Did I even see Jen on her birthday last week??

Hmm, I don't think so... But I still made her a card because my love for her just bubbles over and soils the stovetop with a sort of gravy that becomes crusty and has to be scraped off months later with steel wool and maybe a knife.

Whew!

That's a lot of love!

GET IT?!?! CAT-SUP???

Omg, it just doesn't stop over here!

Do you need to sell something? You do??

PUT A CAT ON IT.

That sweatshirt is not to be worn ironically and can be yours for a mere $65.

But really, it's not even realistic. What sort of galaxy is full of white kittens and multi-colored roses?? 

And where's the wine and unicorn?? 

All of those adorable kittens in space DID inspire a graduation card. Don't ask me why. DON'T ASK ME.

Don't tell Blockbuster Video, but I still have a VHS copy of Alive in my attic. 

I just love survival dramas. *I* survived the heat last week, it was pretty dramatic... But I ate no one, despite feeling very hungry. To celebrate, the Intern and I set some type.

AND THEN I wrote/designed more cards for RSVP, deadline is TOMORROW. 

No big deal. Chosen card(s) just go into the Major Supermarkets.

ART, I say!

ART!

RSVP asked me for some new art, SPECIFICALLY for 16th birthdays, BUT stay away from the subject of driving?

Um, ok.

How about the subject of dog poop?

I KNOW this is a derivative of MY OWN card.

AND a card I made for ANOTHER Art Licensor. Recycled Paper Greetings.

They also asked for some Wedding Cards... Maybe I'll say something about flatulence, MAYBE I WON'T.

Madge The Intern and I wore our Burger King© crowns and spent the day printing.

Does Madge look different??

So serious.

Zeichen Press was invited to join other Notorious Letterpress Printers and contribute to The Smallest Museum In St. Paul. Don't pretend you've never thought about turning an empty firehose cabinet into a tiny museum.

Action shots:

 

I was pretending to be a mouse with a camera — I think Madge was scared/intrigued.

The (petite) Opening Reception is August 1, from 2-4 at Workhouse Coffee Bar.

I’ve observed the greedy, groping limbs of an Octopus on television.

I SEE YOU, OCTOPUS.

I SEE YOUR SELF-INDULGENT, FLESH-LIKE, SUCTION-COVERED BOUGHS, BUMPING ALONG THE OCEAN FLOOR.

Sea Creatures are on my mind because I’m back in Barnstable.

Ah, Barnstable. How is it possible for the sunsets to always fill me with awe, the hammock to always fill me with peace, and people to always fill my belly with booze on the deck overlooking the Great Salt Marsh?

IT’S A TOUGH LIFE.

Oh, BOTHER!

One more kitten needs adopting.

AND how about this card?

BECAUSE ALL I EVER THINK ABOUT IS CATS. 

Help. Me.
