The party was awesome, the people were awesome, we raised the roof and $11K for arts & music education, plus we had a wonderful sketchXchange guest—Nelson Lowry of LAIKA.
It was great listening to and being inspired by the personal work of Nelson for our Design Week Portland sXc. Nelson shared his thoughts, inspirations, and career highlights. Having LAIKA there with their puppets was an extra treat, and a perfect closing to the year for sXc.

Join us after the holidays on January 3rd with the talented Maryanna Hoggatt.

We had such a nice evening with the lovely Amy Ruppel, our September sketchXchange guest, earlier last month.
She shared quite a bit of her current and past work. It was great to see the range of projects she has taken on, both professional and personal. Amy talked about her process, client interaction, collaboration with other artists and about her path as an illustrator. It really was an enjoyable time getting to know the illustrator behind her signature birds. Thank you to all who joined us!

Did you know in addition to the amazing lineup at WeMake Celebrates, we’re also hosting a curated poster show featuring ten kick ass artists during our event? You will have the chance to purchase these exclusive screen printed posters, and all the proceeds go towards art and music education in Portland.
Each 18” x 24” poster is a three-color design based on the theme “Celebrate Making” and printed by the crew at Seizure Palace. We have a limited number of prints for each artist, so make sure you join us early and grab your favorites.
