I’m reading some of Ai’s poems and selling prints of my portrait of her tonight at the Metro Lounge at Union Station to celebrate @crowandkey’s 40th anniversary publication of Killing Floor.
I’m very proud of my work publishing @octopusbookspoetry. We are hard at work on a few new titles for the spring. And here is a sneak peek of one of them. Things That Go by @lauraeveengel .

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the @iprc_pdx , I’ve donated my portrait of Shirley Jackson to be made into prints for the 20x20x20 print show and sale fundraiser. It will take place on Wednesday, 11/14 from 6-9 at @tillamookst . Meet the other 19 donating artists, and the printmakers who made all the prints at the IPRC. Show up. Buy prints. Support the IPRC.

My dad’s father, John Schomburg (1921-1955), was a grocer in Staplehurst, NE. A happy #diadelosmuertos to him.
I made a sketch of the poet, Ai. (Pencil on paper board, 16 x 21). My drawing is my contribution to celebrate the official release of @crowandkey ‘s 40th anniversary publication of Ai’s Killing Floor. You can celebrate too. On Nov 15 at Metro Lounge at Union Station. Readers, drinks, books, and prints of my drawing will be on sale. #zdrawshisfriends #aiogawa
