Sketches from the bus

Rode the bus today. The bus broke down, second bus hit all kinds of traffic… So I got some relaxing sketch time in. Good way to start the day.

Art Postcards

Art Postcards

Did I mention these art postcards we just printed up? High quality prints on 14lb coated cover stock. Glossy on the art side, easy to write on the backside. Nice enough to frame, or stamp em and mail them to your favorite adventure pals. If you want any send me a DM. $2 each, 3 for $4 or 6 for $7. Mix and match or all the same, you pick.

Virtual Reality Art Jam

Virtual Reality Art Jam

There’s something special going on tomorrow night. I’ll be doing a live virtual reality art jam at Better Than Unicorns in collaboration with another local artist / student Mikhaila Hines. We’ll be playing with Tilt Brush creating a live 3 dimensional virtual reality painting. This will be a new experience for me and I’m really excited to explore this new medium. It’s free to attend in person, and will also be streaming free online. https://www.betterthanunicorns.com

WHEN: Tomorrow Wed May 16th 5:30 – 6:30 PM
WHERE: Physical – Better Than Unicorns VR Arcade located in the RAMP Studios at 821 Riverside Dr #172, Asheville, NC 28801
Or Online 
WHAT – Experimental art collaboration in virtual reality with Tilt Brush 
WHY – Because we live in the future and we can! All work and no play makes John a dull boy.
WHO – Yours truly John Hornsby and Mikhaila Hines, thanks to Brett McCall for inviting and hosting us.

Hope to see you there and would love to hear your feedback afterwards.

To market, to market

To market, to market

Tomorrow (Tuesday) at the West Asheville Farmers Market the amazing West Asheville Playschool, which my kids have had the joy of being a part of, will be having a tent up selling goodies.

There will be tasty treats, kid crafted awesomeness and adult made / donated wares as well. Including these art postcards I recently had printed up.

It runs from 3:30 to 6 and I’ll be there helping out the first half of that.

Stop by and say hi!

We designed these flyers to look like little tickets for local non profit Musicworks and also provided the final printed pieces. We also made some modifications to update their logo as part their new transition to being an independent non profit.
