Kaiah doesn’t care how many things I have to finish this week. She has her own agenda. Mostly putting her face ALL THE WAY into EVERY bush we pass. #doggo #thepuplife

Glad to be ending the day with my lovely @uarts_ce students, teaching Hemp Leaf and Drum-Leaf book structures. 🍃📖🍂📚🍁 Only one class left and I don’t know where the time has gone. Glad for moments when I remember to document my days.

Happy August! Let’s not think about everything I’m supposed to do by the end of the 2018 and instead look at what I was doing last year.
August 2, 2017 I was in Newark with @maryybunnzz, shooting the shit in her old studio, surrounded by her beautiful paintings and catching up on all that was changing.
.
I don’t think I have ever genuinely realized how quickly and permanently things change except in Fall when the winds turn right. And damn do I miss everything.

Kaiah’s been enjoying her time at Durham Press, even if she always looks bummed. (Secrets in the background!! Don’t tell!)
Thank you @breydenmann for taking this fantastic picture of the little diva.

Sometimes you have to get the very last bit of ink out from under a thick layer of dried ink. @peterkrutyeditions have a can opener for that.
.
I love this so much because I have definitely had that moment where I thought opening the bottom of the can would be so much easier than going through the dried layers.

Some book babes and I wrote a book about making books thanks to the @centerforbookarts and Rockport Publishers and it’s available for pre-order. (Link in bio.)
📚
Chapters by @cordeiropaulana, @insteadyflight, @sarahsmoth and myself. Would NOT have been possible without @amuntges constantly wrangling us as well as contributing a ton. Plus the Center and Rockport, obviously, for being generally amazing and integral. And of course thank you, thank you, thank you to @cbohn for the headshot and for (patiently and happily) photographing all of us making the books!

Another Zine class down at the @centerforbookarts! I love teaching zines because I get to see what everyone makes but also because I selfishly get to make my own work during class too!

Wish I could be in Memphis for the @memphiscollegeofart We Rise exhibition celebration on July 13. My artist book “Beloved” is in the show among other super awesome alum work. You should stop by if you’re around MCA on the 13th, 6-9pm.
