UICB Spring Open House

Hooray, we're opening our house again! This one's extra special, with calligraphy demos by Cheryl Jacobsen and her students, and a large-format papermaking demo by Tim Barrett and his students out on the front lawn. Yes, outside - these sheets are 3' x 7' and require teams of 3 people to make. Tim will be the official MC.

It'll look a little like this, with lots more sunshine.

Monster Alert

My monster will be one of many monsters in "A Friendly Altercation," a show where "artists band together to take on monsters, in a battle of creative proportions." Thanks to Jason Whitman for putting together this show, making the monsters, and for putting up with the artists.

New prints at Etsy

I've posted two new prints at my Etsy site, Heroes & Criminals Press.

These are also available at the White Rabbit Gallery in Iowa City, and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts store in Minneapolis.

Team Zine

I've just joined Etsy's Team Zine. According to Alex Wrekk, "The Etsy Team Zine seeks to bring together the zine contingent on Etsy, raise awareness of zines within Etsy, and bring other zine editors to Etsy creating a vibrant and diverse selection of independently published titles available on the site." To see who else in on the team, just do a search for "TeamZine" in tags. Or just search for zines - you'll find plenty of good onees out there. Some of my personal favorites:
