Nearsighted Narwhal:

Besides dropping off more blank note cards with original block prints or computer printed Sumi-e from my original paintings today, I left ten of my mini collages from last year’s Avanti Art & Design 30X30 Challenge Exhibit.

Their Workshop call:

The Nearsighted Narwhal is an indie bookstore devoted entirely to the books, zines, and comics of self-publishers and small presses. We also carry original art and prints, local music, and handmade goods. Our mission is to establish ourselves as a self-publishing community center where you can not only come to learn new things but to also have a place devoted to helping you sell your goods and connecting  the readers with the writers.

July 12th Block Printing

July 26th Travel Journal Sketching with watercolor pencils
