A little public art event video from me and him to you. If you see a big dirt hill and want to run up it, you should do it.

Chank Co got a nice mention in the “Down With Helvetica…” article in the NY Times last week. There’s lots of different ways to create your own custom font, and Chank’s “Go Font Yourself!” handwriting font service is just one way to get your distinct personality into typeable font format. If you’d rather adopt someone else’s personality, you can choose from 21 different handwriting styles in the GFY Handwriting Fontpak, a concise collection of contemporary handwriting styles from previous customers who’ve had their scripts fontified.

Surprise Chank Art Show at Art-A-Whirl

Blue Cat. One of many classic Chank paintings available as prints this weekend only.
I’m hosting a spontaneous “pop-up” art show of my art prints this weekend during Art-A-Whirl in Northeast Minneapolis. One weekend only.

I’ll be showing brand new canvas prints at a place I like to call the “Space for Lease” gallery. It’s an available storefront at 1228 NE 2nd St. That’s on the corner of 2nd St & 13th Ave NE, right next to the Frank Stone Gallery.

My new inkjet prints on canvas are just a small part of an art-filled, family-friendly weekend. Art-A-Whirl is this weekend, Fri 5-8, Saturday 12-8 and Sunday NOON-5. For more info on the event visit the Art-A-Whirl site.

Take a stroll through the heart of the Minneapolis Arts District and see the work of hundreds of local artists. Whirl past my show as you saunter a mile-long stretch from the Grain Belt Keg House on the banks of the Mississippi on up to the “art-factory” site of the Nothrup-King Building. Along the way there’ll be lots of galleries, open studios, music, food, drinks and random art events everywhere.

It’s this weekend only and the weather’s looking pretty great. Hope to see you there!
