I designed some new fish cards with nineteenth-century illustrations that I got from a clip art book we bought today from Necromance. It's kind of a creepy (but cool!) store that smells like incense and dead things, and Matt wanted to look for a bird skull for a birdhouse he's working on. The clip art book has great illustrations of animals and insects, and I'm designing a bunch of cards and selling them on etsy.
I've also finished two t-shirt designs and hope to try one out tomorrow, after we check out the Rosebowl Flea Market. Matt and I are checking into getting a book in the arts & crafts section in Octoboer, and I'm also going to look for new painting photos.

Sorry, I haven't been painting much because I've been helping Matt with his hand-painted magnet business, and trying to teach myself to screen print t-shirts. I've done a simple one, and this weekend I hope to do some for his shop, but I'll post it here as well. We'll be getting ready for the Handmade for the Holidays craft show on the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving in Los Angeles on Melrose and Fairfax. I hope to get this screen printing thing down so I can have a bunch of shirts to sell. We're also going to try to sell at the Rosebowl Flea Market in October, so we're going to check it out tomorrow. We've been there before, but this time we'll be checking out the arty booths, though I may wander into the old photo area for some new source material as well.
