It had been a couple years since I last spent any time with Marley and her mom, Sina in their spot near the Little Colorado River Gorge. I had a leftover screen print that was one of the posters used to promote the 2014 People’s Climate March (printed by Justseeds artist, Jesse Purcell). Although Sina wasn’t there, Marley was there with a full crew. Thanks for a fun hang!
ha! silly me. i thought i was just going to jc’s house to get a photo of her holding my new 1 color, hand-pulled screen print on archival paper (which features her as a 6 month old). but no…

Artist Nils Westergard painted a mural in the fall of 2013 of a young man (Calvin Smith), from the community of Inscription House. Last spring there was a day when the wind gusted up to 70 miles/hour resulting in several panels of the mural being blown off. With great effort a friend and I repaired the painting. (Thanks Stella!) The same thing happened this spring; however, before being blown off a second time the piece was tagged by the Route 16 Lost Boyz.
I wanted to interact with Nils’ original piece and found a one of my favorite photos of Calvin Smith’s nephew, Owen + attempted to create a dynamic between them where they’re considering their futures. Thanks to Jeff Wilson, Clara Bensen, Daniel Fararra + Nils Aucante for an amazing day!
