  • The Declaration of You! Success

    Who else is excited for The Declaration of YouI?!

    This summer, North Light Craft Books is releasing the much-anticipated book The Declaration of You by art power trio Jessica Swift, Michelle Ward, and Pierre François Frédéric. They promise to give readers "the permission they’ve craved to step passionately into their lives, discover how they and their gifts are unique and uncover what they are meant to do!"

    As part of The Declaration of You’s Blog Lovin’ Tour, Beth Demmon from Wheatpaste Art Collective is thrilled to join over 100 other bloggers in highlighting one of the weekly themes. This week's theme - SUCCESS. Here are the points we're going to cover as part of the tour:

    • What do you believe the main factors of success to be?
    • Does success look differently to you as an adult than it did when you were a child? How so?
    • What part of your life right now doesn’t feel successful to you? What does?
    • What’s the accomplishment that you’re most proud of, and why?
    • What’s your personal declaration around success?
    Success can be difficult to pinpoint; with so many different ideas and views of what "success" entails, it's easy to feel gloomy when comparing oneself to others. One of my favorite quotes of all time is by Teddy Roosevelt, who said "Comparison is the thief of joy."
    How right he was! In this age of social media, it's easy to feel anxiety by comparing yourself to the seeming success of everyone else. We could definitely all benefit from taking a step back, evaluating ourselves, and realizing that yeah! I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me!
    What do you believe the main factors of success to be?
    Personal fulfillment is a huge factor to success, actual or imagined. Yeah, you might not have invented Post-It notes or Toaster Strudel, but I feel like if deep down in your core you know that you are on the right track, that's the most important thing. Sure it's nice to have recognition from parents, co-workers, friends, etc., but the moment that you start focusing on the "success" that others seem to have and you lack is the moment that you start down a slippery slope into Bummertown.
    Plus, who better than yourself to figure out what success really means! Not everyone wants to be rich or famous - success to many people means simply being able to support one's self or family, or to finally start that blog you've always meant to, or even just waking up in the morning. Start viewing the glass as half full rather than half empty and just watch how feelings of success start to cultivate!
    Does success look differently to you as an adult than it did when you were a child? How so?
    I feel like as an adult, success has to be self-started a lot more than as a child. Growing up, it seemed like there were lots of opportunities geared towards establishing a sense of self-worth which is essential for kids. By the time you get to be an adult and enter the "real world", there is a lot more pressure to carve out your own achievements rather than working towards set goals like making the honor role, success in team sports, pursuing hobbies, etc. If you had a fulfilling childhood (which thankfully I did!), you'll have been given lots of opportunities to try many different things that eventually narrow down as you grow older and your time becomes limited.
    What part of your life right now doesn’t feel successful to you? What does?
    There are a few projects that I've had on the back burner for (I'm sorry to say) a few years. I put a lot of pressure on myself to do certain things and achieve certain milestones - often life just gets in the way, and before you know it 1, 2, 5, 10 years have gone by! Still, I try to remind myself of the daily successes that I'm able to accomplish, and use feelings of negativity as motivation instead.
    Happily, there are more areas in my life where I feel successful rather than not! I'm still in my twenties and my husband and I are homeowners, which provides a very tangible feeling of success. Also, I've been involved in the visual arts my entire life and even went to school to get a BFA in Painting and Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University. My parents both really went out on a limb when I took what had been a hobby to a degree program and stuck it through for 5 years. Now, I'm SO lucky to be using my degree in the art field - not necessarily as a fine artist, but as a part of the team here at Wheatpaste where i get to use my "art vocabulary" on a daily basis and get inspired by artists from all over the place. How cool is that?!
     
    What’s the accomplishment that you’re most proud of, and why?
    It's easy to point to professional accomplishments as an adult since they are sort of culturally universal milestones that people can list out and understand. Still, I'll have to go with completing the 4-day trek of the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu last year. It was insanely physically demanding but 100% worth it. 

    Friday, July 12 at 9-9:30 AM PST, we’ll be on our Facebook page having a comment party around the topic that’s been featured that week.

    The Declaration of You

  • Wheatpaste "On The Wall" Art Show

    The sign outside the art show read “Drinks, New Art, Sweet Tunes, and Old & New Friends”. Clearly, D-Structure was the place to be in Lower Haight on Friday night, and Wheatpaste was stoked to be a part of the First Friday art show calendar!

    “On the Wall” is showing at D-Structure from July 6 – August 6 at 520 Haight Street, and with work from some of the raddest artists and designers around (including Methane Studios, Rachel Caldwell, Daniel Chang, Paul D’Elia, Hannah Stouffer, and more), it’s definitely not an art show to miss. Wheatpaste headed up from sunny San Diego to chilly San Francisco for the opening, and with tons of stickable posters and canvas wall art from floor to ceiling, guests were treated to free drinks, a dope DJ, and a few giveaways.

    Check out the pics above and even more great ones from SF Nation! See something you like? Snag it only at Wheatpaste.com.

  • Jolby Q + A

    JOLBY: [Jōl-bee] noun. 50% Josh, 50% Colby, 100% awesome. Even though they abandoned our fair city of San Diego for the greener (and rainier!) pastures of Portland, we just can’t stay mad at ‘em. Jolby creates work with the goal to “make people smile” and they’ve been wildly successful since joining forces in 2005. Long story short, their art is stupendous and they’re darn cute to boot, so without further ado, we present Jolby!

     

    WP: Do either one of you have any unusual talents? Juggling, ear wiggling, etc.? (For instance, I can flare just one nostril at a time – it’s a big hit at parties).

    Josh: Hahaha! Um, let’s see- I can dislocate my shoulders and put my arms over my head.

    Colby: I can whistle without pursing my lips. I used to do it all the time in school and drive my teachers crazy. They couldn’t figure out where the whistling was coming from.

     

    WP: So one gross and one amazing talent… excellent. Moving along! You guys work so well together, we have to ask - when you met at the Art Institute, was it love at first sight?

    Josh: We actually didn’t meet until Colby’s last quarter in school. We had a portfolio class together and we both admired each other’s work and just casually said we should work on something. The first year that we worked together it was all business. We didn’t really hang out till years later.

     

    WP: What’s the best part about living in Portland?

    Josh: For me it’s the nature. I haven’t ever lived in place like Portland where you can be in the city and escape into the forest in minutes. It’s in endless source of inspiration for me.

    Colby: For me it’s the fact that this city has everything I need to work hard, like an amazing creative culture, inspiring creatives all around us, great coffee. It also has everything I need to take relax, like lots of craft beer and beautiful surroundings.

     

    WP: Even though San Diego most definitely beats Portland in terms of craft beer, we’ll let it slide. What exciting stuff do you guys have planned for 2012?

    Josh: We just signed a contract for our next children’s book and our first vinyl toy will be coming out later this year. I think the biggest news was we were asked to be a part of The Art Institute’s national ad campaign. It still feels really crazy and we are honored that anyone, especially the school we started at, would ask us to represent their graphic design program.

    WP: Seeing as we’re total vinylheads over here, we are definitely going to need a heads up when the toy is released!

     

    WP: Cats or dogs?

    Josh: DOGS.

    Colby: Cats! This is probably the biggest issue Josh and I disagree on.

     

    WP: Who are the biggest influences on your work?

    Josh: Jim Flora and Alexander Girard.

    Colby: Tim Biskup and Geoff McFetridge.

     

    WP: What are three things you never leave your house without?

    Colby: My iPhone, chapstick, and a sketchbook.

    Josh: iPhone, sketchbook, and my dog Archie.

    WP: What kind of dog is Archie? We love dogs!!

    Josh: He’s a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua. He is kind of like a cat and an old man but he’s amazing. He’s the office guard dog! J

     

    WP: You guys have done work for huge companies like Disney and T-Mobile – do you have a favorite project, or one you’re most proud of?

    Josh: The book we did for The Muppets was one of the coolest projects we have done. I think the Shapes & Smiles was the other project I am most proud of. We pushed ourselves harder than ever to try new styles and techniques. It was an incredibly stressful time but now looking back the 2 months we worked on it, more styles and ideas came out than ever before.

    Colby: It’s hard to choose just one, but I think my favorite to-date that I’m most proud of is our recent art show “Shapes & Smiles”. I think it represents us the best visually and it was so much fun to create all of that art.

     

    WP: Shapes and Smiles was ridiculously awesome. We are so stoked we got to check out the stuff IRL.  Speaking of work, what does your workspace look like?

    Colby: We work in a long room and share the space with 5 other creatives and a few dogs. We call the space “Fieldhouse” and share it with Scribble Tone, Chris Forrette (of Cuban Council fame), Andy McMillan, and an intern of ours. The walls that face Josh and my workspace are adorned with tons of vinyl toys, books, and prints. We have a giant type piece on the wall made up of nails and string that reads “Get Better.” It’s our office’s creative mantra to remember why we all started working in the same space together: to push each other and get better at what we do.

     

    WP: Josh – we see from your 11 Favorites from 2011 blog post that you mention “successful mushroom hunting”. Can you give us some more detail about your adventures with fungus?

    Josh: Glad you asked. Just outside the city you can find a bounty of amazingness in the woods. I normally go for chanterelles, and morels. But I bring along a field guide so I can identify other mushrooms and plants. I never did it before moving to Portland, but it has become one of my favorite hobbies. I would love to go into Washington and North California to forage.

    Colby: I don’t go foraging with Josh, but I will text him many Super Mario Brothers jokes whenever he’s out mushroom hunting.

     

    WP: Colby, if you were to go to a Doug Loves Movies podcast taping, what would your nametag look like?

    Colby: I’ve actually been to 2 of his tapings! Both of my name tags that I made were pretty pathetic, but my fiancé’s actually got chosen and she was mentioned on the podcast. We love Doug and I’m very much obsessed with comedy podcasts of late.

    WP: Give “Mike and Tom Eat Snacks” a whirl – between MATES and DLM, you’ve got the funniest podcasts covered!

     

    There you have it! Be sure to check out Jolby’s collection available here, and stay tuned for more great things from our Portland pals.
