Graphic Canon Volume 1

The Graphic Canon Volume 1: From The Epic of Gilgamesh to Shakespeare to
Dangerous Liaisons
 (Seven Stories Press) (phew) comes out today! One of my
contributions, Outlaws of the Water Margin, is in this volume. I got my contributor’s
copy last week, and it looks really good – there’s a great diversity of styles that goes
well with the breadth of source material.


I’ll be attending a book launch / signing event at the Rubin Museum of Art tomorrow
(May 23). Come  by if you’re in the neighborhood!

Renegade Craft Fair 2011

Partyka and friends at the Renegade Craft Fair! Saturday ranged from damp/misty to downright soggy, but a
surprising number of people were walking about.
Another handsome display. Not pictured: the ever-growing lake infiltrating from behind the booth, under the
table of prints.
Sally Madden was hard at work all day doing “Portraits in 60 Seconds”.
It was a crowd pleaser!
Jokes were told.
