This Valentine’s/Galentine’s/Anti-Valentine’s Day, I made you Sylvia Plath valentines.
Some photos I took of The Newsstand last July (not long after it opened), in honor of its last day at the Lorimer stop.
I’ve just added this drawing to my Society6 shop, where you can grab it as an art print!
SNEAK PEEK: here’s my submission to the BRASS IN POCKET companion zine. I illustrated a quote by one of our artists, Lynnette Miranda!
WANNA SUBMIT? The deadline has been extended through October 20: http://bit.ly/19J1Vwc
OMG. Just in time for V-Day, you can purchase this online as a print from my new Society6 shop.
The Media’s year-in-review issue is *live* and I am very proud of everyone who contributed…
Cynthia sent out 31 postcards, and I was the lucky recipient of one. Don’t you think she should make a stationery line?
REALLY wishing I could have made it to Illinois for this conference, but I’m following along on Twitter at #hiphopandpunkfem (the conference handle is @hiphoppunkfem).
Hip Hop and Punk Feminisms is an incredible conference that’s opening later today at the University of Illinois.
So many great scholars, activists, artists and performers will be in conversation, as well as creating and doing throughout the weekend. Here’s a snippet of the description from the conference event invite:
"This conference will bring together artists, activists and academics to stage new conversations about women of color and women of color feminisms across cultural forms too often perceived to be wholly distinct – hip hop and punk. Both hip hop and punk have received significant scholarly attention since the 1970s, but despite their near-simultaneous emergence in global cities wrought anew through multiple, devastating wars and global economic restructuring, rarely are the two brought into conversation with each the other. With this conference, we hope to disrupt status quo narratives and present wholly new analytic and aesthetic investigations about race, sex, and the creation of categories of deviance; queer of color critique and women of color feminist epistemologies; social movements, activism, and art; and much more."
The additional flyer included here is for yet another conference event, a night of performances and readings. For all events, invites and even more up-to-date info see the Hip Hop and Punk Feminisms Facebook page. I sincerely hope that this conference continues past 2013!
