There are names imprinted into most sidewalks around Portland. Street names past and present, yes, but there are other names, too: the name of the sidewalk’s paver, or at least the crew they were working for, and the year the concrete was set. They’re nearly everywhere and, for five years, I’ve been collecting those stamps.
I promise, the whole thing is more exciting than it sounds.
My friend Corbin and I made a publication called Day Job.
Day Job is a collection of works by a group of talented and diverse women about making art and making a living. The result—a 90+ page saddle-stitched beauty—is full of funny and smart and weird and sad work, which we are proud to have helped coax into being.
We are pleased to announce that we’ve sent the Green River Magazine to print. Thanks to a 2013 Sappi: Ideas that Matter grant and the incredible generosity of Epicenter, we will soon have a printed document of a lot of hard work in the town of Green River, Utah.
People, would you like to receive a copy in the mail? Use this form to give us your address. We’ll ship them until our shipping budget runs out, at which point you’ll have to travel to Green River to pick up a copy.
Pride is coming. And everyone is invited. This year we’re tickled all colors of the rainbow that JD Samson is teaming with us to pop the pride parties for our locals in LA / LDN / NYC / PSP. JD’s been a pardner to Ace here for a hot minute, and it’s with worlds of pleasure that we work together again. The cherry on top: JD went out and made a special mixtape for our aural delight. Participate. Be active. Let’s be out and let’s do this. #everyonespride
This is exciting! And I would like to brag: I got to talk to JD on speakerphone! MM HMM.
