That time I did an art show really fast…

Happy late new years!
 
I had a quick art show at my friends Emporia Brewing new tasting room over the weekend in Ontario, california and wanted to share a quick recap. Thanks to people who made the trek out, the boys at Emporia, Claudio at Chamo studios, and John Hall for pretty much setting up the whole show.
 
Heres to more shows this year! Also, I tend to update my instagram (@benjieescobar) a bit more with info, so if you’re interested, go check that!

its pizza time once again….

Here’s a sneak peek of my piece for the upcoming “Welcome to Springfield” show happening Saturday December 6th at Rose City Pizza. It’s an awesome little place in the San Gabriel Valley with a great selection of brews and tater tots I still tell people about. Keep up with the show via instagram at @rosecitypizza or if you’re in the area come say hi at the opening : )

suckcess!

I’ve wanted to make this as a shirt for about 7 years now, but never really knew how to.
 
I’m not the hugest Bob Dylan fan, but there was a still from the film Don’t Look Back, with him holding a sign with a crudely written “SUCKCESS” on it that suck with me all for a long time. At the time, I just thought it was a clever little quip, but over the years my reasoning for coming back to that image has evolved.
 
It’s really not for everyone, but something I finally got to make a tangible good (Screen printed by yours truly, to boot) that’s been on my list forever. If you are so inclined to purchase, you can do so Available here, and I hope your views on success evolve over time as well.

Boxes of Death 5, Los Angeles recap

The Boxes of Death 5 show came through Los Angeles last night at The Chun, a very fitting venue for this show. Its now on its 4th and final stop in Seattle at the Piranha shop before all the coffins find their new owners and are put to rest. I made it out to see my piece hung next to some of my favorite artists, with some stand out pieces by Oliver hibert, Craig Wheat, Scott Fuller, and a bunch of other people i’m still in awe over.
 
You can get more info on the show at the official website, if you’re in Seattle dont miss out!

thanks!

Thanks to everyone who picked up a print from me, the 1st wave has left and is on it’s way to you.
Because i’ve ruined so many prints on my own, i’m packing these up with a nice white cotton glove to handle it with, and some instructions/FAQs about prints. Hope it helps! Also there are move available on my webshop, so if you’re thinking about picking one up, know it comes with extra goodies ;)

fo’ sale

I’ve pruned, made over, and added some new stuff on my art & prints site.
you can check it here (or click on the print shop).
 
New things include my ART giclee’ print and my Anti Everything pin set. If you check my instagram I went into why the art print is important to me, and I FINALLY remade my anti yes/anti no pins. I added some extras (anti this, anti that, anti you) that I thought were fitting. I’ll be adding in more prints and small accessories so make sure to occasionally check. I promise you might actually like something.

lucky donut art show

Last Thursday was the opening for, in my opinion, one of the most interesting group shows i’ve been in this year.
Melissa Chhan put together a donut art show at her family ran donut shop, Monterey Donuts, to celebrate being open for 20 years. There were quite a few local artists involved, and was a really fun turn out of artists, art lovers, and donut shop locals. You can see my piece for the show in my portfolio section.
