Snowboarders Max Tokunaga & Desiree Melancon have partnered to bring thier dual art show "Smooches Two XOXO" & "Stink and Stick" to our Portland store. Join us on Friday December 2 for a special exhibit opening along with a live performance from YURT

Smooches Two XOXO
New places come with new faces, plenty of excitement as well as concern for the future. Job hunting, on top of house searching takes a toll on the reason why a calm and comfortable mountain town lifestyle has been left behind. Congested with traffic, grocery store rush hour, people asking for money on every block, there is something welcoming and fresh to being anonymous in this city. Take a risk, go somewhere without a plan, embrace, cherish, and learn from every situation. A continuation of the book series, “Smooches XOXO.” All books are printed in Seattle then personally hand bound.
Max Tokunaga grew up in Stockton, California. He has a degree in Photography from the University of Nevada, Reno and has been shooting for nine years. A large transition from small mountain town to big city life sparked a perspective change worth sharing. Traveling for most his life, he has the undeniable ability to capture moments that would be otherwise taken for granted or missed. WIth Smooches Two XOXO, he shares with us his observations of how a twenty something living in Seattle fills his time.

Stink and Stick
On the hunt. Inspired by broken hearts and painful separations. Stink and Stick finally get the chance to figure out what makes him tick.
This mixed media series was created to celebrate the music of Seattle based band Yurt’s new album. Using the combination of hand illustrations, front yard floral arrangements, and 35mm photographs, the world of Stick and Stick comes to life. A little out of place, but oddly just right.
Composed by Desiree Melancon, a current Portland, Or. resident. Enrolled part time working towards an art degree at Portland State University. She spends most her time using her hands and standing sideways.
