my favorite part of the evening…
Y’ALL... #allthefeels #forthereals #letterpressforever 💖 so, I have lots to post from not only last night/week, but how ink filled the last three Octobers have been here in the LBK, because I just love prints so damn much, but this... THIS MADE MY NIGHT / WEEK / YEARS: Lila, one of the most amazing best kids EVER, comes up to me at the October First Friday Art Trail - CASP UFOs OVER LUBBOCK inkslinger event, & gives me this beyond cool drawing of my golden retriever asking if she can trade it for my print about red hair because she loves that print so much & this....this, makes me so full of joy & reminds me why I love all of this so much & I’m just speechless & #happytears 😍😍😍 it’s going to always & forever be in whatever sketchbook I’m using at the time is (here it is on top of my current Baron Fig, w/ stickers of a few of my favorite things & the ribbon has a button of Andy Warhol eating a cheeseburger), alongside the other most important picture to me (my bee grandparents in NOLA) & lots of #love & more soon ✨
