My Hands Are Filthy

So tomorrow night is Olympia's big old spring Artswalk.. and instead of showing paintings, I'm going to be hanging tough in my favorite ramshackle renegade printmaking hive, Community Print. If you're downtown, do stop by! We'll be having an open studio, print show, and print sale, and I believe there will be a letterpress demo. Come see how the MAGIC happens!

You can pick up one of these bad boys for ten bucks! Btw, isn't it time we all reclaimed that particular slang term? From now on, I'm gonna call mass rad super cool objects of desire 'bad girls'. Summer of bad girls, coming up!

Letterpressed Goodness

This is EXCITING: my friend Themba and I received a grant from the City of Olympia with which we can run creatively wild! We will be making a series of 10 letterpressed posters depicting lesser-known tidbits of Oly's 150 years (opium dens! gunfights! sloppy joes!). To gather inspiration, I started taking a look-see around the interweb, and found these beautiful pieces, which are on display RIGHT NOW at the University of Puget Sound's library gallery. Behold the Feminist Broadside Series, designed by Chandler O’Leary of Anagram Press and printed by Jessica Spring of Springtide Press:

Beauty! The pink and orange print is still available right here.

With Extra Flair

I think I just wanted to hang onto Hawaii tight and never let it go, and so I stopped updating the blog. BUT! I have an art opening happening this Thursday, April 16th in lovely Tacoma, Washington at Two Vaults gallery. Among the new work is..

And now I have a very rambunctious, but patient, feral Ibizan Hound staring at me longingly, and so we must go on a forest adventure. Hope to see you Thursday! I'll tell you all about my next project on the horizon, involving teapots and letterpressed Black Flag lyrics. (I had a vision).
