Upcoming art show

I have a show with my good friend Chris Bettig opening in Los Angeles on November 16. It's at The Harmony Gallery, 5911 Franklin Ave, Hollywood, CA 90028. I will be showing some new collages and Chris will be showing some new drawings. I am planning on being there for the opening and spending the weekend in LA. Stop on by, check out the show and say hi!

sweater is now complete

the sweater i began last month is finished! i invested in some nice yarn, though not as nice as the one specified in the pattern, and used my travel time to make something for myself. the pattern, from Joelle Hoverson's Last-Minute Knitted Gifts, is brilliant. it's all in the round with simple but nice looking increases and decreases. and the neckline, cuffs and hem are all finished in a way i haven't done before: you knit in a hem and separate it from the body of the sweater by a purl row. you just turn the hem under and sew it down and you have a nice purl edge that looks quite professional.

now i will try to set aside the knitting for a while. i will be home for a while and will be attempting to prepare for an art show i will be in early next year.

i am so excited to announce that the new plate and mug designs that i did for Urban Outfitters are going to be available very soon! i was able to pick these up in one of the New York City stores and soon they will be in all locations. i don't know yet if they will be available on the website but i will let you know when i find out. both are part of an artist designed series of products and will have my name and website printed on the bottom.
the ceramic dishes and mugs both retail for $14. get them while they last!
