The latest issue of Art in Print featured an article that kindly mentions my Struwwelpeter artist book.
Written by Courtney R. Thompson, the article covers the recent “Pulled, Pressed, Printed” exhibition at EXPO 72 Gallery. The show featured various Chicago artists and spaces, including Spudnik Press, where I completed the book during the artist residency.
Many thanks to everyone who came out to the opening last Saturday! It was lovely to see so many great friends and meet new ones. I am so grateful for the lovely and warm reception.
The exhibition will run through September 1st, at the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative in Lincoln Square.

A quick update on my artist residency at the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative…
I wanted to a series of relief woodcuts based around a story I wrote some time ago. When I finish, there will be ten woodcut prints and a story page. Overall, it has been a slow, learning process, but it is exciting to see it start coming together.

A huge thanks to everyone who came out to the Struwwelpeter opening event at Quimby’s!
It was so much fun and I feel incredibly thankful to be around so many talented and amazing people! I didn’t have a chance to photograph so it’s a good thing that Liz at Quimby’s did :)
