Feeling Like A “Real Artist” with a Show at The Shop Friday

1411_November-01

Well my last post was about how I feel like an artistic poser at times. So I am thrilled to say that I will have work on display at November First Friday in San Mateo at my favorite printshop/workshop space/gallery The Shop at Flywheel Press. I’m feeling more like a real artist already!

I’ll be showing work next to some very talented ladies, including the lovely Rachelle Kaldani.

I’m displaying original watercolor and ink sketches that went into making my zines. I’ll have copies of the zines for sale too! All super affordable because everyone should get to own art.

Hope to see you at the opening reception this Friday, November 7, 6-9pm at 309 7th Ave, San Mateo, California 94401.

Here’s a peek at what’s to come.

Growing Up Half Ass[yrian] Zine

photo(19)

The much-anticipated zine is here! Okay, maybe you haven’t heard anything about it, but it is here.

We have compiled some of our favorite blog posts and created a zine about growing up half-Assyrian and half-white. We made some drawings with watercolors based on our childhood photos and rewrote the stories on our grandmother’s typewriter. It was a lot of work but we are so happy with the result!

If you are in the San Francisco area, come to the SF Zine Fest Saturday and Sunday 11am – 5pm.

We would like to thank our beautiful mother, Odette, for her olive inspiration, our Aunt Marlin for her always fun parties and stories, Julia for hide-and-go-seek, Larkin for her beauty, Pam for editing on such crazy short notice, Rachelle and Rochelle for the Assyrian writing help, and our friend Jeff from J & N Printing in Belmont for cutting our pages for free!!!
