Beaver Hanky

Price
$15

Here’s a brand new take on an old design from the animal hanky series: the Beaver! Originally designed and printed just before I moved from Pittsburgh to Toronto for grad school, as part of a “Canadian Realness” going away danceparty, but before I had spent a deep amount of time researching or spending time with beavers, both real and in the human social imaginary. I have developed a deep personal affinity for these hardworking, social, and kind of cheeky animals. They also occupy a crucial space in queer Canadiana, see the work of Wendy Coburn (tragically R.I.P.), Fastwurms, or the Beaver bar in Toronto. Flag freely and stump grind away!

Choose a hanky in either black ink on chambray fabric, or black ink on red fabric!

Rad Post-Teen Print of the Week: Palm Oil

March 4, 2015

After a long hiatus, I am reviving my Rad Teen Print of the Week series as Rad Post-Teen Print of the Week, to share the amazing work from university students and other post-teens that I’ve been working with here in Toronto. I first forayed into this zone a few years ago with Lauren Jurysta’s Free Pussy Riot silkscreen.
