oh Urban outfitters when will you make a shirt to fit the more portly fellow. Not everyone is a Meth-Head and 80 lbs. Also where is the freaking C3P-0 shirt??

wooly willy

Here is the second costume for halloween. We found out the hard way that the magnets were WAY TOO strong. I think we lost a couple of them in the night traveling from party to party.

Richmond Craft Mafia

Dude if you live in Richmond and you are interested in selling your handmade awesomeness go hereThe Richmond Craft Mafia. They have a lot of good info on what is happening in the tri-state area (shows, craft fairs, business solutions, etc etc etc) check em out. They are having a holidaze sale(see info above). Even if you are not selling you can go buy some righteous x-mas gifts for the fam or your loved ones. Their slogan is "Rubbin' out the mass produced". They also had a booth at the Bizzare market at Chop Suey Books (a local used book store here in town).

Arthur Hash (my work)

man oh man

man oh man, originally uploaded by arthur hash.

saw this at one of those seasonal Halloween stores. Can't help but laugh at the white dude they have on the package. Then I thought I might buy it but I already have the glasses and the hat. All I need is some chain and spray paint it gold. WORD.

This is about the best thing I have ever seen......so I bought one for Liz. The packaging alone is top notch. It a store called Shopsin They have a bunch of other really nice stuff. We also bought one of their Honest Abe pins.

The Kitchen is HERE!!!

I finally got my custom kitchen cabinets. Man they are great. Especially the little slide out thing for the trash can. I can't believe how big they are. I have enough room to store all of my crap and then some. It was a tough design. We decided to make some that matched some of the ikea furniture that we had. Its all birch veneer, the base cabinet is elevated and all of the hardware is the same.

Cut out jewelry

Cut out jewelry, originally uploaded by arthur hash.

I started using some chip board in my vinyl cutter. Might have to invest in some new blades. I have to do a lot of the cutting by hand. Might be nice as a punch out jewelry piece. Maybe with a poly coating? hmmmm. Flocking? dunno. Maybe I will try some plastic sheeting soon.

sienna gallery

Got picked up by the sienna gallery a while back and they have been posting a lot of my work on their website. Thought this was a great shot with the moss brooch.

They have a lot of GREAT artists that have a lot of GREAT work on the website. I also really like the design of the site. It made me think how my site is way too busy.... Go check it out. -Arthur

Guns and Wolves!! (Cai Guo-Qiang, Head On, 2006)

Just thought this was cool. I have been playing with my patterns to create custom brushes in illustrator and its a lot of fun. For some reason these wolves reminded me of this process. Don't worry they are fake. I thought the same thing. But oddly enough there was a comment on wolves in sheep's clothing being that they are made of sheep skins
The wolves were produced in Quanzhou, China, from January to June of 2006. The commissioned local workshop in Cai’s hometown specializes in manufacturing remarkable, life-sized replicas of animals. First, small clay models were created as movement studies, out of which Cai subsequently developed Head On’s artist editions of cast resin wolves. However, the realistic and lifelike 99 wolves that grew out of these models and drawings possess no literal remnants of wolves: they are fabricated from painted sheepskins and stuffed with hay and metal wires, with plastic lending contour to their faces and marbles for eyes.


solvent space show

My girlfriend Liz has been working hard to get Stephen Westfall's show up. Man what an ordeal. She deserves an award for hardest working part time employee. One of the coolest things about the show is this giant tape ball from all of the masking. I think its still growing but right now its 12 ROLLS! of blue painters tape. Its just about the coolest thing I have ever seen. I want to cut it open like a geode You can image all of the work put into the show just by looking at the size of this thing. I ts about 24" in diameter. You can get an idea of scale from the photo of her on the scaffolding. its 18' high and 27' or so long.

OURA SANANIKONE- an amazing illustrator/object maker/comic book artist/all around nice guy had a booth across from mine at the Master Quirks sale. It kind of sucked cause I just looked at all of his stuff all day and wanted it all. Then I went to his website and felt better cause I got to see a bunch of it whenever I wanted. This is his site
