Featuring Laser Etched Art Work

Remember when we were kids, and lasers were the raddest? Laser Tag? Lasers in the back drop of school photos? Lightsabers? Almost every Trapper Keeper graphic? Those were the days.
In 2012 it might seem that lasers have developed into nothing beyond a instrument of medical miracles and a means to mess with your cat.... BUT we do have laser etchers and our dreams!

Amy is a full-time artist, illustrator and so-so gardener in beautiful & green Portland, Oregon. She was born and raised in a Mid-Century home in the Kettle Moraine woods of WIsconsin near the Mammoth Ice Age Center. She drew plants and comics, dug up fossils and went for endless forest walks among all her forest friends, the birds being her favorite. Her love for nature and science led her to an art and illustration career, and to the Pacific Northwest. She has since worked with Target, Converse, Burton Snowboards and many other fun companies. She is currently working on a very rewarding project with Seattle Children's Hospital, illustrating the new patient units and halls. Amy's love for color an pattern in nature and science led her to an art and illustration career, and to the Pacific Northwest. She has since worked with many fun companies and has art shows around the globe.


Berto Legendary H is an independent designer and artist based in Portland, OR. After attending Parsons School of Design in New York City he decided to move to Los Angeles where he has shown in galleries and build his network of clientele. He has been featured in Computer Arts Projects and numerous blogs about his art and typography. Berto also does mens fashion design and has been acclaimed by Vivienne Westwood and many others. He is known for setting trends, progressive designs and mixing of fabric textures.


Chris DeGaetano AKA DIGS is a Jersey boy living in Portland. He likes to create art, ride boards & impersonate pro wrestlers (R.I.P Macho Man). Graphic design, photography and street inspired art are his weapons of choice. His work is best described as ‘visually stimulating’ and often includes a variety of multi-media techniques. DIGS was schooled in Boston, a beach bum in socal and is now Senior Designer at Nike.


Jessica Raddatz, aka. "JesseHectic", grew up in the Pacific NW and currently lives and works in Portland. The "Rambo Tambo" series was born out of a project meant to reconnect with peoplethrough the dying art form of the hand written letter. It grew into a movement to start an all girl all tambourine band named "Rambo Tambo." Growing exponentially in size, the band will roguely bomb venues with a flash tambourine mob of women. Look out for a future "surprise" performance in a city near you.


To infuse depth and luminosity into his work, Jordan employs a palette of punchy hues. Experimenting, he discovered that when inks layer heavily onto Mylar, it creates a rich, almost melted effect. Pigments become slightly volatile, even mercurial, and their behavior enlivens the entire process. Jordan likes to explore how different amalgams of color work together, because it sure trumps sitting back and watching paint dry.


Michael Hyp was born elsewhere, but raised in Portland. His works are influenced by M theory, sacred geometry, iconography of the dark arts, introspection, hallucination and Pop Shoppes lime rickey soda. When not creating artwork Michael enjoys reading beyond his depth of understanding, making beats and immersing himself in mysticism and mythology.


Having been born into a family that highly values Japanese aesthetic, Ryo Okamoto moved to London to attend art school in 1995. During the next five years he immersed himself in a variety of studies, from economics to biology, while continuing his art, having been inspired by artists such as Basquiat and Keith Herring. Upon his return to Japan in 1999, Okamoto had his first solo art show at IDEE SHOP Pacific. He took a break from art in 2002 till 2009, during which time he worked for an imports company, a job that took him all over Europe. His interest in art resurfaced in 2009 with a heightened interest in folk art, a small collection of which he accumulated while traveling.
