One of my contributions to the traveling sketchbooks.

 
The Project: 

The 2020 MplsArt Sketchbook Project is a unique survey of the Twin Cities Visual Arts Community during one of the most challenging years. 68 local artists contributed 120 pages of original work to a series of 5 traveling sketchbooks.

The Book:

The sketchbook pages have been compiled into a beautiful 88 page hardcover book with all net proceeds split among the featured artists. You can get a copy NOW via Kickstarter (we have already reached our Kickstarter goal but you can still get a book for the next 54 hours!)


"March", my original painting for the exhibition- 12x16", acrylic/graphite, $500.

The Exhibition:

An exhibition of original works from the participating artists and a chance to see the original sketchbooks at Gamut Gallery in Minneapolis.

We made a music video!


I have been waiting (im)patiently for an eternity to share some fun news-
We made a music video!

I love the song and it was a real treat to work with my friend
Josh Sundby
He did ALLLLL of the hard work (animation.)

Read all about it via Americana UK:
"Hicks says of the video: “John and I have long admired Jennifer Davis’s distinctive palette and her soulful blend of realism and fantasy, and we’re thrilled with the world she and Joshua have imagined for ‘Only Smoke.’ I originally wrote the song as a sort of dialogue between four characters, and to my ears John’s vocal interpretation preserves that conversation while creating a compelling composite character. Jennifer and Joshua have further transformed and enriched the song and its narrator(s). We’re honoured to have prodded their beautiful collaboration.”

Buy the album here.

Illustrations by Jennifer Davis
Animation by Joshua Sundby


Performed by an augmented Munson-Hicks Party Supplies: John Munson, vocals, bass; Kelly Hogan, vocals; Nora O’Connor, vocals; Zacc Harris, guitar; Jeremy Ylvisaker, guitar; Dylan Hicks, piano; Richard Medek, drums. 

Song by Dylan Hicks

Produced by John Munson and Dylan Hicks

Mixed by Jason Orris

I've been blabbing about it for AGES but I finally did it-

I MADE MY OWN WEBSTORE! (Goodbye, Etsy.)
Surely, it is filled with typos and errors but it is LIVE- a work in progress.

Visit my new store here:
I couldn't figure out how to do the shipping so I just included shipping costs in each item (AKA "free" shipping- lol)

Check it out sometime?
