Ties is showing up at The Basement gallery show this weekend. Ira has new bookmarks out and the preview books will be showing up for, hopefully, the last event. I am coming to the end of the book! All pages have been scripted and I am inking my heart out to get the rest done.
In completely different news, I go to the farmer's market every week (now that I'm unemployed it's my one indulgence) and I always find something new. This week it was a salt vendor. Yes you read that correctly. He had many varieties of salts, including smoked salt and even offered to host a salt tasting party. He was also selling these planks of hickory for home smoking. Hopefully I won't lite the house on fire.
I also found these unusual fruit. They are white inside and have big black seeds. They taste a bit like a pear. Can anyone name them? Just curious.
So now you have a little glimpse into where I find inspiration for the things Ira does. You meet the strangest people out there!
