We’ve been working away at our own lives since we last posted. Jess and I are getting married and figuring out how to stay alive as artists in a town that continues to become more expensive. We’ve got some ideas about the next phase of Crummy House and what we’ll do next with this art experiment in collaboration. Stay tuned, the crumminess will continue soon.
“A fun little interview I did with my friend and artist Will Gaynor of the Common House. He had a really rad show this past October. I didn’t get to buy a piece this time, but I felt like I learned more about him, and I think that’s a pretty cool thing. Shout out to the Illegal Eagles.”
If you didn’t get a chance to pick up Xavier’s recent collaboration, you might be out of luck. They went like hotcakes at Common House and the Austin Zine Fest. A great collaboration and hard work paid off on this one. You can still see it here, but you’ll need to track down a copy to read this great work.
We’re excited to announce another collaboration with good friend, X.C. Atkins. This zine packed full of great works all about wolves will be available at William Gaynor’s exhibition at Common House coming up this weekend and Austin Zine Fest at our table on November 2nd. Don’t miss this limited edition of some funny writings and great artwork, all hand picked by X.C. himself.
Crummy House is proud to announce a collaboration with friend and rad creative, Klint Teston. We’ve been sitting on this work from Klint since earlier this year, but finally got around to putting this book together. A rad piece with clips from the local rag, BUSTED, features some characters who got a little unlucky here in Austin.
We’ve gotta admit, we haven’t been working too much on Crummy House stuff these days. Since the show in late March, we’ve been really just trying to keep our heads and find some REAL work to keep us and the kitties fed. We’ve got some plans in store for the summer and the fall, but don’t hold your breath for a while.
