More Art to Share

I am fan of hand-pulled prints. Be they screen prints, etchings, lithography etc., I enjoy the fact that they are one of a kind pieces, each having unique little variations. There is something lovely about the fact that the artist printed each and every individual piece.

While vacationing in Salt Lake City in February, my friends and I stumbled upon a great little shop called Signed and Numbered, attached a hip little record shop called Slowtrain Records.

Signed and Numbered was founded by artist Leia Bell, a mighty cool screen printer and photographer. S+N's website is a bit under construction at the moment but you can find some info there. Also, their MySpace page will give you some insight into the shop as well.

I couldn't resist coming away with several fun prints.

First, the title of this print took my heart... Kitty Stardust. Check out the little Bowie kitteh!! Unfortunately, I can't make out the artist's signature:

Second, by Marina Atherton, this adorable mousey and a his gigantic orange strawberry:

And finally, an adorable sequence of neon orange bunnies by Alexa Unser called "What They Wish"

I have a screen printing kit just waiting for me to try it out. I can't wait!

Dirty Footprints Studio Talk with Connie!




Well, today is the day! My dear friend and fabulous blogging radio talk superstar, Connie of Dirty Footprints Studio is interviewing me at 12:00 EST! I'm excited AND nervous, but I know it will be a blast! I've had the privilege and joy of knowing Connie since high school when we were both beginning to explore what it meant to be an artist. Now, through the magic of the internet, we've been able to reconnect and share our journey again! Connie is funny, insightful, and an all around positive beautiful soul... if you aren't already familiar with her blog and work, I highly recommend checking out her blog and etsy shop!

If you can't listen and call in live (and I know this is awfully short notice!), the show will be available to listen in at your leisure!

Here is the link to the show:
