JOLBY's first solo show...

long time friends and lovers of mine, Colby & Josh, are putting the finishing touches on their first solo show,


"In their first solo show, Jolby’s work takes us on the journey of a boy named William who, after suffering a great loss, leaves his familiar town of Seaside to discover what “home” really means inside the depths of an aging forest. Through-out this story we are introduced to a detailed world filled with odd characters, illustrious patterns, vibrant colors, and hand- rendered type. The show tells this imaginative story using a variety of mediums including prints, paintings, drawings, and even detailed handmade plush dolls contributed by Jill and Erin Lynch (Dolls for Friends). Reflecting on their recent life experiences, the “Home is Where You Make it” story has been inspired by the artists’ pasts and deals with love, hope, depression, faith, isolation, acceptance, and re-birth."

These guys are honestly one of the most talented artistic duos; the patterns, the illustrations, the colors, the STORIES... just simply incredible. The show will be going from Feb. 21 - Mar. 22. But opening night is Feb 21 6-10pm, where Josh & Colby will both be there to sign some of their amazing prints that will be on sale. If you're in the San Diego area next weekend, absolutely no excuse to miss this.

  1. Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you've done a very good
    job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome.
    Exceptional Blog!
