the paper crane coop

The Paper Crane Coop, ink and digital

Just put the finishing touches on this piece Tuesday, and sent it off to the printers yesterday! This piece rounds my print total to a healthy number 10.

In other Calgary Expo news, one of my prints was selected to be published in this years Calgary Expo Artbook which I am really excited about! Part of me still thinks they may have made a mistake and I won't appear in it, but at any rate I will not be posting the final image that was reportedly selected until after the book has been released on the weekend. This year's artbook theme was "Dreams and Wishes" and fittingly supports the charity "Make a Wish Foundation". The artbook is a hard cover and is limited to 1000 numbered copies which will be $25 to pre-purchase and $30 at the show (The Expo Store is located at booth 815). There will also be an auction that some of the artists will be participating in. For more details and to check out the cover art, go here. Also check out Bri Raymond's blog here, an illustration of hers will also be featured in the artbook, and she will have a booth at the expo as well.

Make sure to check back to the blog tomorrow morning for the last pre-expo post!

I had a hard time finding a fitting paper crane song this morning but take a listen to TV on the Radio's "Killer Crane" song off their new album below:
