Your Mom Woodblock

Hey all! Instead of a comic this week you get to see my hand printed woodblock side project! Aren't they cute? I printed these using a bastardization of the Japanese woodblock printing technique after observing it at the Southern Graphics Council convention I attended early this spring.

I also wanted to let you all know that I am currently in the process of compiling one page books for SELLING! Thats right! I have one page books ready to go to into envelopes and out to your mailman, if you so desire. Im working on getting together a place to sell these things in a fashion that would make sense... maybe Etsy? I dont know. But thats coming soon!

Also, have you guys read Three Shadows by Cyril Pedrosa yet? A friend of mine lent it to me and it was crazy good. Beautiful and heartfelt. I teared up a little at the end. Highly recommended.

Hi Claire;

Damn, I just wrote a bit here and when I went to send it the computer screwed me over. So here I go again.
Squeezin a loved ones zits; one of life's little guilty pleasures, eh. Brave of you to admit it, it's generally not spoken of.
Hey, there's an article in today's Inquirer about trying to save the big ship down on pier 83, in fact there's a lighting ceremony going on about this time; thought of you when I read it.
I think a YoMama woodblock would be more commercially viable, named after the great cello player YoMama.
My daughter is having surgery this month and I'm planning to stay at the warehouse so I hope I'll get to see your one pagers and buy a few. Maybe Jeff and you and me could catch some brekkie at the Dew-Inn, coffee brew-inn, people chew-inn.
