We've had a life changing, inspiration filled year at Soul & Ink. It's hard to wrap it up in just 10 moments, but here are some of our highlights. It's been a helluva ride.
1. This is where it all started, our launch event at Cherry Blast for National Cherry Blossom Festival.
3. When we introduced printing on upcycled tees and B.Y.O.T. (bring your own tees) for the community at ReCreative Spaces (Up)Rising Festival and it got all funky & experimental.
8. Making art accessible to all ages & communities through our educational workshops was pure love.
We have only 5 days left. DONATE & WIN PERKS TODAY! Spread the word.
Thank you for making it all possible. Wishing everyone a happy & peaceful New Year. May all of your dreams come true in 2016.
Become a backer today & help bring something fun, new and down right funky to DC by next spring! We've got until January 5th to bring our dream to the streets. Think of it like a food truck, only slangin' ink + fresh t-shirt flavor for days. Tell a friend.
Donate today. Go go go!

Most events we've joined have multi-sensory activities to engage every aspect of the attendees attention. The SoHy Cyclo Show on October 3rd was no exception, but was definitely a stand out event. Studio SoHy really knows how to throw a party! The first show we participated in was the epic SoHy Skate Show in June. This go round artists were invited to create art based around the CyClo Race theme. The show was inspired by the Hyattsville Cyclocross going down the same weekend. We have so much love for the Hyattsville community, and it looks like they got mad love for us too. Demand started off strong and eventually we sold out of all of our ladies raglan tees. There was something for everyone, great art, caffeinated beverages courtesy of Vigalante Coffee house, cold brews from Franklin's, fresh arepas from Arepa Zone, live music by Dr. Robinson's Fiasco, Black Masala and Avrge DJ. The Big Trike was a hit for the motley crew of kids and the young at heart. Folks rode it round and round til closing. Huge thanks to Studio SoHy for having us.

We participated in Bombadillo Festival, a day-long event by the lake in Druid Hill Park with four stages of music, The Gathering Food Truck Alley, Bmore Flea, and more thrown by Ultraworld's own Lonnie Fisher. We joined forces with Bombadillo by printing their logo and elements of their event branding as experiential marketing, plus complimentary images of their branding so festival goers could mix & match their own designs. Baltimore City Paper captured great photos of scene here. Follow us on Facebook to view our full album.
We had the joy of leading an after school work shop at A. Mario Loiderman Middle Magnet School for the Creative and Performing Arts in Silver Spring, MD. The kids line up and reveled in the creative event and were wowed by the instant results. Hire us for a workshop this Fall! Follow us on Facebook to view the entire album.
September 12 & 19, 2015 | We activated at the Opening Reception & H Street Festival for Art Whino’s signature, month long art summit, returning for the sixth edition of its immersive experience. The annual G40 Art Summit group art show brings together world-renowned artists for a month long exhibition, with works in Low Brow and street culture expression, that reflect a particular theme. The 2015 G40 event will once again be a building ‘takeover,’ showcased at a 20,000 square foot site in the heart of H St Corridor at 700 H Street, NE. Follow us on Facebook to view the full album.
September 10-11, 2015 | We were invited to live screen print the NextNOW Fest branding images on t-shirts to be gifted to guests. Our crew is growing now with a new employee and apprentice on board. We also increased our capacity and speed with two screen printers on our modified press that we so lovingly call "the two-headed beast." The NextNOW Fest at The Clarice is University of Maryland's creative welcome back to school celebration. The multi-day, multi-arts festival of fun and discovery brings artists and audiences together in surprising and intriguing ways that will make you re-think what is possible. Follow us on Facebook to view the entire album from this event.
September 4, 2015 | We were invited to participate in FOR THE LOVE OF BR!CK: LEGO BRICK GROUP ART SHOW curated by SUPERWAXX at The Fridge Gallery in DC. Over twenty-five local and national artists will create pieces that are composed of, incorporate or are inspired by LEGO® bricks. Most of the participating artists are based in the United States representing a wide range of creative backgrounds including contemporary fine artists such as sculptors, painters and illustrators as well as graffiti and street artists, graphic designers and comic illustrators. Follow us on Facebook to view the full photo album.
Learn more about the subculture behind what we do on this episode of Thrash Lab. Here they feature the most influential screen printers on the scene in the West Coast fashion capitol, Los Angeles. There are so many possibilities behind screen printing, but it takes patience and hard work to get to the instant gratification part. Design is the core foundation to the art of screen printing. PRINT IS NOT DEAD.
We are proud to announce that we have initiated a summer Mentorship Program inspired by husband & wife team Moses Rivera and Sheila Abellano of BeMoShe.
The skate deck has long been identified as the skater’s canvas. A place for self-expression and freedom, much like the art of skateboarding itself. Drawn to that same raw canvas, 30+ artists are creating custom decks for Studio SoHy’s second show of the year!
