"year of the rat" opening


last thursday night was the opening of the year of the rat exhibit at PROOF gallery. it was a fun night! lots of really great prints by 100 or so artists from around the world. lots of very interesting interpretations of the whole "rat" concept too.

i really liked this little handmade book by carolyn eady. she said she was thinking about the michelangelo painting in the sistine chapel when she made it.


and it was nice to run into akemi who paul and i haven't seen in ages. i loved her print but unfortunately my camera didn't do it justice.


here's a wee peek at a couple of the brooches i made for the show.

Hi Krissy aka ratgirl,
I bought the underpants earrings from you at your first one of a kind show and i LOVE them....except i lost the girlie one...so all i have is the tidy whitey...
