This Saturday 1/27, from 2-6pm, I’ll be at @mcmenamins Kennedy School repping two small businesses I co-run: @shopheladorosa + @octopusbookspoetry. Both have brand new things to show off, and I’m hoping you’ll want to see (own) those things. We’ll be joined by @lo__ihi @saplunkettnaturals @pearlsodacompany @flumeleatherco and @moline_jewelry. Grab a drink in one of the bars and then come buy some stuff and support small local businesses.
The collaborative zine I made with @katebingburt called Belongings: the Stories Behind our Stuff is now in its 3rd printing! You can buy it in Kate’s Etsy store, kateconsumption.
We tested these 9 erasers today to erase text from old books during my Erasure workshop @outletpdx . The Mono sand eraser works the best for this particular task. Repost from @outletpdx
That’s @hquinnifer on the broadside, @andrewdevriesbarton on the book it’s from, @iprc on the vibes for the reading tonight, and me on the poem. 1, 2, 3, 4...
Tonight at the @iprc_pdx , Two Plum Press has a treat for you: a lineup of readers of which I am one. I’m gonna read poems from HEAR OARS. They’re like little oars at the bottom of the sea.

My illustrations of Georgia O’Keeffe + Ozzy Osbourne framed and hung in Kisha Schlegel’s kitchen. These were drawn in celebration of Kisha’s forthcoming book, Fear Icons (Mad Creek Books). And that’s Lindy on the couch. #zdrawshisfriends
