Today’s guest blogger is Man One! A well known and extremely talented Sharpie artist, this squad member is excitedto announce his second Sharpie Show exhibition. Last year’s turn out was incredible! I have no doubt that The Sharpie Show II will be the talk of the town, not to mention a site to see!
Announcing “The Sharpie Show II” exhibition at Crewest
I would like to announce details for “The Sharpie Show II” coming this December 2010!
“The Sharpie Show II” will once again celebrate the individual talent of today’s most sought after underground artists, illustrators, designers, and tattoo artists alike.
The exhibition will open Saturday December 4th, 2010 and run until Sunday January 2nd, 2011 at Crewest in Los Angeles.
To facilitate my curating of the show, I have put together some guidelines if you are thinking of entering your work.

Here is a quick re-cap of last year’s exhibit in case you weren’t aware of it…
As a long time fan of Sharpie markers, early last year (and before I was asked to be on the Sharpie Squad) I decided to curate an all Sharpie exhibit at my gallery, Crewest, in Downtown Los Angeles. Since we represent some of the most talented street andurban artists from aroundthe world, I knew it would be a slam dunk exhibit since most of us started with Sharpie in one way or another.
The word of mouth about the exhibition andall the hype around the show was incredible. Even though it was raining, there was a line around the block all night long! I knew at that point we had created something special.
Celebrities who were in the house, like George Clinton, joined in the festivities by doing some live painting in front of a packed house of fans.
We received artist entries from all over the United States and including works from Belgium, Switzerland, Mexico and other countries as well.
Over 200 Sharpie entries were submitted including drawings on paper, wood, canvas, maps, toys, and even shower curtains!
Of course, aside from curating the exhibit, I also created some original Sharpie pieces just for this show including this print titled “Global Warning”
(Btw – still a few left on Crewest.com > http://crewest.com/shop/prints_posters/prints_posters.html)
Look out for new Sharpie pieces I will be creating specifically for The Sharpie Show II exhibition as well.
Hope you can make it out to the show. It’s gonna be classic!
