NOW SELLING ORIGINAL ART

Visibility$120

 

Heavy Gel’s website just went through some re-vamping. For those who are interested- this website is build in WordPress. I’m using a theme called aav1, originally built by Aaron Adam. I have custom coded the hell out of it, and of course there are numerous plugins at play as well.

Any good website, and especially one of a high production artist/studio, should always be in a state of flux and updating. I update with new posts about what we’re up to, frequently, but the site also changes to reflect what’s happening with Heavy Gel and the people involved.

The design update does away with a distinction between portfolio and store, where everything is easily purchasable through paypal. I’ve done some back end structural work that makes it way simpler and streamlined for us to post and have it appear exactly as it should in the layout. It’s way cleaner and more organized.

I’ve finally found the time after 3 years of operating, organizing, moving around, and promoting this screen printing and design studio to really get back to work on my art practice outside of screen printing. I’ve been working on several new series of paintings and collages in addition to new art prints and gig posters. So in this web revamping Heavy Gel will now be selling some of that original work. For the moment, I’ve just put up a page of collages, but check back soon for more original art, artist books, and show updates.
