November 1st, 2010

Just wanted to thank everyone who voted for me in the Venus Magazine readers poll — I won Best DIY Designer in 2010!! I’m so honored, and humbled — thank you!

Speaking of DIY, design and all that: I’ve just updated the Boygirlparty shop with all kinds of wintry goods, such as the Four Seasons Magnet Set below. (To see all magnets click here) And — hooray! — my Orchard Owls Sticky Notes are finally back in stock after their initial sell out last spring!

Exquisite Book

October 12th, 2010

I’ll be in SF this Thursday, October 14th doing a live drawing / signing event for the Exquisite Book! The event begins at 7pm at Rare Device (1845 Market St; more info) and all are welcome! I’ll be there along with my awesome artist pals Julia Rothman, Lisa Congdon, Caitlin Keegan, Kelly Lynn Jones and others! Now, more about the Exquisite Book:

Curated by ALSO, 100 artists were asked to continue the lines from the drawing preceding them to create an ongoing panorama, similar to an exquisite corpse! Couple these 100 works of art with a really inventive book design comprised of 10 accordian folds, a playful foreword by Dave Eggers, and a great introduction by the folks at ALSO and there you have it! THE EXQUISITE BOOK [purchasable on Amazon or on Chronicle Books’ website]

Below is a photo of my page, and how it corresponds to the lines on the page preceding it, drawn by Lisa Congdon! Hope to see you at the event in SF!
