Nicole J. Georges' Queer Animal Kingdom calendaris as adorable as it is enlightening. Rejoice in the happiness of companionship and love as you flip through the super sweet drawings that fill each page along with reminders for each of your favorite holidays. A true bargain at only $9 each, you might even want to frame the drawings at the end of the year!
Claire Nereim takes a different approach to the calendar year! She presents us with the Seasonal Fruits of California! One ripening fruit for each month of the year! This isn't a traditional calendar with dates that will change from year to year, but instead is a lovely full-color silkscreen print that you will enjoy for years to come! $45 each.

We were psyched to read Brian Libby's great review of Daniel's show in today's Arts and Entertainment section of the Oregonian! I Heard It Through The Grapevine has been such a fun exhibition and we hope that you'll have the chance to come see it before it comes down!
We are hard at work searching the world over to find the creme for our Parlour Shop ! Expect to see inky octopus pillows from Wonder Thunder of Seattle, Knitted animal brooches from Sarah McNeil of Melbourne, spectacular prints from Julia Pott of London, and crazy sexy cooldrawings from Cat Lauigan of Brooklyn in the very near future!
The opening Party All I Can Do is Dream was totally awesome!
Friends and lovers and hometown heroes showed up to give us hugs and high fives. We had 200+ people come through, as well as five bouquets flowers, 148 cupcakes, and 15 bottles of champagne. You guys are rad!
