Over the last 4 months, I’ve been able to steal a few minutes here and there between teaching during Covid (0% fun BTW) to work on my Appalachian Print Collection project.
Things are brewing behind the scenes– here is some recent (and much appreciated) news!:
(1) Tanuki Prints now has an assistant, Halle Castille, who is handling much of the social media coordination and is also essential in both binding books and kicking John in the rear-end when he needs it!
(2) The A.T. prints are to be featured in winter issue of “Journeys“– The Appalachian Trail Conservancy’s magazine. I’m looking forward to reaching dedicated hikers and supporters while giving back to the organization.
(3) I am also involved with a project that I can’t wait to tell the world– however, it will just have to wait. Yes, I am “dangling”, but all will be revealed soon. Let’s just say that I can’t imagine having a more meaningful honor from the national hiking community.
(4) Tanuki Prints will join the ranks of many of my Japanese woodblock friends when I am interviewed by “The Unfinished Print“ podcast later this month- I’ll send a link as soon as the pod is ripe.
