Destination Art Market this Wednesday

I'm showing a few new embroidery pieces at a space in the Meatpacking District. The space is always warm and bright on cold nights, it's a good way to spend a Wednesday evening and worth the trip if you're free. Plus I'll be there, which is pretty great. The work is up till early January, so if you can't make it out Wednesday, get a cup of hot cocoa and come by on the weekend, it's close to the High Line Park.

Here's the official press release:

Canadianz vs Americanz

Canadian Illustrators beat the pants off us Americans. Seriously. And they're cuter. Dang.

Meet our freakishly talented northern neighbors:

Genevieve Simms
Josh J Holinaty
Michael Byers
Michael DeForge
Julie Doucet
Jillian Tamaki

I am suspicious that Leanne Shapton may be, since she made all those really pretty Toronto drawings.
