Artist of the Week: Jacob Pickard

"Listen to as many different sounds as you can get your hands on."

Presenting our Kindred Artist of the Week series! We are big fans of all the artists we work with and we are so excited to share their stories!

This week’s featured artist is local musician Jacob Pickard! You've probably seen/heard Jacob's music all over town - not only does he play his own music, but he often collaborates with other musicians and poets on recordings, performances, and open mics. He'll be at Kindred Post tonight for an interactive Sound Bar - like a salad bar, but for your ears! Play with objects, drum machine, buttons and more to add your unique sound to the live community soundtrack he'll be mixing! 4:30-7p tonight.

Artist of the Week: Michaela Goade

"Following the artist path has found me reconnecting with my culture, and it's become an anchor in a sea of (at times) overwhelming creative possibility. It's been a very enriching experience and I'll keep learning and working to honor the culture and tribe."

This week’s featured artist is local illustrator/designer, Michaela Goade. We can't believe we're alive at the same time as Michaela and get to watch her artist career unfold before our very eyes. Our grandchildren are gonna squeal when we tell them we were friends with her. You probably know her work through some of her award-winning children's book illustrations, many of which we carry as prints as well. Not only is her work beautiful, it's thoughtful and magical and steeped with exquisite feelings of place. Read more about her and her work in this week's interview!

Kindred Artist of the Week: Jennifer Lee

"This is something I still tell myself all the time - Try to look inward and make stuff you aren't seeing anywhere else. Obviously easier said than done! But I think it's really important and it'll help you stand out and get noticed."

This week’s featured artist is Jennifer Lee, the illustrator/designer behind Yeppie Paper cards. We love the playfulness and sincerity that Jennifer captures in her greetings, and it's been a joy watching the collection/company (co-run with her brother Jim) evolve and grow over the years we've been working with them!
