Etsy and Patreon
We are still working to edit video to finally launch our Patreon and Etsy with lots of good things available including a limited edition Meat Meet poster, APE shirts, YWC shirts and stickers and more. In the meantime, all of our posters are available for $15 (packaging and shipping included) on demand.
We’re exploring a collaboration with Cindy and Wonderground and Red Stick Reads to implement the latter’s visionary new garden space. We’re also beginning to explore working with Blackbird Letterpress on a series of botanical and mycological posters and artifacts. Stay posted!
In more serious news, Mat was interviewed this week on WBRZ about lead pollution in our neighborhood as the renovation of many houses takes off, posing a risk to neighborhood kids and a need for lead abatement awareness. EPA has lots of good info on how to do renovations safely.
