I have a new little obsession. It’s called Gocco Printing. This Wikipedia article has a nice little blurb on what exactly Gocco is. In a nutshell, it’s a Japanese printing process where you use light bulbs to burn your image into a screen. Then you print like crazy! (It’s very fun and easy). A few months ago I bought a Print Gocco system (a Riso PG-10 Super to be exact) and didn’t open it up for awhile because I didn’t know how to use it. Once I finally dusted it off, I was shocked at how easy it is to use the machine. They’re no longer in production, but they’re available on sites like etsy (where I bought mine) or ebay.
Yesterday I made a couple of new cards that I’m going to have at The Dallas Flea. By the way, are you coming to The Flea this Saturday? Hope to see you there!
Looking for something to do this weekend? Then look no further! Saturday I’ll be in the great company of local artists, vintage dealers, etc. at The Dallas Flea. I love doing this event because the quality of the shopping is quite fantastic and it’s a pet friendly event! (Always a plus). Hope to see you there!
My friend, Anna, and I have started up a little side project called Mosey! It’s a street style blog covering Dallas and Fort Worth, and so far it’s been so fun putting it all together. I’d be tickled if you’d hop on over and give it a visit, or perhaps even followed us on Twitter! (@moseystyle). Here are a few examples of images you’ll see over there, and who knows, you just might be our next feature!

They’re back! I’m officially starting my letterpress classes back up in October! I’m very excited to start the classes again after a long break. For more information and available dates, please visit the letterpress classes page and feel free to contact me with any questions!
In line at the post office yesterday these stamps caught my eye on a poster. Naturally, I had to grab a couple of sheets on my visit because I think the simple, modern design and homage to great American designers is fantastic. Not to mention the colors pop on any envelope.
