35W Bridge Collapse

35W north end
I live like two feet away from the bridge and thought my apartment was falling down when I heard the noise and felt it shake, so I went outside and saw a big dust cloud where the bridge used to be.

Newly Acquired Wood Type

I just got this type cabinet. The cabinet itself is in pretty rough shape, but the gold is the 10 drawers of wood type. All complete fonts and all in really good shape. Alittle dusty and with some superficial surface mold, but nothing a wipe with a rag won't take care of. If you want to see whats inside click here.

No Coast

The No-Coast Craft-o-Rama went, I thought, really well. Over 8,000 people came. It was pretty crazy all day. I made a ton of sales and contacts, and I sold a lot of Eireann's stuff too. A couple of local shops also talked to me about carrying my stuff, which would be cool.

I'm going to apply for the 2007 Saint Paul Craftstravaganza, which will be on Saturday, April 28, 2007 from 9am to 4pm at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds Fine Arts Building. I think the Fine Arts Building will be a really great place for it.

I'm hoping to get some photos taken of my new cards this week so I can finally start posting here again! I'm also working on my website and getting my online shop up and running.

A long time coming

I finally had some time to get my website together. It still needs some work, but its actually on its way to being something alot more functional and informative. Check it out.

I quit my job.

Today was my last day at work. I plan to focus on my own work: prints and letterpress things.

I recently accepted the Jerome Emerging Printmakers' Residency at Highpoint Center for Printmaking. It's a nine-month residency with full access to a printshop and materials. I'm most likely going to be making a bunch of etchings. Maybe some in combination with screenprinting.

No more office for me.

new cards done

I am working on a huge batch of flat and folded cards (among other things) for Eireann's table at the Design Fiesta, which is on Saturday. These are three of the new designs: bicycle, frog, interlocking fishes. Last night we ground all the ink and I printed these. Tonight I'm printing the birdcage, double birds, and probably two other blocks. Good times.

Should we abolish capital letters? I think so.

We also watched part of the TV series "Weeds" yesterday, while grinding the ink. It was pretty good.

There are more photos on my flickr account (
