I'd say not so much on Deuce due to his biggest supporter/pimper being ArtMinion Ben who also has vanished...

Not really. He lives in Oakland, CA now, and still makes art. He was living in MNPLS, and the BoNA connection is why we saw so much of his work. But it's still around. He's had a few installations at Old Crow Tattoo & Gallery in Oakland.

Faith No More, Melvins, Black Crowes...there's a ton of stuff coming out of Secret Serpents, from some of the usual suspects to artists like Skinner and Junko Mizuno. They're trying to work out some really cool stuff, getting more gallery artists involved in making gigposters, a reverse crossover kinda.

I think her apartment just burned down in nyc too while she was in vacation :-( hopefully this doesn't set her solo show back.
Yeah, between a fine art concentration with some international shows, moving to NYC and setting up Cotton Candy Machine, having a baby, and now the fire, she's had a pretty full two years.

We will add Ron Donovan to the list.

Personal problems may be the reason some of the individuals mentioned in this discussion have stopped making and selling art. Some still make art, although don't sell it to the public. Some artists now express themselves through other mediums. Substance use and starting families often change an artist's creative direction.

I don't know about this but while just randomly asking Mike if he was doing any gig posters anytime soon, he told me he has a Black Keys one coming out soon.

Heres to hoping that its a classic Screen/Sprayed poster

GB gets some local work in PDX too. He is also working (hopefully) on some original artwork thats part of a subscriber project he offered through his e-mail list.
