30 Characters Challenger: Kaebel JK Hashitani

| November 24, 2010 | 1 Comment

Greetings and salutations.

I’m a curator, artist, event coordinator, and Time Lord living in Portland, OR. I tend to favor illustration, but also work in acrylics, found object sculpture, clay, and broken toys.

Since I’ve spent the past five years defined as a curator or a coordinator, and less as an artist, I find this “About Me” is somewhat daunting to write. I’m in the process of clarifying what being an artist means to me, and if I’m still interested in identifying myself as such . Which is part of what drove me to participate in the 30 Characters challenge.

In 2005, I founded Sequential Art Gallery + Studio, specializing in comic book & graphic novel artwork. Additionally, I am:

  • A monthly contributor to Geek in the City Radio, a weekly podcast focusing on comics, movies, toys, and games.
  • Operations Manager for the Alter Egos Society, a superhero costume enthusiast organization working to better the community, in spandex.
  • Event coordinator for Drunken Rampage Events, a managing group for various costumed pubcrawls.
  • Cast member of Atomic Arts, a theater troupe that performs Trek in the Park.
  • Exhibitions Coordinator for the Stumptown Comics Fest, Portland’s creator- and artist-focused comic book show.
  • Coordinator of the Portland Zombie Walk.

Oh, and in the midst of all these activities, I’ve managed to misplace my TARDIS.
