Unbeknownst to me, Krank Press's new bird calendar was featured in the LA Times today (I'm in Philadelphia right now, shrouded in fog). If anyone has found their way to this blog via the internets and is wondering if there are more calendars, there are indeed! I've reposted more calendars on Etsy and will keep an eye on the inventory to be sure they don't run out again.

This year's calendar is bird-topical--it was going to be a global "odd birds" compendium, but once we started researching we decided LA has at least 12 odd birds of its own. The full roster: the belted kingfisher, the surf scoter, the burrowing owl, the california quail, the brown pelican, the black-necked stilt, the black skimmer, the greater roadrunner, a show rooster, the common raven, the long-billed curlew and the eared grebe. I'm super happy with how it turned out, so much so that I will post more pics of the calendar when I have a chance to take them.

I've been lost in Krafttown what with all my efforts to get ready for Felt Club, but now that the felt club has so successfully come and gone, I should be updating this here blog. I'll start with general felt club documentation, thanks to Alex and his camera, and follow with close ups/descriptions of the new stuff, which honest-to-god only managed to come to complete fruition thanks to the help of Mom, Dad, Alex and Aandrea...

I just finished printing these cards for Geoff McFetridge--to accompany his (excellent) show at the Seattle Art Museum. totally thrilled to print stuff for Geoff + also totally happily surprised at how well the fine lines of his designs printed (see, particularly, man upside down on chair).
Mike provided me with a sketch of him + Jenee, which I old-time-ified, on account of their old-time Washington-slept-here wedding location. I also bought a perforation blade for the cutting board to make the rsvp cards. (We really did sit at one super long table at the wedding reception.)
