my tiny contribution to tinyshop :: matchbox art

the title is “mama-brand breast milk”. the round thing on the left is my vicious breast. my breasts are pretty wild nowadays… shooting milk all over the place.

this is one of my matchbox drawings for a group show coming up at double punch gallery in san francisco in november. i was contacted by the curator, antoinette celes. the show is called “tinyshop“. everything has to be tiny. the maximum size for this show is 6 x 6″. so i thought match boxes would be just the right size.

i really had a good time drawing these tiny things. i was asked to make five pieces, but i got carried away and made a bunch more. drawing matchbox covers is good for my mental health. it’s massaging my brain really well.

about tinyshop

double punch gallery presents tiny shop, a pop-up shop curated by Antoinette Celes, showcasing original art and handmade goods by artists, designers and creatives working in the medium of small.

As the world moves bigger, faster and stronger, we occasionally seek comfort in little things. tinyshop celebrates the preciousness of “mini” — the shortest distance between 2 points, the space of minutiae, and creative endeavors on a small scale.

tinyshop will run from November 17, 2007 through January 6, 2008, at double punch gallery in San Francisco’s North Beach district. Special events will be held throughout the shop’s lifespan, pondering the tiny theme. Fun-spirited folks and magnifying glasses are most welcome.
