Back in November 2013 I had my art show opening at Babeland in Seattle!
Haha, I know it’s a little late, but here are some photos from the reception, which was completely packed! By the time the camera came out, the crowd had had a chance to thin out a little, but one of the Babeland employees told me it was the largest art opening they’d had since they’d come on board several years ago. So that was neat!
Everyone who chatted with me was so lovely and thoughtful. I’m an anxious person, always predicting the Worst Case Scenario before every social event, and it’s so, so, so nice to be reminded that, oh yeah, the people who read my comics are funny and smart and interesting and a pleasure to talk to.
(Can you see all the bottles of lube I used to keep my prints flat on the table?)
I loved how Babeland arranged my art on their walls!
My black and white original pages of Oh Joy, Sex Toy were perfectly accented by the brightly colored bouquets of real sex toys beneath them. Perfect.
Babeland suggested featuring some of my personal favorite toys just for the show, and what better way to do that than with my own illustrated endorsements sitting right next to them.
I can’t tell you how fulfilling it was to have my work hung on the walls of the very first sex store I ever set foot in, over a decade ago. This specific Babeland was personally responsible for introducing me to the world of toys, sex positivity, and my very first orgasm (Which I wrote about previously here)
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart to everyone who came out to the show and bought everything I’d brought with me (save for two prints). It was an incredibly night and I’m so grateful for experiencing it!
Mark your calendars, because September 11th, 2014, I’ll be taking this show to one of New York’s Babelands too! Which one is still To Be Determined, but it’s happening.
