THIS FRIDAY, April 26, (AKA TOMORROW), starting at 12:01AM, we will be re-releasing one of our popular sold-out prints as an all new Limited Edition "REMIX" print, and it will ONLY BE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE AT ZEROFRIENDS (Both Online & In Our Retail Store) FOR ONLY 24 HOURS! After the 24 hour period, we will NEVER sell this print in this version again.
The new print is a remix of our "Dying of Thirst" print, now, given new life, aptly titled "NO LONGER DYING WITH THIRST"

At the end of the 24 hour time period, the exact number of prints that we sell will be the exact number of prints released for the edition. So, if only 3 people, one spam email and one armadillo buys them, then the edition will be 5. Cool? We think so!

Print measures 16" x 20"
The price will be $50.
Signed and numbered by me. 

So yes, starting tonight at midnight (pacific), from 12:01 AM to 11:59 PM and any single minute in between those times, you can purchase this new "NO LONGER DYING OF THIRST" Limited Edition Print (as seen above) either online at ZEROFRIENDS.COM or in person at our Zerofriends Retail Store in San Francisco.

Here's a side by side so you can see the original release:

Me and a Bobcat walked into a forest....

Beautiful maniac Bobcat Goldthwait has a new film called “WILLOW CREEK” coming out and I honorably got to design the poster for it. This is what happens when you shove us both in the closet for a quick game of 7 minutes in heaven.

"Rat136" Opens This Saturday at ZEROFRIENDS OAKLAND!

Matt Ritchie's work is something that, although incredibly clean, incredibly imaginative, incredibly skilled, and incredibly colorful, STILL should be viewed with your actual, in-person, 3-Dimensional human eyeballs. Because even his 2-Dimensional pieces somehow drip with dimension in person. It really is mind-blowing. That being said, if you are within 50 miles of Oakland this weekend, YOU NEED TO COME SEE MATT'S WORK IN PERSON OR YOU MAY DIE OF MYSTERIOUS INNER-SADNESS! And not to mention that you'll miss the FREE print giveaway to the first 40 attendees on opening night!

Opening April 6th at ZEROFRIENDS OAKLAND is Rat 136, a new exhibition from California based artist Matt Ritchie. As the title suggests, Ritchie will unleash 136 hand painted rats on the gallery, some in the form of small panel paintings, others as wood cuts, and even some super neat canvas paintings with wood cut frames forged by the crafty Mr. Ritchie himself.

An opening reception will be held April 6th from 5pm to 8pm and Ritchie will be in attendance. Unsold works will be available online to view and purchase the next day via the Zerofriends website for those of us who can only attend in spirit. For more sneaks from the show, check out Ritchie's Instagram! (Thanks to SpankyStokes for the write-up!)
Matt will also be debuting two brand new 5" x 7" prints that night as well, shown here: "Cat136" & "Type136" will be available at the opening as well as online.
