June 12, 2014

June 8th was the 37 Annual Haight-Ashbury Street Fair. I had entered a design for their poster contest and got a runner up position so my design was printed on postcards available for sale.

With the African Outlet we have been planing and working on some new direction to their campaign to save their store here in San Francisco (currently at 524 Octavia Street). Including fundraisers, parties and the yearly World One Festival across the bay in El Cerrito.

We have released an instagram page for all the instagramers out there to spread the word, see the vibe and show support.

The petition to save the store is still open to sign and show support at http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/save-the-african-outlet

Stay tuned for more ways to help and of course more art!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful June month so far.

Cheers and One Love!

Help us Save The African Outlet! Keep African Culture and Diversity Alive in Hayes Valley, San Francisco!

January 29, 2014

With great honor I have been working with my dear friends and community at The African Outlet getting their campaign online to save their store in 20 year landmark location. Creating Graphics, a facebook page and moveon.org petition under the direction of owners Judah Dwyer and Horgan Edet.

The African Outlet is an independently owned shop and magical place in the Hayes Valley neighborhood of San Francisco (824 Octavia Street). You can refer to them at their links TheAfricanOutlet.org and facebook.com/TheAfricanOutlet

They bring traditional African culture, ambiance and quality African cargo directly to and engaging with our community in the heart of San Francisco since 1989. The African Outlet with their group of drummers and dancers, The African Outlet Experience participate in community cultural events in the SF Bay Area such as Carnaval Parade, Juneteenth Parade and July 4th World One Festival. It such a joy to participate with them in these events. In 2012 I wrote a blog post after participating at their event in Carnaval where you can see with your own eyes https://moonsquirrel.wordpress.com/2012/05/29/african-outlet-experience-at-carnival-2012-san-francisco-ca/

Supporting independent local artists and merchants in the Bay Area and across Africa making them essential to our economy.

Many of my hand-sewn items such as Voodoo Dolls and medicine bags are sold there and I collect from them many special charms to use in my work. Horgan and Judah are both very knowledgeable about the items and the culture/traditions/story behind everything in the store. I go there often for inspiration, to learn and share my work with the community. I learn something new every time I go. 

The African Outlet means a lot to me and so many people in my direct community and is an essential asset to the quality of life in San Francisco. If you support local art, independent business, traditional African culture or want a boost of some powerful good Ju-Ju, you are all welcome and invited to help us by liking, sharing and inviting your friends to our facebook page at facebook.com/SaveTheAfricanOutlet

Also you can sign at share our petition at petitions.moveon.org/sign/save-the-african-outlet

This will help get our message out to our official representative and show the landlords and property managers how much The African Outlet means to us in San Francisco and beyond.

Thank you so much in your interest. Here are some graphics I made for the campaign which if you like, you can use to share our message and page links. If you do this let me know if you like I can post your link on my blog and give you some huge shout-outs in exchange as thanks.
