It was so great to meet Judith and see Full Circle Press! I was really disappointed about the canceled dinner too. Judith gave us the printed coasters and menu, and they look so good! Was that your design?
I do know about Henry Darger, and my artwork completely changed when I watched that documentary about him. His work (and his life) is a huge influence on me.
I love taking a break from printing, and spend some time making books. I always think of printing as an energizing process, but bookbinding as a quiet, meditative practice. It helps me find a quiet place and relax. I think printing and binding are the perfect combination!
I hope we'll get to meet sometime soon too. My best,
