Events

In the studio lately...

Lots has been happening around here in the last few weeks! 

  • I am VERY excited to announce that I am now represented by Jennifer Laughran, of Andrea Brown Literary Agency!!! I'm over the moon about having Jennifer as my agent, and can't wait to see what projects we will work on together. 
  • I spent the last week of October in New York City, catching up with friends and illustrators, eating 5/$1 dumplings, going to museums and seeing a spread from Sonya's Chickens displayed at the Society of Illustrators in their Original Art show, which celebrated the best children's books of 2015! What an honor to be chosen and shown alongside some of the most amazing illustrators alive today! 
  • I chatted recently with Karen Santhanum of the Storybook Spotlight podcast about my book, Sonya's Chickens and more! Thank you so much to Karen for having me!
  • My GRAY AREA zine is now available on Etsy, as well as Best Be Bernie shirts in a new color way, and more!

ETSY NEWS!

ETSY LOVERS!

On October 1st, 2015 my Etsy shop will open for a special APPAREL & ACCESSORY POP-UP! You will have a TWO WEEK WINDOW OF TIME (until Oct. 15th) to order whatever tees etc. your heart desires, which will be made to orderand will ship out after my shop officially launches on November 1st! 

This will allow me to make as much inventory as is purchased, i.e. I won’t sell out! It also gives me the freedom to add many *NEW PRODUCTS* such as new t-shirt color ways, kids tees, baby onesies and BERNIE SHIRTS (50% of profits of which will go to the Bernie Sanders campaign)!!!

This will mean that apparel orders are separate from other product orders. For instance, if you’d like to order a print and a t-shirt, you’ll have to do so at different times. 

TO RECAP:

If you want to buy t-shirts, onesies, tote bags etc. you have from October 1st-15th. These orders will ship out in mid November, as they are made to order.

If you want to order prints, cards & other paper products, sculptures and holiday ornaments, you can do so from November 1st-November 15th. 

Functioning this way will greatly streamline the way my fulfillment and business works.

All the screen printing of my apparel and accessories is done by the incredible Erin of Red Boots Design, based here in Bellingham, WA. Without her, I couldn't function! To see a video of Erin printing one of my new Feminism tees, check out my Instagram ! 

Thank you so much for your patience and support! 

Love, Phoebe

ATTN. Bellingham folks!

My Taproot magazine editor & art director Amanda Blake Soule and I will be hosting a Taproot sponsored OPEN CRAFT NIGHT at the Ragfinery in Bellingham, Thursday June 11th from 5-8pm!  If you haven’t been to the Ragfinery yet, it is one of my very favorite spots in town.
