Cool downtown creative supply store Hand-Eye Supply is about to debut their new catalog. Rather than the usual boring studio shoots, however, they hired photographer Christine Taylor to shoot portraits of Portland creatives doing their own things in their own studio/environments. Of course, there are products involved, but the feel is more editorial than what you think of when you hear that word "catalog."

They're pretty pleased with it—so much so that they're hosting a launch party to celebrate its release (along with a limited edition Hand-Eye/Vanport Outfitters apron collaboration called the American Craftsman Apron) on Friday, November 18 from 6-9 pm. Drop by for a copy, snacks and bevvies, and a look at some of the photos hung up and framed. In the meantime, take a peek at the portraits featured, like this one of Ms. Wood's Ben Wood (holding a platform shoe in progress), and a few more after the break.
