I’ve been tweeting and posting on Facebook about my most recent FAB.com sale—but I realized I never posted it here! The sale is currently running and will be up until Wednesday. There are lots of new designs and everything is about 30% off regular price. Go check it out!
Recently I was asked to contribute a pattern design for a friendly “art battle” on the new site Art Battle LA. I accepted the challenge and reworked a pattern I had done for the I Love My Bike book. There’s still one day of voting left…. so head on over and vote! I won’t be sad if you vote for Harriet Seed, she’s great!
There will be a limited number of books available at the event—so come and grab a copy! I also heard rumors of ice cream. Ride your bikes! Matt & Brittain will be photographing people for the I Love My Bike website.
