Jeremy Gregory, Elise Richman & More at the Fulcrum Gallery in Tacoma

JEREMY GREGORY
With chalkboard paint, colored pencils, and colors that really pop off their black backgrounds, Jeremy Gregory‘s works are always guaranteed to appeal to a wide array of individuals. The last time I came across one of his shows at Snowboard Connection, he did something few artists do, but more should: he shared his deepest animated secrets, in the form of about five sketchbooks completely scrawled with his thoughts, cartoons, and quick sketches. And this is what keeps Gregory’s work interesting. Whether he’s traversing through books about circus sideshows or sharing his sketchbooks, he’s always doing something subtle that sets him apart from the others.

For the Observations & Perceptions show at the Fulcrum Gallery in Tacoma this month, Gregory’s approach shall be no different. Here’s what he had to say about his display for :

“My part of the show will include an installation made to look like a workshop… there will be small illustrations representing the song “What’s He Building in There?” by Tom Waits. Also, I’m doing portraits of sex offenders that are located within 1 mile of the gallery.”

Sounds like a jolly good, mind-bending time.

ELISE RICHMAN
At this show, you can also expect some abstract paintings by Elise Richman, whose works which recall alien landscapes not unlike a wickedly colorful bacterial colony.

You might also expect sculpture and installation pieces, possibly involving glass, by Galen McCarty Turner, Oliver Doriss, and Conor McClellan.

Castle Crashers Vinyl Toys? Yes, Please.

Castle Crashers is one of XBox Live’s newest runaway hits. It brings back the side-scrolling video game action that those of us who grew up on Nintendo and Super Nintendo know so well. It’s about time someone made a game that scrolled sideways and was attractive to the new generation.

With kickass animated graphics, cuddly cuddly characters, a remarkably disgusting yet hilarious sense of humor, and one of the most epic soundtracks ever to grace the XBox Live Arcade, Castle Crashers is building up momentum through word of mouth, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down.

This weekend, an ultimate nerd-fest, PAX (Penny Arcade Expo) came to Seattle and artists from Castle Crashers holed up in a booth. They brought with them glorious glorious vinyl toys of the game’s knights and one of its barbarian. Two life-sized foam characters were also present. At “Buy 3, Get 1 Free,” the vinyls of the knights probably sold much, much better than anyone with Castle Crashers could have ever anticipated. They sold out far before the event was over.

Here are two of the characters — the Green Poison Knight and the Barbarian:

But for those of you who are still interested, the vinyl’s will be available on their website, and it is a great bridge between the videogame world and the urban street art world.
