Artists Heal PH: support Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts in the Philippines

Artists Heal PH was created by sisters Nancy Mungcal, Michelle Mungcal and Neysa Bowers to help support Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts in the Philippines. It's a pop-up shop of art + goods that will be open from November 28 - December 31. All net proceeds will be donated to benefit The International Rescue Committee.

We've contributed one of our unframed prints, and many of our maker friends have donated pieces as well. Please go to the site and take a look at the wonderful items available, every little bit helps!

Ink+Smog Editions at West Coast Craft

Our panoramic view of the Bay from Fort Mason Center as the sun was setting on Sunday night.
Thank you so much to everyone who came out to see us this past weekend at the West Coast Craft show in San Francisco. We had such a great time catching up with old friends, visiting with family and meeting so many new and interesting people! These events are a lot of work, but they are so worth it!

Our WCC booth, including the amazing wall built for us just for the event!
Not only was this the very first WCC show, it was also our very first show on the road. We wrote a guest blog post about our experience for Academy of Handmade, you can take a look at it here. You can also check out some great photos of the event taken by SF Art Enthusiast.

L-R: Some of our new Bay Area items, some additions to the Greetings from… series, Neon Signs of the Bay Area and I Heart SF flat note card sets.
Since we were going to be in the Bay Area, we decided to launch some of the new designs we've been working on a little early! We now have a collection of Bay Area neon sign cards, as well as a variety of other Bay Area and San Francisco specific cards and prints. We should be listing them in the shop very soon!

L-R: Abacus Row, A Question of Eagles, Elyse Graham.
All in all, our first show away from home was a resounding success and we can't wait to do it again!

Hope everyone is having a great fall, we're certainly enjoying the foggy rainy days here in L.A.!


new stockist: Lula Mae in Pasadena

We're so excited to let you know that you can now find a selection of our cards and calendars at Lula Mae in Pasadena. Lula Mae is one of our very favorite Los Angeles area shops! If you've never been, run, don't walk over to see all their delightful gifts of wit and whimsy! We especially love how Marci has decorated for the holidays!
