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.

sponsored the larger event --


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.

Houston was great!

We sold 8 prints at the print fair -- 2 from Zeke Peña, Tanya Rich, Rogo, Tim Razo, Mykl Wells, Jesus "Cimi" Alvarado, and a non-carpeta print from Gonazlo Espinosa.
