Woah! I have just gotten a sneak preview of what the Linework exhibition catalog will look like.

The one day exhibit will be next week the 15th at Columbia College Chicago. 1006 s. Michigan ave room 407. 6-9 pm

Pictured: Sideshow Barnum & Bailey poster from Uncle Fun (RIP Chicago store), Japanese circus monkey and trainer trading card, photo of Paco awwww, fake bug Brittany gave me that I use to hold my cords, Marieke’s weird Phil Donahue screen print looks like a bug to me Bug Donahue.
Also worth noting sexy underwear packaging on windowsill. 
thanks for spending some time in my room!
