About this project

There's no logo for this project yet; I don't even know what it's going to look like. We're going to watch Ian Collins make it in the first episode.

Then we'll follow Mike Monteiro, Kate Bingaman-Burt and Mary Kate McDevitt as they create a custom piece of work about their respective processes. Each artist will get their own 5-10 minute episode.

The artists' work will then be screen printed onto notebooks, posters and t-shirts right here in Portland, OR by Man vs. Ink. They will be for sale the day the episode airs, with proceeds being split between the artists and the costs of future episodes.

Really, what this project is about is trusting in the artist to create something amazing, and watching it unfold. I can't explain in too much detail what exactly will happen in each episode, because it really will depend on the artist and how things naturally unfold. We'll be getting out of the office and walking around, talking about what's important in their lives, and how those things effect them creatively and otherwise. 

You can help make this happen by pre-ordering the notebooks, posters and t-shirts from the episode of your favorite artist. All of the money is going towards paying the artists, equipment rentals and travel costs.

The way we work is influenced by all aspects of our lives, not just sitting at our desks. 

Thank you,

Paul Searle
