Citizen Phirom | May 8th | Chop Suey

letterpressed handbill by Leigh Riibe at Bremelo Press

Citizen Phirom is a benefit show to help our friend pay for citizenship so they can vote for the first time. This is especially important since the next presidential election will be this November. There is going to be an awesome lineup including The Fancy, Wishbeard, and Glitterbang with DJ kKost.

A message from Phirom:
5 Facts:

I was born in a refugee camp in Thailand because my family fled my homeland of Cambodia to escape genocide.
2. I have never set foot in my homeland.
3. I became an orphan in 2009, losing my mom when I was 11 years old and then my dad at 27.
4. I am not a U.S. Citizen.
5. I need your help to become one, so that I can vote for the first time.
All my love,

Chop Suey | 1325 E. Madison

Each month artists donate new works based on their interpretation of a different concept. The art is displayed for one month at Quality Burrito Restaurant in Olympia, WA where the public bids. At the end of the month art finds its way to winning bidders and the proceeds are donated to various inspiring organizations.

This month the concept is "That's What She Said". Lynda Sherman of Bremelo Press and I have donated a collaborative letter pressed poster and it will be on display through the end of May 2012. All proceeds will be donated to Courtney's House, an organization committed to providing loving environment for girls and boys between the ages of 12 and 18 who are survivors of sex trafficking.

Below are some of the donated art works:

"Knit for Fun and Profit" mixed media by Kelsey Smith

Live Through This Mix Tape with Letterpressed Sleeve

As a part of my photo exhibition at Honey Salon in Bellingham this month, I have made a limited edition mix tape with a custom letter pressed sleeve. There are only 100 of these in existence! All of the type is hand set one letter at a time, and the photo is a halftone plate I had custom made at Boxcar Press in New York.

These tapes will be available for sale at Honey Salon on Friday April 6th for my opening, and online soon. Stay tuned!

Thanks to Lynda at Bremelo Press, I was able to make this happen. I extend my gratitude to her patience, generosity, and knowledge.
