SKIN: the seduction of surface // Mosom Maskwa - Pawakan (Grandfather Bear - Spirit-Guides) // On a Path to Learning: Early Nova Scotian Women Artists

Sales low, fun day.

It's true! I only sold one zine at Zine Dream last Sunday. But not to worry, the day was great fun. Thanks to Sarah Pinder for being my table buddy. And Shari for visiting and being incredibly amusing, as usual :)

Plus I'm super excited about what's going on over with these folks: paperpusher.ca - beautiful work.
