Silver seahorse necklaces
Campfire owl t-shirts
All pocket mirrors
And, now available! CAT T-SHIRTS in Unisex sizes! (As well as women’s, kids, and baby sizes — pink, too!)
Aside from all these shop updates (and more! Seriously, there are more.) I’ve been working on two picture books coming out in 2017! Peep some of my process photos over at instagram @boygirlparty.
Or, maybe even catch me painting live on Periscope!
And, if you’re in Minneapolis, MN on October 30, 2015: “Cosmos” at Light Grey Art Lab opens with an incredible group show, which I am proud to be a part of. I’m in the tarot deck, too.
