THE 2014 JAKE PARKER CROSS-COUNTRY ART DROP!

In the summer of 2014 my wife and I decided to take our kids on a cross-country road trip from Utah to New York. While planning the trip my wife suggested I do something to connect with people accross the country who like my work. That's when I came up with the idea of doing art drops. I've known of a few artists to have done this, and I always thought it was a cool idea, so I decided to do it myself.

They way it works:

  • I draw a picture and hide it somewhere.
  • I then take a photo of either the art or the hiding spot or a combination of both.
  • I then post the image, the city I dropped it in, and a hint on Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter. And included the hashtag: #JPartdrop
  • Then I move on, hoping someone finds it.

And here's the art drops:
