I’m really excited about this new batch of designs for 2015. I used a new technique to make the California Coastline stencil, which I pictured below. Also, I’m so pleased to add the bench design from guest artist Michael McConnell. Anyway, check it out and if you are interested in buying any of these new kids, visit my etsy shop.
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be a part of the SF Etsy’s Summer Indie Emporium. It was a really fun show and not only did I hit my sales goal for the weekend, I surpassed it! The Culture Trip saw it fit to choose their 4 favorite booths from the show and The Heated made the cut.

Burning a screen is all about blocking out light. Lately I’ve been trying to come up with new ways to create stencils. Normally, I draw designs in black ink, then print that image on a transparency. But lately, it occurred to me that there are a lot of ways to block out light. What I’m trying to say is that I’ve had an artistic breakthrough and I’m excited to try out a bunch of ideas. This is the part where I throw it all at the wall and see what sticks.

Hitting the city on my bike is one of my favorite things to do on a holiday. A lack of traffic and the general quiet that comes on a holiday makes for ideal riding, in my opinion. On New Year’s Day, I made my way over to the Dogpatch and found that there is an abundance of my favorite kind of beauty, the abandoned, busted kind. If it ain’t ugly, it ain’t pretty.
Let’s all give a big welcome to the latest stores who are now carrying The Heated’s dish towels in their fine establishments. Paulie’s Pickling in Bernal Heights, Faye’s Video in the Mission, Merch in the Lower Haight and The Mason Jar in Cow Hollow. Looking at this list, I love how varied these neighborhoods are. San Francisco is the best! You can always check my FIND A STORE page to find a store near you. I’m pretty good about keeping my site updated. Anyway, during the holiday season I managed to get a few shots of some of these stores.
What I love about the San Francisco Bazaar is that it’s a truly local show. When you go and spend money there, you’re supporting your own community. I’m really pleased to be doing this show and look forward to seeing you there.
