For my show at #ghostgallery here in #seattle I made a small edition of #skulls. They sold out super fast, like before the opening was finished fast, so I decided to produce a few more for the second half of the show’s run. This time, they’re bigger, more detailed (individual teeth!), and six layers instead of four.  #art #paper #cut #pink #green #joeybates #joey #bates

Big gigantic thanks to all of you that made it out to the opening last night! After 4 months hunkered down at the table it was very validating to have such a great reception of the work. Show runs through June 9th. #joeybates #seattle #ghostgallery #excitement #megisreallyreallyexcited #paper #cuts #papercut #xacto #art #artwalk #capitolhill
