Guumon at FOE in Northampton, MA, through June 7!
If you've been following this blog for a while, you might remember my first custom Guumon, a collaboration with my friend Brian Mahony. Brian (who lives right across the street from me; isn't that awesome?) currently has a big shown at FOE in Northampton, MA, and, while I was in DC during the opening, Chris and I took a roadtrip there yesterday.
I have a new custom piece in the show, which combines a traditional Scandinavian geometric motif with some freeform crochet.
It was an honor to be in the company of a lot of famous artists, including the likes of OsirisOrion and blobpus (who did the paint job below):

If you live in the Northampton area, or are planning a trip to WEBS in the next two weeks, stop by. Even if you miss the Guus, stop by the gallery; I love places like this where, if you love the art enough, you can actually afford to buy some of it.
