Good morning Baren

Here is the new price page that Dave will add to the website... we agree that
the price should be $75 for individual works

individually. Use the 'Add to Cart' button on each print page. Each print is $75
in portfolios containing 32 prints. There are two portfolios; the contents of
each one is shown on the Prints page. They can be ordered here. Each portfolio
is $$1200 (or both together for $2000)
in 'custom' portfolios of at least ten prints. Begin by adding individual prints
to the shopping cart with the buttons on each print page. Once ten different
prints are in the cart, the discount price - $50 - will be applied. Your prints
will be shipped packed in one of the portfolio cases.

On another exciting note I have been corresponding with Mercy Corps and we are
working out the party for the 4th of August at Pacific NW College of Art...all
is going well, we have sold $200 worth of prints so far and have barely started.
I was at an event last night in Beaverton, a suburb of Portland, about 15 miles
west, and ran into a business man who has offered to show the prints in his
retail space for the month of September. 15 miles does not sound like far, but
there about 100,000 people who live here west of Portland. So it will be a good
thing. He is doing an opening and will send out 1000 cards to promote the show.
A win win for us.
It is amazing how things take on a life of their own, isn't it?
My best to you all

Subject: The Peril of Too Many Pelicans
Posted by: Sharri

Sometimes a block just cries to be printed in many different ways, and such is the case of my pelicans.  They have been on "fabric" and they have been made into a "dress", but they were not content.  There was a piece of marbled paper in my flat files and they screamed to be printed on it.  Between the Pelicans and the paper wailing "oil spill, oil spill" I had no choice.  This cacophony must be stilled.  The result:

 And, I was happy with this until..... one day as the print was lying on my framing table another print of the same image, but on the filmy Japanese paper that I used to make the dress, fell on top of this one.  Oh my!  This led an entirely new dimension.  So, I lined them up and then very carefully adhered  the two together.  There is no going back now.  Here is the final product:

This set my oil slick more in the background and gave the whole scene another dimension - almost making it look 3D without the glasses.  Whoa, Nellie!  I could be on to something!

Subject: City of the World grows
Posted by: Maria

Note to citizens: While I "have you" listening, please don't forget to email any details you want published on the web and the information colophon. The colophon is going to be great, a true book containing all the individual contributions, the collective print, all the info available on each block and process photos.

Page to send in information on your very own "city block" is here:

Here is Tibi Chelcea's piece of the city, coming at you from Nashville Tennessee, USA:
