Open Studio

On Sunday, February13, Junkprints will be having an open studio from noon-8pm. There will be talking scarves screaming Eff Winter, there will be menacing mittens, a live band more mysterious than mystery flavor kool-aid, and there will be a showcase of my Spring goodies from my 'JunkPrince' collection. So follow the yellow brick road to  The Junkyard. The live performance starts at 6:30pm but the golden gates open at 12. See you soon.

WHERE DID MY WEEK GO?

Sorry folks. Well let me fill ya'll in. I've been working on the Brooklyn Bodega site. Don't forget to get those Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival tickets. I'm planning on renegading the Roots Picnic with Junkprints stuff (yay the beginning of the JP road trips) and thought it was this weekend so I made a trillion of these wallets, but it's next (time to get my helmet adjusted). I've fallen in love with Yams at Grunge Cake Crisis magazine. Take a look at this video she did on me...it's a nice day and I'm super giddy.

DON’T SEE WATCHMEN

Honestly that movie sucked. My pal Jen (and Photo Biz partner) and went to see see it (we found tickets left in the machine, how lucky for us 😉 But upon watching Watchmen we realized why those tickets were left. About 5 people walked out of the theater. It was like X-men meets the Chronicles of Narnia. We had a blast at the Artists and Flea Market in Williamsburg. It was great to see Paulette (Dahlia Soleil), Ezra (Gmome NYC) and Georgia (holds down the event and makes amazing jewelry). Gosh I do miss vending and look forward to getting Junkprints out on the streets when it warms up...ooooh we're heading to Boston and DC this year...more on that later. Anyhoot, I love just about anything shiny, it's as if my inner drag must emerge! While purusing the goods I came across these amazing dungaroos by Jana of Knickers and No Fur Coats...I want all my underroos to be made by her.
