Ali Six is one of those homegrown talents we just love to see! A multidisciplinary creator working in a whole range of mediums, Ali Six is a self-taught artist best known for his Richie the Tanuki/Raccoon character that is frequently seen on the streets of Chicago — and more recently as self-produced vinyl and plush figures!

About the Artist

"My name is Nikko Locander otherwise known as Ali Six. I am a multi medium artist born and raised in Humboldt Park Chicago. Since I was a child I ventured with my imagination to create cartoons, and in high school painting the streets of Chicago. After realizing there was more to art than just graffiti I combined what I learned through spray paint and my love of cartoons to create Richie the Raccoon. I use Richie to liven up the streets of Chicago and around the world with murals. Throughout my journey I have taught myself how to graphic design, create rugs, tattoo, wheat paste, spray paint, make toys, acrylic paint, and hand sculpt."

November Exhibit: Kent Venture

Who's the toughest little dude around? And what's that wonderful sound? Oh my, it's Tardigrades on Parade! 💦🐻🎺

This Saturday we are excited to open a new art exhibit by Kent Venture of Doomco Designs featuring new takes on his Tarbus the Tardigrade! Originally sculpted and designed in virtual reality as a vinyl figure, Kent is bringing Tarbus to some new mediums and we are excited to see what he's cooked up!

A lifelong Chicagoan, artist, and mechanical engineer, Kent formed Doomco Designs in 2017. Focused on digital design and physical fabrication, Kent explores the intersections between the theory of objects and the real-life capabilities of manufacturing.

Join us the evening of Saturday, November 11, 6-8pm for an opening reception to browse the art, meet the artist, and groove to a live set by Rotofugi Music Director DJ Sean Doe! Free soft drinks, BYOB.

October Exhibit: Nick & Lindsay DiFabbio

It's October and that means two things: it's officially spooky season (yay!) and our friends Nick and Lindsay DiFabbio (aka Cherry Moth Cake) are back with a new art exhibit!

But that's not ALL! For more than the last year Nick and Lindsay have been developing, designing, and play-testing a new card game featuring their art called Blessed Blade of the Badlands. Their exhibit in October 2022 introduced us to the Badlands and many of the characters, and this Saturday is the official debut and first release of the card game!

Produced in an edition of just 300 sets, this limited release will be your first opportunity to get your very own set of BBotB cards (before the full project is Kickstarted). Be the first to clear the obstacles, obtain the blade, and RULE THE BADLANDS!


Join us this Saturday, October 14, from 10am to 6pm for the opening of the Blessed Blade of the Badlands 2 exhibit, the release of the card game, and a pop-up shop with pins, prints, and more by Cherry Moth Cake! Nick and Lindsay will be at the store all day...swing by and play a few rounds!
