Houston -- Bayou


We showed the Desert Triangle in Houston, at the 5th Annual  "It Came from the Bayou" Inkslingers event, on Sunday, April 24th, at St Arnold's Brewery.



Last year I came to the previous "It Came from the Bayou" print fair, and was very impressed.  So I really wanted to come again.

STEAM ROLLER PRINTS

In 2014, there was a steamroller printing event in El Paso during Chalk the Block.  Later those prints were shown at a museum in downtown San Antonio.  So Cynthia Evans signed up to do a steamroller print in Houston, and follow that tradition:

Thank you very much to Carlos Hernandez, for hosting the Burning Bones Welcome, and organizing the "It Came from the Bayou" print fair.  He had a print show at Flatbed Press in Austin:

While in Austin I also visited the Mexic-Arte Museum, which had a great print show up -- Obra Gráfica: Selections from the Mexic-Arte Museum Print Collection.

  1. I've been to events at other places, but this was my first time in here. Great Los Angeles venues. Food was good and seating was very comfortable. Also, very good view from where I sat. This is such a cool venue and the atmosphere was equally amazing.
