11 Days Left: Show Preview!

If you've been counting down with us you have probably seen a healthy sampling of the zine and show. Today's post is another generous dosing of show preview! We hope you'll help us spread the word the closer we get to the opening night. Lots left to do, but we can't wait to get these goods in your hands.

Also, we plan on selling the zines and prints online through Artful Goods the same weekend as the show.

14 Days Left: Printing With Keegan Meegan

Accompanying our first zine at the show will be 9 limited edition screen prints and a screen-printed card set hand-pulled by our awesome friend Keegan who makes up 1/2 of Keegan Meegan Press & Bindery. Above are pics from the time we spent in his studio as he slaved away on these delicious prints. If you need screen printing or letterpress done, he is the dude to contact. We are so excited for the show and it's rapidly approaching! Enjoy the sneak peaks!

New Pattern

Finished up a giant poster that will be a gift with the first 10 zines at the show and the first 10 zines sold online. This pattern is a tiny section of the illustration on the poster but we thought it was pretty cool. Maybe will make wrapping paper out of it, who knows... Have a great weekend.
