYBY, details also below.

My gallery show at Bluebottle Art Gallery & Store in Seattle, WA has gone really well and is up for just a few more days. If you haven’t been able to stop by please do! And you can always visit the webstore run by Bluebottle that has many of their current show prints up and available for sale.

Details about a new show t0 celebrate Independent Record Store Day (April 18, 2009) will be coming soon as well, with a new print just for that show too.

All in all? Lil February has been whizzing by. Hope that you’ve been having fun too.
