Workshop Season for Hoarsefly

campcontemp-bandana

 

Most of y'all know that Abi handles print separations and color-matching here at Bearded Lady, along with a lot of other daily print operations. She is also an active freelancer, providing design and illustration services under the moniker Hoarsefly, and this past year she began teaching wood-burning workshops, introducing creative folks to a process that she loves using in both her personal and client work.

Camp Contemporary

Abi was selected to be one of three featured artists (along with Jules Buck Jones and Will Gaynor) for The Contemporary Austin's annual fundraiser, Camp Contemporary. She created designs for commemorative patches and bandanas for the event.

She also hosted a wood burning workshop for the event, on the beautiful grounds of Laguna Gloria. Attendees spent the day embellishing slabby raw-cut wooden coasters.

"Between the River" collaborative print release and closing show

 

We worked with artists Adam Young and Aaron Michalovic on a collaborative print in commemoration of their closing show. The print was a mixture of relief print method and hand drawing, turned into a screenprint.

Stop by the shop to pick up a print during open hours or buy one online here.

 

Afterwards, we invited our friends over to celebrate the print release and we tore down and burned the on-site installation in our parking lot.
