wow, the turnout and enthusiasm about “bird call”, my solo show that this weekend in l.a., was just amazing. thank you so much to everyone who attended! gr2 has begun selling work online, and that can be found at, but last i checked, not all 180 paintings were up (yes, 180 was the final count!) the show (and the mural i painted on the wall) comes down on dec. 6th. we might have a closing reception at which i play some songs, so stay tuned.


i’m finally catching up with some of the work i left behind, including a much needed shop update! a bunch of new t-shirts have been added, as well as restocked owl hoodies (in two sizes), raglan shirts, boatnecks and more and hopefully i’ll have some new pouches sewn to add to the ranks by next week.

actually, i’m in another show this weekend, a show of handmade toys titled “dinosaur party” opening at GR-SF on saturday, nov 18th. i made a mobile, here’s a detail:

other things coming up: group shows in portland, san diego, and houston. i’ll be a vendor at both felt club, dec 9 and bazaar bizarre, dec 16, both in l.a. and am looking forward to sleeping in february.

bird call, one week away!

BIRD CALL, a solo art show by Susie Ghahremani at GR2
at Giant Robot, 2062 Sawtelle Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025
November 11th – December 6th. Opening night is November 11th, 6:30-10pm

the GR press release:

Ghahremani is a RISD graduate who has contributed work to Nickelodeon, Chronicle Books, and The New York Times, and is featured in this year’s American Illustration publication. Illustrations by the San Diego artist have a patchwork appearance that is simple in design, complex in execution, and all-around pleasing to the eye. In addition to making two-dimensional art, she crafts tote bags, buttons, wallets, stationery, and other goodies.

For Bird Call, Ghahremani is creating an expanded collection of animals, invented creatures, patterns, and color studies. There will be about 150 gouache paintings on wood, board, and paper. Dimensions range from “mini” to “not so mini.”

yes, 150!

here’s a sneak peek at some of the work i’ve been doing for the show:

psst! pass it on
