Shadow Art Fair debrief

Thanks to everyone who came out and made the art fair such an awesome time.  I had so much fun hanging out with all the vendors and shoppers.  The set up this year was a lot less cramped than in years past which made for a rather comfortable 12 hour event, all things considered.  I managed to sell a bunch of books and mini prints as well as some larger prints.  Elín and I split a shadow art fair specialty pizza from the Corner Brewery for lunch and we split a reuben sandwich for dinner; both were amazing and I'm now convinced that hummus has a legitimate place in the pizza world.

We also bought artwork from Brienne Willcock and Emi Slade.  And I got a haircut at midnight.

I'd like to offer a special thank you to Elín for sticking with me for the entire 14 hour ordeal, getting food for me, slapping me when I started to nod off, and manning the table when I had to make toilet.  And a special word of gratitude to Elín for crocheting me a set of the fanciest book ends ever to grace God's green earth.
Thanks shadow art fair, I hope to see you next year.

Shart Fair

I was accepted for Shadow Art Fair this year!!  SAF is an awesome event held at the Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti, MI.  When I lived in Ypsi, I was a 2-minute walk from the brewery.  It'll be great to go back and (hopefully) sell some books and prints.

This event is a charming response to the huge, city-wide mess held concurrently in Ann Arbor.

So yeah!  If you're in the area THIS SATURDAY, stop by for a beer and say hi.  The fair runs from noon to midnight, and it only costs two pennies to get in.
