Star Trek Stamps

My other stamps have been selling well, and I just finished the Original Series, so I decided to make some Star Trek stamps!






This stamp is offically the only "Green Blooded Hobgobin" Merchandise on Etsy.

Resistance is Futile. You know you need one. My Etsy!

Hand Carved Stamps

Last month, as part of my dayjob at KCAI, I carved several stamps of plaza buildings for the Plaza Art Fair (Where KCAI Coutinuing and Professional Studies had a childrens activity booth). Anway, people loved my stamps. Especially my mom, who wouldn't stop raving about them and insisting that I needed to sell them.
I decided to make a few stamps aimed toward the Etsy seller.

ArtWalk!

The Lawrence ArtWalk was great! 
Thanks to everyone who came to visit or to purchase my wares!

My parent's garage, lookin' great.



On sunday I made prints on demand.
My new friend Bert, a papermaker from Independence!
She saved fruit stems for two years and made paper out of them.
Amazing!

Lawrence Art Walk

I'm gearing up for the Lawrence Art Walk next weekend!

On Saturday, October 29th, I'll be giving papermaking demonstrations from from noon to 3. 
While the pulp lasts, you can make a few sheets if you'd like!

On Sunday, October 30, I'll be demonstrating block printings from noon to 3.

Both days, I'll have a shop set up where you can see and buy all of my paper products. 

See you there! At 1946 Louisiana.

Today I put some freshly cooked Flax in my beater. 
It looks very promising!

Cooking Flax


Cooking fiber for the first time! After much searching, I ended up getting a Bayou Classic turkey fryer burner and stainless steel pot designed for home brewing. Plus the propane tank, it was about $150.
Not bad, considering that now I can make paper out of pretty much any plant, including things that I can harvest locally.
