Justin is going to do a lot of carving today. I think it looks adorable. The milk glass vases on the top shelf will be black and white. The candles on the second shelf will be black and ambery yellow. Three more colors still up in the air!

Out-takes from Candle Shoot

My kids adore the candles! My son, the sensual one, is taken in by the  scent. My daughter is a fan of the color and the baby loves to touch, carry, and sort them. Honestly, they make great natural, Waldorfy play sets! The final pic below shows my daughter as the Queen Bee–she made a candle crown!

Hang this on your wall and people will be like WTF is Fresh Pastry Stand? And  you can be all like I am so cool I got it on Kickstarter! Yup.

Here is a pic of the initial ink sketch on the linoleum block. It will be more detailed once cut.

Linocut for Kickstarter Poster

ImageImageImage

Very excited that my Kickstarter project is going to launch soon. I commissioned a really big linocut poster to offer as a reward. This will be a 5 color screen print, limited edition. Also, the design will be used as a 1 color letterpress postcard. Logo will be pulled from this artwork. I am just so freaking plussed about how this is turning out. Berlin artist Justin P. Moore is the man wielding the knife and art skills! You can stalk him here, hereherehere, and soon on Kickstarter, too!
