So, I was doing the artwork for X-ACTO this year in Austin, TX for SXSW.  Here are some great shots from the event.

I signed over 500 limited edition posters I designed and created more than 100 custom small canvases as well.  There were lines around the block with folks and media waiting to get some of my artwork…

I have partnered with X-ACTO ( http://xacto.com/ ) to do their artwork for this years SXSW (South by South West) Festival.  For those of you who don’t know what that is, South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences that take place every spring in Austin, Texas.  It began in 1987, and has continued to grow in size every year. In 2011, the conference lasted for 10 days, with SXSW Interactive lasting for five, Music for six, and Film running concurrently for nine days.

X-ACTO reached out to me to create an artwork-centric environment using my art to showcase the abilities of their products, which I use regularly to create my stencils.  Other than the use of spray paint, X-ACTO is the unsung hero of my artwork!

I will be there with them on the 7th & 8th of March.  The event is located in what we are calling the “Precision Pavilion.”  It will be located on the corner of Neches & 5th Streets and will run from 10am – 4pm on each of those days.

I will be giving away free art along with signed limited edition event posters I helped design and create.  X-ACTO will be giving away tons of free merchandise.

If you are in the area I would love to meet you in person!!

This year I was contacted by X-Acto for an exclusive partnership with them for the big SXSW festival held every year in Austin, Texas.

They asked me to create several pieces for them to bring down with me that represent some elements of Austin.  This is one of the pieces.  I am also going to be giving away limited edition, signed paintings and posters on the spot so if in Austin hit me up.
