“Most Ancient does a fine job of pustulating and sickening this bleak and fevered ‘cycle of life’ narrative. Cat and cobra, wild, winding war and little eggs.” Mothers at Quimby’s
“With issue #3, the landscape of Scaffold comes into focus, and with it, a more cohesive grasp of the epic structures on display…Most Ancient lets the winding and encrusted multilayer scaffolding take front-and-center.” Scaffold 3 at Quimby’s
We’ve enjoyed reading his reviews in this capsule format for a while now. His writing is always carefully weighted and any criticisms are usually encoded pretty gently.
“The pages are filled with environments so detailed with such incredible and varied line work that I get nervous the way you can when entering a crowded room or a large building you’ve never been in.”
So we’re 1/12 of the way to 2015, working on some Scaffold stuff and several new projects, recoiling further than usual so that our next strike carries more force.
And the Artist Annual Exhibition, opening in the gallery this Thursday will feature one of my needle points.

Our first clothing project in a long time. This is a very soft scarf. It’s made from a 55/45 Hemp-Cotton blend (purchased from Pickering International in SF). It’s got a four-color palm tree pattern, one color for each season. So this is a pretty West Coast oriented take on seasonal wear. Still, it will help you out no matter where you live. There are 37 of them. Details, and more pictures, on the shop page.
We’re gonna be tabling at The East Bay Alternative Book & Zine Fest in Berkeley this Saturday. This is a nice, laid back event put on by Tomas Moniz of Rad Dad notoriety and Oakland’s Rock Paper Scissors Collective. Check out the exhibitor list right here.
If you haven’t bought Scaffold 3 you should come find our table and have a look. Plus, we’ll have some new scarves on hand. More on that soon.
