We here at Three Imaginary Girls have a huge crush on local designer extraordinaire, Corianton Hale. We first met Mr. Hale when he was Art Director at The Stranger where he put together some of our favorite covers.

A few years back he struck out on his own to focus on his own design firm (Sleep Op), and has since designed a massive and varied array of projects like fabric design for a line of Faconnable (the Euro-fancy department store) swim trunks and summer-wear, a recent REM book, limited edition concert posters, and perhaps most notably, the Three Imaginary Girls logo and website banner!

This Saturday July 16, 2011, Cori will fill the walls of Company {9608 16th Ave SW in White Center} with his artwork, centered around a theme of daddies and beards and masculinity.  From the looks of the sneak peak he sent our way, the collection of inspirational posters, graphic collages, and BEARDS is off the hook (mustache)!

Three of the posters shared here are part of a collaboration with Portlandian Chad Rea ad will be unveiled for the first time at the show. The star of the show is the “Daddy Drop” and will be available in a 16×20 screenprint, as well as buttons, temporary tattoos, and collage formats. I’m particularly focused on nabbing the “Keep it Curious” poster for my wall.

The opening event is free, all ages, and open to the public from 5pm to 8pm (and is open for viewing through August 20).
