I've been posting so much on my Facebook Fan Page that I've neglected the blog! A very busy September kicked off with new prints and participation in the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago, now in its 8th year! Its come a long way from the tents in wicker park, this past weekend's fair was huge with over 300 vendors on Division street and crowds in the thousands! Thanks to all who came out! Here's a pic of my friend Erin Paige Armstrong , who helped me this weekend, and my eldest daughter drawing Gypsy Moths in the tent:
5 Owl Totem:
I was asked by the Renegade Handmade crew to make an owl-inspired piece for the HOOT show in their Spotlight Gallery (alongside work from Dolan Geiman, Shawnimals and many other talents.) I had a good time making this Owl Totem, featuring 5 owls (From bottom to top: Great Horned Owl, European Barn Owl, Snowy Owl, Scopes Owl, and Pygmy Owl.)
The print is 14 x 25 inches, and is 4 colors in 2 different colorways. The print is available in the Etsy Shop.
Last but not least. Every year at the Renegade I have a table with clearance prints. They range from test prints , misprints, and stuff I've had for a long time and need to clear away to make space for new work. I am offering up a version of this online, except this is amped up with a few other things as well....
The Mega-Mystery Print and Shirt sale!:
This is a pretty cool thing. Each tube will have 6-7 prints and a random shirt. The Prints will be : Testprints, misprints, slightly less than perfect prints, 2 editioned prints, and a shirt in your size randomly picked from my new line of shirts coming out right now. I have about 50 tubes worth packed up- some pretty neat stuff in these!
IN ADDITION: one lucky person will get a copy of my flying buffalo monoprint which is on wood panel, 18 x 24!!
available now in my etsy shop!!
