Shop update!

It's my first shop update since I opened it in 2006. Can you believe it?

First, I've got some silkscreened prints. I have so loved learning to silkscreen, and you'd better bet I'll be in that lab until I graduate, cranking out more whenever I have the time.

"Crossed Lines" - 7 color silkscreen on medium weight cream Rives BFK. Inspired by the Mission District in San Francisco, kinda where we used to live, and where part of my heart will stay.

"Dear Prudence" - 9 color silkscreen on heavy weight cream Rives BFK. It's a fancy lady with peonies, faceted beads, and a bird wing.

Next up, ten -- count 'em TEN -- altered playing card paintings. I did a suit of playing cards (hearts of course) for a show at E2 Gallery in Eureka, California back in December. 7, 8, and the Queen sold at the show, and now the rest of the suit is up for grabs in my shop.

So there you have it!

A Free Print at Indie Fixx

First of all -- hey, hi. This is my new art and illustration blog. Perhaps you added the rss feed to your reader in like 2005 when it was my knitting blog, and now suddenly I'm posting again and it's like Christmas! Except no more knitting posts here. It's all art, all the time. I'm gonna do my best to use this space for news and updates.

Second of all -- the awesome Jen Wallace at Indie Fixx has been running a project called Feed Your Soul. She's commissioned a whole gallery of really great FREE (exclusive) prints for our download. What a great idea! Jen W asked me to participate, and my contribution went up today.

Fun! Anyway, go visit and download some art! I just got a badass new Epson and I can't wait to print some of these pretties for my walls. Thanks Jen W!
