Sea of Love

It's here!
DOMA asked me to illustrate their 2012 limited addition letterpress Valentines Bag this year. They are a local coffee roaster located in Post Falls, Idaho, and their bags are deliciously letterpressed by my buddy Chris Dreyer over at at Dreyer Press.

(You may also this post from my first trip Chris's studio.)

I snuck over while Mr. Dreyer was setting up the press and printing the first color...a rare treat not many get to experience. Chris works out of an old warehouse next to the train tracks. His studio is way down in the basement in what used to be a walk in cooler. A word of warning - Do not let this chaos fool you. Chris Dreyer is a magical creator. Seeing the madness behind this lovely bag might just make you appreciate it a teensy bit more.
The coffee comes in a recycled paper craft bag printed with soy based ink. For the coffee this year they chose an Organic Colombian with strong notes of cherry, sweet tarts and fleur de sel caramel. Smooth body with a long, clean honeyed finish.

You can pick it up online from DOMA or locally:

Guess who's back? I try to blog when I can and not worry about it when it becomes too taxing...But then comes the guilt.

I made a pretty little picture because I missed you. ♥

Exciting things are brewing...literally. Coffee! Monday marks the release of my letterpress coffee bag from DOMA. I will post about this next with images and such (in a day or so). Also, I am making beautiful new works for my first out of Spokane solo show and instillation this coming March. I can't wait to give sneak peeks!

Hope you all had lovely Holidays! 2012 seems to be off to a grand start.
