That feeling when you get to meet your creative hero and you both look in the wrong direction. Thank you @tomhanks for making all my only dreams come true. You. Are. My. Biggest Fan. #ThatThingYouDo #826valencia

Last Saturday I took some time off of cutting hair to play some music for my neighbors of the mission during the 3rd annual SF Porch Fest. Here's a clip of me singing an original song called "The Departed" 🎥 : @marie_antoinette88 #sfporchfest #missiondistrict #sanfrancisco #826valencia

Working on a letter to my 15 year old self for #826Valencia's 15 year anniversary. Doodling all the things I loved then (and still ❤️now) #comics #illustration #wip #nerdlife

Late post from last week's scholarship dinner. With my brother and my pal (best-selling writer, editor, and publisher) Dave Eggers. Author of "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" and "The Circle" (among others); the latter which is depicted in the new movie "The Circle" with Emma Watson and Tom Hanks.

Hey all! I'm gonna have some stuff at the Goods & Good Craft Fair at the 826 Valencia Tenderloin Center during Sunday Streets in the Tenderloin! The address is 180 Golden Gate... In the Tenderloin... Not at 826 Valencia st.... I know it's confusing. 12-5 come by!

I really could use some days without bad news and without hate. What do you do think, world? Can we please make that happen? — Illustration from a book I illustrated for @826valencia. 💙 •••• No me vendrían mal unos días sin odio y sin malas noticias. ¿Qué opinas, mundo? ¿Lo intentamos? — Esta ilustración forma parte de un libro que ilustré para @826valencia. 💙

Just a reminder, friends: if you're planning on dropping by my office, THERE ARE RULES.

I've been on a brief studio break this week while I researched our kids' next year of learning. I love tuning in to their developing selves and digging for juicy resources. It's similar to a studio practice - soul spelunking, casting a space for alchemy. #arim #artistresidencyinmotherhood #studiopractice #826valencia

Hell yeah,Brooklyn! The school I visited was a block away from @826nyc. I gave my extra books to them. The poet Erica, who volunteers there is nice. #moon #moonbook #supermoon #childrensbooks #826valencia #826valencia #mcsweeneys #writing #books #reading #writing #art

Well well well... If it isn't the Library @826valencia .
I popped in and grabbed a book of short stories and peeked in the back and was quickly allowed to snap a few pics!
826, aside from being an all-things-pirate store, is a youth tutoring center, workshop and now open mic. Right in the heart of the mission, it's a sweet little stronghold to the literary San Francisco, and the inspired youth around, as well as a positive placemat to the surrounding new businesses upping the Valencia business model. With hope it can stay locked down here as SF skyrockets i prices, and the genuine and creative fight for air!
In the Sf area? Consider tutoring or donating? In LA, NYC or Chicago? Checkout the 826 there!
