WNYBAC Member Show : Artvoice Feature

Woah! Artvoice chose to feature Honey & the Whirlwind by Tim Ferrara for the second time- this time it’s because he’s exhibiting in the  WNYBAC member’s show. Dig it! It’s on view till July 9. If you ever come to Buffalo, NY you really need to visit the Western New York Book Arts Collective. It’s a really amazing place.

Also featured in the article is a hand made stab stitch book by Anii (me lol!). It contains sketches with the theme of Cherry Blossom Dream. It was made with Washi paper and I quite enjoy doodling in it with copic markers. (I have a post about the books I make on my personal blog: link )

What are you waiting for?? Go check out all the amazingness at the Western New York Book Arts Collective!

Ranzatsu (乱雑) / Buffalo Infringment Festival

Anii (+ Tim) are working on Ranzatsu (乱雑) for the Buffalo Infringment Festival

Ranzatsu is the Japanese word for clutter/disorder/promiscuity. This is an exercise in dialogue through participatory comics/manga. Part Performance, Part Installation. There is no audience. Everyone joins to create a comic dialogue from upcycled manga/comics/their own hand. It can never be finished.

Check out the other Awesome Infringers: link. Also help support the Kickstarter that’s makin’ it all possible!
