This Blog is Moving!

I'm making some changes! This blog will be very seldom updated, and maybe only occasionally to send you to the new one. It's been rad in here, and I'm going to leave all this up for anyone who wants to go back and read things (I do sometimes haha)! 

The new blog page for all the info on new Soto prints, apparel, upcoming shows, and everything else is:

Thanks everyone! This used to be a great place to discuss things, but FB and Spam killed blogs a long time ago.

Here's a few of my favorite nostalgic posts:

The Wise

The Wise is the newest Seeker Friend print and will be available March 7th for 24 hours. Artist Jeff Soto shares his inspiration for this print:

"I've always felt the Seeker Friends might be a shamanistic society, worshipping the plants and animals and forces of nature. The Wise is a sage elder, able to harness magic and communicate with the most intelligent animals. The well developed antlers and grey fur are a sign of great age and a symbol of deep respect amongst the Seeker Friends. While plying their craft, these wise shaman also serve as historians, healers and teachers."

The newest Seeker Friend, "The Wise" was inspired by a recent trip to Hawaii. Soto has been interested in tribal cultures and mythology since he was a child, but this visit to Oahu involved many events that got him more involved with the Hawaiian culture, including getting blessed by a Kahuna and learning about the Aumakua- a sacred spirit protector. Said the artist, "I had this idea to mix some of what I experienced in Hawaiian culture with my love of fantasy. I came up with this idea on the drive from Honolulu to the North Shore one evening, and did the sketches on the plane flight back."

"The Wise" is a 6" x 6" UV print on sustainable FSC certified 3/4" plywood. Each comes ready to hang, and is signed and numbered. This is the 13th print in the series of these little creatures.

Available at $25 + shipping. These prints are available starting Thursday March 7th at noon (12:00pm PST) and will be available 24 hours until Friday March 8th at noon (12:00pm PST) . If you order a print during this time, you are guaranteed to receive it. As always, $1 from every print sold goes to and will plant one tree! We will also continue to give the original away, one lucky buyer will get a surprise in their package!
